We’ve done remodeling on one level or another in every room on the main level of Stone House Lane except for the Master Bath.
It’s not for lack of planning…we have a plan that involves marble, subway tile, bead-board and a clawfoot tub.
But other rooms took priority and now the basement floors and the back yard are screaming “Do something to me!” So we have put the major bathroom remodel in the master bath on hold for a few months. Except … that bathroom HAD to have more storage. ASAP!
Here’s a picture from the real estate website when the house was for sale…notice the shelf/seat/box coming out from the side of the tub. Our plumber told us there was no plumbing under that box … maybe the builder had seating in mind! I don’t need extra seating in the bathroom…I need a place for my stuff because no matter how much I’ve purged in an effort to simplify, I still have STUFF!
We talked about built in storage and then one morning I had an epiphany …
We weren’t using this armoire in the master bedroom!
It has all the room I needed for storage now and it fits perfectly into my remodel plan for later.
So The Husband took a saw and cut out that box next to the tub. He had to add some temporary beadboard to the wall to hold us over until we remodel the bathroom.
He also added beadboard and a couple of shelves to the inside of the armoire and took out the lazy susan that once held a television.
Of course I painted the inside…and TaaaaDaaa! Perfect amount of storage!
The bathroom still has the 80’s surfaces like this swirly beige tub, but not for long, one of these days soon there will be a claw foot beauty sitting right here.
The armoire was an easy fix and I love the way it looks!
This weekend The Husband is working on the garage and surprise! I’ll be painting 🙂
