Old houses are a big pain in the ass. They are beautiful and have so much unique character and detail – stuff I love – but when it comes to improving said old house, they are a pain in the ass. Especially for people like us who aren’t handy.
The thing about old houses is that you have to get creative about how you find or create storage and then, on top of that, you may have to work in an oddly configured space.
That’s exactly what is happening with us when it comes to adding doors to our master bedroom closet.
A couple of weeks ago, I went over what I thought were the top five house projects of the past year. They all had to do with bringing in color and creating more function out of our cozy spaces. For 2017, we plan on doing absolutely nothing.
HAHAHAHA, yeah right.
Here’s a list of the top five projects I am planning for 2017 and each is rated on a scale of 0 to 5, 0 being the littlest chance of this project actually getting done and 5 being the highest chance. Starting in January, over the course of several weeks, I’ll detail the reason for each project and share design ideas too.
Dream scenario: to have a master bedroom closet that is a walk-in closet in which both Daniel and I can put away clothes, look through our clothes, get dressed and check ourselves out in a full-length mirror without bumping into each other and even throw clothes down on a chaise longue that is there simply to look good while under a pile of clothes that we were too lazy to put away.
