Once upon a time, I was pregnant with a little baby. The Hubs and I didn’t find out the gender until the day of Baby K’s arrival, so we decorated a neutral-themed nursery with adorable little lambs.
It was a simple and sweet little nursery. It really was…
Out popped Henry and Boom! Blue was the accent color.
Before we knew it, we had another baby – a girl. The nursery stayed the same (except for Henry’s photos and such) since we once again didn’t find out the gender. Let’s just say, the cute-blue accent-lamb nursery-fairytale ended. The overall neutral-themed nursery just wasn’t cutting it anymore. It, instead, had become more of a spew of little lambs/blues/pinks/hand-me-downs – ultimately it became a room with no direction.
It was time for something new.
After all, how much longer do I have before I can’t make these sort of design choices? Miss. Eliza is already very adamant on wearing a dress every.single.day., I’m sure her “design” choices are right around the corner.
*help me* 😉
I gave my kiddos a couple of paint brushes and told them to take care of it…
Kidding, of course…well, sort of…
Okay, okay. They could only reach so high. I suppose it was up to me to get the job done andadd those vibrant details (AKA super girly floral wallpaper).
Enter: Marie at 1 a.m. The most reasonable time to work on a home project is while the kids are sleeping. AmIRight?! Who’s with me?!!
I kid you not that my neighbor arrived home from his third shift job and saw me working on this space from the outside. I heard him cough at one point, perhaps in an attempt to get my attention so that he could ask me what the heck I was doing. Ooooor….he just had to cough and I’m just paranoid.
Probably the latter.
<Insert blurry phone picture of #organizedchaos>
I finally finished the job at 2 a.m. Aaaaaand the kids promptly woke up at 7:30 a.m.
Eliza loved it and it made my heart oh-so-very-happy to see her “Oooohing” and “Aaaahing” over her new big girl bedroom walls. 🙂
I’m absolutely in love with this space. It gives me tingles every time I walk by it.
Oh and I just noticed that the mirror is nice and grimy. I believe Eliza was “cleaning” the mirror for me when I took this picture. Oh well, that’s real life for ya’, folks!
I can’t wait to show you what I’m working on next. Hint: It involves chalk paint…lots of chalk paint…
First off, let me start by asking how your Daylight Savings is going? I’m a tad out of sorts over here! Nothing a little coffee can’t fix! AmIRight?! If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that the guest bathroom is almost finished. I shared a little sneak peek over there, but here’s another…
Today I wanted to share an incredibly simple and cheap project that I’ve been meaning to do for quite some time – A Rubber Band Spray Painted Vase. Golf claps, please. I’m sure you’ve seen this project on Pinterest – possibly here, here or even here. All you need is a glass vase, some rubber bands and a…
Hey guys! I thought I’d stop by real quick to show you a few before-and-after pictures of the guest bathroom. Here ya’ go! For not having a window in or near the space, it sure does feel a lot brighter, doesn’t it?! Are you working on any last minute winter projects? Do tell. 🙂…
Happy Monday! I thought I’d swing by this bloggity blog of mine to share with you some of the inspiration I found for Eliza’s big girl bedroom makeover. As some of you may know (via IG), I wallpapered Miss. Eliza’s bedroom last week. EEK! However, I have yet to add the finishing touches. Let’s…
Pointer Sisters, anyone? Not to be confused with Jessie’s breakdown from Saved by the Bell! Yup, those nine words just about sum up my overwhelming enthusiasm and eagerness to finish up the basement guest bathroom. I thought I’d share a couple of terrible phone pictures so that you can see what I’m talking about….
If you follow me on Instagram then you may remember a picture from a couple months ago of me re-painting our dining room chairs. Well, I’m finally kinda-sorta done with them. I have yet to apply a coat of polyurethane. However, I just couldn’t wait another minute to share these chairs with all of you. …
