There is a different mindset when it comes to building a room from scratch, as opposed to painting, papering, or if you’re particularly ambitious—tearing down a wall or two—in an existing room. I most often describe this difference as “there is a lot of drywall dust clogging up my brain” but in reality I just haven’t thought far enough ahead about the cool features you can include in a room when you’re building from the ground up. I mean, you know you’d have a secret door in your bedroom if you thought of it, am I wrong?
This, my friends, is a blank slate. It's also a slightly fuzzy picture (sorry about that) of a very large unfinished window in a room I would one day like to sleep in instead of living in a garage. Ah, wishful thinking. But daydreaming aside, something had to be done with this thing and after a week of painting I was so ready to break out the power tools.
