I had a lot of magazine pages on my wall, all with adverts that I liked or stories I wanted to keep. It suited me in high school, but I've disliked it since being at uni. So down down down came all of the papers.
My biggest desire for the room was to have my carpet up, my old carpet isn't bad, but I LOVE wood floors and I wanted whatever was under the carpet to be exposed. Dad complied and started hacking away at it. It was a messy job as the underlay had gone funny, so we had to do it in sections, but it was worth it!
(I ate houmous and carrot)
With all the moving of the beds, sorting different items out, hoovering up the junk and carrying the carpet around, it was a very long day. I know my dad has a soft spot for ice cream, and headed to tesco for these bad boys -
We ate a fair bit of each tub and then swapped (our usual tactic) but after a few spoonfuls, agreed we preferred what we had initially, and swapped back!
So the finished floor looks like this
I know I could stain it, or paint it or whatever, but I love it as it is. I wanted a rustic, creaky, worn out room and those floorboards were just the start!
On a different note, it's my 500th post today. Can you believe that? 500?? Just crazy. How do I have enough to ramble on about for 500 posts. I almost feel like a fraud. and I feel like this should be far more of a celebration than I can give it... so here's a little compilation of my favourite dance celebration GIFs ha.
