Okay, so back a million years ago (Okay, in October 2012), I promised a bedroom makeover and showed you all our terrible bedroom and my gray and yellow bedroom moodboard plan. Then half a million years ago (Okay, in December 2012), I showed you one step of the makeover, my nightstand transformation. And now, today, I'm finally back with all the beautiful pictures and full details of my bedroom makeover! The bed made such a big difference to me. It's the first real bed we've ever owned. … [Read more...]
Okay, it's been a long time since I first showed you this mood board for our bedroom. But the gray and yellow bedroom that Phil promised me for my birthday is now done. Or close enough that I'm calling it done. So I'm back today to share how I turned two dark, gloomy nightstands from the Salvation Army into light, cheery, fun nightstands for our bedroom.

Birthday Bedroom Bonanza!
Today, I present the "before" photos of our bedroom. Hang in there, because it's gonna look rough, but there's a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.

Our New Home: Total Before
Finally, some pictures of our new house. Here's the layout. I love the wood floors throughout. That was super important because both Phil and I HATE carpet. The kitchen is linoleum and the bathroom is tile. Everything else is wood. When you enter the house the coat closet is in front of you, the garage to your right, and you are looking into the dining room (but not from this angle). The dining room is next to the kitchen, which is nice because in our Nokomis house, we couldn't quite figure out … [Read more...]
I'm finally ready for the nursery reveal! Here's the full tour of Jaye's nursery. The main color scheme is pink and orange. It's based around and inspired by the Noah's Ark artwork on the walls. This is the view from the door. We've got the futon mattress on the floor for practical purposes. It's one of our favorite places to lay and play and roll around. Most evenings when Phil comes home from work you'll find our whole family in here. We moved the frame out so that if Jaye rolls off … [Read more...]
