Before & After - Master Bedroom

We had such a nice Saturday!  As I said earlier, Monday was kind of crazy.  In fact, a lot of our life has been hectic recently with getting the house as ready as possible to refinance.  Now that we have the appraisal done, we needed to do something FUN as a FAMILY!  Saturday morning we headed to the beach with some friends.  This is only the second time we have been to the beach with Jake.  It was wonderful.  We are so blessed to live a few minutes from the beach!

This is our current master bedroom.  Eventually (possibly next spring), the girls will share this room.  We will hopefully begin remodeling the back of the house this fall.  That back area will be our master bedroom suite.  So here it is - BEFORE pictures:
The house was listed as 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 half bathrooms.  We tore out the 2 half bathrooms.  There is NO earthly reason why we would need 5 toilets in one house (2400 square feet).  Who wants to clean FIVE toilets?  Not I.  The door on the far right is where a half bath was.  The previous owners had already capped off the toilet & sink, but the plumbing was still there.

This picture is taken from the doorway into the bedroom.  The door straight ahead steps down into the master bathroom.  We walled that up.  We made a doorway in the back of the house so this bathroom is accessible from the back area - which will eventually be our master bedroom suite.  Oh....that carpet was nasty.  

AFTER pictures:
Standing at the doorway into the room.  The door that used to go down into the bathroom was where my blue end table is.

Former half bath - now our closet. It also nice having the window & natural light in there.

We went with the same Shaw carpet in all 3 bedrooms as well as the playroom.  I also tried to pick a paint color that will work when the girls share the room.  I have some fun plans for that, can't wait!

Paint color - Valspar Cream in My Coffee  3003-10C
