Our master bedroom is still very much a work in progress, but here are a few things we’ve had fun doing to the space since we moved in back in 2007… The room started out pretty builder basic… …but we’ve been busy injecting more of our personality over the past few years… Here are some […]

We’ve been pluggin’ away, little by little, on the north wall in our master bedroom, and man does it feel good to finally be getting closer to the finish line!

Remember that $40, oh-so-cute, but badly-water-damaged dresser we got at a flea market a while back? If so, then you probably also remember that we initially took the top part of it off, painted it white, sanded back the drawer fronts for a super-distressed effect and added cute little blue-painted knobs and pulls… Welllllllll…I saw […]

Thought I’d share a master bedroom update here today since we’re one step closer to constructing the built-in thing-a-ma-jiggy. Woo hoo! You may remember this inspiration drawing I posted a while back… Well, Kev started by attaching a bunch of ten-foot long 1″x6″ MDF planks (from True Value) to the wall near our bedroom door… […]

The Lettered Cottage Layout & Our Flooring Dilemmas

Carpeted Room

When Kev and I bought this place back in October of 2007, we had to tackle a couple of projects just to get the place livable before we could actually move in. First project- the floors. The carpet in the living room, hallway, reading room, office and guest bedroom was buckling up in several places […]

Life just seems to have gotten busier and busier lately, so there hasn’t been a whole lotta renovatin’ goin’ on in the master bedroom. That being said, this is what looked like just a mere month ago… …and here’s a shot of that same wall, today… (still gotta work on the closet doors and install […]
