Naturally I forgot to take a 'Before' Picture, so this is our 'before, but after we primed and ripped up the carpet' picture.
Before all of this though, the room was a really beautiful blueish teal color. I really debated on not painting this room at all because I liked the color so much, but I had already fallen head-over-heals in love with the comforter from Pottery Barn and I couldn't compromise--- it had to be painted. I settled on 'Pediment' from Sherwin Williams for the master bedroom and really think it's fantastic. It actually might be my favorite color so far!
For a while after I painted it was our catch-all room and it looked like this:
Terrifying, right?! It was to me!
Once we got everything thrown away and out of the door it was much better and we started to lay the flooring down.
While we were laying the floors we were waiting for one run to work out perfectly. This was Chance's reaction when it finally did… It was very similar to Ron Paul's 'It's happening' .gif.
Swoon! It was beautiful! We got the new base molding and quarter round down. Eventually we'll be putting crown molding throughout the whole house, but this is where we needed to start.
I was and still am overly excited about my usb outlet!
I wanted a nice jute rug for our bedroom but didn't want to pay for the size I needed. I always check the house stuff at Target and I was so glad that I did this day because this rug was super discounted. I think it was $28 or something around that figure. I'm positive I didn't pay more than $35!
Chance went TDY and gave me permission to do some retail therapy at Pottery Barn for leaving me in the middle of this move (missing Mac's birth, going to OTS during our move from Japan, leaving for two weeks in the middle of a the only move we have ever had to do ourselves… You'd start believing he planned these things!) I was dying to get this bedding! While I was at the mall my mom called and said she wanted to buy it for us as a house-warming gift. Do I have the best mom or do I have the best mom?! Bonus: It was on sale! Double Bonus: I still got a military discount!
We have a cupola out in our front yard and a couple of the windows broke off. So I washed them and bleached them in the shower and hung them. These lamps are from IKEA, and had a black shade on them. I replaced the black shade for these white ones from Target and we're finally getting some use out of them again. We haven't hung these things since we were in Japan.
Chance and made us some side tables and did a great job on them. When we got them upstairs, though, we both really hated the way they looked so we went back to the drawing board. On our way to Lowe's we spotted an estate sale and went to check it out. When we got there they said everything was on sale, so we snagged these two side tables. Originally priced $65.00 each, we haggled them down to $50 for the pair!
And there's the master bedroom folks! Sorry for the grainy cellphone picture, I still need to get better with my DSLR that my dad gifted me!
