Yes Sir, That's My Baby!

Some of you may have clicked on this post expecting baby pictures of our granddaughter who is taking her time to arrive.  Her parents, Meghan (our daughter) and Tom, are still patiently awaiting the birth and I can't wait to show you pictures of baby Piper when she finally decides to make her debut.  In the meantime... 

Sometimes when writing this blog I wonder whether or not to show you the "before" pictures of a remodeling project.  To be sure, I don't show you everything but I loved my little cottages "before" and it is fun for me to remember how things changed and developed...sort of like parents enjoy looking through their kid's baby that weird?

Well at the risk of being "that" parent, I have some more "baby pictures" of Coast Awhile Cottage today to show you today--the upstairs master bedroom with it's add-on sitting room and adjoining bathroom.

Once again (as in the rest of the house) there is wood paneling on the walls and ceiling and there are hardwood floors.  There is also a nice big window that is original to the house.
Come on inside....

 The wall on the right when you walk in was where the former owner had a bed.  I decided to put a king size bed in this room and it won't fit along that wall so we will take down the light fixtures before we paint.  The king bed will go on the window wall.

 At some point in the past the master bedroom was expanded to add more space, a larger closet and a bathroom.  We have decided to remove the closet and make this area into a sitting room with a TV.  Henry photobombed this picture---you can see him in the closet mirror!  We were both trying to take pictures :)

Here's a closer look at the sitting room...

The flooring is a low quality fake wood that comes in sheets.  It will be removed along with the wallpaper and the air conditioner unit.   We will install central heating and air as well as beadboard on walls and ceiling.

The bathroom adjoins the sitting room.....

Dare we look inside?

Needs a total redo!  We'll roll up our sleeves and get to work next time!
