What can I say about my master bedroom other than that it's a hot mess. My husband and I have been talking about redecorating it for 2 years now and it's not moved in a single direction. I'm getting antsy and I'm starting to get frustrated. I now know that what look I want and I've known for a while so I'm going to start doing things on my own and hopefully he'll get the clue I'm moving on without him.
One place that I don't want to spend a ton of money on but I know it'll be worth the most investment is the flooring. I knew when we were building this house that there were a few things that I wanted to spend the money to upgrade with the builder because I knew we could pretty much do the rest ourselves. One of those was flooring. I wish I spent more money on the padding and really upgrading to the finest of the finest.
We don't have terrible carpet but it's only been 8 years and we're already needing to upgrade the heavier traffic areas.
I just thought I had done enough research on my own but I didn't check with the experts and that's where I went wrong. I really should have taken the time to talk to more people and one of the experts I had a chance to talk to recently were some people at Carpet One. Right now is a great time to buy because they are having an awesome #DDIY sale (Don't Do It Yourself). You can check out some more options they are offering on the above link but some things I don't want to tackle, and that's flooring. I stopped by their store recently and they were able to give me a free estimate. I was so pleased with their customer service and the products they were able to offer to me. Another great service they offer is a free in home estimate. They'll come to your home and do the measurements and bring you all the samples so you won't even need to go into the store yourself.
I feel comfortable with a store like Carpet One because they are all individual owned and operated and my mom has had a window covering store for 20 years that is also a franchise business. They really stand behind everything and they can really get some great products and have good connections because of their name. The other great thing is that if you're not satisfied, they'll replace it for free!
Of the few things that I can do on my own, the things I know I can't do well is build large pieces of furniture. I leave that to the pros. That's why I purchased a bed, similar to the one in the picture. I surprised my husband with it, lol. How do you just buy something like that in secret? How can you just hide something like that?
Check out this YouTube channel full of #DDIY fun. I do hope that I can style my room as close to the board above and I'll keep you update on how that comes along.
