The first bedroom is the one right off our bathroom through my hubby's closet breezway we created. After our fireman son went off to college we painted the room like the sky and added a rainbow. It first had our daughter old Lullaby crib in it for our first grandson to take naps at grandma's. After the crib came down, hubby made me the twin bed using real pickets for a fence. When the pocket door went in we added all the white custom shelving and closets. There is an identical closet like the one you see here on the other side of the bed. The Raggedy Ann's were made for me by my MIL, one in 1975...
I wanted a unique vanity and what better to go with the bed and the mural but an arbor. Hubby added the shelf and wired a light under it. I now use 'S' hooks on the lattice to hold scarfs, some neckless's, and other personal item. He also added a power strip in the cabinet on the right that houses the blow dryer, curling iron and hot brush. The chair still has that pad in a pillow case, makes for easy washing, but I plan to make new covers sometime. On each side of the vanity are Closetmaid closet organizers. I was going to add roman type blinds to them to cover them up. So many little touches to complete or add but the bones of the room is done.
The other wall and door leads out to the hallway. Excuse my laundry, but afterall, it is a closet. The old sewing cabinet is now in the new laundry/craft room. On the door jam, but not in the picture, we have been measuring the 'Grand' and marking the dash with their name, date and inches. Also, as you saw in one of the bathroom pictures, I had pictures taped to the wall of our ancestors. They were taken down for this picture and now have been replaced, in frames, showing our family tree. A friend of mine painted the tree and added extra details to blend with the wallpaper bourder. It turned out better then I had expected. The one area by the shelve is where the closet was for this room. It has now been painted.
On the wall opposite the closet is where we put the washer/dryer.
And this space now looks like this, my pantry.
Of course we now have flooring and granit counters.
Excuse my hubby's apparel, remember it gets HOT here! While he worked on this I painted the built in hutch.
This space was used for a dining room...
...until we started on the new kitchen, which you all will get to see in part 3.
