Our bedroom is finished! Out of all the rooms we have completed, I am enjoying this room the most. It feels so nice to finally have a little haven, a place to rest, after basically camping out for all of these years. Why didn’t we do our bedroom first?
The room was in awful shape before with peeling wallpaper and holes in the walls.
This room was my home office for years. How did I ever work in here? Lets face it, the room before is not at all inspiring.
The bedroom feels very warm and inviting now.
I framed and hung artwork over the bed from a printmaking course I took while in college.
I am in love with the little closet we had built into the dead space behind the wall. I like that the closet feels like it has always been here.
Our contractor did an amazing job building the door and matching the trim with the existing trim in the house.
This room was missing baseboards and some of the original trim.
New baseboards and trim were installed, replicating the rest of the trim in the house.
These windows were salvaged. We had added them to the house when we worked on the exterior. They needed some attention.
The windows are now working smoothly.
Open bedroom door and closed bathroom door.
Closet door, bedroom door and bathroom door.
The armoire survived being pulled through a second story window and is just slightly worse for the wear.
The bedroom ceiling has been repaired. The plaster was filled with numerous cracks. I’m just glad to say good-bye to the hideous ceiling fan!
Closet before and after. The elfa closet system is working out well.
