Adding Privacy to the Master Bedroom: The Before

I couldn't host the UFO challenge and not be willing to join the fun! 
(If you are procrastinating on a project you are THIS.CLOSE to finishing check out the challenge and find the motivation to finish!)

 My unfinished DIY project is going to be installing a door (aka "endower of mommy privacy") between my master bedroom and my sewing room.
When we bought the house our master bedroom didn't actually have a door.  Well, if you consider the sewing room as an extension of bedroom, then I suppose technically you could lock someone out, but it was far from a private oasis.

These are the only photos I have of the master bedroom doorway from move in day. This is looking out from the bedroom and into the sewing room:

You can see that the other side of the "walk through" sewing room does acutally have a door, but it only blocks the noise from the stairwell and other bedrooms.
There is a 'window' in the wall that is open to the downstairs. The master bedroom doorway is on the far right:
So, even with the doors to the sewing room closed this is what you actually end up with:
 Earlier this year, I worked hard on updating the sewing room and installed the large expedit shelving unit for my fabric storage:
The room is much more usable now, but I knew adding a double door to that non-standard opening was a job best left to the pros.  (Especially considering the install charge was a mere $300.)

However, I am still considering it a DIY project, because I am only having the pre-hung doors themselves installed.  I need to trim them out, paint them and install the hardware.  

Can I get it done in time for the party?  Come back and find out!

  1. A craft room off of the master!?! How awesome is that? Although, I'm sure you will definitely appreciate your new found privacy after the completion of your project!

  2. ok first, I'm jealous you have a sewing room! LOVE LOVE LOVE. And privacy bwahaha...we put a lock on our master..which was great until the kids learned to pick it :P

  3. Can I have your sewing craft room please!! I say this as tonight I hauled my sewing machine downstairs to the kitchen to sew, then ran back upstairs to iron what I was sewing, then back down to sew.

    Seriously. It was HARD.

    AWESOME room. Can't wait to see it done!!!

  4. I love how the kids are asking "privacy..what's that?" - that is totallly the truth! FUNNY!
    I love that shelf for fabric. I wish I had that. And your craft room is just amazing! Lucky girl! Thanks for linking up that week!

  5. I love it! My four year old is constantly following me in the bathroom asking if I want some pirate-cy. I always say ahoy matey and she looks at me like I'm nuts! Love the sewing room!

    Take care,
