Well here it is the somewhat finished master bedroom. I still have a few pictures to hang and a few other things to add (after I find them), but for now it's a place to sleep. The only expense to this redo was a can of walnut stain for the floor, everything else I already had.
Now I know there are no elaborate bed linens and matching drapes, pillows piled high on the bed but I would imagine something as simple as this quilt may have been the lady of the house pride and joy and she would have been very proud to have it on her bed. Just simple white panels and a red and white valance will do. A different lamp and shade, when I find one is in the future.
And Miss Kizzy will be the model of the day. The wardrobe was a curbside find a few years ago. Question how long does it take two women to load a wardrobe in a truck? Less then tree minutes.
The talent show!
The mirrored chest I bought last summer. I had to add the panels on the bottom of the window for privacy since we live on main street.
Now we can enjoy this large bathroom rather than trying to use the smaller original bath in the house.
A good place for a soak after all this work.
Oh, did I mention? Demolition has also started in the kitchen!
What nut starts all this work at one time? That would be me.
There is logic to my madness!
When you open anything in this house, there is what seems to be ton of dirt. Remember this house was heated with coal and wood back in the day, farm workers were in and out and I'm sure in that time you never took off your shoes to go in the house. Well just lots of old dirt! So I thought since this room was so close to the kitchen I should get all the demolition and dirt over with at one time. We found one amazing thing in the kitchen after removing all that old paneling and when we removed the linoleum, plywood and felt paper off the floor another discovery. So come back!
So stay tuned, lots more to come.
