Bedroom Reno Part 6 – Completed: Before and After

Breigh October 6, 2008 17

Well the bedroom is almost done and other than a few finishing touches (like door handles!), we are finished, whew!

Here are some before and after shots to compare.

After:

There you have it, our new super comfy and cozy bedroom!

We ended up getting a few more things than we had anticipated, like a new mattress (which was desperately needed), but that happens in every renovation project I think.

Xander is afraid, because his ‘man cave’ (the spare room, which he uses as an office / play room) is next!

    I love your apartment! The painting is so beautiful, the wall frame is cool, the lovely curtain, the cozy bed, etc. You can become an interior designer.

    By the way, are you feeling better?

    Hi thanks for visiting my blog. Wow, you’ve done a good job with the renovation. Did you do the color scheme yourself? It’s superb. And the lighting is perfect too. I’m still doing mine (last year when I arrived my husband had a giant poster of Scooby Doo up on the wall – even though it’s a real one and was very expensive I vetoed it and now it’s stored on the loft). But it’s not fully done yet, lighting will be the last touch before putting up some pictures and paintings back on the new wallpapered walls again. I just need time to do it, I’m very indecisive if it comes to designing and decorating, I can be retro today and Victorian the next day, green lover this minute and purple the next second!

    Oh I just LOVE it! I wanna come over and spend the night now..lol I love the picture above your bed!! I noticed on your door you have those window things at the top. I find that so odd that they have those here..same with the bathrooms. I dont understand it. Our bedroom doors all have square windows in them but it’s that weird frosted glass where you cant see anything threw it..makes no sense at all. You both did a beautiful job!!!
