Metamorphosis Part Deux
(Not to insult your intelligence, but the pics go top left, bottom left, top right, ...you guessed it...bottom right.)
If you are a regular visitor, you know that I have been remodeling just a bit. A few weeks ago, I posted the metamorphosis of Emma's room. Today, it's Jr.'s (we don't call him that by the way) room.
His room was originally our "dining room", but we are not frequent entertainers and we eat in our roomy kitchen, so this space became an everything room. It had my weight machine, a computer desk, and a sewing machine residing in it. It was also connected to the cozy (small) living room by a strange T-shaped opening.
In our plan to add a bedroom without adding on, we asked Jr. if he would like this room for a bedroom. That was cool with him, so I began work...which I have often posted about.
The first pic shows the T as yet untouched. Sorry about the cardboard box...we had just joined the ranks of dishwasher owners.
Second pic shows the framing I installed for the drywall to come.
The third pic is my drywall attempt. This has since been panelled over with pretty knotty pine tongue and groove boards. That panelling is not shown in the final photo...I could not squeeze the room into one shot.
The final shot is knucklehead in his new room. He picked out the wall color and the bed. Cool bed, it makes such smart use of floor space.
Besides the drawers you see, there is also a cabinet door at the foot of the bed. This opens into a large, cozy storage area not taken up by the drawers. On top of this, lies a brand new $300 Serta mattress.
I'll give you 3 guesses as to where he likes to sleep.
