After about two and a half years of living here I’ve had it with this teal rug. Remember that line from The Wedding Planner when Jennifer Lopez said “teal is the color of gangrene”? Yeah, I thought of that line pretty much every time I went into this room… here is the room on the day we moved in:
And how it looked on Friday:
One of my goals for this past weekend was to take out the carpet and paint the floor around it.
When we moved into the house the the entire room’s floor was this red-ish / purple-ish color. Here it is with the rug removed and just the perimeter painted.
Here we go… our new and improved guest room! See that rug? It was a $20 Craigslist score from the same place I got our living room rug.
I was running out of paint so I didn’t paint under the bed, but I don’t care too much about it because I want to either make or buy a bedskirt and because we plan on installing hardwood floors throughout the upstairs.
Here is a little bit of a zoom in on the rug. It is the West Elm Jute Boucle rug in Flax.
This room needs tons of extra work… like I said, we are putting in hardwood floors and we need to replace the windows and the drywall. I’m always tweaking it and have a couple of other ideas you’ll probably see soon for artwork and a headboard.
Oh, and the teal rug, it’s now in the basement making the floor look a smidge less scary. 🙂
I’ve got a couple of photos from our Memorial Day weekend for you, the first of Drew and Meredith holding hands at the hospital on Sunday as we were coming back from the outdoor patio.
We were quizzing Drew on body parts… I think this was either his “I’m not sure” face or touching his tongue. 🙂
He definitely knows where his ear is!
If you didn’t get a chance to pop over here yesterday then make sure you check out this fun birthday party we went to!
