I wish I had thought to get some pictures after the furniture was removed and the room was empty but because of the lack of light (no window) and the electricity being off at that time, it just didn't happen. When I finally had electricity, I was so excited to get started on this room that I completely forgot to get pictures.
My family and friends thought we had lost our minds when we took them on a tour of the home before the stuff was removed. They just couldn't see past the mess. Isn't that like a lot of prospective homeowners when they shop for a home? I, however, can always see the possibilities. That is the reason why I need my husbands consent (my choice) before I buy a home. Usually, I send him to look for what he thinks will work and then I look. Lol. I know that is probably backwards from how most people do it, but it works for us. Anyway, back to my remodel...the room was a bit rough with particle board as walls although they had added trim moulding. There was carpet, and an old ceiling fan with no light. They had used a set of bunkbeds and a twin which crowded the tiny 10 x 10 room.
The headboard in this picture is actually the footboard to the bed in the first bedroom. The color of the footboard in this picture is the original color. For the first bedroom headboard, I darkened it with a graphite glaze that gave it a perfect color when finished. We hung it on the wall to make it high enough to be a headboard. We plan to move the air conditioner to the corner which will allow it to blow cool air out into the hallway too. We plan to put a window above the headboard where the air conditioner is. It will give us a beautiful view of the cove that wraps around our cabin on the East side.
