Master Bedroom Reno

While Alexis was gone on a little trip I had to keep busy so I didn’t miss her too much. I also wanted to surprise her with getting a few projects done around the house. So I decided to do a master bedroom reno and paint it.

It’s hard to tell which room is the master since none of them have bathrooms or walk-in closets, but this room does have 2 closets and is the one the previous owners used as theirs so I took it as mine. Besides all the other rooms were already claimed by the kids! It’s upstairs and the ceiling is only 6′ tall up there and there’s no heat. For the first family who lived there they used wood stoves and the heat rose up the chimney and heated the upstairs. When central heat was added, vents were only put in downstairs. That’s fine, we don’t go upstairs too much during the day anyway and don’t mind sleeping cold.

First step is to start priming.

It took a couple more months to find a comforter I liked, a Moroccan shag rug, and make some valances out of a white and gray sheet with burlap ties. Then I updated the door handles too. I still need some decorations but I’m loving it!
