I spent 9 hours on Monday taping, painting and doing all of the finishing work on my soon-to-be dressing room. After I cleaned up my painting mess, moved the dresser in and mopped the floor I felt satisfied with the changes and was excited to start moving the bigger pieces over in the morning.
YOU WONT BELIEVE THIS: 15 minutes after finishing the room, the bathroom sprung a leak in the bathtub (conveniently located right above the new dressing room) and destroyed over 1/2 of the ceiling and flooded the new dressing room. Seriously, 15 minutes later. What are the odds? So now I'm in the middle of two dressing rooms as I wait for the repairs (thanks to Mr. C and his crafty home skills) to be finished. The ceiling is back up - so now we just have to add texture and repaint.
With that as a backdrop story - please excuse the mess in my upcoming photos.

I'm hoping the dressing room will be finished soon. My industrial racks showed up today - so it's getting closer.
