Bedroom Reno Sneak Peek

Written by Amelia

We’ve been in our new house for three weeks now. It’s finally starting to feel like home especially since the bedroom has been finished. This room is one of the reasons I initially said “No way, Jose” to this house. Hideous yellow on all the walls AND the ceiling, very little light (that window faces a second floor enclosed porch), and terrible vinyl floors.


That sconce. Puke. Actually, this must’ve been taken after we primed the ceiling.


That paint color. Double puke. The pieces you see on the floor go to our new closet. More on that later.

Here’s the after:












Things still aren’t finished, but now we have a skylight for stargazing from bed, gorgeous hardwood floors, a crisp white ceiling, and and rich brown walls. Isn’t that little door so funny? I guess it’s because you have to step up into the room from the landing, but my poor man has started ducking through all doorways out of habit (even sometimes in public!).

The master closet is almost finished, and what a closet it will be… complete with washer and dryer. Stay tuned!

    Thanks, everyone. I think the master closet will be next then the guest room.
