Upstairs Tour

If you stopped by yesterday, you saw the downstairs of the home that my husband, Stephen and I just bought.  Now buckle your seat belts and get ready to see the upstairs :)

When you get to the top of the staircase and look to the left, you see the hall closet, bathroom, and 2 bedrooms (picture to the left).  When you look to the right, you see our bedroom (picture to the right).  We'll start in the master bedroom...
Right when you look in the door, you see where our bed will go (that is not our bed, it was the previous owners, they hadn't gotten it out yet..).  You also see our closet (to the left of the picture)
Here's a shot of our bedroom after you've walked in the door more (our bathroom is behind you, our closet is to your left and our bedroom door is to the right)
This is the view of our bedroom if you're standing in front of our closet door.  The bathroom is to the right - don't worry, Stephen was simply checking to make sure that the toilet had been fixed per our request after inspection, he is not doing anything that shouldn't be put on the internet!

This is our closet.  The picture to the left shows you what it looks like from our bedroom door (the door you see leads to our attic).  The picture on the right shows you what the closet looks like from the attic door.  You should've seen our closets in Chicago - this is a MAJOR improvement!
The master bathroom; the picture to the left shows you the right side of our bathroom and the picture to the right shows you the left side of our bathroom
Let's move on out and check out the hall closet and the hall bath...
The picture on the left shows you the hall closet - awesome storage!  The picture on the right shows yo the hall bath.  Now onto the bedrooms...
When you get to the end of the hallway and go to the room on the right, you go into what we fondly call the "farm room".  This room had a farm mural painted on the walls and ceiling...ay yi yi!  What a hard room to paint!  The picture to the left shows you what the room looks like when you're looking out the door and the picture on the right shows you the alcove window with the window seat.  
When you get to the end of the hallway, and go to the room on the right, you head into the pink (now tan) room.  The picture on the left is what the room looks like when you're looking out; the picture on the right is what the room looks like when you're standing in front of the door.

That's it for our upstairs tour.  This house has 3 different colors of trim throughout the house with 2 different types of sheen.  Needless to say, we've been busy!  We've already painted 4.5 rooms as well as the trim that's in that room.  I'll be back soon to show you our progress!
