My husband and I agreed that with the front entry renovation complete, we would take a break from construction over the holidays. He has been working so hard, and a break was well deserved. Plus, drywall dust and Christmas tress wouldn’t mix well. But by Christmas Day, he was already itching to get started!!! So much for not renovating until January. =) Fine by me! The faster we get this house done, the happier I’ll be. So he started on tasks in the hallway that didn’t create too much dirt and dust – pulling off trim and door frames and removing the wood paneling. On December 28th, I packed away all of the Christmas decorations and the real construction work began. The hallway is a fairly simple project – it’s long and narrow so we don’t want to overwhelm the space with wallpaper or pattern. The walls will be a very light gray (Passive by Sherwin Williams), and we’ll continue our crown and baseboard from the front entry. New doors, new trim and our espresso coloured engineered maple floor.
With the hallway on it’s way to completion, we’ve been talking about the next step – our Master Bedroom. I’ve been perusing House and Home online, other design blogs, and Pinterest for photos. Here are some master bedroom designs we’ll be using as inspiration.
Can’t wait to be lounging in our Master Suite! Once complete, I’ll be sure to post before and after pictures. Happy Sunday!
