I had hoped to share more basement renovation progress but we are at a very laborious point in the process.
It’s literally as boring as watching paint dry.
We are just watching paint dry right now.
We are so close those I can almost taste it. My house is a house of chaos right now and it’s driving me CRAZY (insert opera-Oprah voice).
Every room of the upstairs contains basement paraphernalia.
The amount of construction muck and dust being tracked through the entire house is just making everything dirty. I can’t wait until we’re at the finish line because I am going to call in a crew of housekeepers, window cleaners and carpet cleaners to give this house a deep cleaning (but I’ll probably end up doing myself after our basement reno zapped every penny of the budget).
In the meantime, I’m on to the next project.
My master bedroom.
Can I get a woot, woot!
I’ve sampled enough vanilla in the rest of this house and I need color.
Lots of bold, rich color.
I’ve always adored emerald, navy and gold with some hits of black and white so there’s the color palette.
Lots of expensive pretties in the room but I’m going to attempt to diy most of it including the upholstered bed, the emerald nightstands, the mirror, the dresser and the light fixture. I’ve upholstered a headboard before but no biggie that I haven’t ever built a piece of furniture or re-wired so much as a lamp. My hands are in the air and I’m wavin’ them like I just don’t care.
May take me until next year but oh well.
Just a reminder. Everything in my former room will be for sale soon.
None of it fits in our new bedroom.
