29th Avenue: A Dark Master Bedroom Gets a Colorful Makeover - Part I

By: Capreek May 12, 2015

We bought the 29th Avenue house at the end of 2013 and have been slowly giving this 1920s bungalow a facelift, room by room: first the bathroom, then the office, and now the master bedroom! The previous owners had painted every room in, apparently, the darkest colors they could find.

So, "Operation Cheer Up" was born.    Continue Reading

Little Adventurer Boy's Room Makeover!

Yesterday, we told you all about our plans to make over our little boy's bedroom. Before we get to the big reveal, let's do a mini recap.
