remodel. move. repeat...

For those of you who are familiar with the Cracroft basement, you know it's a mess to be seen! And due to my lack of monetary funding and my busy "pre-teacher" lifestyle, I had quite an unfortunate fate: 
Moving Home. Dun, dun, dun...

My Mom and I gave it 5 months before we took charge of Elder Cracroft's bedroom, and I wish I had the photos to show what it looked like before. But if you're reading this blog, you probably know me well enough to have seen it. (If not, I cross my heart you're not a stalker.) After a long 10 days of work, day in and day out, here is the finished project...




Oohhhhh, and the much acclaimed bathroom. 
This was a treat to tackle. It took me a good few hours scrubbing the "missed shots" off of the toilet seat and it's surroundings. Thanks, Bros.

(notice jon's awesome blue tile from 1998)

After all was said and done, Caitles came into my room and said 
(and I quote),
"Ohhhh my!!! I LOVE your new room. It's pink!!!!!"
followed by the squeal of a 4-year-old...
She loved it so much we had to have a sleepover in it!

And because my mom's now on remodel fire, here's round two...
...wish us luck!

(This blog was made possible by the help of MomT and Bro. Without them, I would have screwed the whole thing up. AND I wouldn't have been able to get a single piece of my furniture transported without their help! A huge Thank Ya to mi family!)

Super cute room and bathroom! I watch hours of HGTV day to day, so any time I see a post that has to do with remodeling, I have to check it out! Great Job!
