The Master Bedroom

This is what we started out with.. nothing absurdly ugly just drab, old and lived in.. and not by us. 
I notice that my before pictures lack pillows and a blanket.. we have those.. lol.. we had already started moving things out of the room when I remembered wait.. I need pictures!!




That white door at the end is our old bathroom and the doors to the left our old his and her walk in closets.. that entire nook was taken in to create our new master bath :)



The his in hers were converted into a larger joint closet.. with it's door to the left and the door to the new bathroom to the right



The inside of the closet customized with ClosetMaid and the walls painted a beautiful Shell Coral by Behr.. seriously this picture does not do the color justice.


The walls painted and floors refinished.. I'll tell you the nightmare that is refinishing your floors on another day..




And then work began on our great big Ikea hack.. this is one of my favorite things about the room.. love. The little space in the middle may or may not have a tv in there one day.. we are undecided.


The knobs found at Home Goods the finishing touch.



The chandelier was hung


 The rug lain


Old furniture brought back in



Being back in our room feels great.. the new room feels great. It feels like us now. 
Now thinking window hangings and art.. hmm

Growth - As these leaves inched there way up the wall they provided the wall with a framing almost. The leaves were still a lovely green the effects of autumn only mildly visible with hints of oranges and reds slowly creeping in.

The New Master Bath

M and I were tickled by the fact that most of you thought the before picture of our teeny tiny master bath was in fact the after.




We were constantly bumping into each other.. everything was golden and most things were being held together with caulk.. the previous owners solution for most things..oh and how can we forget our very own bathroom phone.. lol


Our plan from the moment we bought this house was to use this space to create a larger bathroom. The two doors to the left are the his and her walk in closets.. we got rid of those doors and created a new door.. but more about the closet later. 

We hired the contractor, worked out the design and then came the fun but hard part picking a color palette, buying the vanity.. choosing tiles. So many options! 



The door to the left is for the new joint walk in closet and the door on the right to the new master bathroom. and now the after










TIPS:
-Pinterest is both a god send and the devil.. look at the pictures.. identify what you like and then stop. The more you see the more confused and overwhelmed you will be.
-We.. I fell in love with the vanity on Overstock but in the reviews most people complained about pieces arriving broken or cracked. We could not afford to take that risk. M preferred we purchase from a place with a brick mortar.. The same vanity was available in Home Depot for a few $$ more. I called them and told them I felt more comfortable shopping with them and they price matched it.. WIN! It never hurts to ask.
- Listen to your contractor, this is their job they know things you may not have ever thought of. But in the end you have to also follow your gut, they don't know everything. Both the contractors we interviewed insisted we not create a half wall between the shower and vanity but we held firm and I am so glad we did.

lately

Where do I begin?

So the ankle.. remember that? If not click here for a refresher.. well two and a half months later it still hurts. I have done physical therapy, had an MRI and still no solution.. now I am on prescription medicine.. something to fix the nerve damage I have along with the partially torn ligament. Yup.. it just keeps getting better. Boy do I know how to sprain an ankle. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel.. I have been on the pills almost two weeks and I can feel the difference.. thank God!

The contractor finally left.. almost three months later. It started with the master bath and bedroom.. when we started to rip out the old carpet it made the most sense to rip out all the carpet and refinish the floors.. and since we were ripping out carpets why not just repaint too.. and so the job took on a life of it's own.. and we are done! I can not wait to get settled in and share with you the results.. But here are a few BEFORE's

 Teeny Tiny Master Bath

Deep Orangey Red Walls in D's Room

Speaking of D.. his kindergarten teacher assigns a monthly project.. they started out simple enough.. a family tree, a short mystery story; getting the kids used to the idea of projects..and then last month we were to make a diorama for Black History Month. It was fun but in all honesty I did 50% of the work.. he is after all five. This one we are to make yet another diorama.. for Woman's History Month. Help me out.. who is your favorite historic woman? 


H on the other hand is so talkative.. he is picking up new words.. mimicking everything we say.. and he has begun the master the pout.. he does it so well paired with the arms folded across his chest and an "I am so angry stare" sometimes he accompanies it with a growl.. lol. I am still waiting for a chance to capture the look on camera.
