The Big Moment

Three years ago (yes seriously - the date was April 13, 2009) Mr. Yesteryear Acres started the arduous task of restoring our bedroom. It was in really bad shape.  There were layers of old wallpaper, no electricity to the room, water damage, leaking ceiling - you name it.  It needed an entire overhaul. Well the big moment has arrived and Mr. Yesteryear Acres is FINISHED!
 It. Is. BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!
Here are some before pictures:
Look how little my son is!  He is now almost 6'4"!
And don't you love the glue lines on the old wallpaper? So chic!

You can see a little of the water damage above the painting.  We had to keep buckets on the floor to catch the rain. Ahhh the sound of "plink, plink, plink" while you sleep. 

One wall has old has bare plaster. OOOH how can one decide which look is more chic? 

The best wall of the room 

The flooring is extra special isn't it?

I love a room with scaffolding.  It is so Architectural Digest!!!!
I know. I know. You are speechless.  Me too!  Mr. Yesteryear Acres made our bedroom heavenly!!!! 

Look! Look!  We have Electric Outlets!!!!

Look! Look!  We have LIGHT! And a ceiling fan! This is the same wall where my son was sitting in the "before" pictures.

Mr. Yesteryear Acres even redid the entire fireplace mantle.

The best wall of the room "After"



  1. BEAUTIFUL and peaceful...I love it..great job! :)

  2. What a wonderful job! Does Mr. Yesteryear Acres hire out by the day or project for others? I really doubt it as this was obviously a real labor of love! ENJOY!
