The Second Story - Progress

Pin It

It's amazing. The contrast in the weather these past several days. This time last week, we were dealing with several inches of snow. Today, we have 60 degree warmth and all our windows are open. And my wonderful husband is taking full advantage. Working away on our second story.  Even as I type this... I can hear pounding and demolition right above my head.

We spent an evening last week, talking about each room and mentally drawing up plans of what will become our own private oasis. The Master Suite. Gives me goose bumps just thinking about it.

We will also be able to move our son's room upstairs as well. Giving him 1/3rd of the second story. I think I'm just as excited for his room as I am for my own.

As I dream away, narrow down my pins on pinterest and google search the perfect wall colors and flooring, the demolition continues. I think I have the best part of the project. 

As the preparations begin, I thought I would share some of my ideas for each area. And, since he is tearing out all the lath and plaster in our bed room today, I'll share some of the pins I saved for that space. I learned so many things from other bloggers, thanks to pinterest. I would've saved us so much headache and grief on the first floor if only I could've had access to all this great information.  Tips, Tricks, Do's and Don'ts.

One thing I'm MOST excited about in our bedroom is, NO MORE DRESSERS. We are still using the dressers that came with my baby crib when I was born. lol. I have to say, furniatre was made REALLY WELL back in the 80s... These dressers have been troopers. But, it's time to retire them (Or turn them into something else??? We'll see...) The only thing that will be in our bedroom is our bed, a bench at the end, obviously photos hanging on the wall, and possibly a couple lamps. No more moving odd sized dressers from wall to wall, trying to find the right layout. More on where our clothes will go later.


I know it's hard to picture, when it's in this stage, so, here are a couple photos of what I'm imagining thus far. Obviously, we will make it out own, mix and matching things we both like. :)

I am in LOVE with this blue wall color. Not to mention the blue AND the white board and baton along the bottom. No need for a dresser, but, I'll take the big mirror in the corner too! Oh, and might as well throw in that awesome blue dress on the door too.
I love the bed side lamps in our current bed room, but, with windows being on either side of our bed in our new room, (yeah!!!) I love this idea of mounting a lamp to the wall. This will do nicely.

So, there is a couple of sneak peeks of what I'm thinking. I just can't wait.
