Reading Loft

This is Cole's room with his built in closet and new paint job. I love the colors. They are Acapulco Sand and Waterfall blue. The new carpet is being installed tomorrow. The ladder should be in tomorrow or Tuesday. Completed by Wednesday let's hope.
Savannah's room colors are Potpourri green and raspberry mousse pink. I thought it would look nice for her to have one main focal wall with vertical stripes. Cole's room has two focal walls with horizontal stripes. Notice how everything is cleared away for the new carpet!
This window was the sliding glass door two days ago. I am so glad to have that door gone. I hated that my daughter had a glass door in her room. This way she can actually open the window and enjoy the cool breeze in the evenings.
I was just trying to get a picture showing the two side walls with the horizontal stripes.
This shows the reading loft with the closet and paint job.

The reading loft has recessed lighting with a three way switch so it can be controlled by Cole or Savannah. The lights are really nice 6" recessed LED lights so they won't be hot to the touch for the kids.
We completely tore out all the walls and ceilings in both rooms. There was no lighting so we installed four 4" canned lights. The 4" really look nice, and I thought I was saving money buying the smaller size, until I saw how much the casings cost.
Savannah's focal wall. Paying someone $2oo dollars to do the painting. SOOOOOO worth it!!!!
Savannah's new window. It's not too big. 48 X 36. The next size up without having to special order was a 60" which was too big I thought.

Anyways, we are really excited for this to be complete and I will add some more pictures once we get the ladders in and the rooms put back together.
