lake house: our bedroom before

you have heard tell of the lake house before. and it's atrocity. the pepto-pink and lavender walls; the circa 1970 toilets; the mish-mash of furniture that came with it. well, friends, it's time to see with your own eyes. i'll start with our bedroom - the before and the inspiration board.

brace yourselves.

from the bedroom's doorway:


the en-suite vanity:


close-up of the metallic floral wallpaper:


ghosts of linoleum past lurking under the vanity:


the harvest gold sink and counter:


and the matching en-suite pottay:


are you so impressed? here's the plan:


a few weekends ago, we did a deep clean and painted the paneled walls white. next steps include removing wallpaper, ripping up carpet to replace with hardwood-looking laminate and building a headboard.

operation lake house resuscitate = go.
