Second floor updates

Posted on March 10th, 2013 by Susanna

We’ve made lots of progress since our last post about our upstairs improvements.  After finishing the drywall, installing recessed lights, and putting in some extra insulation, we hung some bead board on the knee walls, painted everything (took FOREVER) and finally layed the new floor. Laying the floor was way too much fun, I seriously could lay floors all day long.

So then we got started on our closet.  We decided to try and build it ourselves.

It worked out really well and is ridiculously more functional than our old single rod closet. Next post we’ll have some final photos and a budget breakdown!
