Blue closet doors with hooks in the boy’s bedroom

read

Well! Two boy’s bedroom posts in one week is a huge deal in these parts! Remember the buffalo check flag pillow post where I mentioned blue closet doors? This is where we started. The closet doors next to the bed were sadly yellowed with time. I don’t think I have ever repainted them since moving […]

Stencil A Unique Buffalo Checked Canadian Flag Pillow

read

Today was one of those days where I desired to do something, just not a lot. (I had a bike ride to partake in after all…) I mulled over weeding a flowerbed, but once I paced around my son’s room, I quickly changed gears. There is a blue love seat in his room we were debating on getting rid of. […]

Easy closet kit revamp in teen’s bedroom

read

This little closet project has been on the back burner for years. YEARS. In this day and age, the one bar / one shelf closet system ought to be banned. But, this is what we got when we purchased the house 10 years ago, and it was time to finally gut this thing, to get the most […]

A cleaning challenge, inspired by my boy’s minimalist bedroom

read

Happy New Year! And before you say, “Boy, your photography staging is slipping…” This post will not be pretty. But it will be real. When I returned home from my Christmas vacation, the first thing I noticed upon walking into my home was ‘dust’. I couldn’t see it, but I sure could smell it. Or […]

Let there be white! And black. Teen boy’s bedroom progress.

read

Work, work, work continues on the boy’s room. And I am making progress! Although it is going slow. There were so many undone things in this room that needed attention. And now I know why I didn’t take the time to do it before. Because I had never done some of this stuff before. Avoid […]

Well, what a difference a gallon of paint and a few hours makes! Here’s the very blue before I told you about in THIS post. Aaaaand, here’s the AFTER! As you can see, I was so excited about getting this completed, I snapped pics while the paint was still wet. But no matter… it covered […]

Firing up the boy’s bedroom once again

read

In my past few posts, I’ve sorda hinted that I’ve been doing a TON of purging and cleaning up, but little to show for it. In all honestly, I’ve started so many unfinished things, the weather has been dictating what I continue with next. When it’s nice, I’m cranking up the curb appeal with pruning, pressure […]

Cool, not cute! (the making of a boy’s teen room)

read

This week, my son and I will be working on a special feature wall in his teen bedroom remake. With him gone over the weekend, I decided to roll up my sleeveless summer sleeves and dig in DEEP, morphing his room from cute to cool. It’s quite a process, this age leap.  No box, drawer, […]

The little blue couch that changed… everything

read

So, remember the little blue couch I landed at the thrift last week? It needed to come inside the house. Sadly, I didn’t have room for it. What I did have in the way were big oversized furniture pieces that have been sitting in the hallway for MONTHS. Confession. I really REALLY hate asking for […]

Well that was totally unexpected! A trip to the thrift store yesterday landed this amazing love seat that is perfect for the boy’s bedroom makeover! This poor project got put on the back burner for so long. But with the new amazing addition to our little family, (Cody’s Big Brother, Ben), we discussed firing up […]
