The Master Bedroom. A storage fantasy coming true!

 Ripping the old trim off.

Removing all of the plaster from the

ceiling and the walls.

Insulating the perimeter of the room.

An adjacent bedroom's closet's final hours before sacrificing its space

to the master bedroom.

Ripping through the closet.


The view into the new master bedroom

from another bedroom.

So long knob-and-tube wiring.

Framing and insulating new walls.

Drywalling is always easier

with extra hands from friends.

Priming the walls and ceiling with enviro-friendlySherwin-Williams primer that has zero VOC and anti-microbial properties.

It took us the better part of a Sunday to install the wide-plank pine flooring.

We gave the floor an extra touch of farmhouse-style with cut nails. It takes some time and muscle, but we love the look.

Our 100-year-old house has settled, so the floors a bit wavy. It takes some carpentry prepwork to make sure the cabinets start their lifetime level.

The first cabinet takes extra care.

Leveling and adjusting each cabinet. The Plaza Toasted Almond cabinets from Thomasville Cabinetry are perfect for his and her custom wardrobe storage.

The new hardware provides a traditional touch to the bedroom. And they are easy to use, too.

Painting the room with No VOC paint from Sherwin-Williams.

We were lucky to find the original doors

for the house in the attic.
