Hello there friends!
I'm so excited to be able to show you our new flooring
in our master bedroom!!!
In case you didn't read my last post....
I got some fir planks (tongue & groove)
off my fav craigslist....F r E e!
about 700ish ft2
what to do
what to do
I was actually looking for paneling.....
so I could do a bedroom like this
but when I found the paneling
and looked at the backside....
the wheels started turning....& I was like "hey....look at this....hmmmmm....
looks like a possible flooring solution for our upstairs......"
I'm still really liking the paneling idea because
I love this bedroom, but with
Sadie pooch being...you know....a little "pee-body"
our flooring became more of a priority you might say.....
so out with the
revolting old carpet
not without a little happy dance from my
raggamuffins girls!! :o)
(with the headless papa in the background) hee hee
the sweet neighbor boy "TJ" was down in a heartbeat
to help rip up carpet as soon as Madi posted our plan on facebook!
me thinks "TJ" has a little crush on my Madi.......
Too young for all that but he's a sweet kid & lots of fun ....
here's my sweet "are we really doing another project honey..." husband
so diligently finishing up sanding....sanding....sanding...sanding....
so we can move back in....
poor guy suffered from temporary hearing issues from that dumb machine.....it came back after a couple weeks though...
I'm kidding!!! After only a couple days!!
I know..not funny...
just a little...not really...
most of you probably saw this raw, unfinished floor picture
I really liked the pale color of the wood
it darkened up a bit w/ the clear finish we put on.
that's ok...now it matches the flooring downstairs pretty well....and we have enough wood to do 3
bedrooms and the hallway (our bedroom & hallway are done...need to do 2 more) a little later..... ;-0
so here's another shot of the finished floor.....
so now the decorating begins....
only because we are all friends here, I'll show you what I'm starting with
very boring..................not much you might say.............for some reason
our bedroom has always been last on the list to get attention.....
white walls which I freshened up until I can figure out what I want to do...
a black & white toile lamp
a white wicker nightstand
a big fat bed
a window over the bed...I'm not planning on using it
at least not in it's current color
That's it so far!!!
I do have a VERY cute creamy painted antique dresser
I would love to use
do you all remember my rustic walls downstairs?
in case you don't.....here's what they look like
I'm thinking of doing a rustic plaster look similar to this above....
you may be thinking "what about the paneling???"
remember my decorating ADD? it's bad.
since I'm in a hurry.....well....I'm thinking plaster
and because I love this look
this is off Lilla Blanka's blog
her Christmas post
I love that wall! I know it's probably a bit more rustic
than I want but I love the feel.....
anyway.....so that's what I'll probably do on the walls
and as for bedding.....
I'm going to start looking!
I have a super cool antique wooden door that I'm thinking about using
for a headboard!
I want to do the whole frenchy nordic look so.....
I need to start scouting the thrift stores, Monticello and more
to find awesome accessories.
I'll keep you posted!
have an awesome weekend!
