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.
Our 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.
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.
The other bathroom has not been renovated at all. It is still in it’s 1970’s glory complete with shallow oval soaker tub and white tiles with brown lillies on them…. yah…so classy! It does have 2 vanities, one on either side of the room with a huge mirror over each. 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.
So that is the upstairs area, next will be the 4th level which houses another family room and our boy’s bedroom…
