Five Panel Door

Here is a before photo of the five panel closet door in the master bedroom. Untitled Here is what it looks like finished. Untitled Untitled I stripped the layers of paint off the original hinges. Untitled I made a door jam out of douglas fir for the old hallway access that has been covered by drywall for over 25 years. It will eventually be a closet once we move the furnace. Untitled image

Stripping the paint is so far the time consuming part of this bedroom. It is moving right along though. Untitled Untitled Untitled

Master Bedroom

Finally getting the ball rolling on the master bedroom. My friend Chuck came over to help me do the texture. Untitled Untitled We decided to go with a two tone color scheme. The ceiling and above the picture rail will be a vanilla white. Beneath the picture rail will be a Breezeway Blue. Untitled The pan light is an antique. I rewired it so it is good for another 100 years. The original colors of this bedroom are nearly identical to what was here in this bedroom in 1915. Untitled

Pantry light

After two years of the pantry completion, I decided to get the most period appropriate light fixture. The globe has daisys that were painted. However I decided to repaint the daisys because half the paint was gone. Ironicaly, I found another identical shade on ebay for the mudroom which I will post pics of pretty soon. 1915craftsmanbungalow.blogspot.com 1915craftsmanbungalow.blogspot.com

Bathroom Cabinet

We found this cabinet at an antique store. It was covered in 6 to 7 layers of paint. I sanded it down to the bare wood. I primed and painted the cabinet after sanding. I also removed the hardware and placed them in a jewelery ultrasonic to remove the paint. The cabinet looked to be once a built-in cabinet in a 1920's home. Untitled Untitled

Master Bedroom

After loosing my domain, blogging has been a bit frustrating. This is the first time in about 7 months I have been able to access my blog... The master bedroom has been underway on being completed. I had to do a lot of re-wiring etc. I used 5/8 drywall over the lathe and plaster on the celing. I rented a drywall lift that came in real handy. Untitled Untitled I spent two full days re-wiring the bedroom abd the main line that runs underneath the house. Untitled Six straight hours it took me to re do the wiring in the crawl space. Untitled My wife Jovita has been a big help through our renovation. Untitled Here are the Master Bedroom windows before stripping. I had to remove the glass to do this job. I wound up breaking the glass and installed thicker glass on all four windows. 1915 CRAFTSMAN BUNGALOW New sash cords are installed. I also oiled the pulleys. 1915 CRAFTSMAN BUNGALOW Here are the finished stained windows. I will install the trim after the paining and texture is complete. 1915 CRAFTSMAN BUNGALOW My friend Chuck came over to help me mud and tape the drywall. 1915 CRAFTSMAN BUNGALOW A fisheye view of what it looks like today. 1915 CRAFTSMAN BUNGALOW
