Thursday, July 7, 2011: I showed off our lovely masters, complete with blue wallpaper.
Wednesday, July 13, 2011: Demo and paint choices
And, oh yea, it's March 2012 now. Yikes.
I actually never got a shot of the bedroom before we started, but I have the listing photo from when we bought the house. It is not our furniture:
Yea. Here's what we ended up with:
New paint, carpet, crown moulding, baseboards, closet doors, bathroom door (the old one was a full door that opened into and banged into the window), plantation shutters, and a ceiling fan to help move the air in the summer.
And the bathroom, which opened into the bedroom and into the hallway, like a little walk-through passage way. There was a door in between the two halves to make a powder room when guests were over, meaning there were 3 doors in this tiny little bathroom. We removed two of the doors to enclose the bathroom in the bedroom making it a complete master suite.
Yes, that is all brass hardware.
No more hallway door!
Where the door was, a built-in medicine cabinet with full mirrored door.
Hubs closed in the old closet with slider doors and built this instead. The laundry chute is in the bottom.
Everything is new. The bathroom was completely and totally gutted and the hubs (and I) did everything except install the shower doors. We are so happy with this space and love to go in there to relax and get away from our grass cloth living room disaster.
