I LOVE this makeover. Not as much as I love Dawson Leery, but it was super easy and makes SUCH a difference so yeah… I love it a lot. I picked up a handful of statues from thrift stores and Facebook marketplace… anywhere I could find them for under $10. Here’s my secret weapon: Plutonium Spray Paint.
My kids have a few favorite toys: markers and crayons, rubber ducks and… our bin FILLED with little miniature plastic animals and figures. These Safari Toobs are favorites for any event and over the years we’ve acquired a LOT of mini alligators and cows and fairies and astronauts. So many themes. So many tiny plastic creatures to play with. So why not CRAFT with them?!
When we moved into the rental, most of our furniture worked great, but there was something about my DIY headboard that didn’t quite work in our master bedroom. I love working with Raymour and Flanigan so I immediately went to their site to see what kind of headboard options they had and… wouldn’t ya know, they had the PERFECT option.
One of the things I’ve found myself doing a lot in the last year is dreaming about our next forever house. What kind of details do I want. What type of architecture. I’m always a sucker for an older home with charm and nonexistent right angles, but more and more, I’m excited about the amenities and details of newer construction.
