New Home Tour, Part 2 - Upstairs (iPhone Photos)

Dwellers! Enjoy your 4th of July weekend?

We headed out to the Florida.... WE WERE READY TO HIT THE BEACH! And celebrate my 29th.


But.... we ended up getting a half day of sun, getting rained out the second day and going to see a movie, then (thankfully) getting one more enjoyable day... Then, eventually the weather forecast looked so bad Seth really thought we should head back home early to get some work done. Better to get some work done in the rain at home, than sit inside at the beach, right? Well, we repainted the bedroom. You're about to see the before and I'm sure we'll share the in-progress fairly soon.

Ready for the 2nd floor tour?

Master bedroom. You remember the stairs from this post? They lead, well, upstairs. :) You turn to the left and see a linen closet, right beside the master.

Now, standing in the doorway of the master bedroom (I told you these were photos on my phone, sorry!).... 

This is a better image of the paint color.

The door in the top-right of the photo below leads to the hallway...

Real-life side note: I just lost about an hour's worth of bloggin'. Instead of punching the internet, I'm going to zoom through this next part.

Upstairs porch: It's big. Love it! And will take awhile to furnish... only one photo on my phone though, so here's  a corner. :)

Master bathroom:
Likes: his-and-her sinks, the lovely custom feet on the cabinets, extra closet space, etc.
Need to: repaint, more up-to-date color palette, repair the shower door, repair the tub jets, and a few more things.


Laundry room: Just a few steps down the hall.
Pro's: it's on the second floor (with all the bedrooms)! And it's loads better than our tiny laundry area inside the kitchen of our condo.
Con's: No appliances (boo, our checking account will surely hate us for that)


Hurts-my-eyes Bedroom / Eventually our  office. Bad color, bu the natural light is nice enough (even though I think the window placement is kind of weird). Moving on...

The "other room".  I think it's the south-facing windows... but for whatever reason, I really love this space. I hope when our family grows (we hope to adopt fairly soon) we'll use this for a nursery!  PLUS, I ASK YOU THIS: What's not to love about the lovely butterflies all over the dang place? I mean, you want those in every room, right? :-/  Hahem, noooooo.... those need to go.



The other baths are nice enough, This sink (below) is right beside the purple room, then there's an adjoining shower/toilet area, that takes you to an identical sink area (right by the office/annoying-ly green room). We love the size of them.... and the closet size. They need a little work, for sure. Like removing those wonderfully stubborn caterpillar decals, for example... but that will happen in due time!

And that concludes the tour! We love this house, but/and we have a long list of to-do's. I sometimes wish I was a professional DIY blogger so these things could get done more rapidly... but our pace is a real-life pace that just has to work amidst real-life obligations and activities.

Any advice? Or experiences moving into your home, conquering or prioritizing projects? 

Hugs!

  2. I can't wait to see the neutral colors you choose for the walls. I know they will be neutral. Too bad that linen closet door inst a 2 panel! I love 2 panel doors. They are less busy.
