Bedroom & Dressingroom ~ Before, in Between and After

Here’s the post I was meaning to publish while in China on Friday. I’m concluding the upstairs living portion of the delayed Before, in Between and After Week with the bedroom and small walk-through room that leads into it.

The family who lived here before us had two sons. These houses are really tiny to begin with, only about 667 square feet on one level (with same square footage in the basement including garage) so both Wille’s room and the walk-through and bedroom were added to in the 50’s. The latter rooms became the boy’s bedrooms. We are using them as dressingroom/craft area and bedroom.

Initially there was nothing but a weird hanging bit of closet in the dressing area. Apparently they had to take the bottom part of the closet out in able to get a bed in there. We started out with just a wall of two tiers of hanging rods and added shelving under the hanging closet bit (seen further down towards hallway) but after a while we decided the hanging closet thingy needed to go so we could put sliding doors on that whole wall space. First they were orange trellis.

And later I wallpapered them with a green Ferm Living paper.

Here you can see the temporary arrangement we did under that hanging cabinet in the top photo. Baskets with underwear at the front and because it’s a fairly deep space, piles with clothes at the back. Hamper at the bottom.

In our family Martin has the most extensive wardobe. My closet used to be in the corner by the window. Just some MDF shelves on brackets and a rod for hangers underneath. Martins space used to be twice that (the whole length of the sliding doors) because 1) He holds on to stuff 2) He’s much more vain than I am :).

I’d been wanting a craft area for a long time and since our house is so small small there’s not a whole room to dedicate to it so Martin suggested we use my former closet space and build a craft desk there. He even offered to purge is own wardrobe so I could move in on “his” side. Said and done and this was the result.

…and adding the bedskirt and ottoman some years later sort of grounded the room.

After many years of baby blue I gave the window wall the yellow treatment.  Sunny sunny!
