But first, a walk down ole memory lane–
This is the "dressing room" inside of our master bathroom space. When we first viewed the house, it was carpeted and the walls were a little bit different. We expanded the wall you see to the right just a bit to provide room for a larger bath tub. The thing I loved most about this space, originally, was the pretty door molding.
Here's how it looks today–
We replaced the chandeliers with this fun star flush mount (painted gold, of course!). I really debated about keeping the chandeliers. I liked them, but ultimately I decided to stay committed to my mood board to maintain a unified vibe throughout the rooms.
The acrylic frame is a DIY you can see here.
We updated the hardware on the closet doors with these hex knobs.
For the mirror at the end of the L-shaped closet, we replaced the folding doors with a standard door so that I could have a standing mirror. I hated to lose that pretty molding, but it was definitely the most practical place to have this mirror. So I'm glad we did it!
This wall was made more useful with a little DIY magic. I'm really glad we did that. It's been helpful!
This little dresser area is AMAZING. I love having a place for everything, and I am mildly obsessed with re-styling it every couple weeks. I find that the more visible things are, the more I wear them. So pretty storage like this really works for me!
I found this ring dish from Suite One Studio. It's a nice place to keep earrings together.
I'm using these Lewis Dolin pulls again in this room (same as our DIY dresser).
Thanks for taking a peek at my progress!! It's definitely still a "one day at a time" thing, but this past month, I've been feeling really encouraged by the progress we've made in just eight months (or a year, depending on when you start counting). Either way!
If you're currently renovating, don't let yourself get discouraged when looking at other people's already-finished rooms. This stuff takes TIME. You're doing great!!! xx- Elsie
