First, I need to remind myself what the bedroom looked like before. It’s one of those things that the memory of the bedroom disappeared about a day after we tore it apart.
The master bedroom was one of the last great rooms in the house that still projected “women’s dormitory”. It had the industrial grey carpeting, a tiny door frame, and the outline of flourescent lights on the ceiling. Despite all these reasons to renovate, I think the main reason we renovated was because Gogo just did not want to be house-trained in this room. The carpet had so many layers of old carpet, carpet padding, and carpet squares that anything spilled on the floor got permanently absorbed into the floor.
So now let’s take a look at what it looked like during demolition…
And now here’s the finished product!
The floor is brand new. We put in wide-plank knotty pine and stained it very dark.
The wallpaper is from
This is the armoire that David brought back from London.
And here’s the new closet.
UPDATE: okay. So, I didn’t really want to leave the top floor bedroom. It was cozy, it was simple, and it was closer to my X-Men bathroom. I was worried that the new master bedroom was a little too fancy.
