Before and After: Master Bathroom

This is a really fun one. This bathroom was so awful. We will start with the realtor walk through pictures and then show pictures of present. We just completely gutted and updated the bathroom this year. In the middle are pictures where we put down some vinyl and updated it a little and that is the way it stayed until this year, 2015, with all new plumbing, flooring, closet, etc.

Yes, there were swinging bar doors to the toilet….

Here are a few pics of what I tried to do to make it look better.

 

Then, my brother ripped out the toilet, flooring, lighting,  bathtub, etc. and put it all back together again. We lowered the ceiling a couple feet so you didn’t feel like you walked into a cracker box every time you passed over the threshhold. We also added a fan, new beautiful ceramic flooring in a chevron pattern. We also gutted the closet and put a new door in and re-engineered the shelves.

Before and After: Master Bedroom

Continuing on today…it is rainy and I thought I might as well finish out the before and after posts.  Here is the master bedroom. It starts with the realtor walk through, then proceeds on to what it looked liked for a couple years before we painted. Finally about 2 years ago we got rid of the horrific blue carpet and I tried quite valiantly to remove the black paper that was stuck to the hardwoods. I finally gave up and had Lowes install new carpet.

REALTOR WALK THROUGH- I guess these are the only 2 pictures I took.

PAINTING

I couldn’t decide on the color, so I tried several before settling for Benjamin Moore’s Hemlock.

I then put up some CURTAINS, finally!

Before and After: Study

Here are a few before and after of the study. Here is the story of how we stained the floors.  The first pictures are of the realtor walk through almost 10 years ago. Then there are pictures after I painted beige and left it like that for a while. It was kind of the dumping grounds of the house. Every odd piece of furniture and stack of tile got stored there, then we refinished the floors and added a bathroom in late 2012, early 2013. The last pictures are of the room currently.
