Master Bedroom Remodel~ Before and After

Master Bedroom Remodel... Before and After

We bought our 1915/1950 farmhouse last fall from a sweet elderly couple who last remodeled in the 70s.
As you can see, it came with striped shag carpets, dark paneling,
acoustical ceiling tiles and interesting (ahem) wallpaper.

Here are the before and after shots of the first room we have pretty much "completed"(although I think we many never be completely finished) with new drywall, carpet, trim and doors.

Closet... seems to have been added to the room as an after thought, making furniture placement pretty awkward. Closet doors were very heavy sheets of plywood.

  We replaced the plywood with wooded bi-fold doors (which still need to be stained).

This is the awkward space left next to the closet, complete with really crooked walls.

  After drywall and window treatment (Ikea curtains). Perfect spot for our tv.

Front window and heater.

  New curtains hide the heater and can be moved aside in the winter. We hardly used this heater last winter, our wood stove put off plenty of heat and we prefer the bedroom on the colder side to sleep.

 And after... painting is from art school, a long time ago. Quilt is from the Company Store.

Bedroom door before.

  And after... need to find a smaller (thinner?) nightstand so the door can open fully.
New glass doors knobs throughout the downstairs was my bling anniversary gift from Paul.

We LOVE our bedroom. Full of light and just the right size.
