next up…

Well, we’ve set our sights on our next project…the master bedroom! After almost two years of sleeping in a room that’s “shabby chic” (to put it extremely nicely) we’re ready to grow up and have a comfortable room to lay our heads. Our plan is to try to get it all done over the next few weeks, working only on weeknights so as to keep our weekends free for more pleasant outings, like beaches, picnics, flea markets, and not working on the house.

Day One: Clear everything out

So these pictures aren’t true “before” shots, since we did actually have a lot of crap in that room. Now it’s all living in the guest room, along with us for the next few weeks.

The closet that’s presently there isn’t deep enough to hang clothes in, so our big plan is to install shelves and make it like faux built-ins. We also don’t want to get in over our heads with ripping down any wood paneling, so we’ll just do the typical Greg and Kate method of painting over it.

Now I need to think about things like paint colors, artwork, new bedding, and curtains that actually reach the bottom of the window.

On tap for Day Two: Scrubbing the walls and trim.

    The weeknight-only policy is *brilliant* – what a great idea! I can’t wait to see how the room comes along. That shallow closet is a neat feature, and I think you’ll be able to do a lot with it. I wonder what the previous owners used it for?

    Plan seems relatively simple. Go for it! One thing doesn’t need doing-the floor-looks greaaat!
