Playroom Garage

Slowly, I have been working on home projects to class up our new house. Eventually we will get to where I want it to be, but what fun is life without some home projects? At least for us; we love doing home projects. I am slowly working on upgrading our playroom space to something way cool for the boys. It is a challenge with all the cabinets in there now but is actually nice for toy storage. Only problem is I constantly have boys standing on top of the counter. Not sure what to do about that, but I am brainstorming ideas and hopefully I can come up some something cool. Meanwhile we had this random empty under the counter space (maybe it used to be a desk type area) that the boys started parking their cars and trucks in. It made a pretty cool garage but mostly turned into a pile of trucks.

First I went to Target (woo whoo!) and Hobby Lobby for a couple supplies… a shower curtain rod and some garage door looking fabric and matching thread. Once I was ready to start, I busted out the dusty sewing machine. *Side note: I used to love to sew things and made alot of cute clothes actually but deciding to purse a degree in Fashion Design really killed my passion for anything related to that.* I don’t have a studio space right now for my painting or projects so I have been setting up on the random sink and cabinet area in the playroom basement area. Like I said before, its not perfect but I am working on it all… over time.ย 20180119_171828-220180119_170025-2Gotta love my little helpers always.ย 20180119_210315-2^Curtain rod detail.^20180119_174526-220180119_174537-2Once the curtain was hung up, it turned out to be a pretty cool place to hide and peek out of. ๐Ÿ™‚20180119_210224-220180119_210232-2The next step was to paint it to look more like a garage door and less like a grey curtain. I drew a chalk outline of what I wanted to pain then I mixed up a color with acrylic paint I already had and went to town on it.ย 20180123_164208-2.jpg20180123_164722-220180123_172205-2A quick paper towel and water on the chalk after the paint dries takes care of the chalk lines really quick.ย 20180124_102737-2I had the hubby add a shelf in for more levels of vehicle storage in the garage.ย 20180127_135635-2IMG_9763IMG_9756IMG_9754

Then we just play!ย IMG_9743IMG_9744Jake was the photographer remote button pusher. He was really into it… we had a bit of a fit when I told him we had to put up mom’s camera equipment because it wasn’t a toy.ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ IMG_9728IMG_9731IMG_9734IMG_9738IMG_9740IMG_9741IMG_9749Hope you all have an wonderful weekend and if you need any Super Bowl party inspiration check out myย Super Bowl Sunday!ย post from last year and myย Super Bowl Sunday!ย post from the year before that. Pretty much have all the same decor so I am sticking with it!

Until next week, XOXO.

Bathroom Prints

I have recently been working on redecorating and redoing hardware in a few of the rooms in our house. One of my bathroom redo project was taking and putting some bath time pictures of the boys in their bathroom. I edited them in black and white and added a black matte with a white frame. I love how it looks. Such a cute idea for the bathroom.IMG_8260IMG_8278

2017-03-15 17.53.59We will be repainting the bathroom walls which is why I have not hung the photographs up yet.

I have been decorating with other cute ideas as well. I am working on these shark paintings.2017-03-30 13.43.38Working with illustration and paint pens for this project. I am using watercolor paper medium as well. I am planning on doing some sort of matte and frame with them but I have to finish the paintings before I can figure out what will look the best with each one.

I was originally inspired for my boy’s bathroom concept by this Shark Bathroom Rugย from Pottery Barn Kids. It was on back order for quite a while and I just got it today and it is just too cute!! I can’t wait to get the walls and decor complete and finally see my boys bathroom vision come to life.

All projects are slowly coming together. Until next week, XOXO
