Master Bedroom and Hall Bath Photos

It has been a very soggy month here in Ohio. Record rain fall has made this one of the wettest months in the past 150 years, so the yard pictures of all of the pretty spring flowers didn't happen. :( Work has been going on at both houses and waiting for a room that is completely finished before showing pictures is just getting ridiculous, so here are a few photos of two of our mostly finished rooms. The master bedroom closets now have their doors and handles. LOVE them! I was amazed at how much I was able to fit in them. I feel so organized!

A picture of what this corner of the room looked like when we bought the house is here in my Flickr.

I think I would like to eventually get white or mirrored nightstands, but these work for now.

The accent color for this room is a red-orange, which is in the art work and the pretty leaf print fabric that I'll be using as a border on the edges of the curtains. The small chair may get a new slipcover, as well.
The hall bath is small and nearly impossible to get decent photos.
The color on the walls is a fresh green called "Summer Field" by Valspar for Laura Ashley Home. The vanity is from Lowes and the shower curtain and pictures are from Kohl's.

That's it for now. Hopefully it will start to dry out around here and I can start planting my annuals. I have lots of hanging baskets and containers to fill this year. :-)

I'm also sharing this on The Shabby Chic Cottage Blog's Transformation Thursday link event. Be sure to pop over to see all of the great projects this week.

Master Bedroom Ikea Closet

Just a few minor details to finish up and we should be ready to move in! Yea!!!

I know rooms with furniture and accessories are much more fun to look at, but since I don't think I want to show the inside of my closet once its been packed full of clothes, I thought I better show you that now.

The room originally had just one double closet and about 2 feet on either side extended behind the wall, making it a bit awkward to access.

We decided to knock out the wall and install an Ikea Pax system closet.

We bought 3 of the 39" frames and off-set the center unit and trimmed it out with crown molding to give it a custom look.

They only had 2 doors in stock, so we're waiting on the others. I also need to get a few more organizer inserts. But I really like how they seem to make the room look bigger and the ceiling taller...always a plus in a smaller home. :-)

The two bathrooms are also just about finished and I'll show those next.

Have a great week everyone!
