I'm going back and forth on lighting for this room... I have 2 lights. One is a very simple industrial-style glass pendant, the other is an over the top black iron / crystal 13 light chandelier. I really can't choose! Right now it has a dusty old ceiling fan.
Ahh, the luxurious master. There's my long- suffering realtor, he's in a lot of the before pics. I forgot how bad that area rug was! I removed the closet shelves and hung a curtain in front of the hay-loft access door. Oh! That reminds me... My sister saw the bunk house for the first time when she came to pick up the boys, and when we walked through the mudroom to the barn she stopped in her tracks, jaw dropped and screamed, "You live in a BARN? Those are stables! You are LITERALLY living in a BARN!!!" Uh... yeah! What do you think I've been talking about for the last 2 months? Well, I think she thought bunk house was a figure of speech... but no... it's literally a barn*
*For the record, we are having so much fun! When people ask how we are doing, I think I am coming across negatively because my friends seem a little bit worried about me. For example... we still don't have hot water. We are bumming showers off our relatives, taking them at the pool, or Dan's office... small price to pay for this little adventure. We are fine... better than fine... really! Well, another little hiccup... it's 100 degrees today and if you look at the master pic again, there is no ventilation in that room. The only upstairs windows are across the loft where the boys sleep, so the upstairs of the bunk house is... really hot... we went to church this morning and now we are at Dan's office hanging out. I don't mind the heat as much as Dan, he's going crazy. Mid week it should cool back off. Who cares? We are on an adventure and getting to know each other better than we ever imagined. So far I still like my family.
