Step by step we have been putting the Provision back together!
I debated on how much of the upstairs to share,
and decided to go all out and share it all
from where we started to where we are today!
For those joining me for the first time
from Between Naps On the Porch....
First ~ Welcome
Second~ to catch you up to date
My husband and I bought this house
at the beginning of the year
and have spent the past 8+ months
gutting it and putting it all back together.
We were so excited this week to FINALLY
have the upstairs ready for carpet!
However to really appreciate the change
it helps to go back and see just where we started
and how far we have come!
This is what the room looked like
we added a wall to divide the bedroom from the hall.
While we took down most interior walls and
ceilings in the house,
we decided to leave the original walls and ceilings
in this room.... opting for a fresh paint job and trim
to bring the room up to par.
This is what the room looked like the first time
we walked thru the house!
Exposing the entrance to the secret room.
Our contractors framed a new entrance
to this room, creating a new closet
and hang out place for Madison!
Room gets new trim
and a paint job!
Oatmeal and Purple!
(sorry for the bad photo)
When I first saw this dormer....
it screamed at me
" Window seat!"
To the left of this was the original landing
and a hall leading to a small open space which would
become the new bathroom.
We removed the plywood in order to prepare
the steps to be reversed.
Once the stairs were reversed
it was time to build a new banister.
(We will put that toilet anywhere!)
Wayne and I worked at setting the newel posts
and setting the balusters!
The finished banister!
Minus the awful blue wall!
From the other direction.
We added trim work to the hall.
Remember the window bench idea?
And in the end...
We have carpet and a finished room!
