Above: This is a view of the area at the top of the stairs, it is a small loft-like space. Also the frame of the closet is to the right of the stairs. We did not build our house it was just in such a disgusting state when we bought it that we had to gut it all the way down to the studs.
Below: This is a view from the top of the stairs looking toward the front of our house. Just an interesting side note-the people that lived here before us raised chickens in the basement...of course they did, why not?
I can't seem to find a single picture of what our bedroom looked like before but here are a few of what I am in the process of doing.
Below: This is that loft area at the top of the stairs. After I paint that end wall we are attaching shelves and puting a table and chairs there.
This is a look at the mess at the other end of the room. It is all painted at least!
Joel and I saw that window divider idea in a Ready Made magazine. It works really well in a space like this to create some division...just don't tell anyone what you are doing before you decide to make one because everyone you know will donate 5 windows a piece to you...I warned you. This side of the divider will be the TV area.
The front part of the room will be the guest bedroom, which I am most excited about. You may sweat all night long but you will have the cutest place to stay!
