The Lake House Renovation: Our Bedroom, Day 19

We went with sliding doors for the bedroom closets to stay true to the era of the house.

And also because I polled my Facebook hive, and there was a landslide majority for sliding doors over bi-folds.

Well, well, well. We haven’t touched the exterior in a while!

The sconces just outside our bedroom are now in, and they’re one of my favorite updates to the house so far.

Trim work extends to our gorgeous-green bedroom. If you need to be reminded, it’s Sherwin-Williams’ Retreat.

Half of the room has trim. It wasn’t what I was going for initially—I wanted slim trim or none at all—but we aren’t financially prepared to keep backtracking, so I decided to live with it.

I have learned my lesson, though. Don’t ever assume your contractor conveyed all of your wishes accurately. Step in and clarify. Every. Time.

In love with the new ceiling light in our bedroom. I found it on Amazon, and it’s called Holtkoetter 5402 BB 13SW Halogen Ceiling Fixture, Medium, in Brushed Brass with Satin White Glass. Hello, beautiful orb.

Second coat of paint done!

The color, Sherwin-Williams’ Retreat, has bluer tones when overcast outside and olive tones when sunny. It’s stunning!

I missed the day we painted the ceiling, but anyhow, today we started painting the walls.

As I headed in to paint, a minor meltdown occurred when I realized the drywaller didn’t finish any of the edges… because our contractor probably forgot to tell him we aren’t doing trim. Ugh!

At some point, though, I stopped crying into my paint can and finished the first coat, which looks so beautiful.

I am definitely painting this room dark green. It has been determined.
