Virtual Tour - Bed and Bath

This is our master bedroom. As it's just DD and me, the other 2 bedrooms are being used as an office and a library. Our bedroom has not been redecorated since we moved in 12 years ago. LOL! As you can see the walls are very white. I haven't really decided on a color for the walls, but I usually stick with earthy neutrals as a rule. I'm planning on replacing the bed frame with a platform bed with storage drawers underneath in a dark wood with a wood slate or leather headboard. (This house was built in 1953 and is obnoxiously short on storage.) I'm going to refinish the bedside tables to a dark mahogany.

This is the wardrobe I got from my Nannie and Grandaddy. No improvements needed here.

This is the matching vanity. Again, no improvements needed.

And this is our bathroom. There is only one picture as there is only one angle to take a photo from and that's the hallway. Did I mention the house was built in 1953? Not big on the luxury home spa in the 50's evidently. LOL the tub/shower is to the right of this picture. My plan is to replace the tub with a show stall with floating glass doors. The pink wall tile and the black/white floor tile will be gone as will the pink sink. My plan is to drywall the walls, and use matching 12 X 24 faux marble tiles on the shower walls/floor and continue them onto the floor of the room. the walls will be a pale see glass green and the sink will be on a small mahogany colored vanity.

Last but not least, let's look and the 'library'.


  1. I remember the houses from the 50s. So small! But so many of them were really quaint and had a lot of character.

  2. Omg! The house DH and I have was built in '53. Our bathroom is turquoise, and I have to admit, I'm a little jealous of the pink.

  3. SushiQ - Our next door neighbor has the turquois motif, too. I have to say, I think I lasted longer with the pink than I would the blue! LOL
