Fixer Upper Friday: Repurposing Entire Rooms

As you know, I’ve been spending a lot of time working on fixer upper #2, the five bedroom house my family owns in Pennsylvania. De-cluttering, painting, patching, and otherwise re-imagining. When we first bought the house,  we used three of the bedrooms as bedrooms, one as a walk-in closet, and the other as an office. At the time, we had school aged kids, different career demands, and lots of visiting family members. Now, the kids are all off to college, career demands have changed, and family get-togethers are hosted in fixer upper # 1. Because life circumstances change, the purpose of the different rooms in your home can change as well.

Who says you can’t switch around the functions of entire rooms in your home? This is what I’ve been doing in fixer upper #2. I’m completely re-imagining the blueprint of the rooms around the house. So far, what used to be the walk-in closet is now a stunning bedroom and what used to be the master bedroom is slowly becoming the new and improved office (I’ll dedicate a separate blog post to the office when it’s complete, but I’ll give you a sneak peek here!). The two bedrooms on the top floor which were the kids’ rooms now make up our pretty guest quarters. Progress is slow and steady, but it’s progress nonetheless.

Check out the new master bedroom and the unfinished office space!

Spring will be here in no time. What better time to start switching things up in your home?!

  1. Beautiful work. I would never have thought of turning a walk-in closet into a bedroom, but makes sense. You need a larger area for your office; after all, most of the time you’re in the bedroom, you’re in bed.
