My Mommy Mantra:"You had your time, you had the power. You've yet to have your finest hour."
If I had all the time & money in the world.. my little girl would have a bay window in her own room, that overlooked a pink garden with birdbaths & a treehouse. My boy would have a boy-themed room with balls & toys and a big firetruck toy like the one his daddy drives at work. Someday...
For today, I have a Pinterest board for that! LOL! Can you relate?
There is one board I've built that is titled "Small spaces. Big Ideas". I've found amazing ways to maximize the small living quarters we have now (downsize is the new BMW right?) And the kids are so small right now, they know no difference.
Handign in my daughter/son's room is this picture below I found from Luca & Company- an LA based design business. Isabel fell in love with the pastel colours & of course, her favorite little birdies. It hangs securely above her bed- it's very lightweight, and it matches sheets we bought from Pottery Barn Kids (my go-to catalogue when I get bubble-bath time.) Thanks to Jayneoni Moore for introducing me to this kids line of decor. I'd say this piece says Springtime like nothing else!
Any DIY project has to be easy for me to do it. Got no time. Didn't get the "crafty gene". That is why I LOVE this simple window treatment below. (Did I tell you that I sold my sewing machine at our garage sale.. in the box?) So when I can get some help, I take it. I go to the Do-It-Herself classes at Home Depot- there is one within walking distance from my home. My mother in law is also AMAZING with dfinding Pinterest ideas, and litterally re-creating them in the dining room. She is my own personal Martha Stewart.
How cool is this? Kids love being creative. And chalkboards make it feel old-school & sentimental. The best things for me: simple design & affordablity too. You can pick up these chalkboards for pennies at yard sales. Make it a fun family outing & scavenger hunt! BTW if you have a stainless steel fridge & want to bring magnets in the kitchen to display your kids "art", check out what I found in a chatroom. Very cool! Why didn't we think of this? LOL...
