Sound the fanfare, y’all!
No, wait. Back up. This isn’t the master bedroom reveal but almost! Eeep! Lookie what goodie showed up at our door!
A couple weeks ago, I asked you guys for help in choosing from a list of my favorite budget-friendly blue vintage rugs.
It was major debating in my brain, y’all. Why is choosing a rug so ding dang hard?
In the end, this one was the popular choice (and the one I found myself hoping everyone else would pick).
In the beginning of our master bedroom’s design plan, I had my sights set on a hand tufted wool rug, but as we neared the end of this room makeover, I knew I needed to squeeze in one that was more reasonable on the ol’ budget.
I’m SO happy with how soft and comfy this one is though, and actually, I think it’s even softer than many wool ones I’ve walked on. It’s on the thin side, but since our bedroom has carpet anyway, that wasn’t an issue for us.
I’ve gone back and forth for awhile about our headboard upholstery, and now that the rug is in here, I think I’ve landed on my decision with it.
I’m kind of not feeling the brown fabric, but now the question is am I going to take the risk at destroying our headboard to go all DIY-crazy on it? Hmm… Seriously, that’s not a “hmm” for dramatic effect. I’m honestly kind of stumped. Do I dare? (I probably already asked that question before. Oops.)
After we rolled out the rug, we realized the ticking stripe duvet cover just wasn’t working either. Major pattern competition going on. So I ended up changing it for a simple white duvet cover instead.
Oh, in case you were wondering, Lola is absolutely wild with excitement over the new floor decor. She’s jumping all over the place and dancing around. I can’t even get her to sit still anymore. 😉
Okay, well, she’s stoked about this rug in her mind. She told me herself.
Don’t you just see that furry face of hers saying, “When is my human going to put down the camera already?” (Please tell me you talk for your pets too. They’re just hairy people really.)
So now the final item on the list (besides that headboard that keeps me guessing) is our sliding barn doors. A couple things for that project had to be backordered, so it’s taking a bit longer than planned… wouldn’t be a room makeover without a hiccup, right?
Can you envision it though? How awesome will sliding doors look on that wall? I know I’ll be glad when the day comes that our shower door doesn’t slam into our bathroom door anymore. Every. single. morning.

Are you liking the rug we picked? It’s darker and has more of a pattern than I originally planned, but I’m pleasantly surprised how it’s turned out. This room has turned out less rustic and more modern than I anticipated actually. What do you think of the progress so far? We’re SO CLOSE!
