Oreo sees the new room! {Fix It & Finish It}

One of the many reasons we needed to re-do this room was that we wanted a door to our backyard. Currently we have a front door and a side door, but no door that opens directly into the backyard. So to let Oreo out into the backyard, we have to walk him out the side door and around to the back gate. It hasn’t been a high priority, but when we started talking about renovating this room last year, we decided that we wanted to put a hole in the wall and put in a door because it would lead to the backyard. But we were so nervous to DIY it. That’s a big part of why it took us so long to get around to working on the room. So we were ecstatic to let the Fix It & Finish It crew do the room for us! 🙂

After all the cameras and crew left, it was finally time for Oreo to check out the newly renovated room. Keep in mind, in his world, this room has always just been a dark, empty room. No furniture, no carpet, and definitely no door to the outside. 🙂 Here was his first reaction:

 He runs in and is like “HELLO OUTSIDE!!!” and then “oh look! There’s other stuff in here! Must sniff it all! But OOOOUTSIIIIIDE is calling me!” 🙂

We all love the new room. With all the nice weather lately the door has just been open all the time and Oreo is in and out at will. It’s just wonderful. 🙂 I know I’m blowing up all the social media with this stuff, but I want to share it now while it’s fresh on my mind. Plus it’s been SO hard keeping so much of it a secret for so long, haha! 🙂 So prepare yourself… there might be another behind the scenes post coming. Just sayin’. 😉
Love Rach
