New look for my master bedroom and a Rug Pad USA review and giveaway!

I drooled over this rug for MONTHS before I finally decided to spoil myself by buying it! I lived with it without a rug pad for several weeks, putting off the purchase. But then Rug Pad USA contacted me and asked if I would like to do a review of one of their rug pads and it was perfect timing! (Thanks to everyone who participated the giveaway is now over!) With a new rug, two “new” lamps and a new comforter it was WAY beyond time to share with you my newest refresh of my master bedroom!

A brand new rug, a brand new comforter, two new lamps and a RugPadUSA Giveaway! Giving my master a much needed face lift after a divorce and a rug giveaway from Rug Pad USA. Two thrift store lamps and a refresh in a Farmhouse master bedroom.

As most of you know I got divorced recently so one of the first places I “took back” was my master. I brought up my black rocker that I transformed last year and then it dawned on me that I really needed to figure out a better lamp situation. A trip to the thrift store and I had my answer! (How I transformed them is coming up next week!)

With all of the black already going on with my furniture it seemed time to lighten the room up with a new comforter. Out with the old and in with the new! I took my old black comforter to my local thrift store (it wasn’t that I didn’t love it it just held too many bad memories for me.) I added that pretty gray comforter to my wishlist and my mom gave it to me for my birthday. “Thanks, Mom!”

The new rug was so rolled up when I got it I finally had to steam it to help get the kinks out but it still slid around even with the rocker sitting on one corner. So, I chose the RugPro rug pad from Rug Pad USA because it was specific for slick hardwood floors like mine. It works amazing! And it added some MUCH needed cushion to the rug too and it also helped the rug flatten out. (Remember to enter their giveaway at the end of this post, you could win one for FREE!)

Rug Pad USA makes all of their pads in the USA and they offer some really impressive eco-friendly options. As you guys know I’m a real natural gal, I make all of my own cleaning products because I’m always working to keep chemicals OUT of my home so when I read about their options I got really excited!

I spread my clothes out into my extra closet and dresser, cleaned the room from top to bottom, bought myself some new sheets, and, truly, I felt like I had a whole new bedroom. (I read somewhere online about how awesome white sheets are and, ya know what? They really do make me feel like I’m in a hotel suite!)

By some sort of miracle I have still managed to keep all of my plants alive in the hanging flower boxes I built last year and they’ve all gotten so big. I’m going to be adding even more plants with the addition of a few in my bathroom too. With how long our northern MN winters are I can tell you that they really do help with the winter blues.

Thanks so much for everyone who participated in the giveaway!

    Hi Tarah…. Nice rug, pretty colours, but the star is the comforter from your Mum! That is so cool! I love grey – the back wall in both my bedrooms is painted grey, and my bedlinens have grey somewhere in them. That bed looks much better now (sorry, not a fan of black bedlinen!) and Yay for the white sheets! You must feel so great having got that room the way you want it – and of course I wish you very sweet dreams in it. x

    New rug looks great and there is nothing better than padding to keep things comfy. I also love your new comforter.

    Wow I love your bedroom first of all. I am about to move to an apartment for a year that has all hard wood floors. Where I live now it is all carpet. I would love to win a mat! It looks like a good one! So glad to find this post at bloggers pit stop!
