While You Were Out

I had been planning for about a month to makeover our room while Zach was gone on Trek. We moved into our house a few months ago, and we managed to decorate every part of our house...minus our bedroom. I was ready to have a 'master suite', and I didn't want to run every idea by Zach...so I just did it all while he was gone! I could not have done any of this without my mom. So THANKS Mom! You're a jewel.

Before
yes, those boxes are still there from move-in day. eww.

While we were in the mood, we went ahead and put up some pictures in the hallway. I didn't take any before pictures...but just imagine the same wall with nothing on it. You get the picture.

It was a lot of fun to do all this while Zach was gone, and his reaction was pretty funny. I will have to post the secret video footage once I get it edited (Zach's request). We plan on adding more when the time is right, but I am happy with what we accomplished in 4 days with 2 boys competing for our attention.
