completion (partial)…

By in Upstairs Bathroom, Upstairs Hallway

Several weeks ago I started painting a part of my upstairs hallway that I had left unpainted for the past several years after a remodel. This quickly morphed into an upstairs hallway painting/upstairs bathroom partial remodel project. I’ve never really liked the upstairs bathroom. I painted it after I moved in but never really liked […]

catch up, catch up, catch up…

By in Upstairs Hallway

Two years ago I remodeled my upstairs hallway along with my bedroom and the results were much better than I expected. In all of the photos I posted I left something out however- the wall outside my upstairs bathroom. This wall is bumped out from the rest of the hallway due to construction the previous […]

new hanging artwork…

By in Master Bedroom, Upstairs Hallway

I finally got around today to hanging some artwork in my bedroom and upstairs hallway. Only two pieces, to be precise, but it’s a start. I always get anxious when it comes to hanging artwork and my head fills with questions such as “is this the right piece for this location?” or “is this piece […]

the forgotten wall…

By in Upstairs Bathroom, Upstairs Hallway

It’s hard for me to believe that I did my bedroom and upstairs hallway remodel two summers ago! What’s even harder to believe is there is still a section of the hallway that I haven’t painted yet. It consists of a bump-out that was constructed when the upstairs bathroom was put in and some built […]

the holidays are upon us

By in Life, Upstairs Hallway

Hello everyone. Sorry for the absence of posts as of late, things have been nutty. Report card time has just passed, I re-injured my back (I had a bad fall two winters ago) and have been laid up a lot of the time. Despite all this I am excited for the holidays! I’m looking forward […]

the upstairs hallway is almost done

By in Upstairs Hallway

After a lot of work this weekend my upstairs hallway is about 99% finished! I still have to finish painting the bedroom doors and have the new door installed on Thurston’s room, but all the patching, priming and painting is finally done. I’m particularly pleased with my new hallway light, a Fado pendent downlight from […]

no more wires

By in Upstairs Hallway

Before: After: Remember how the wires ran out through the walls into my upstairs hallway and back into the rooms? Well no more! Last Saturday my dad and I and a friend of his re-wired the upstairs, running the wires up into the attic and back down through the bedroom walls or ceilings as needed. […]

off it goes

By in Upstairs Hallway

This dump trailer holds all the remnants of my upstairs hallway’s former self- ugly paneling, scrap lumber framing, drop ceiling tiles and the drop ceiling frame. I spent an hour and a half yesterday running up and down my stairs as I dragged it all out of my bedroom where I had been putting it […]

almost done patching

By in Upstairs Hallway

I have been patching the upstairs hallway walls since Saturday evening and I am almost done. Thank you to Anna for suggesting MH Ready Patch because it is a dream! It goes on great and really fills in all those cracks and nail holes, and with the help of some fiberglass tape works great for […]
