I’d be happy if I never had to look at this room again…for real! Despite being the tiniest room in the house, it’s been the biggest pain in the you know what to fix. What’s even worse is that we haven’t really started with any of the real transformation stuff. All I’ve managed to do is chip paint for the last month and I’m so over it! But since this space is destined to be Mad Hearts headquarters (aka the office), the DIY’ing continues – albeit begrudgingly!
But onto better news, the stair are finally complete! Though I was never a big fan of the wrought iron railing, we decided to keep it because a) it was original to the house b) we didn’t want to spend the money on a new one. Kleber took on the hefty task of refinishing the rusted railings and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Every time I saw him covered in a black spray paint after spending hours working on this project, I thanked my lucky stars for my hardworking guy! Next step will be replacing the gold accents and fixtures, as well as adding picture frames and wall art to make the space a little more inviting when visitors walk in – we’re making progress!
