I am finally able to show you some of the updates that we did to our master bedroom this summer. Like most projects that DH and I get into, they are not small. We love a good project. It all started with a dumpster being delivered to our driveway in June. This is what our home looked like for the summer.
I got a bee in my bonnet about replacing the carpet in our bedroom with hardwood because of this. I cannot stand buckling carpet. Bad. Yes, we could have had it stretched, but we also had a dog in this house for a very long time and he loved lounging in here. Needless to say, the carpet suffered.
DH wanted to pull the carpet himself to save on time and money. It is a messy job. Good thing we had a capable helper.
I should mention that at the same time we were installing wood floors, we were also refinishing our main level wood floors and building a patio. That’s how we roll. Here’s a look.
Here is the after of the master. We are so super happy. I do think you need an area rug for a bit of softness and I was thrilled to find this one. It’s light in color, but I love the lattice print. When choosing an area rug don’t get sucked into a pretty print in a magazine. They can look great in a magazine, but that does not mean you can live with it in real life. Go a few shades more subtle even if you think it’s a bit boring. You don’t want the rug stealing the show! You want it to all work together to create a calm space.
I am not going to show you a wide shot until the end of the week. So stay tuned. I’ll show you some wall decor, lighting and fantastic mirrored nightstands I chose.
