With our son’s wedding coming up at the end of June coupled with the fact that we hadn’t done anything to bedrooms since moving in back in 1996, we decided it was a good opportunity to all three bedrooms. Given that Sam had a broken foot from the St. Patrick’s Day pub crawl, it was something that would keep him busy without miss the run, swim and bike training.
We have three bedrooms upstairs. The third bedroom being Mike’s old room was not too guest friendly so that was one objective and reason to do it. The cat was another reason. We cannot tell you what cat pee smells like but that was the main reason we decided to rip out the carpets. What we didn’t realize was we were hiding beautiful wood floors.
When we moved in, the floors were all marred and covered in paint. Our reaction was to put down carpeting. We never for a moment thought about the beauty that they could be if we only knew what to do with them. And so over the years, Miss Moosie decided to was too long a walk down 2 flights of stairs to her toilet, the litter box especially in the middle of the night. That and teenaged kids who couldn’t care less took its toil on the carpet.
In this episode of the Spritzer Bedroom Renovations, we are showing the efforts starting with the second room, the master bedroom. The pictures were taken at the point where we had just finished the walls and trim. Over the next couple of posts, we will be showing the renovations of the third bedroom in more detail. So, you could consider this a trailer of what is to come. Click on the picture if you wish to see an enlarged version.
And this concludes part 1 of the Spritzer Bedroom Renovations project. We hope you enjoyed the show. Please do check back over the next few days as we unleash the rest of the series in more detail.
