House Goal Number Ten- Complete!

You know how yesterday I reminded you of our house when it was in complete disarray back in January? Yeah….I didn’t even have a lick of energy to care either. Luckily, the living room gained some normalcy, but it wasn’t until the bedroom had the terribly awful blue carpet removed and replaced.

You see, this is what the room looked like before we moved in. It’s a good thing I can see past cosmetic problems and can actually find the potential.


I was beyond excited on the day Colby and one of his friends ripped out the carpet while I was laid up in the bed.


Sorry about the quality of the photo. Once again, little energy was to blame. However, you can already tell that the coat of paint on the wall mellowed out the room.

But then, the carpet man came. My mom checked on things as they installed it, and I signed the papers confirming everything was satisfactory. Thank you, Lowes, for making it so easy on the pregnant chick.

This is the state of the room as of now.


Right now, it’s serving as a guest bedroom/office. The carpet is as plush as I could have asked for and the perfect color. I highly recommend this carpet from Lowe’s. If you’re in the market for carpet, just let me know, and I will provide the info on it.

A big thank you goes out to the following people:

  • My in-laws for giving us the king-size bed. Our guests will be appreciative for sure.
  • My BIL and SIL for the cute little white table. I had no idea what or where I was going to put it, but it serves a great purpose as a printer stand.
  • A dear friend who created the art piece above the television. I have gotten many compliments on it =)

My main goals for this room are:

  • New bedding {quilt, bed skirt, shams, king size pillows, and throw pillows}
  • Curtains
  • Lamps to go on each side of the bed
  • Something functional over the desk
  • A headboard or something to take the place of that
  • New light fixture

It’s going to take years for me to accomplish all of my goals in this house, but I’m willing to be patient to get exactly what I want. After all, it’s all about making a house a home.
