And we’re back with the upstairs tour!
We basically plopped some furniture down in these rooms and called it a day. They are clean (for the most part) and comfortable for when guests stay, but we decided to put our time and money into the downstairs first since that’s where we live. We joke that we bought the upstairs for ‘the future’ only so we never have to move again 🙂
Let’s go right upstairs…
I love how wide our stairwell is. It’s perfect for running the dogs up and down chasing the laser on rainy days (because that’s the most use it ever gets). Someday we will paint it and I would love a cool gallery wall with maps of places special to us but that’s for down the road.
This is how the stairwell looks most days with our ‘doggy gate’ aka my-sister-found-this-canvas-in-a-dumpster-and begged-me-to-paint-her-something-pretty-over-it. (I’ll get to it someday Sis, maybe when Chloe learns it is not cool to pee on the guest room bed). Sigh.
Upstairs landing, again, pretty boring. The door to the guest bathroom is in front of you.
View of guest bathroom…
with the shower on your left. Someday this room will get a nice light coat of paint. The builder beige in here makes everything so dull and yellow.
To the right of the bathroom we have the two bedrooms, this is the ‘blue room’.
In which only the bedding and curtains are blue. This is most likely the future nursery as it is the smallest of all the rooms and is nice and dark when you shut the curtains. Yay for (hopefully) long nap times!
All the bedrooms have these awesome walk-in closets for storage too!
Then we have the larger of the bedrooms which I call the ‘sunshine room’ because of the FOUR east-facing windows. Time to get up for school kid!
This room also has a cool nook that I think would make an awesome kids’ play/reading corner someday. Right now it’s my craft/junk corner. Sorry for the blurry pic. It makes mess look more artsy? 😉
To the left of the bathroom is our huge bonus room. Right now it is just housing all the junk that hasn’t found a good home yet but eventually this will be a computer/craft/tv/rec/exercise/play room. I’ve already got a paint color picked out and plan started!
This corner will turn into the craft area. I’m going to make a long desk/work area out of a door we found in the trash of the neighbor house’s building site. (That’s two dumpster dive stories in one post in case you were counting)
The TV will stay where it is and the computer desk will move into this corner.
And this last corner will be the exercise/play area next to the couch. Which hopefully we will upgrade to a nice sectional someday for more seating. And add built-in storage along the walls? Who knows!
So that concludes the tour! I love the potential in all the blank slates in this house and I can’t wait for my next project. Thanks for stopping by!
