House Tour: Upstairs "Before"

Welcome back to the House Tour. Now it's time to take a looksy upstairs, where all three bedrooms and our bathroom are located. Let's go.

I love these stairs.  I want to have an "eighty's prom" themed party and take all the couple's picture on the stairs. I think they are the perfect "prom picture" stairs, don't you?

Here's the lovely carpeted landing, from whence all the rooms branch off.

David thinks this little light is hilarious. It is bedazzled and when you turn it on, it casts a eery red glow. He wants it to be the last thing we change in the house.

Here's our bathroom. We pulled all the wallpaper down before we took this picture. The paper would just peel off in your hand. I wish you could have seen it, though. It was brown equestrian themed Ralph Lauren wall paper. Top that.

Here you can see the brown paint that matched the brown wall paper. Can we just all say that this is a poor color choice for a bathroom? Okay, good.

Here's our bedroom.  That's the closet door. With one of those fancy schmancy tie holders on it.

Here's where the bed goes. Check out those sconces. Wow!

This is the view of the bedroom if you are standing in front of the windows. That door leads back out to the hallway.

The guest bedroom, or what we like to call the "shiny navy blue room."

That's the closet door sticking out in front of the window. We have no explanation to offer you as to why the walls are painted glossy midnight blue. Your guess is as good as mine.

This is the third bedroom or office. That's another open closet door. I'm not sure why all my closet doors were ajar when I took these pictures.

When is a door not a door?
When it's a jar.

Get it? That's my Nana's joke. You can send the fan mail to her.

Well, that's it for the "Before" tour. I can't wait to show you all the work we've already done and the projects that we have planned.

Happy Hump Day.

P.S. If you subscribe to Greener Grass in a reader, you probably got a partial post from me this morning. I accidentally hit publish. YIKES! That post will be finished and coming your way later in the week. Thanks.


  1. We used to sing a song in elementary school music class about the whole "When is a Door not a Door?" Weird!

    This house is a blank canvas of perfect possibility! I'm in love.

  2. Cool looking old house. They are a lot of work, but possess so much character. Ours was built in 1918 and we have enjoyed renovating it room-by-room.

  3. I love your house! Our house was born in 1920. :) Can't wait to see all that you do with yours. It has lots of potential.

  4. You are so lucky in USA to have such lovely big rooms and lovely windows! Love this style of house!
