Master bedroom, before and after.

We moved out of our house while we were working on the kitchen foundation. We were anxious to move back and decided to finish our master bedroom and laundry room and just live in those two rooms until we could get the rest finished.

Here is our bedroom pretty much as it was when we bought the place. It had three big old windows which I took apart, reglazed and repainted. ( A whole lot of work.)

This chimney got taken out. I liked the wall paper but it had to go, a little unfinished :)

This is looking down the hall into our bedroom. I guess I didn't mention, on the left of the room we moved a stairway and made that area a walk in closet and master bath.

This is is looking out from our bedroom to the hall and kids rooms.


Shiny floors!

Bathroom door before and after.

This is close to how it looks now, I need to take some really good pictures, sorry about the quality.

Finished bathroom!

I decided to go all white thinking I could always paint the drywall if I got tired of it. So far I haven't!

I'm glad we were able to reuse the beadboard, it adds so much texture to the whiteness.

The tub was free, it had a crack. We were able to get it patched and it's been so nice, especially in the winter!

I don't have any pictures of the closet, I'll post some if I ever get it looking organized. Doubt that will happen till we move out!

Next up:

Laundry room.

Edited to add:

Here are some more recent pictures of the bathroom.
I'm having a hard time finding the right light to take pictures, hope to eventually have better ones.
