For those interested in the rehab of Radiance Manor, here is the next project. I have now moved upstairs! John is working his way into the basement 😀
This is the middle bedroom. It is going to be the guest bedroom, although no one wants to stay in it now 😀 It is also my practice room for guitar, but it really is not inspiring at all, I have to say.
Out of all the wallpaper patterns in the house, this one is the least offensive in terms of color and pattern, but it is in the worst shape of all the rooms.
I am not exactly sure what was going on here. At first I thought it was just patched paper, but it is layers of paper over the same wallpaper with what seems like drywall compound in between?
The wall could be messed up under this, so it should be interesting anyway…
There was a roof leak (anyone remember the slate work we had done in the fall?) and some of the wallpaper had gotten moldy:
Then there is this, and I don’t even want to think about what happened here.
And then there is the red closet door because why not?
Of course, there is the other door.
Sure no one wants to stay here?? Again, I have to remember that the reason we were able to afford this house was because of how poorly it was treated. Poor Radiance Manor.
I do practice in this room, but like I said, it isn’t very inspiring right now. It does have a big bright window, though.
This picture was taken over a year ago when we were first looking at the house. I think it was one of the subsequent checkup up visits we did because I see snow and there was none when we first saw the house. I just can’t believe how much time has passed.
Anyway, this room should be pretty straight forward. Wallpaper removal – which has been really easy so far – then patch and paint. New window coverings, painting the closet door, new light fixture and replacing the missing door handle. Seriously – what happened to the door handle?? Still working on paint color ideas, but I am leaning towards a mauve or rose colored room. Or possibly light blue.
