Wayland's Room

 Do you have a junk room? 
We have currently been in Arkansas for 2 years. We have been renovating our house for the whole time, depending on just how important it was to get finished. For example our bedrooms were first. We had our room and the boys shared a room. At one point the room above was going to be an office. Now our "office" area in in my sewing room, which I don't mind at all. So we kept stacking stuff that had no place to go yet, because of our renovating. So, that is how our junk room was formed. As time went on and Wayland began to get older, we realized he needed his own space. At our house in Texas they both had their own rooms. So, months and months ago I decided that this room would become his room. He was very excited and I was very overwhelmed. Once I was determined to get his room together, it took about 3 days to completely clean it out. The hardest part was figuring out what to do with the stuff that does not have a home. First I cleaned out the trash then I sorted the stuff into plastic storage bins labeled, Living room, Wayland's Room, Christmas, etc. Then I neatly stacked everything in our to be Laundry Room. Yes, another junk room but it is organized and labeled. 

 Here he is wondering
 "When will I have my own room again?"

My husband painted the room from yellow to white.

I made some curtains.

 We laid the flooring. Thankfully we had some flooring already stained.

It was easier to bring the boards in through the window.

 Only 2 boards to stain and the curtains are almost complete.

This is the flooring throughout our whole house.

Last night was his first night to sleep in his own room, again. 
Now to get to the box that's labeled Wayland's Room. 

Now brothers can be friends, once again.
