Master bedroom update

I hope all my Canadian readers had a great long weekend! We couldn't have asked for better weather here (any Maritimer will tell you that four solid days of sunshine and hot weather in May is a pretty special treat) and we took full advantage, getting in some yard work (we even picked up a couple of new shrubs yesterday), plenty of walks with the dog, and a daily dose of ice cream (my one, constant pregnancy craving so far).

Unfortunately we had to spend some time indoors; on Sunday we installed baseboard and quarter round in our master bedroom and yesterday I painted the new trim and we put our bedroom back together. Before I get to the progress pics, let's take a moment to remember what the room looked like when we first moved in:

Believe it or not, the camera is being overly kind here - this room was all textured walls, beaten up trim and gross carpet. We painstakingly removed the texture, painted the walls, windows, trim and ceiling, refurbished the closet doors (which we found in the garage) with paint and new glass knobs, bought a new, solid pine door that we stained and fitted with an ORB doorknob, ripped up the carpet and installed new hardwood, and installed new baseboard and plinth blocks (check out the bottoms of the door frames).

There are still lots of decorating changes I'd like to make - more art on the walls, bringing in new/different accessories, new bedding, maybe adding a headboard? - but let's get to the photos shall we?
