Remember the house renos I talked about forever ago? Well Hubs and I finally got started on that. The dull builders beige wall colour in the walk-in closet has been replaced with clean white....the room suddenly seemed 5 times bigger. The bedroom is now Marble White and the new Maple Rio hardwood floor looks AMAZING...good-bye stuffy, heat-trapping, dull, crappy carpet!! I would have preferred all the carpet to be gone in the entire house, but I consider this to be a little victory and one day it will be gone!
We did the painting ourselves, which wasn't nearly as bad as painting over plaster walls and 15 layers of wallpaper in our old house (no joke!) We hired a flooring company to install the hardwood and they did a great job, finished it in 1.5 days. So worth it!
So here's the before, which looks absolutely hideous now:
picked out these Martha Stewart closet organizers from Home Depot for
my walk-in....which will look a bit like this:
Say what you want about Martha, but this closet will be custom.
I will post more photos once the rest of the bedroom is finished, we have some items on order right now. But already the bedroom feels like a whole new room!
Next up, the basement.
