Well, we’ve been working hard in the few spare moments that I’ve had–between work, sick kids and the busyness of life, there hasn’t been much! We have managed to get a lot done, but still have more to do. Please forgive the photography, as I am more focused on showing the room than having perfect photos for this project. So this shot gives you a bit of perspective on what we’ve been working on…
To see what the progress we’ve made click here and here.
One of my first priorities, aside from getting organized, was to get a study area set up. I’ve had this little table sitting in the garage forever, so Emma chose a lime green and we fixed this puppy up nice and pretty! The chair we picked up at Ikea as well as the orange magnetic board. Love how this turned out!
A better shot of the magnetic board. We also spray painted the paper holder with our favorite blue spray paint. I am absolutely amazed with spray paint these days! In just a matter of minutes and a few bucks you can create something totally new…so fun!
Sharks teeth we’ve found–spray painted the black frame to match.
Knew knobs…yes, spray paint.
I picked these frames up at Pier one–they were white when I bought them but not anymore! One of our goals this week is to pick out special photos for these frames as well as some others. We are also going to be picking up a vanity that has been in storage– hence the words “vanity here.” We are thinking of painting it a nice bright orange.
Some hooks I’ve had hanging around the house–we opted for yellow spray paint this time–we wanted some where for here to be able to hang necklaces so they wouldn’t get all tangled up.
A few odds and ends I’ve picked up along the way….
Shiny piggy bank! We found this little fella at Old Navy!
Cute little frame…TJ Max
And these pretty sparkle boxes, TJ Max too! Can’t wait to figure out where all of these things will go.
I also found some pretty hangers at TJ Max–since her closet area is open I wanted it to look nice and pretty. These add a nice little touch.
So thats about it for now. Some of our future projects include:
A cute little white futon with some bright, colorful pillows from Ikea up against this wall. This will enable her to have a nice lounge area during day, and still give sleeping space.
Emma looooves this tshirt, but it’s just not fitting the growing girl any more, so we are trying to think of a way to incorporated it in here room….stay tuned!
And, yes, more organizing–lots more organizing.
And just cause I love it, another shot of her chalk board.
So that’s all for now. I will hopefully will be back with more to share in a week or two!
Take care! xx andrea
