Here are some before and after photos from another renovated area of our 1800’s home project.
We finished renovations of our attic space years ago, but this is our official “before and after” post!
Thankfully this space didn’t need nearly as much work as the rest of our home, as someone had already converted it into livable space. Everything we did in this space was cosmetic.
We would love to see this space have another bathroom added or have it turned into a master suite (as a couple of homes in our area have done), but with the rest of the house needing SO MUCH WORK (new ceilings and walls were needed EVERYWHERE!), we’ll leave this task to someone else to tackle (after we sell it) IF it’s something they want.
Read on to see all the renovations we made in this area of our home.
Removed the old carpet
Refinished the original wood on the stairs and landing area
Removed the iron railing. Tommy then made his own railing with new and old materials to fit the design of the house.
Painted the walls, ceiling and trim
Added a new closet door handle
Added new flooring in the closet
Added new lights
Added moulding (to room 1)
Painted the walls and ceiling
Hung a new ceiling lights/fans
Added new closet door handles
With the help of my husband’s father, we have completed all the renovations ON OUR OWN.
AND FYI—none of us are contractors or have backgrounds in this kind of work. We’ve just researched and learn as we go! You can learn a lot from YouTube too!
