Upstairs Update

This was a recent project I took on. I had tried painting this room several colors. I do love beige, but it tends to feel dated. I painted this room Gatherings from Magnolia Market and I love it. I also have this paint color in my dining room and hallway. It’s a lovely light neutral grey. We added a soft grey carpet from our local Menards. I am generally a fan of hardwoods, but this being a place where my kids will eventually play I wanted something warm on their feet. The flooring under the old carpet wasn’t in good condition either so carpet was the best option for us. We still have a little ways to go with this room. We had to bring up a couch for Wade’s “Tractor Room” and while doing this we had to rip down the railing. The railing was not safe the way it was before so its best it came down. We are still in the process of finding a new railing or building a wall for the staircase. We added floating shelves to the wall and a custom desk to give the room a finished look. I love the way this room turned out because it was so cold before. It was very uninviting. I feel the carpet and furnishings really cozy up the space! I will post updates when we find a solution to the railing. 🙂
