Bonus Bedroom Improvement

T's project during the move (besides moving all his stuff in) was to improve the bathroom situ. As seen from the Closet Door Makeover, the toilet is ~5 feet from the foot of the bed:

The bathroom did have a door of its own, but not a "real" door, 'cause that wouldn't fit. It was one of those faux-wood folding doors that unfortunately we do not have a "before" photo of. We were so anxious to get it out that we just ripped it out. This is what it would look like if you were going to buy it online, say from Home Depot:

Ug. I shudder just thinking about it. It felt like you were shutting yourself in the closet of a trailer home.

T came up with a plan to modify a louvered door to fit in our non-standard-door-sized door hole. It took a little longer than expected, so for a little while we had a hot pink floral sheet hanging there. T loved that.

Now, however... Now we have a "real" door. Ok, real-ish:

Isn't she a beaut?

And T came up with the brilliant idea of angling the dresser differently so there was more than 9 sq feet of open space in the bedroom. Now there's like 12!

This is his favorite change we made. Mine is still the curtain/closet... and the butler's pantry. What's yours?


  1. Casey, the whole place looks great. My fav is the Butlers pantry. When are you going to have soiree to show it all off in person?!

  2. Aww thanks! We could only host a small soiree due to the aforementioned lack of space... but you bring up a good point - we should have a housewarming party! I'll keep you posted....

  3. Muuuch better than a pink sheet! Tee--hee!

    Oh, and we played a game of blow in the other persons mouth/nose/face last night, so you have perfect timing with this recommendation.
