Well...we survived. I never want to see primer or black paint ever again. We got the rooms switched around in less than 48 hours. Mike and I are wiped out (completely and totally). We stayed up until two every morning touching up and trimming out after our friends helped us do the painting.
It went pretty smoothly and wasn't nearly as costly as I thought it was going to be. Basically, all we bought was paint and a few little clearance tchotchkies for P1's room. The rest of the stuff we had. It's amazing what a can of primer can do to old furniture. Some of it, too, was thinking of different ways to use stuff. All of P3's stuff was hand-me-down from her big sister. She was thrilled to have us paint a "pink princess room". Owen is the only one who's kind of left in a temporary lurch. We got rid of the crib/toddler bed and changing table and high chair. There's no more baby stuff in our house and that's a strange feeling after thirteen years of baby stuff. We're going to have to keep our eye out for a nice twin bed for him. So...to detractors who will decry the nature of P4's sleeping arrangements... hold your horses!! It's temporary. LOL
