All done!

Checked off the list!

The Little Man's Cave is officially done and all that's left to do is mop the floors and windows and move in furniture and stuff and add window treatments.

Here's what we started with


We scraped loose paint, removed old hardware, filled holes, sanded, replaced and repaired window hardware (thanks to Mrs G of our contractor team), spackled, taped, caulked and painted everything.

Here's the list of paints we used:
walls - Glidden's "New Grass Green" in flat finish
ceiling & wall - Behr's Ultra "Pure White" in flat finish
trim - Behr's Ultra "Pure White" in semi-gloss finish
stripes - Valspar "Boat Blue" in satin finish
door knobs - Rustoleum ORB spray paint in satin finish
Kilz primer

Now comes the fun part for this room: decorating and moving in :o)


  1. I really like the green plus the fun stripes. It really looks like a boy's own personal room, which is great for giving him the chance to make it his own. AWESOME!

  2. That looks great! I can't wait to see it all done up with furniture and accessories. And a boy!

  3. The green wouldn't have been my first choice (it is in your face green, I'm telling you) but together with the feature wall it really works :o) The little man is ecstatic; we allowed him to choose the colors for his room and he's just itching to move in :o)
