House Tour Part 2

Sorry it's taken a bit to get the second part of the house tour up, we've been working away on our back room renovation all weekend. Last Wednesday we took a look at the living room and kitchen and discussed the changes that have happened over the years to those two rooms. Today we're going to take a look at the bathroom and master bedroom. So to start things off:
This is our little bathroom. It's the only one in the house, and it's not very big, but it is quite functional, especially with a few alterations on our part.
Those two cabinets in the corner were added by us shortly after our wedding when I moved in and we obviously needed to do something about storage in here. The cabinets were from Bed, Bath & Beyond and we couldn't be happier with them. The lower one stores all our towels, toilet paper and the hair dryer, straightener, and curling iron, along with my make up. Yeah, it's a pretty hard working little cabinet. The top cabinet holds Jake's beard trimmer, some of my hair products and medicines and bandages. Those two cabinets are definitely life savers in our tiny bathroom because they take up so little space, but can hold quite a bit of stuff.
I think this is my favorite feature in our bathroom. Those towels were a wedding gift from some wonderfully thoughtful friends and that picture is one I took when I went to Taiwan in high school.
Two more things to point out in the bathroom before we move on to the bedroom. First is that our sink is a pedestal and that allows for more room in our dinky bathroom, so if you ever encounter a small bathroom I would definitely say that a pedestal is the way to go. Lastly, I want to point out our lovely floor. You may not think it's that lovely, but if you had seen the hideous old yellow laminate that was in there before you would think it looked like a completely new bathroom.

Now on to the master bedroom. Now let me dispel any grand ideas about a sprawling and spacious master bedroom that you may have right now. Our bedroom is the "master" simply because it is the bigger bedroom in the house, but that is where the "master" ends. There is no master bath connected to it, no grand closet, in fact, the closet is shared between the two bedrooms and set up more like a small hallway between the two rooms. So, now that we have the idea of  a "master suite" out of your head,
Here's the "master" bedroom in all it's glory. The bedroom measures about 10.5 x 11.5. 
The walls are coming across kind of pink in most of the pictures, the left hand side of this picture is probably the most accurate though, they are a nice camel tan color.
We plan to get new dressers some day, we just haven't gotten around to it yet. We'll probably use the longer dresser in the spare bedroom someday, but for now it's what we've got.

So that's it for the second part of the house tour. All that's left is the back room, which is currently in limbo, but we'll get up some before pictures for you soon, and the spare bedroom, which is currently storing stuff that we had to move up from the back room so that we could work back there.
