Makeover!

While Duana & Janette were on their 35th Anniversary vacation to AZ, we broke into their house, and gave their bedroom a MAKEOVER! Not that it was terribly out-of-date, but there had been mention of an "update", and we wanted to give it a fresher look!

Most of the credit goes to Ellen & Carmen for doing most of the planning, and us and  Kenny & Lichen nodded and agreed excitedly, envisioning what the outcome would be!! Then in one weekend, us and Hugh & Carmen got to work with paint and our decorating skills and......viola!

Take a look.....

AFTER:











When they got home, they WERE surprised! However, first very confused for a while. We thought the first place they would go after a week long vacation was their bedroom...but the bathroom and facebook came first! I left one of the extra new towels on the bathroom counter...which they thought was odd...but maybe someone from meeting there on Sunday left it?? Next was Facbook, where they found a comment of "today is the day", which really confused them too....
Until FINALLY they opened the door to their bedroom, and found it completely different!
First thing Dad noticed? The new nightstand and new alarm clock...LOL.

What a fun and neat idea! You guys did a great job! Question
though... What is the ibuprofen about? ;)

Love the ibuprofen picture. If Duane would have went to get some he would've been tipped off by the empty bottle :) HAHA.
