This is how the more redone side of the room looks now. I unfortunately neglected to take a picture of how the room looked before. Imagine an off-white wall with none of the shelving.
The first day, we painted the walls. We painted one wall red, and the other three and a half (I'm allowing room for doorways and stuff) the same creamy white they were before.
Before we got to work on the red wall, we gave it a little decoration.
Just to show our fandom. By the way, we redid this room before DKR came out.
After the first layer of paint, you could still see traces of Batman
It's a good thing we still had another can and a half of paint.
I took the initiative to bake a snack. What other than our favorite, chocolate chip cookies?
I somehow managed to make one of the cookies without any chocolate chips, so our dog Homer got that one. He loved it. His very first whole cookie. He did have some trouble getting it off the ground...
On day 2, my two sisters installed the shelves. I think. I might be getting my dates a little mixed up. But I think it was day two. I didn't help with this at all.
On day 3: Ikea. We obviously had to buy new jars and containers for all of our baking supplies.
I loved Ikea. Best place in the world. My new life goal is to get a 24 hour job there. The dozens of bedrooms and kitchens put of display on the second floor made me feel like I was in heaven. Who would have though pulling out every drawer in a model kitchen could be so much fun? I also took advantage of the beds in the mock bedrooms. Very comfortable. I really could live there. They even have a restaurant!
That evening, we put everything in the room, and voila, we have the newly renamed Bakery!
Oh, the beauty of it!
