Our master bedroom makeover at Flip 3 was an important project that I wanted to tackle before the birth of our daughter, Evelyn. We finished the floors with only a few days to spare before little Evie Mae arrived! Here is what we updated in our master bedroom:
Master Bedroom Punch List
- New floors
- Paint walls
- New dresser
- Replace ceiling fan
- Install white blinds
- New door
Master Bedroom Before
The master bedroom before was definitely livable, but we really wanted to add our personality to it.
Since moving into this home 4 months earlier, we had added a a full guest suite in our basement – including a bathroom and bedroom. Upstairs, we completely reconfigured the guest bathroom, master bathroom and closet and the aftermath of that renovation was quite apparent in the our bedroom. It was clear that we needed to put some work into our master bedroom to create a relaxing retreat for a soon to be momma of 2.
For the floors we decided to go with Pergo Outlast Auburn Scraped Oak laminate from Home Depot and also used them for the installation. To save on cost we decided to do the floor demolition ourselves (a.k.a. Chris, Thomas and our friends) which took about three days.
The installation also took 3 days so we were out of our house for almost a week! Not cool for a nesting momma. It was totally worth it though to check it off of our home renovation list. We had also torn up our kitchen to install the same flooring which meant we were eating out the entire week. By the end of the week we were getting a little stir crazy and ready to be back in the house.
But anywho, back to the floors. Don’t they look beautiful in our master bedroom?!
Master Bedroom After
And these two snuggle bugs loved the updates as well. The only downside to the floors is the “click, click, click” of the pups nails on the floor. We may need to add a rug at some point.
