My Back Room Makeover

My Back Room Before Remodeling

So I have decided to post on my back room as I do it. Instead of waiting until it’s all done, I figured I would make it into a project that someone could follow along with. If they choose to that is.


So I have to start off with saying that this will be my first ever whole room remodeling job. I have never stomped ceilings before.

And I have never layed tile in an entire room. I have painted of course. But I want to try something different with my spare room. Something I have never done. And that hopefully comes out looking awesome!

So I am going to post some pictures of what my back room looked like at it’s peak of being cluttered up with stuff. (And I do mean it was cluttered!)

And then I will post some pictures of right before I started with the remodeling. And then I will post some as I am working on the ceilings.

Which I am in the middle of right now. One thing that is going to be different about this before and after job is the fact that I am going to be transforming my entire room with very little money involved.

Most of the stuff I will be using was actually completely free! I will show the materials as I use them and let you know what was free and what was not.


As well as let you know the cost it was to me and I will have links in here for anyone who might be interested in purchasing some of their own remodeling items.

So I will get started with some of my pictures I am going to share with you.

Here are the pictures right before I got started with the remodeling

Shown below in the slideshow are the pictures of what the room looked like a few months ago. Before I had cleaned it out of all of my mountains of stuff!

So this is my project that I will be undertaking for the next few weeks. And I am hoping that it does not take me no longer than a few weeks! Like I said I have never done an entire room of remodeling before. And I do have the boyfriend to help me some with this. But other than that I am on my own. And hoping that it turns out well!

So stay with me if you would like to keep up with my progress. And to see what the room looks like as I go along. I am already almost done with the ceilings. And I will post pictures of the finished look in my next blog I write. Thanks for reading. And good luck to all of you on your own project adventures. Happy projecting!


I am 47 and have 3 grown daughters. And I have 1 granddaughter who I am crazy about! I am a recovering heroin addict who has now been clean for over 7 years now. Well I should say clean from needles for that amount of time. I can’t say completely clean because my Dr’s had me on methadone pills for a while when I was first released from the hospital. I then self medicated myself and went to a Dr for a while for suboxone. Which I then used to get myself off of the methadone pills. I was paralyzed as a result of using needles. My Dr’s never thought that I would walk again with the amount of infection they had to remove from my spinal cord. Yet I am now walking! Unassisted even. I do not require a cane or anything to walk now, is what I mean by unassisted. I do better with a cane but I can actually do it without it. So I have been back to school and almost have my associates degree in general studies. I was focusing on going to school to be a drug and alcohol counselor. I have changed my mind on that now and I have been focusing on doing affiliate sales and working on my website. These projects that I have been doing for the last 4-5 years is what has been literally saving my life! And keeping me off of the drugs! I am trying to bring about some awareness concerning addiction and what can happen to a person if they use needles with my website. Though I changed my mind on working as a counselor I still want to try and help others out there who are still struggling with their addictions. So I hope that you will follow me either on my blog or my Facebook pages and help support getting addicts the help that they really need. Instead of the stereotype labels they get here in America as well as the criminal label they acquire when they cannot just quit their use of drugs or alcohol.
