So we’ve had a change of plan at Avalon House. We were well on our way planning our hallway Reno until we realised that actually, when we have our extension in the future, the work on the hallway might be compromised, and there really is no point in spending money on new flooring, paint, woodwork, doors and everything else that goes into home renovations, when there’s a risk it could all be damaged/ruined with building work. So onwards to our new plan - the second bedroom!
This room is so sad and tired (as you can see! 😳🙈) and it’s time to make a queen out of this old girl. Time to start doing some Pinterest research!! #renovation#bedroomrenovation#bedroombefore#diy#homerenovation
Turned the back bedroom into a walk-in closet for me, and a small bedroom/loft for them.
Last year in class, we learned about tiny houses, and I was inspired by the lofts that many tiny houses have. So we took half of the back bedroom and converted it into a 7' high walk-in closet that connects to my side of the house, and turned the space above it into a loft. The remaining space in the room became closets and a small area for a day bed. It didn't turn out exactly as planned (the loft is hard to get into because of the ladder design), but it turned out great, regardless.
Such a mess 🤦🏽♀️😂 First pic is the standard ‘right move’ photo, the following pics are of what the bedroom looks like now! We are waiting on my brother to return from holiday to put in some plug sockets for us as this room has 2 and they’re in the most annoying places! Still to do- Opening the fireplace back up, steaming/ sanding the Artex off the ceiling and top of the walls and ripping up the horrid laminate flooring! I have so many great ideas for this bedroom so watch this space 😍😍
Evening ✨ if you have seen my stories you will have seen that the whole house doesn’t look like this room. I am currently battling a blow up bed 🙈. So I thought I would share this corner of the bedroom. The cushions are from @homesense_ukie the bed is from @dreams_beds unbelievably I managed to get these curtains in a local shop sale. For £42!!! I am over the moon with them they look so luxurious. My beautiful ivory effect magnifying glass (purely for show) is from @hunterandco.store and the cool looking coral was from @kellyhoppenhome sale! As is the vase with the flowers ☺️ #bedroomdetails#luxurybedroom#luxurydetails#homesense#tkmaxx#luxuryinteriordesign#bedroomrenovation#bedroominterior#romowallpaper#wayfairuk
• m o o d b o a r d • it’s evolved a bit from the post in March. We’ve gone for Matt black wall lights/sockets and switches. And re-painting the dressing table from a dusky pink, which is gorgeous but looking tired, plus it’s nice to have a change. I thinks it’s going to go F&B arsenic 💚! It will work well with the beautiful wallpaper and white walls and painted floor boards. We’re now just waiting for the plasterer to come! Then all systems go! #moodboard#bedroomdecor#bedroomideas#holdenwallpaper#farrowandballarsenic#renovation#bedroomrenovation
Our bedroom progression so far! It’s the first day the Decorator has been in and although it doesn’t look much so far, I’m so pleased! We’ve had the room skimmed by a plasterer, next is paint, then the carpet is getting fitted in a week’s time 🙌🏻 We’re having a dark blue wall behind our bed, which is pretty adventurous for us, we’ve normally just gone for neutral. #stiffkeyblue#homerenovation#bedroomrenovation#homeinspo#bedroominspo#darkbedroom
We chose the color Grey Brook for our Master Bedroom. These samples have been painted on our wall for so long I can’t remember which one it is. Lol! I know a few posts ago I swore next time I was calling our Painter yet here I am, furniture moved, paint brush in hand, about to tackle this room. This dirty yellow has just reached the pinnacle of my last nerve... Here’s to being done before school pick up! 🙌🏻
THE PLAN// on the other side of this wall is the main bathroom and again we have the same issue with size. Therefore we will create a new wall level with the door. ( a new entrance to the bedroom will come from taking out the airing cupboard) Eventually the wall will come out in the bathroom to extend out.
B e d r o o m 🌿 little before and after of the bedroom...all the feels for the moses basket in the before pic, though 🙊 The room feels more airy and spacey now; I love it 😍 my only wish is that I would have preferred to have my blanket box at the bottom of the bed instead of under the window, but the huge chest of drawers on the other wall means you wouldn’t be able to get past, so I had to move it! I don’t think you realise how big Ikea furniture is until you get it in your room; the chest of drawers is huge!
FRONT BEDROOM PROGRESS
All wallpaper stripped off proving all the black marks in the corner was only condensation where they had a wardrobe screwed to the wall.
Tried to remove all the artex but one patch just wouldn’t come off so I decided it would be best to pull the ceilings down.
Spare bedroom morning vibes........and then the reason why we are in the spare room! So lucky to have such a clever husband who is working so hard on this 💙 @ricalbery .
It is such a strange thing to feel so proud of how far we come while simultaneously being overwhelmed by how much there is left to do 😶
We don’t technically have a shower yet. We can’t use our AC yet. We aren’t able to keep food in our fridge yet. And the list goes on. 📝
Sooo this is my mantra for the weekend anddd the foreseeable future, ha
Happy Friday friends!
