Master Bedroom

I’ve told you twice now that I’ve been sleeping in an unfinished room.

It looked like this for a long time.

Then we finally got around to the sanding. If I ever leave or even slightly tick off MK, he’s got photos of me at my most doofus looking – the day I had to sand the room. Eye gear, beanie since it kept getting in my hair. Long shirt and pants. And it still got everywhere. Drywall spackle dust SUCKS.

Then we primed it and it looked bad. So there was some respackling and resanding. Then priming again. Then this week, FINALLY, MK, who lost a bet and got forced to do it instead of me, put up the knockdown. The walls were textured and we had to make our new wall match. Yikes. So glad it wasn’t me. And thankfully he did incredibley, considering how tricky of a project it was.

Then I painted and WOAH! For the first time probably since we moved in, the bedroom was all the same color. The walls and trim got a touch up. The  closets are done. We have curtains and vases and wall art and only need a TV for the room the be complete. Amazing!

New Walls!

This is right before we hung the painting. We’ll put a black dresser in front and mount a tv, maybe from the ceiling, so it hangs in front. It’s just an ikea print, but it really opens the room up.

Ta Da!

  1. I’ve been waiting for you to tell me you liked my stripes!?!?! You don’t, huh? But yes, this isn’t perfect. My argument with MK is that neither is any other part of the house, so we didn’t want to be too perfect, or it wouldn’t blend in! 😉 But we did it.

  2. Utah’s boring 24/7/365

    but I wish I could see the progress on the house firsthand. it looks like you guys are doing a great job!

  3. Um, first, we’ve been working on the house since we got here. Second, it’s NOT boring! It’s been amazing, or else we’d be long gone. Trust me. CH, can’t wait until you can visit again. You and Momm won’t even recognize the place (mostly because you couldn’t see it when it was covered in snow) 🙂

  4. I’ve been reading your blog forever, and I think this is the first time I’ve been offended by anything. Utah is NOT boring! There is more to do outdoors here year-round than almost anywhere else, if you’re looking for any kind of variety. The weather is awesome, the scenery is breathtaking, the traffic is light, the snow is heavy and the equipment rentals are cheap. I don’t really see how CT OR SD can beat it.


  5. CT sure can’t beat it.

    but the problem I’m having here in SD is that I have TOO MUCH to do. if I did a quarter of everything I wanted to do here, I still wouldn’t have enough time.

  6. It actually feels like that here sometimes, for such a little town it’s surprising. I think the reality is that the events aren’t publicized so well and I don’t hear about them until after they’ve happened.
