DIY BUILT IN TEEN BED

Tuesday, November 18, 2014


We actually completed this built-in daybed a little over a year ago.  I just took the pictures today, so I could share it with all of you.   I'm slow.  I procrastinate.  Rarely will I ever be on the ball enough to show you a project "right" after we've finished it.  For instance, we just built a deck this summer for the pool  -- hopefully I'll get the pictures taken and share it with y'all next summer. Ha!  See what I tell ya?!  I'm a dilly-dallier.


We have a mile long "to-do" list for our home but lately the sign shop keeps us pretty busy.  This ginormous map was a project from last summer.  I think it turned out pretty well, except for the huge bubble -- it's really a 3D mountain.  Go with it -- that's our motto lately.
  

I did take lots of photos of the bed in progress.  I just can't find them now -- it's been a year. :/  I will say that I found an image on Pinterest of what I wanted and showed them to Eddie.  We made several changes so that it would fit our space and B's needs.  Like lots of book/movie storage and nightstands.


I found those cute little chrome lamps at Target and they fit the space perfectly.  The paisley comforter came from Marshall's.

The large mirror was off an old dresser and I painted the sign.  (No we do not sell these).  It's the perfect scripture and I love how the artist drew it.  Here's where you can find your own Fruit of the Spirit Art.


I got super blessed a few years ago to find a bedroom set that included this gorgeous vanity.  The tall boy dresser that matches is in B's closet.  I will never sell them.  Ever.


We built the floating shelf last summer.  CLICK HERE to see how we did it.



We love how her room turned out.  It was a ton of work but so worth it in the end.  Plus, it always feels good to do it yourself.  Thanks so much for stopping by -- we cannot tell you how much we would love to meet ya, so leave us a comment and let us know whatcha think!




IT'S PARTY TIME

Sunday, November 16, 2014

I love this time of year -- Thanksgiving & Christmas along with extra days off work.  I try to make it a rule every year that we don't bring out the lights & the tree until turkey day is over with.  So far I haven't broken my rule but neighbors all around me are and its got me wanting to join in on the festivities! LOL

I suppose the next best thing is to share our porch decorations from Christmas past.

We did a couple super quick tomato cage Christmas trees to go on either side of the front door.  You can see step by step how we made ours here.

But if  you aren't quite in the mood just yet and are patiently waiting for Thanksgiving then we'll go ahead and get the party started just for you!  Link up!
