TBT: House Edition - Master Bedroom

I haven't done one of these in a while, so I figure today was a good day to do another one. We're moving on to my bedroom...

What can I saw to go along with the brown, green, and orange we're going to add the colors purple and lavendar.

I'm not even joking, this is what it looked like. More wires coming from every which way, we actually ended up just shoving all of the wires into the wall and patching the holes, so those wires are forever going to be with us...

Just showing you, well two things, how dirty the house was when we moved in and two the different color walls. For whatever reason I didn't really take a picture of the dark purple wall, other than the picture above, which was done at night and in the semi-dark.

The carpet it supposed to be white...those are just dirt specks, not part of the carpet!

Of course we primed like crazy! Our middle name was prime, we did two coats on every wall.

Yes that's right, the carpet went right into that fabulous bathroom, ew gross, carpet in the bathroom, next to the bathtub too (another post)

Painted...what color? Of course some version of brown.

New baseboards...doesn't it look so much nicer?

next up, the fireplace. Actually what happened was we were getting the carpet installed fairly soon after this and we needed to get that fireplace done, so after the guys finished our bathroom, we asked them if they could do our fireplace as well. They ordered the Travertine and had it done in a few days.

Doesn't it look great? Oh and you can see the new carpet too...guess you know when I took this picture

Next up, this door...if you look out of the door, you can see that it goes to nothing...

This looking up at that same window...not safe right?!? Well when we got quotes to fix this problem we discovered a whole host of other problems and to us we didn't think we would really use it and didn't want the maintence of it and to buy the trex cost double the price of wood but if we used the wood we'd have to treat it at least once a year and we knew we wouldn't do down it came.

We just put in a window. We decided on a picture window in the middle because we have a pretty fantastic view of the mountains. (of course I can't find one picture of our view)

So the day that they did this, we realized that the contractor we hired was installing the windows wrong and we decided to fire him..and luckily we found someone else to finish up the job and he covered everything up before a HUGE storm hit the next night!  Phew...

Doesn't it look great? So much better right? We put that paper up on the window because we lived without window dressings for 2 years, yes you read that right! 

But they were worth the wait!

A picture of us after they were finished installing the carpet. After 5 months of living on the 1st floor of our house, we were finally going to be able to move upstairs! Such an exciting day.

Don't forget to enter the giveaway I'm participating in!
