I don’t know if you caught my excitement in that title… but I’m so excited about this!! You see… since we have moved into this farmhouse of ours, one of the big things that has been bothering me is the carpet! I’m not hating on carpet at all, it’s great. Carpet is cozy & can be great in many homes & rooms. For us? It’s just not happening in this farmhouse. We are too messy for carpet… and all of these muddy feet & animals call for a floor that isn’t soft and absorbent. We aren’t classy enough for carpet! haha. We have been ripping it up out of every room & now we have moved on to the upstairs….
I NEVER share our upstairs with you guys.. like, ever. & that’s because we have never touched it. That all changed on a whim this week when we finally decided to hire out for help removing the carpet in our upstairs… it was the best decision ever! We hired a team to come in and remove all the carpet upstairs in every room [yes, it was also in two bathrooms] & then lay down the 10″ planks like we did downstairs. So in our bedroom, the guest bedroom, & the hallways upstairs there will be the 10″ pine planks. The bathrooms will come later… but for now they will just be the sub floor.. I mean, it’s not worse than carpet at least.
The cool part? They also removed the carpet from the stairs! That means we get to do something fun with them as well! It’s been so long since we have done any major renovations to our farmhouse & I’m so ready to start back up again!! I just wanted to pop on here today to talk about this, but I’ll be back asap with a bigger flooring update… oh, & check out that wallpaper! haha that will be going away very soon as well! So, here is the beginning of the upstairs renovations I guess. That feels crazy to say! I hope you guys are as excited as me.. well, that’s not possible, but I promise this will be a fun makeover… thank you so much for stopping by the blog today & everyday to see what we are up to! xx
