Mister Master

Or is it a missus?
So far the renovations I’ve shown you have been pretty basic. The master bedroom/bathroom were where the major renovations happened upstairs. There is a lot to go through so I’ll show you the master bedroom this week and the master bath/closet next week.
This is what the room looked before:

This was the only room in the house where we moved walls – to accommodate a larger walk-in closet! We also took out the double french doors and replaced them with one door that matched the rest of the doors in the house. The layout used to look like this:

 And this is the layout now:

In addition to moving the walls and taking out one of the doors, we also:
  • Replaced the baseboards and trim. We stained the baseboards, trim and doors with “Cloud White” by Benjamin Moore.
  • Scraped the “popcorn” ceilings and painted/retextured. Again, we used “Cloud White”.
  • Painted the walls. The colour we used was Spider’s Web by Dulux.
  • Replaced the carpet.
  • Replaced the ceiling fan with a chandelier for a little bling.
Here is a few pics of how the room progressed:

This guy was hanging out in the room when the clean up began. I couldn’t resist snapping a picture of him. I kinda wish my vacuum came with a face and a name (are you listening, Dyson?!)

Obviously, the room needs some work! We bought a king sized bed and used our night tables and console table from the old house, but we’ll have to buy more furniture. We’ll do that when we’ve saved some money again! I would like to putting a small seating area in the corner and perhaps a low long console table for display items on the other wall. Then of course, I’ll need to get drapes, artwork, new bedding (we’re using our queen sized coverlet still), etc., etc. I’ll post an update when I finally get the money/time/energy to finish it off! In the meantime, it’s a good place to have pre-bedtime dance parties (yes, that happens)!

Thanks for reading y’all!
