How fun I"m joining in with Carrie and Susan for blog parties! Oh go on and click on their names to see all the fun going on!
Over a year ago we remodeled our home so that we could move my parents in with us. They are in their upper 80's and we wanted them not to worry about their home, taking care of things, doctor appointments and managing every day things which had become very burdensome.
I will let you decide what is the before and after shots! Hahaha...believe me you will be able to tell!
The upstairs belonged to our teenagers! Every gadget, tv, playstation, etc known to a teenager they had in our farmhouse. After all you can only do so many farm chores, the sun goes down and it is time to be a
teenager! They are all gone to college now, so we gave my parents the downstairs master bedroom and we redid the upstairs kid zone and made it ours.
My wonderful husband said I could repaint everything walls and furniture we already owned....so I went with Farmhouse-Shabby!
The boys tv cabinet now white holds our little tv....
The bookshelf we had to slice the upper edge off to accomodate the ceilings upstairs. All farm/animal books...
The bathroom beyond the doorway is new since the upstairs had a tiny toilet and sink area...not even a bathroom.My parents are all settled in and content for the most part. I think that it is the navigating (living life) through rough waters and peaceful waters that counts just as much as getting to shore! We are trying to navigate successfully .....thanks for visiting a little bit of my voyage!
