Currently all three boys share a room, and at the rate the basement renovation is happening, it's going to be like this for a little while longer. However, sharing a room isn't the issue, the size of the room is. Since it is a smaller room, we have to make sure we utilize every square inch of the space, goes along with the theme for the rest of our house as well. I believe the room is 11x11, this includes the closet not pictured to the left of the bed.Read More
Instead of throwing them out, we did what we're good at, we recycled them and passed them down to their sister. Not only does she have her own room, but she has much smaller clothes. We currently have all of our 1963 bi fold doors removed from the closet for several reasons. They we're starting to come off the tracks, and honestly are just too dated for the current design of our home. The closets will most likely be tackled after the basement renovation takes off.Read More

Gallery walls are my favorite home decor in our home. I know recently within the last few years gallery walls have been all the craze. I however do not treat gallery walls as a "trend" per say. Hanging beautiful artwork, and most importantly photos of your children are timeless and never "trending". I also believe there's a specific way gallery walls should be approached. I've come across several that include mass produced art and random items. These types of gallery walls can be wonderful, IF the items are meaningful. I personally don't want to display store bought items; insert custom floral prints here.Read More
We've slowly been adding pieces to our room to bring it all together. I've been wanting a light next to my side of the bed in hopes of eventually having enough time to read at night. My favorite part about do it yourself projects is using what you already have on hand. We just finished a floating nightstand that we upcycled from on hand materials, and we have a small pile of excess wood from our diy modern wood play set. That's where these scrap pieces came from.
This is hands down one of the easiest projects to date. All it took was a handful of cuts. You can make this entire project out of one 2x2! Once you make your cuts (you can personalize this diy minimal wall light stand to your liking), all you need to do is attach your pieces with screws. Easy peasy! Here's what it looks like assembled and hung.Read More
