Bedroom: done! And just in time for a weekend visit from my brother and his family. There’s nothing like having overnight guests to get your ass in gear with the house. Although it was stressful toward the end when we were quickly running out of time, now we can sit back, relax and enjoy our lovely new bedroom. I wish these pictures came out better, but we’re hard put to find a sunny day in Philadelphia these days.
The room isn’t actually 100% done, but it’s mostly set. All that’s left is putting shelves in the closet, new curtains, and a rug. Oh, and replacing those ugly doors, but that’s a slightly bigger project.
I dare say that this was the smoothest experience we’ve had with the house. We took our time, did everything about as properly as possible, and didn’t settle for a color we didn’t like, even after painting almost an entire coat. We completely emptied out the room and covered the entire floor with plastic – a much better method than trying to work around the bed and hopping from one piece of plastic to another, spilling big globs of paint in between. Granted, it feels like it’s taken forever, but I think it’s worth it in the end.
And now a well-deserved rest this weekend.
