We plan to add an ensuite bathroom. The area we chose shares the wall with the main bathroom, so it will make plumbing the bathroom relatively easy and fairly inexpensive! All we need to do is add a wall to close in the space, install a pocket door and voila, we have a private space to transform into our own private bathroom! I know how I want my new bathroom to look and I can't wait till we tackle that project! But, it will all tie in together with finishing the renovations on our bedroom, so for now I wait.
I will show you my bedroom as it is today. I wish I had before pictures! My only reason for showing them is to remind you of the power in a paint can! I think we can forget how much paint can transform a room...it is fairly cheap and easy! I painted the ceilings a pretty blue as our house is on a treed lot and my bedroom is on the shady side. The walls are a pretty green...but you can't really tell from the photos, but it does look pretty with the blue. I consider it a quick fix as I had used the wall colour in my last house and it didn't involve much thought! I just needed to remove the blech beige walls that was a favourite of the previous owner. Painting the old mahogany closet doors, trim and windows to white really lightened and brightened the room.
I change my bedding with the seasons...that is my weakness...beautiful bedding! However, I haven't indulged for quite a while! I do love April Cornell linens...which is on my bed right now! Many of her prints are timeless...I have had this duvet cover for almost 10 years!!! Though, I haven't used it in a very long time and when I do, it is only seasonally!
The cupboard was another yard sale find from years ago!
My husband's grandmother tatted this for me before she passed away. I cherish this!
This photo better shows the angles of the wall.
I love my vintage wicker chair & dresser!
These are more vintage pictures I bought at a yard sale. They are all paintings of Bermuda.
The window seat that we plan to make deeper. The seat has storage and is wonderful for hiding christmas gifts!
We plan to build book cases in under the eaves! For now, the tv and ella's barbie house own this corner!
This is the area that will be turned into our bathroom. It doesn't look large in this picture, but it will hold a toilet, sink & shower!
A small dresser I plan to paint. But for now, it holds my books which will someday be on the bookshelves that need built!
I love the old Limoge jug. The vase normally holds flowers, but ella takes them everytime!
I love this old vintage picture!
My old suitcases that hold more of my books!
Some of my favourite jewellery hanging from my dresser mirror!
