DIY – Master Bedroom Remodel

by 5 days
I have 8′ tall ceilings. I place the top board at 12″ below the ceilings and the second shelf at 40″ below that (just measure the length your shirts sit below the top shelf). For the long garments, I allowed for a 14″ tall cubbie above the garments which provides about 68″ for garments. Shelf supports are 3.5″ wide. I try to get as wide as boards as possible. These were about 11″. Using a table saw, i cut them based off the most narrow board. The top shelf is 1/8″ wider then the vertical supports and the lower horizontal shelf is 1/8″ less than the vertical. I think the offset looks better. I got closet rods and supports from Home Depot [] [] They are very very solid. The rods do not sag at all. You could probably do pull ups on these. As for the backer supports i predrill and countersink the screw holes to align with where the studs are. If there are no studs to screw into, i’ll use these drywall anchors. Also, I used stainless steel deck screws. [] ( (
All Done! Notice i did not put any lighting above where the bed lies.
Master bedroom needed some love. The room was awkwardly long and we desperately needed more closet space. Walled in the closet, scraped popcorn, replaced the crown moulding, swapped the Pergo laminate flooring for some carpet with nice padding, replaced the doors!

Wedding at Matorca, Bucerías Nayarit in México

Martoca Beach Garden is a beautiful secluded beach and garden, surrounded by amazing large palm trees. It is a great venue for a non-resort private Puerto Vallarta beach wedding and a fantastic scenery for a photographer like me.

A lot of souvenirs were created that day: from Emanuel’s tears to his father’s ones, or the strong hugs that Cara shared with her new family, a lot of feelings were expressed. It is said that men should not cry, but how nice it is to see a man mourn for love in his statement. Seeing that every word transcends someone is not an easy thing to witness, and taking photos of those tears made me feel like I wanted to part aside and respect the emotion in a so intimate moment. But as a photographer, I had to shut down my emotions, let them get to me and have them get me closer to the core of the person I had to photograph.

The climate conditions were almost perfect as it usually is in November in Banderas Bay and we had the chance to have a cloudless evening that allowed me to play with the reflections on the pool during sunset. Another detail that will let me a special memory is Cara’s twin. It is not common to have a wedding with twins, and I must confess it is a lot of fun. It was a real pleasure to work for Cara & Emmanuel, an exceptional and very loving couple. Our best wishes at the start of their life together!
