Master Bedroom Not Done. Yet. But Progress.

It all started months ago. Heck probably a year ago. Ugly drop tile ceiling. Dirty dingy gray carpet. A closet not deep enough for hangers and lets not forget the peeling paint.

The procrastination party start about here. Room stripped and sanded. Radiator stripped. Ceiling holding out for wallpaper. Extra old doors crafted into new closet. The room was primed and ready for a least a month.

Let the party begin! Radiator painted. New shiny air vent. All hooked up a letting out heat.

All doors painted. A few hung with their beautiful crystal knobs. :)
My dear h and I are a bit DIY challenged. Couldn't get a few of the doors to hang straight so we put it off for another day. Better than a fight. :)

Closet done. Almost. Some of the hardware is installed. Still have a few organizing tricks up my sleeve. Have to maximize that space. But isn't it awesome?

The ceiling is wallpapered. Can't really see it. It's not the tin like stuff, just a random pattern. Love it.

The crown molding is primed and painted. Ready for install. Waiting on the pros. Even if I owned a compound miter saw, I am not willing to teach myself on $200+ worth of crown. One day I will accomplish that goal. Hey, TOH or Steve I'm a quick study!

The project will be finished when the floors no longer look like this.Thanks for the kick Melissa at the Inspired Room, I still have a lot to do. But I am happy to have made such progress.

Applause! Great job! DH and I wallpapered the ceiling in one of our guests bedrooms and I know how hard that one job is!! The door is lovely with its panels and I love the color you chose!

May I ask how you stripped the radiator- we have several very old ones that have layers of peeling paint but I know nothing of how to do this.
