Was it back in September that I promised to post the “after” photos of the remodel? And now we’re in January. Shameful, really.
I’ve got no excuse except that I wanted to have all the little details completed before pulling out the camera. A silly goal now that I think about it. Who knows when I’ll find the perfect benches to use as bedside tables? Or the right lamps? Or the ideal basket to hold books? And why rush it? I just want to appreciate what we’ve already got.
So here are some photos of the remodeled bedroom. We raised the ceiling, added skylights, replaced the small window with this large one and added a transom. All in the hopes of getting more natural light. It worked. It streams through the window and skylights during the day. And moonlight floods the room on clear nights. We’re thrilled—and relieved—it worked out.
I’ll post photographs of the other rooms in the next week or so.
