In my six years as an adult (aka, married and not living with Mama and Daddy) this is the longest I have ever lived in one place – 2 years and 4 months so far! And I’m itching to do some interior design. The problem is, I’m stuck! I don’t want to redesign anything. I love the finished rooms just as they are. But I do have 2 rooms I can’t wait to get my hands on:
My office is occupied. As I mentioned in a previous post, we have some friends living with us and my office has been a guest room for the past 6 months. I can’t wait to get it back and redesign it. I’m not going to repaint or replace furniture but I have some rearranging, storage, and decor ideas. I also have in the back of my mind (ok, and occasionally in the front of my mind) that this room will one day function as a nursery. Can it be my office and nursery? Does that work? I’ve sketched it out on paper 10 different ways that will work but I wonder if it’s practical.
Our master bathroom needs a major overhaul involving taking down a wall, building 2 more walls for a tiled in shower, lots of tiling, some plumbing, a new sink cabinet … I’d love to get started but we need some moolah first! The good thing about having to be patient is that Jason and I have reworked the floorplan/design of the bathroom several times and thought about several different tile options and I think we’ve made some great progress.
Current state of the bathroom:
FYI, our master bathroom used to be a bedroom (9’x11′) so it is quite large and has wood floors. Our commode is in what I call a “toilet closet.” We think it’s a complete waste of floorspace so we’ll be taking down those walls. Also the laundry area is housed in a former bedroom closet. We plan to close that off into a small “room” so we don’t have to have a curtain hanging in front of it. The door to the laundry room will probably be a folding translucent screen so the light from that window (1 of 2) will still come through. There is another window above the dog crate.
