The upstairs front bedroom is at the top of our renovation list. The walls are painted faux wood panelling and are holding up crumbling plaster walls. The flooring is carpet squares over orange tile floor. There is water staining on the ceiling (from our leaky roof). There is one small closet that is over the stairs.
We plan on removing all the panelling, plaster, and lathe then reinsulate the walls, rewire, install a vapor barrier and then drywall. The ceiling we are going to cover with some type of bead board. (We are sorry that there will be no more starry nights. All the plastic glow in the darki stars underneath the plaster will be covered up. We're still not sure how they glow through.) We are also going to build a closet next to the chimney.
