Happy Monday! If you’re in the midwest today you might be snuggled in for the rest of the day like I am. Because #icestorm. So I’m taking full advantage and planning for our master suite. If you’re following along with @everydaymrsblog on Instagram you’ve seen some remodel pics. While I did a lot of updating in our first house this master suite is our first true remodel. I shared a few pictures a couple months ago when we first bought the house (see here). Since then we’ve done quite a bit including painting all the ceilings, trim, crown and walls on the main level. We’ve also switched out the lighting on the main level. But as with most old homes it doesn’t stop there!
We knew when we bought this house the master suite was a top priority to remodel. The master suite in this house is in the top level of the home, which used to be the attic. So we have angled ceilings and some layout issues to work with. Here’s what it looked like when we bought it:
These stairs come up from the main level in the dining room.

So, what are we planning to do with this space?
- demo bathroom wall to increase bathroom space
- move shower from under angled ceiling to center of bathroom, in front of window
- new vanities, lighting, flooring in bathroom
- replace laminate flooring in bedroom with carpet
- close up 3 cut outs in bedroom
- install new stair railing
- install all new trim
- build new bed
Just a rather small list right? #not Right now we are ready for tile in the bathroom and seeing some huge progress. Here’s a little mood board I put together for the feel and look I am going for in this space.
I’m excited to share more of our progress on instagram with you so make sure to follow along @everydaymrsblog and I will of course share the final reveal here!
