Hurray! It's done!

Sunday, March 2, 2014

I love people who can do things with their hands... like, build things, paint a picture, knit a sweater, fix a car... install an incredibly complicated vanity!


We finally got the bathroom put together last weekend.  It still needs a few finishing touches, but it is 100% usable and my house is a little more normal again.  Now that it's done, it feels so good! Our bathroom before was old, dingy, and poorly maintained.  It feels fresh and new now.


A couple weeks ago, I tackled our bedroom.  Everything upstairs had been painted boring-beige when we moved in. Our room is fairly small, just enough space for our bed, a dresser, and hope chest... pretty standard old-house size.


I'll take better photos (when I have a chance), but here is the headboard we made out of reclaimed wood.  I put a small painting that my grandma did over the bed... the frame was perfectly chipped and peeling!  We put linen-look sheers on either side of the bed to soften it up a bit and installed a chandelier.  I am really, really, really happy with how these two rooms have turned out.  It feels good to be surrounded by beautiful things.


I think we will take a break from home-reno's for a bit.  We still have a few things I want to do, like finish the flooring on the main floor, and paint the weird wood panelling we have in the entryway and hallway... but for now, I am reno'ed out!
