The bedroom project -- before

This footage was taken a few weeks ago--October 14, to be exact--and boy, have we come a long way with this project! It's now painted, carpeted, and some of the trim is up, plus we have super-awesome organizer in our amply sized closet. So, since we were getting close to completion, and because the guest bedroom was getting increasingly small and cluttered, we made the move last night! All the bed linens were washed in preparation, and we spent our first night in a new, clean, huge bedroom!

I'll post the "after" photos soon--maybe even some video footage--but I want to wait until I can get some good morning shots of the room. Situated on the second floor of the front of the house, it gets some lovely morning light, especially in the colder months. But for now, enjoy my cinematography.

um. woah. i didn't expect it to look that... barren. i now feel appropriate sympathetic feelings of overwhelmedness. probably too late, as i'm sure it looks drastically different by now.


really. wow.

Yes, that would be a good word for it.

And now . . . like I said, it's not 100% finished, but it looks SOOO much better!

Keep in mind, though, that the room didn't look like the video when we bought it; when you tear down wallpaper, rebuild walls, rewire, take off all the trim, and replace drywall, the room starts looking a lot worse than you ever imagined it would.

I guess it has to get worse before it can get better.

Basically, we just do all this for the drama--the big reveal; the before and after. :)
