A few weeks ago I shared our colorful fixed up back porch. Despite all the new furniture and new styling, I was still missing one seat. I wanted to seat 6 real-live adults out there, and perching on one of the ottomans didn’t seem like the best solution. Thank goodness for Remodelaholic and her 2×4 and More challenge… I had an excuse to BUILD SOMETHING!
Wanna see my bathroom?! How often do you get to see THOSE words pop up in your email?! Today’s your day, folks… I’m sharing how AMAZING a simple coat of paint made the kids’ bathroom look. I have other plans for the space, but changing the vanity alone makes the room look BRAND new! Or at least of this decade.
I am the worst.
When it comes to building things, I LOVE it. Roaming the wood aisle, sketching out my plans, getting all my pocket holes drilled… but I am crap when it comes to giving you all the plans! So I’m going to share Oliver’s new trundle bed, but you’ll have to wing it a little bit when it comes to making it. M’kay?
My sweet, sweet Eleanor. She is so many wonderful creative things, but… tidy, she is NOT. She developed her hoarding skills early on in life and as she gets older, that talent has remained. All to say, her desk area was getting scary. She’s actually pretty reasonable about throwing out her piles of artwork and projects, but still her old desk wasn’t cutting it. I brought in a $25 replacement from the ReStore and her desk area is SO much more organized as a result!
Sometimes I find things at the flea market that I didn’t know I needed. Exhibit A: this pair of stackable vinyl stools/ ottomans. I’m a sucker for good extra seating and bonus points if it doesn’t take up too much room. These slide right under the coffee table in our family room and are perfect for when the kids gather around to play games or build with their magnet tiles.
