Master suite done at the flip house

Hello friends! I realize it has been absolutely forever since I’ve posted here. I just returned from two months of training related to my job with the National Guard and have now jumped right back into finishing the flip house.

This crazy mama has been burning the candle at both ends for awhile working on the last 10 percent of the flip. I’m hoping to get done by the middle of this month, and then I can focus on sharing more with you about this insane awesome exhausting growth experience. 😉

In the meantime, today I wanted to show you the brand new master suite at the flip that is done!

Here’s a before of the space, which previously served as an attic.

Master-Suite-before Master-suite-before-2 I had a lot of space to work with, but also a lot of challenges. I hired a wonderful contracting crew to do the build, which was the best decision ever! I was blessed to find a man at my church that came highly recommended, and he brought in his own folks to help. I won’t share names because I’m not sure they would want the publicity (plus I’m a little stingy with my contractors). 😉 But they did an absolutely amazing job.

I also hired a drywall finisher for this space. He did a great job as well. After this project, I definitely have a new respect for the professionals that do this work.

Here I am painting the space after the drywall was finished. My clothes are a good indicator that I am not a professional painter by any means.

And now, for the finished bedroom space …

The master closet is fully lit with two lights and offers a lot of room. (I took the closet doors off temporarily to spray paint them white.)

I had beautiful neutral carpet installed throughout the bedroom.

I used my favorite white Zinsser® Ceiling Paint for the ceilings and a slightly darker grayish white called Powdered Sugar for the walls. As always, I would recommend using an eggshell finish from Valspar or Sherwin Williams for the walls. These are my favorite brands for producing a smooth, even finish. The trim got an slightly off-white, semi-gloss paint.

I had a pocket door installed at the master bathroom entrance to avoid any obtrusive doors from swinging into the hallway or bath spaces.

I love the versatility of the nook area. It could be used as an office or reading space, or it would also offer great separation if multiple kids are sharing this room. I particularly like the raised ceiling and recessed lighting.

And now, for the master bathroom …

This is probably my most favorite room in this home. I feel like the space was used perfectly. I particularly love the counter space.

Many of you said one of the things you’d like to see incorporated into this home was built-in shelves. So I had these installed in the master bathroom. They make a great spot for keeping linens, etc.

For the flooring, I installed luxury vinyl tile from Lowe’s, which I grouted. This is my new favorite flooring product, by the way. I’ll be installing this same tile in my own kitchen this summer.

So what do you think of the new master suite? I believe this will make a beautiful, comfortable space for a family very soon. I am hoping they are as pleased with it as I am!
