So when we first moved in this is what our guest bedroom looked like. Ancient rust-colored carpet (that had a disintegrated carpet padding under it), a ceiling fan with no light and white walls!It also has a strange little closet in the middle of the wall.
We did a garage repair and lifted a beam in the ceiling that tore the walls in the guest bedroom and office. Here’s what we were left with:
See the rips in the wall and the old ceiling fan? It was time for that to go!
A close up of the ripped walls before the renovation started.
On the right side of the window.
Dale started by tearing out the old drywall.
He opted to put in all-new insulation on the walls that face the window and the front doorway.
And this is how it looks now, with lovely new walls! Dale skim-coated all the walls so all four walls would be like new. Then we painted the walls blue and put up brand new trim.
We hope to put in new windows next summer, maybe. Lovely blue! Next up: We have to decorate the dang thing. We did get a bed for the room so it’s ready for guests. More pics to come when I actually get pictures on the walls (so…2016).
