As most of you know, we moved into our first home just a few short months back, and we have been incredibly busy with remodeling just about every room from top to bottom. All of this being done, I might add, with a newborn in tow. (Yes, I had to add this, as I think it gives us some well deserved extra kudos.)
We started our remodel projects with our master bedroom, so I thought that a fitting place to share with you all first. The nice thing about this room was that while the whole room needed to be gutted to start out the project, it really required very little investment aside from our time as we were already quite happy with the decor we utilized in our apartment bedroom.
Here is how she looked upon our arrival.
Take a moment to take it all in.
Yes, that is wallpaper on our closet door. I bet you hadn’t thought of that one had you. Don’t all go running out at once to pick our your favorite pattern.
Alright, so you get the point…needless to say, not quite our style. The carpet. The shudders. The seashells. It all had to go.
First things first, we ripped up all the carpet. Wood floors and all their creaking and imperfections are hands down the only way to do it for me. And we just so happened to luck out with beautiful and original ones throughout our home just screaming to be unveiled.
After that, we spent a weekend ripping down, 3, yes let me spell it out, t-h-r-e-e layers of wallpaper all the way down to the drywall. A project, I will admit, I would not wish on anyone. Because once the paper’s off, the amount of paint and primer needed to cover the wall again is incredible (and that’s not in the good sense of the word).
Finally, it was time to decorate (aka my domain). And with that, I present to you all our newly designed master “suite”. Welcome.
I know that co-sleeper is quite the interior decorator’s dream. In the spirit of being real – I mentioned we have a newborn, right?
And there you have it. Our revamped slumber pad.
