House Tour With Master Bedroom and Kids Room
contributed by Jacqui @ A Novel Mum
I can hardly believe we’ve only been in this house two weeks. It’s crazy how much has changed already. Oh and when I said that my list of troubles for the week had ended I spoke too soon. Right after I posted that my car battery went completely dead and had to be booked in for service. But things have a way of working out and yesterday we received news from our lawyer that our bank had made an error and where should they send the cheque! Bank error… in your favor, why that only happens in Monopoly.
I think that today may be the first day in three weeks that we don’t have a contractor here. Our beloved cats were returned to us from their hiatus at my parents. We had a terrific weekend with friends and family and actually had people over. My best friend is coming down soon. Things are looking up.
On with the tour you say…
To save you a few clicks I’ll post the before of the master bedroom for you.
This was also the room that we left off the painters list so that we could do the board and batten technique I kept seeing around the web. Later we tried to add the painting back on their agenda but NO luck. “We’re busy” they said, snickering as they left. So although we did finish the main bedroom before we moved in, we were still painting the closet and the ensuite last week. Thank goodness it’s all done and hopefully I can burn my painting supplies.
Here is the master bedroom now.
I think it’s my favorite room.
A surprise hit.
Off to the right is our walk UP closet.
I didn’t think it would be a big deal but can I just say,
I LOVE IT.
And yes, that’s my wedding dress hanging there because,
I unpacked it along with the plethora of other dresses I don’t wear and it just looked so gorgeous
hanging there. I decided to leave it.
It was one of the best days of my life and I want to see it.
And that picture on the right,
it’s also one of my favorite things.
It’s a custom print of the night stars and sky over the place where Daryl proposed.
Underneath are the dates and the words
“Yes, yes, a thousand times yes”.
I’m so glad it’s in my room now. Who knew seeing it every morning would make me so
Through that glass door is a private balcony. My plan is to create a secret little garden.
But first my plan is to create a not-so-secret garden out of the rest of our
My Dad made the rotating shelves/mirror on the right.
Still loving it.
Best. Dad. Ever.
The hall. You’ve seen the view looking down from here before.
The foyer/hall and access to both the laundry room and another private balcony soon to become the girl’s secret garden.
I still can’t find the stuff to fill this shelving unit.
Where do these things go when you move?
Oh and I have a story about this glass door to the laundry room.
I sent in a request to a local vinyl decal maker to reproduce something I’d seen from a place in the states.
I want a sign that says Laundry Room with a cute little bird on it.
I didn’t order because I didn’t want the hassle of bringing it through customs and such.
Anyhow, I asked if she could do it, she said, sure but why not just order from where you saw it.
Hmm. I didn’t write back but um…
if someone contacts your business to do work, wouldn’t you just offer to do it unless you really didn’t want the job.
So, OK, local vinyl person, I WILL use that other company now and for any future purchases.
And last but not least…
the girl’s room.
I still haven’t put in the optic fiber ceiling but I did crawl up there to look yesterday.
Hopefully this weekend will see the ceiling installed and the finishing touches on this room.
Yes, that’s a tiger.
Veronica has slept the majority of nights on her old mattress underneath the house, but has slept up top as well. I think she loves the privacy of the top bunk.
It’s all working out swimmingly.
