Kid Bedroom 1 – Before

The room we designated for our older son, age 5, was the former master bedroom in the house. (The current master was the result of an addition in 1988.) It has a lot of vintage charm, including a sun-filled room that was an addition sometime in the 1940s, plus a huge closet and an en-suite bathroom. Not a bad deal for a kindergartner.

Here’s what the room looked like at the start:

This is the view facing into the room from the doorway. (The bathroom door is on the right.)

Here’s a closer view of the sleeping area. Note the vintage window dressings. We think these were from the 1950s or 1960s. They were really something.

And here’s the view of the main area of the bedroom. (The closet doors are on the left in the photo below; my younger son is on the right. Watching my phone. Because I am a bad mother.)
