Transforming the Bedroom

The master bedroom is still a work in progress but oh, has it come a long way already. Our house was built in 1957 and the room was originally used as a place for extra storage. The previous owners turned it into their master bedroom but didn’t update it at all! So the floor was old, vinyl tile and the walls left much to be desired.

I knew I wanted a wood floor in the bedroom, in keeping with the flow of the rest of the house, plus I just prefer the aesthetic of wood over carpet. So I called in The Flooring Girl, who came highly recommended and the company did a great job! Of course, the transformation wasn’t a quick one (see – camping out in the spare bedroom for a month!) A sub-floor, leveling mix had to go down over the tiles since the flooring was so uneven, which then had to dry over a period of time. We waited a bit after that for the wood flooring to come in and then it had to get acclimated to the natural humidity of the room.

But we now have a beautiful new floor (Armstrong Performance Plus Oak in Pine Cone) and a fresh coat of paint on the walls (Valspar Sea Salt Blue). Now we just need to move the furniture back in or I’m going to need a new bag of marshmallows for my extended camping trip!!  😉
