Those of you who have visited us and got a whole house tour have seen the two bedrooms upstairs that we plan to turn into a Master Bedroom/Bathroom Suite. I’m happy to announce that work began on the project last month! First, several walls had to be taken out, including all the old lath and plaster they were made of. This is the closest I have to ‘before’ pictures – my husband is very tidy, and had already cleared away most of the junk by the time I got upstairs with the camera.
This space will become MB closet and bathroom, as well as a small, half-bath off the hallway. It will be so nice to have a bathroom upstairs finally!!!
I can hardly wait till I get to wake up in this room, which gets the morning sun, and will have a view of my spring bulb garden.
I have begun to refer to my husband as the King of Craig’s list. He has been watching our local Craig’s lists for several months, collecting materials, and so far we have gotten everything but the lumber and nails second hand at excellent prices, including tile, a double granite sink (pictured here), glass for the shower stall, large mirrors, and (drumroll please…) – a jacuzzi tub, with matching toilet and sink!
Can you see the custom shower stall and tub in this corner? I can…hardly wait till it’s done and I can take a nice, long soak! 🙂
If anyone has some favorite online sources for design inspiration, I would love to see some links. The tub is gray, our floor tile will probably be black, so I’m thinking of going with mostly neutrals, with a splash of color, like an apple green throughout the bedroom and bathroom…kind of like the color combos in this comforter set.
I will keep you updated with progress reports!
