Next stop on our house tour is the rest of the upstairs! Just like our bedroom that you saw yesterday, the other rooms upstairs have had a few improvements done, but still have a ways to go.

The Guest Bedroom

This is probably one of the more embarrassing parts of the house because we haven’t really touched it since we moved in. Right now it houses my old bed (the one I used my first 5 years in Cancun), my old plastic dresser and our broken ironing board.

We use the bed for drying damp clothes and storing stuff we have no good place for.

We recently brought down my old bedsheets/comforter from the US, but I'm scared to put it on the guest bed because I dunno what the humidity will do to it!

Yet another amazing closet! I cleaned most of it out last month because it was filled with papers, but it still holds my mini-library , my wedding dress and my "winter clothes" (which in Cancun means light jackets)

 

Jorge’s Bathroom

The upstairs bathroom mainly belongs to Jorge. Ever since I discovered that the downstairs bathroom has amazing water pressure, I have taken it over as my own. You’ll see that later this week!

A few months ago, we had our friend Leo (who also made our headboard) install some shelves to clean the bathroom up a bit.

The shower is pretty big! I still can't wait for the day when I have a bathroom with a counter, though. Dare to dream...

Here are the shelves Leo made. We'd been waiting so long to have a place to put our soap dish / toothbrush holder set that we got as a wedding present.

 

Upstairs Landing

The upstairs hall is surprisingly bright thanks to a small skylight. We also have a linen closet. A LINEN CLOSET! Like I mentioned yesterday, it’s so hard to find a rental house with closets in Cancun, and we have several really big ones. We really lucked out.

Look at the size of that linen closet!

Skylight! Maybe someday we'll get a light fixture to cover that bare bulb... but probably not.
