Staycation Master Suite

It’s our annual April vacation where the kids go to daycare and we stay home and work on the house – coincides with our birthdays.  This year the focus was on the master suite (just a few more weeks and we’ll have our own room!).

Monday was Alex’s birthday so we did a family fun day but we worked Sunday (Saturday was alex’s bday party), Tues-Friday.  Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday the focus was on finishing the trim in the Master and painting the master bathroom.  Ryan got the built-ins finished and all the trim installed by Wed night night.  I painted Tuesday and Wednesday (2 coats on the trim and 1 coat on the walls).  So the master bathroom just needs one more coat on the walls.

Same blue as the small bathroom

The master bathroom trim is white (Ben Moore Chantilly Lace to be exact) – the rest of the house is Linen White (more off white) but we thought with the tile the bright white looked better.

Left built-in finished!

Technically the built-ins need shelves still but the grooves for putting the brackets in are there so it’s just a matter of making the shelves and installing the brackets.

Closet is trimmed out as well – the light box has to be trimmed out but that’s it.

Doors and chair rail all done – even the little closet is trimmed out

Thursday was flooring day!  First we sanded – that took all afternoon, then after a dinner out I went back and did the first coat of poly

First round of sanding

1st coat done!

These are the same as the other bedroom – cherry – but a bit more variety in color I feel like.  It’s beautiful!  Today is our last actual vacation day, we got the sanding done and Ryan is doing the 2nd coat of poly.  Saturday I’ll come over and do the third and by Sunday night we’ll be back in the house (we are staying at my parents while the poly dries) – the fumes generally bother me but it is pretty contained to the bedroom only and the weather is PERFECT for drying the floors quickly and leaving the windows open over night.

We’ve got 3 weeks before we can put a rug in so we have the time to get the trim and walls all painted.  Going to be a busy few weeks as we can’t wait to get in there!
