Moving Upstairs…|level Three


October 19, 2014 by Terry

Hello!  Sorry it has been a bit since the last post … life seems to have taken the “busy” turn again lately.  It seems like we go through spurts where things settle down and then all of a sudden life takes off again at 100 miles an hour.  This seems to be one of those times for me.

Lets continue on our little tour upstairs to the next level which we’ll call level 3.  The upstairs has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.  The rooms are an okay size, not gigantic but not tiny either.  (I will apologize ahead of time for the poor quality pics…I’m working on getting a better camera)

This is our master bedroom.  I don’t have it overly decorated right now as we have the house listed.  I put away as much as I could to keep it spacious feeling and not cluttered.

DSCN3184Our room is a nice size, it is large enough to house a king size bed.  We downsized a few years ago to a queen size as too many kids would wind up coming in throughout the night claiming they couldn’t sleep.  Downsizing made it uncomfortable and squishy for them and they quit coming :0)

This is the view from the bed side of the room looking towards our ensuite.  This home was built in 1978 and I guess they didn’t mind seeing the sink from their bed… lol!  We replaced the vanity and mirror, and since this pic was taken there is white marble with a light grey veining as a backsplash.

DSCN3186DSCN3189To the right of the vanity is a toilet area with a water closet (shower).  The shower also has the same white/grey marble and is accented with a glass tile border around the top.

DSCN3206DSCN3210DSCN3211Doing this post makes me realize just how white and grey our home is!  It really doesn’t look like that much until you single it out into pictures!

Next we will take a peek at one of the Girl’s bedrooms… they aren’t showroom decorated or magazine worthy but it is where she lives.  This is my middle child’s room.  She is incredibly creative and has a very strong mind of her own.  I let her decide within reason what she likes to have in her room.  In this picture you will notice that I removed the closet doors and have created a sweet cozy little nook for her bed.  We hung up curtains around it and placed all her books and nick nacks up there more as a display space.  The rest of the room houses all her paints, canvases, drawing easel, clay etc…..

The closet doors can be put back on any time and are just in storage.

It is also finished off with some really ugly and cheap lino… definitely needs new flooring!

It is a very large bathroom and will be pretty once renovated.  I do have a beautiful double vanity like the one in our ensuite to put in there as well as a new tub in the garage just waiting to be put in but time has not allowed for this reno to start yet.  Maybe we will just leave it all for the future owner so they can make it their own.

IMG_5661It is sitting just outside the bathroom right now at the top of the stairs in a little nook… that was used as a reading nook at one time…

So that is the upstairs area, next will be the 4th level which houses another family room and our boy’s bedroom…

Take care!

  1. Great minds think alike-I have the exact same vanity that you have in your master in our main bath! Mine is going to be painted – it hasn’t held up well… And I kind of dig your other bathroom, I’d just paint the tile. Pretty bedrooms too!


    • Thank you! It’s too bad that you have to paint yours…they aren’t cheap at all :0( Unfortunately, the main bath looks better in pictures than in real life or I’d just work with it.
      Have a great day! :0)


  2. I know! And I don’t even have 5 kids using it. Lol. But it will make for a good post(I hope!). Anyway your house is beautiful, it should sell fast!!

Thank you so much Larissa @prodigalpieces for tagging me in today's #trashure fun!  I don't know that this French chair was trash to begin with but it certainly did make its way into being a treasure indeed! This is my most recent makeover!💕#makeover #beautiful #statementpiece #upholstery #frenchchair There are 2 sides to everything and in this makeover too!  Velvety glam on the front and a modern statement in peacock feathers hugging the back!  Soooo pretty! 💕💕#thecuratorscollection #obsessed #sofine #soglam #feathers #velvet #statementpiece #beautiful #makeover #upholstery I am obsessed!! These (there are 2!) might just be the most luxurious chairs I have ever re upholstered! Gorgeous metallics mixed with luxurious fine velvets!  Wait till you see the backside of these chairs!  They will be delivered to their home tomorrow morning!  Can't wait!! #luxury #glamglow #makeover #upholstered #stunning #thecuratorscollection #soglam #sofine #obsessed Okay... here's a peek at the "during" of these two sweet chairs. They were  my client's Nana's chairs and it is my hope that Nana would be pleased with this makeover. #nanaschair #thecuratorscollection #makeover #upholstered #velvet #newlook #soglam #metallic So this is what has been keeping me busy these days... actually there are 2 of them! Without giving away what they look like now I thought I would share what the choices for fabric were first. My client chose the print for the backside and the velvet for the front side with exquisite soft pink velvet for the welting and the arms. I also gave the orange looking wood a glamorous look with some warm silver metallic paint. I hope to share with you soon! I don't want to share the reveal before the owner has had a chance to see them :). #thecuratorscollection #upholstered #makeover #velvet #soglam #mynanas Soooooo this is my current situation.... I'm on sewing machine number three in 2 days and a deadline nearing the end in 4 days! 😬 I SWEAR ITS NOT ME! Lol... hubby is trying to fix mine after bringing me home one from one of his co-worker's wife's ... how sweet is he? 💕huge shout out of gratitude to Mrs. Schafer for helping me in a pinch! 😘🌷#stressfulday #sewing #upholstery #deadlines #sweetpeople #thankyou #gratitude
