A sneak peek at the third floor

We have been quite the busy little bee's remodeling our house! But, for the moment we've come to a little bit of a stand still because, well, money doesn't grow on trees! (We are taking donations, though! lol) So, I figured I may as well post the before and after pics of some of the rooms on our third floor. The first pic is of our hallway. For some reason I forgot to take a before pic, but we painted the hallway a khaki color and all of our trim on the second and third floors has been wood filled and painted white.

Next are the pictures of our office. They are pretty self-explanatory..we used the same color that we painted the hallway (because I got a great deal on 5 gallons of that color for $30!). Installed blinds and hung a window treatment. The closet has never had a door and who knows how long it will be before we install one ourselves! P.S. Don't you just love the zebra accents? When I was in college I collected everything and anything zebra. By the time Greg and I moved in together he had officially banned it. I'm surprised he agreed to let me display some of it, but I think we both agree that it looks better than a bare room!

On to our master retreat! OK, it's really just a bedroom. As you will see below we painted it a blue that just happens to match my blue throw pillow. Hmm...I wonder how that happened! :) We also installed blinds and Greg mounted the TV on the wall. We still have quite a few things left to do in here, but who knows when they will be completed. Such as installing a new light fixture. Sorry I didn't take a picture of the light bulbs dangling above our bed, but trust me, they are there! We also plan on upgrading all the doors throughout the house and painting them white. But, we have so many other priorities right now that it may be a year from now before that happens. I would also love to get a nice window treatment to help accent our bedding!

The third floor also hosts a bathroom, which we haven't touched yet so I'll save those pictures for another time! And also the nursery!!! I'm hoping to have it completed in about a month and then it will get it's very own post! I'm pretty pumped about it! Stay tuned for pictures of the second floor which will come soon!

LOVE the office. You could make the closet into other storage by just adding more shelves and such. Just a thought.

Very nice. Can't wait to see the nursery.

I LOVE it!!! You are both pretty talented. I am jealous of the walk-in closets, we don't have those here... :-)I wanna see more!

I do LOVE the zebra!!! The blue is a fabulous shade for a master and looks very classy with your bed...I am excited to see the nursery:)

You have done such a great job! It's amazing what just a coat of paint will do! The zebra accents look great and I love the blue in the master bedroom.
I'm excited to see baby Parker's room!!!
