The room started out as a mess, just like every other room in the house. There were holes in the walls, an old outside entrance with a rotted door and rotted frame, blue 9X9 tiles on the floor and a closet full of mold and rotted wallpaper. And this was just the beginning.
This is the very beginning. A room full of trash, covering all of the imperfections. You can see the corner window on the right, covered by some curtains.
After we cleaned it up, original door on the right.
Gutting the closet, etc.
After taking out the door, framing the wall back in, adding insulation and then drywalling.
We ripped up all the tiles and then found the same layer of glue and black tar paper I've mentioned previously on the blog. It was a huge, tedious job to say the least.
|Couldn't resist another staircase shot of the spindles, plus you can see the closet in the bottom right. You can see I still have some staining to do!|
|We found this solid cherry dresser at Salvation Army, the perfect match to a cherry colored staircase. Handmade wooden city blocks and whale courtesy of my awesomely talented sister, who runs Little Adventure Toys.|
Lots more before and after shots to come! And a birthday post for my sweet boy turning 1.
