Living Room Tour

As promised, I'll be posting a room by room of the new place as it becomes semi presentable! This room is a far cry from finished, but it's coming along!

Living Room Grey Couch

The grey couch is originally from Macy's, but I scored it used for $450. Yes that's a lot (for me), but it was literally exactly the one I wanted in new condition!

Mid Century Fireplace

I've had that awesome tufted chair for a couple of years now. It was a $20 goodwill score! Still in love with the "Love" clock that I made!

The entertainment dresser is a temporary piece. I found it at goodwill with mirrors for $40. I sold the mirrors for $20. ;) I just found a dresser that's the style I want, so the tv area will be changing soon!

The area behind the couch will always be in flux. I'm trying to do more furniture refinishing for extra cash, and that's going to be the spot for my sell pieces!

My side table is definitely a kid's table, because REAL LIFE! :)

All that's left to do in here is paint, give the fireplace a makeover, and hang some more wall art!

DIY Kid's Handprint & Footprint LOVE Art! Valentine's Day Craft!

I'm very last minute getting this posted. I am not a planner. Let me explain. I made this art a few days ago, just because it was a cute idea and I wanted something on display of my girls sweet prints. Then last night, it dawns on me that today is Valentine's Day and this would be a great V Day post!

My favorite things about this project are that it's great for year round (which was my original plan!), and you can choose any colors to match your home decor! Win, win!

Grey Dresser with DIY Copper Pipe Drawer Pulls

I'm always the last one to the party. It's taken me 2 years to get on the copper bandwagon. I love it, but I'm not quite ready to copper all of my gold items! ha!

I'll save y'all a bunch of hullabaloo because I feel like most people only look at the pictures anyway. ;) So here she is!

This dresser is for sale at $350 for locals in the Seattle area!
Measures 52 L x 18 D x 32 H    Drawers slide well and have dovetail joints!

Budget Grey and Yellow Master Bedroom

Hey y'all! Getting organized and decorating has been a slow process in the new house with a toddler and a new baby! It's a good day if I've showered and there aren't dishes all over the kitchen counters! lol I've basically just plopped my stuff down and purchased some essential furniture pieces. My bedroom is semi decorated; so, I thought I'd share it with you before I change it completely!

New House! SURPRISE!!!

Wow, so much has been happening in my life...

I had a new baby...AND

I moved into a new house! I'm super excited to begin its transformation! However, that's not going to be happening very quickly because of the new babe. I moved just a week before she arrived. Moving 9 months pregnant is pretty taxing...but it's easier than moving after just having surgery.

Don't lift anything heavier than the baby after a c-section? That lasted 2 days before I started picking up Reagan...! Then there might have been some dryer moving, and a dresser buying...which I carried down the stairs pictured below...Anyway, I survived. :)

Here are the before photos of the new digs the day I got the keys!

Parking is in the back of the house, so this is how I have to come down to our home. You can see my car in the upper right. It's nice to have off the street parking, but it's in an alley and my car has already been robbed. Granted Ethan left it unlocked...but still.

Introducing: Addilyn Victoria!

This baby was a complete surprise, but I'm totally smitten with her! We argued over her name until literally the night before my c-section. I wanted Haven Victoria. I love that name, but he hates it. I've decided that I have to have one more girl and that WILL be Haven. ;) Until then, here is my sweet Addilyn Victoria!

I love that little smile of hers! These photos were a tad rushed. She was already 2 weeks old here, and I've been so overwhelmed with everything I finally just said "OMG I HAVE TO GET THESE DONE TODAY!" So, I draped a comforter over the couch, wrapped her in a blanket, and voila!

DIY Modern Herringbone Baby or Dog Gate

 DIY Modern Herringbone Baby or Dog Gate

We needed a baby gate for the longest time...I had been using a bench that I'd just place at the foot of the stairs. Well the time finally came (maybe a year ago? lol) that Reagan started climbing onto the bench. Yeah, that wasn't going to work anymore.
