I keep saying that I am going to update our Master Reno link, and it is high on my list of things to do since it basically looks nothing like the link anymore. But with the closet still in progress it just seems like a big job. I would say that 90% of the bedroom is finished, but if you know me at all by now you know I am a 110% kinda gal. And little bits and bobs are still coming together, like our seating area which now has the map hung I picked up for $10 at auction a month or two back.
The sofa was a thrift store find (pre bed-bug fearing days!). I almost always walk right through any and all thrift store upholstery but this one was such a cute size. I am still planning on re-upholstering it completely in the future in a light grey, but for the time being a cheap custom made slipcover does a great job of keeping the hideous green brocade under wraps.
Even though the sofa has 2 cushions I knew that in the future I would only want 1 long cushion so I asked the seamstress to make 1 cover for both cushions. This way I can still use it after re-upholstering. It also made the cover cheaper since it was less work involving zippers, etc. for the seamstress.
It is seldomly looked at even by me. Until it is all done I try and not even think about the amount of cleaning of work left on that project. It was a gross underestimation of work by both of us, but we can already appreciate the amount of space we have gained by extending into the attic. Our old closet basically ended right behind the yellow work light.
Sean has reinforced floor joyces, insulated everything and has all the electrical done and we have decided to call in professional to mud and tape it all nicely. We will be doing bead board ceiling in here as well.
overall it had added about 100 square feet, and while the roof is sloped there is a TON of room. Once you take into account that the hanging rods and organizers will come out at least 1.5 feet from the walls neither of us will be bumping our heads, which is always good news.
As you can see there are a few awkward challenges as far as corners and exhaust vents so we are considering investing in professional help and calling California Closets in to give us some guidance. We are still so excited about working on the kitchen that we can’t quite justify the expense just yet though…
Maybe if I regain my voice this weekend I will take you on a guided video tour of the chaos that is our office/current closet. Assuming all the laundry magically gets done.
