After my house didn't sell, I thought "Fine then! I'll make it the way I want it."
So out with the old "motel bathroom":
(I want to know who thought this was
a good idea or look. Stupidest thing ever.)
Hello door. Well, there will be a door, after today:
Goodbye to the fireplace no-one noticed:
Hello mantel and built-in's (cabinets and shelves coming later today):
It's really amazing how much difference the mantel alone made. The fireplace now has presence, even with the icky 1980's glaring brass trim. (anyone have any ideas on what to do about that? Paint?)
Even more amazing - Finn has not claimed it as his spot...yet.
Bet he's just waiting for me to put all my priceless family heirlooms up there first.
