AJ keeps reminding me how good it was that we ripped out the ceiling in the kitchen, it’s let us do some rewiring in the master bedroom. I’m pretty sure he’s just trying to make me feel better about our kitchen ceiling, but regardless, he’s right… it gets us one step closer to moving into the master bedroom. I’m not sure if I’ve done a post about the master before… and maybe because when we moved in it was a disgusting yellow (as in vomit yellow); all the walls, all the trim and the floor was a lovely mix of yellow and green linoleum. We’ve got new drywall thanks to AJ’s friend Rob and Kerry (my father-in-law and AJ’s step dad).
My demolition loving husband ripped out the drop ceiling and vaulted it according to the lines that the attic followed. Our attic got considerably smaller when we decided to do this but it was the best decision ever:
a. it helps us not become pack rats or get submitted to the show Hoarders by having junk filling both our attic AND basement (mostly from free stuff we find on the side of the road with intentions of redo-ing)
b. it makes the room feel so much more light and airy than it did when it was yellow everywhere with dirty floors, walls and a ceiling.
TRUST ME, I know the room still looks like a construction zone, and none of the colors match, etc. April and Kerry stayed for the weekend and we needed to just make it functional… hopefully next time they come it will be more homey and it won’t look like we need to be put on an HGTV show because we have zero style. Here is the view from the doorway. We took off the drywall we placed over the window for the winter (let’s just say that the wind comes right through it) and plan to move the window higher and make it larger so that it’ll go over the area where a bed headboard would be (I plan to make this but am not sure what I want to do yet, although I’m asking for a bed base from West Elm for the Dirty Thirty (November 27)).
