Painted white planked floors

Friday, April 17, 2015

Something I have been considering for our home for awhile now is wide planked floors painted white.....swoon!
If you have been on my Instagram feed the past week you may have seen a little of what we have going on over here.

Our entire upstairs is carpeted and even though we invested in the "best" carpet the builder offered and upgraded the carpet pad, after only two years in this home, Im sad to say, it looks like crap! 
Not everywhere but definitely in the high traffic areas and it even has started to buckle. We even had it re-stretched but to no did it again. It stinks when you spend so much time working on your home and then you see something like that staring you smack in the face on the daily! 
What to do?
Well we didn't want anymore carpet, thats for sure! Because we didn't really have the money in the budget to completely rip out all of the upstairs carpeting, we have decided to start this next DIY small and see how it goes before tackling the entire upstairs all at once!
Along with the carpeting issue I had also been itching to change up our master bedroom. I know, I know, we just did this last year! Well, let me tell you something.....I don't like it. I know there are a lot of people out there that love it and have been super kind to give me all kinds of compliments on it but for me its just not working anymore. I need white! I need clean and bright and right now thats not the feeling I get when I am in there. I also believe that if you want to change something in your home and you can change it then you should! All the time, every time! 
If you missed it on IG then here is the little sneak peek of whats happening in the Master, its actually being worked on by the handiest husband ever, right now! 
I can already tell I'm going to love it. The simplicity of this picture is speaking to my soul and I'm in love! I can't wait to reveal the entire room in the next few weeks and share how we are doing these super amazing budget friendly floors!

  1. We had stained plank floor in our first house and loved them. Your bedroom will look great!
