“Southport version of Extreme Makeover”

For the last week, we have been renovating Vic & Cindy’s master bedroom in anticipation of Vic’s arrival here.  He lost his job in MN, which is a bad thing, but is a good thing because he gets to move here to be with his family.  We wanted to do this for them, because we appreciate them so much, and to give them a haven to get away from all the “young people.” Since they always take care of themselves last, we knew their room would never get done, unless we did it now.  And it’s a good thing… the room started out bad, and was only getting worse with the addition of miscallaneous things that didn’t belong anywhere else.  Here’s some “before” pictures.

wow!

the couch was a new addition to the room… you could say it’s what pushed us over the top…

After we started moving stuff…

room between bathroom and bedroom.

Ugg!

Ok… enough of that… now for the “After” stuff!
