Finished Master Bathroom.

Allow me to finally share with you a long-overdue post: the FINISHED BATHROOM! We have had this wrapped up for a while now but I just never seem to find the time to write a blog post.  Sorry for the delay, but better late than never? To remind you what the old bathroom was like:...
Tiling the Master Bathroom

Tiling the Master Bathroom

We have more progress to share with our renovations! David and I opted to install heated floors in the master bathroom because the room only has one air vent for the high velocity heating, and also… if we’re only going to have one bathroom for the rest of our lives, might as well make it...

Creating a Master Bathroom

More renovation updates!!  Now I get to share how the master bathroom is coming together.   Just to remind you, below are the plans the architect drew up, and here is a link to my personal inspiration for what I want it to look like. So below is a picture taken from when you first enter...

Making New Rooms Upstairs

More renovation progress to share!!   Here’s what the inside of the former doorway to the hallway looks like plastic-ed over. And as you can see from the pic below, we have new support beams for the new walls. Now HERE is where it gets super exciting: Above is a photograph taken from the master bathroom-to-be...
Inspiration for the Master Bathroom

Inspiration for the Master Bathroom

Hi folks!  Before I share how things have been progressing with our major upstairs renovation, I thought I’d show you my “dream” of how I want it to end up looking.  I’m lucky to have a husband who supports my insane Houzz/ Pinterest/ magazine flipping for inspiration and here are some of the “winners” we...
Walk-In Closet Accompli!

Walk-In Closet Accompli!

This is Part 2 of the Walk-In Closet story.  So as I mentioned in my last post, first David and I painted the 4 walls and ceiling a calming blue, which I love.   Then we hung a great mirror on sale (only $29!) from Kirkland.   Next our contractor built some great shelves for us....
Walk-In Closet

Walk-In Closet

Okay, time to share some cool updates on the renovation project! The first step of the project is demo-ing an old random fireplace that apparently exists behind the wall in the hallway to make room for a new, big walk-in closet for our bedroom.  This fireplace was covered over in drywall and its chimney stopped...

And So It Begins…

Well, it looks like our 5-year-down-the-road-plans were meant to be 5-month-down-the-road-plans.  Glad we got the architect to draw them up last fall because since then, we’ve had no less than 3 burst pipes in the bathroom upstairs that have leaked into the kitchen.  We keep replacing the old, disintegrating copper pipes with PEX parts but...
Designing The Upstairs

Designing The Upstairs

Big changes will be happening in our neck of the woods!! Last fall we hired one of Charlottesville’s most renowned architects, Russell Skinner (from Abbott Skinner), to come take a look at our upstairs and help us come up with a long-term plan. The issues with the status quo upstairs were many.  We hadn’t touched the...
Master Bedroom = Painted!

Master Bedroom = Painted!

It’s days like these that I realize how blessed I am. Two of my aunties came over and spent the night.  In just over 24 hours, with the help of my mom who was here most of that time, they organized our study (aka “clutter room”), organized/ cleaned our dining room, took off the wallpaper...

Inspirational Bedrooms

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what color to paint our master bedroom.   At first I thought a relaxing, calming blue (that mimicked the calm Blue Ridge Mountains outside the window) would be perfect.  David and I picked up a sample of Benjamin Moore’s Wickham Gray and painted a splotch on the walls....
Priming the Master Bedroom

Priming the Master Bedroom

Our sweet friend Lizzie came to visit us for a weekend, and you won’t believe what she did when she arrived! Not only did she bring me a delicious Ritter Sport chocolate bar from Germany, but she primed our ENTIRE master bedroom. The walls soaked up a whole gallon of Mythic Paint primer (meaning I...
