House Tour – upper level

Well you’ve seen the main and lower levels, so I’m sure by now you’re on the edge of your seat to see the final floor of the new house.  Even if you’re not, pretend, for my sake?

Here’s the view down the upstairs hall.  You can see the doors for the four bedrooms as well as the hallway to the left that leads to the hall bathroom.

Down that hallway is also a huge linen closet.  Ridiculously huge.  I feel like I need to buy out Bed, Bath & Beyond to fill it up.

Right off of this little stretch of hallway is the hall bath.  Love the double sinks!  Not so crazy about the cheap looking vanity, weird under mirror storage compartment, scalloped toilet seat, and flowered tiles and wallpaper.  Feels like a gut job to me!  At least it’s clean and functional for now.

Going back to the main hall, here’s the first (and smallest) of the four bedrooms.  It’s been taken over by Rich as his music studio for now.

If anything in this house screams “70’s” it’s that accent wall of plaid wallpaper.  Glorious.

Oh look MORE shelving.  We don’t have close to enough books/knick-knacks to fill these, and they’re cramping an already small room.  They’ll meet their fate soon enough…

Next door to this room is another bedroom.  This one has been appointed my domain for now.

I’m almost done taking down the shelving in here, as you can see from the one lone rail left on the wall.

This room is really the home for random furniture.  It felt so sad sitting completely empty!

Next (the door straight ahead in the original hall shot) is the future guest room.  Doesn’t it look inviting?

I know, I know, but we’ve been busy!  And I’m not quite sure where the screws to assemble that bed are…

You totally want to come visit now, right?

The master bedroom is a little more organized looking.  Bonus gratuitous cat photo!  Also, check out that awesome lighting on either side of the bed.

Skylight!  Kinda defeats the purpose of those blackout shades that came with the house, but I love the natural light.

And yes, that is yet another set of shelving.

It’s almost comical.  These will come down too…I’m not dusting them and whatever we would put on them regularly.  We’ve got a great little nook to the side with his and hers closets.

Right off of that you can see the master bathroom in all its pinky peach glory.

We love having a master bathroom, not so sure about the color scheme right now.  We’re tentatively talking about having this be our first major project, although it’s still definitely open to discussion.

So there’s the full tour of the interior of our home.  Lots of potential for improvement.  It’s driving me crazy to have to just sit on my hands for now, but I’m trying to look on the positive side, that we have lots of time to consider all the possibilities and plan out some future projects.  Come 2011 we’ll dive in and get started on at least a few small projects, can’t wait to share them all with you!

    Good bones indeed!! I can’t wait to hear which project comes first – why is the bathroom currently at the top of the list?

    The master bedroom lights are my favourite part, if you’re taking votes. Oh MAN. My dining room wants to take all of them to prom.

      Hahaha I cracked up at the prom comment. The tiny master shower has us feeling majorly claustrophobic after always having a full sized bath/shower combo, so that’s what’s leading us toward that as a first major project. But I’m a little afraid we might end up over our heads on that one…it involves knocking down walls and rerouting plumbing!

    Oh oh oh, this looks like fun. No matter where you start, you will make nothing but drastic impacts. Oooo, love it. Haven’t seen the kitchen, perhaps in an earlier post? I do love kitchen and bath reno’s.

    Good luck, will follow you along.

    I love this blog, Steph!! Also, I’m so happy Alice was finally featured in a photo. I am so impressed with all of the prjects you and Rich are planning to do. Jared and I were getting so fed up last weekend and we were only hanging Christmas lights on our house. Nowhere near as difficult!

    Can’t wait to see the place!

    Love,
    Megan
