Our New Room: Before, During and After

Here's a walk through of our new room in our new home. 
(Photos of the rest of the house coming soon)

From the hallway into our bedroom:


BEDROOM

BEFORE

The door on the left heads to the bathroom

That window overlooks the balcony


DURING PHASE I

(Trey found a book he was looking for)

The window and balcony door
Check out the makeshift curtains!
(Trey searching for more books)

Balcony and wall next to closets
(the search continues...)

Door to hall (left) and door to bathroom (right)



DURING PHASE II

Most of our things are put away and real curtains are up in front of the balcony.


The new desk beneath the window.
The desk is very large, though the picture doesn't show it.


The bedroom is still a work in progress. We are putting things away and setting everything up. We'll definitely post more pictures when all is finished and clean and lovely. 


DRESSING ROOM AND BATHROOM

BEFORE


Yep, that's the shower on the wall to the right of the toilet. No separation, no lip to keep the water out, no curtain. It felt like a locker room.



AFTER


We ran a clothesline from the window to the opposite wall to divide the space and added some bathmats. We're basically professional home renovators now.



Stay tuned for more fun house stuff. We should be getting furniture for the living room soon!

  1. I love keeping up with you guys!!! Last week I had a hair dryer malfunction while getting ready for work and I was so sad because I couldn't call you and ask you to bring me one to use at work. :( Looks like y'all are doing so great. Sending my love and prayers from Tyler!

  2. The real question here is this: has anyone yet taken fullest advantage of the shower/toilet situation by using both at the same time? That seems like the natural course of things, does it not?

    1. Nope. The water pressure isn't strong enough for the shower water to reach the toilet. Too bad, huh? Two birds, one stone.

  3. Well that bathroom renovation is truly a gem. You sure know how to make an interior designer proud. :)

  4. I am curious like Faris - Are the drain and the floor the same level?
    Can't wait or photos!

    1. The drain is slightly lower than the floor. But only slightly. The water pools and nearly reaches the toilet by the end of a shower.
