I know I've been gone a while...


But whose Bedroom is this?

...no actually folks...I have not been blogging because Cindy & I finally got sick of our tired old budoir...and decided to kick it up a notch...so. This is the final product. I call it "Modern Loft Chiq', Eclectic Shabby Designed on a Dime-Thai Style" (or Ty Style...for all you Ty fans out there). On top of that we got rid of the DUN. Dun. Duh..u..uh.h..... Water Bed (to understand that last part you have to picture Teri Roy standing in front of you with her hand held horizontal above her head...as you read each dun...she moves her hand down signifying the notes go down...and the last note is about at her waist...like in old movies when the vilian comes on screen) ...after sleeping on a water bed since I was a sophomore in High School (the same water bed mind you)...it is quite a change. A nice change. Cindy also decided that she wanted to snuggle close...so we opted for a full size bed in trade for the extra room in our room. It is a nice trade off...and we are getting used to sleeping close. I like it. Also I might mention that instead of buying a bed...I was able to convince Cindy that I could buy the tools to build a bed...for the same money...and then I would have some tools to work with on future projects (like the Hardwood Floors that are going in the living room next {shout out to Jonny Jeppesen}...so I built our new "Platform Bed" from the old water bed frame...re-stained it..etc. re-did the chest, (of drawers)[...get your mind out of the Dr.90210 gutter] did a skim coat of sheetrock mud on the walls, with heavy trowell marks...and a faux finish paint scheme.

To recap:
A Layer of Mud, Primer, & Three Coats of Paint: Three weeks and $178
A Table Saw, Compound Miter Saw, Air-compressor w/ nail gun: $401
New Platform Bed: Free
Creating a Warm Romantic Space to Spend Time with your Sweety: PRICELESS!
(and definately worth all the effort)...thanks for your help Cin...I love you. Posted by Picasa
