Ceiling of our dreams

While our master bathroom was under construction over the past few weeks, I think I mentioned that we had a few things updated in our main bedroom space as well.  Specifically, we had the old acoustical tiles removed and replaced with a drywall ceiling, installed a ceiling fan, and installed crown molding around the room.  We figured this was the best time to do this work since we had to completely vacate the room anyway for the duration of the bathroom renovation.  

Previously, the ceiling area looked like this:

Not great.  It had icky ceiling tiles that were falling down and a weird orb light that could have been great in a different kind of space, but was definitely not very master-bedroom-y!  I took an intermediate shot of the room once the drywall was in:

As you can see from the blue tape in the pic above, we’re now prepping the room for some re-painting now that we have a completely new wall separating the bedroom from the new bathroom!  We also need to touch up around the perimeter of the room where the new crown was installed.

We’ve been camped out for weeks in our spare bedroom which has neither ample space, nor any kind of paint or decor.  We’ve been sleeping okay in there with our mattress on the floor, but getting ready in there is a challenge since the space is so tight and we didn’t want to spend too much time organizing our temporary space.   Needless to say, DH and I are very motivated to reclaim our master bedroom asap!

Cheers,

  1. That ceiling fan is gorgeous! And you’re right, not many are! I’ve repainted some of the ones in our house to try to update them for the time being. They can be super necessary though!
