Following on from yesterday’s post we’re heading upstairs for the second part of our new home tour. As with the rest of the house, there’s very little up here that actually needs doing and instead, the next two floors are a blank canvas that we can get incredibly creative with.
My biggest bugbear though is the bathroom. It’s a small space and it hasn’t been used well. It’s probably going to be the first renovation project we do and I have a lot of ideas. At the moment it is way too blue! And what’s worse is the tiles are different blues on different walls. (And before you ask it’s definitely not a trick of the light. I’ve spent some time trying to work this out!) One wall has more tonal blues while the other three are flat colour.
On this floor we have three bedrooms in various sizes. The largest has a little cubby area which I want to eventually turn into a closed of closet space. But for now we’ve squeezed our wardrobe into it which is not ideal but it’s growing on me.
It’s difficult to get an idea of the space without any furniture to relate it too so let’s run around the other two rooms before the big reveal I’ve been teasing you with!
There are a few areas we need to address but mostly we can just begin decorating these rooms (so expect to see a lot of makeovers very soon!)
Finally we can head up another floor! To get to this last part of the house we have to head up a hidden spiral staircase that leads up to the attic room. This space is beautifully light and airy with plenty of height in the center of the room (even for Al!) although I have walked into the slanted ceiling a number of times already…
The main problem with this room is the staircase. The small, closed off spiral makes it difficult to fit anything large up them. Alex is still working out if we can take them apart, while I’m working on making them prettier… Because let’s face it, they’re not the best looking staircase I’ve ever seen.
So that’s the house as we moved in two weeks ago. I can’t wait to look back on these posts once we’ve finished. I expect that won’t be for at least a year, but this is now the fun part right! I’ll be sharing the whole journey here of course. From small updates to full room renovations. Where I get my inspirations from and of course all the many, many DIYs I have planned! There are so many on the to-do list already. It’s time to get started!
