The Goal: Turn what was once my office into our bedroom, and then turn what was once our bedroom into a guest room.
If That Is Confusing: You can consult the Before & After Floor Plans here...
However, things would be moving along at a slightly faster clip if I had done more work this weekend. Instead, I was lured to the Whitney Museum by Justin-- promises of an Edward Hopper exhibit made the invitation impossible to refuse. And then it seemed inconceivable to part ways without a glass of wine on the Upper East Side... And so, I didn't actually start working on removing the platform until around 1:00 on Sunday afternoon. (Sorry Mummy.)
Here's where we are so far...
|Sunday Afternoon: Approx. 1:00|
|Sunday Afternoon: Approx. 2:00 - Storage Loft Cleared|
Also, as it turns out, I am a bit of a hoarder. I don't know how this happened because my mom is a stealth organizer and has a place for everything and everything in its place, but deep inside I desire to keep everything "just in case", and having that storage loft was only aiding the habit. It was actually slightly therapeutic to sift through everything up there and make a mountain of stuff to be sent to Salvation Army.*
I assure you, once we get our bedroom set up in there, it will become more apparent that this was actually an act of aesthetic genius and not an urban sacrilege.
*FYI. If you live in Williamsburg, Salvation Army is about to hit the mother-load, so you should swing by this coming weekend to see what diamonds I have dropped off.
|Sunday Afternoon: Approx. 3:30- Loft and Support Wall Removed|
