So you know when you tell your hubby an idea when he is really engulfed in something else and he doesn’t want anything to do with the idea (at the time). Yeah that happened here. So when Matt was building the desk, I brought up the idea of tearing up the carpet since we knew there was wood floors underneath, although we had no idea what condition they were in. Rightfully so, Matt said he wanted to “finish one thing”, so we continued on with the desk project, and once it was in, it did look awesome, but those floors were just calling my name. I brought it up again and Matt told me the order of operations was not ideal. I calmly reminded him that I ACTUALLY did bring it up earlier 🙂 Ohhh the small wins. Anywho, he was a good trooper of pulling up the carpet around the desk legs which revealed our awesome wood floors that were in really good condition!! We will have to re-level the desk, but until I pick a rug we have little tufts of carpet to level it from it’s “original floor” (order of operations fail). But just a few hours of pulling up tack strips, nails, staples, and cleaning, and ta-da! Pretty psyched how it turned out!
Oh, and if you noticed we have a curtain! First one in the house (which now makes me feel a little behind on the rest of the house!?) But it was a steal at Home Goods! While the color palette is pretty neutral right now I’m excited to start accessorizing and adding some color. Next up, the hunt for a rug!
Lewis is so excited too he had to photobomb.
