Our busy day turned into a busy weekend. Saturday afternoon, after a lovely visit from my Mom, Kyle and I got ambitious and decided to tackle the last major project in our guest room (which, then, overflowed into our Sunday).
When we moved into our house there were only three tiny closets to be spoken of, none of which resided in a bedroom. This wouldn't normally bother me but as the rooms were all relatively small there wasn't much space for additional furniture such as dressers. Over the course of a couple months we had created our master bedroom from two small bedrooms and Kyle even made a very functional closet out of one of our knee-walls. So, one closet down. It was time to hit the guest bedroom.
a couple weeks ago but came to a stopping point where we realized it was sink or swim time for the wall that created a funky hallway next to our stairs that led to an even funkier little closet. We hated that little hallway- the railing is just a little too low to really feel safe, some of the floorboards are split and are unsupported, and the closet itself just wasn't in a convenient spot (not to mention that it didn't have a light in it after we had the electrical wiring updated- can we say 'creepy dark hallway leading to a creepy dark closet?' I know I can). *The picture here is from right after we bought the place, so you have to try to imagine the flooring ripped up, and the railing slightly more substantial.*
