I realized I haven't shared any pictures of my daughter's Nursery.

 Since we got rid of most of our baby stuff when we moved from NY to WI, the biggest challenge is working with what we have. Sabrina is our 3rd (and last!) child so I refuse to buy anything new. The only thing I purchased is the crib which I got from Craigslist. It is safe to say that I only spent about $100 on this room...

{My favorite element is the DIY frames wallpaper - I used contact paper and permanent marker inspired by Graham and Brown.}

{The bird mobile is another DIY}

The room is tiny and is actually a bonus room off of my other daughter's room (separated by a walk-in closet).  It will eventually be their study room/library.

Now that the brick fireplace is white,  I feel like I have to paint the beams white as well...

{Do you like how I styled our coffee table?}

{If only the beams are not to orangey!}


Have a great weekend!

Most of you guys suggested bench for the foyer,  so bench it is!

I really wanted to add a modern piece in the space so I chose this Andalucia bench from overstock.
You can't beat the price and the quality is good!  I love it! 
 {This is probably as close as I'm going to get to owning a Barcelona daybed }

And yes,  I still have to paint the handrail and the mirror.  Ugh!

The kids' bathroom is 99% done.  I just have to paint some trim and doors.  Hope to show you the big reveal soon.  In the meantime, here's a little peak...

Have a great weekend!

I've been wanting to paint our dresser orange...

Are you a fan?  Do you have a favorite shade of orange?

Ours was fun...

Remember the original moodboard for the foyer?

Except for the black and white checkered floors, everything I chose didn't work out

The settee is too big...

The size of the mirror is off...

 I think the lantern chandelier works...

and I'm still undecided on this wallpaper for the above wall...

I still want to incorporate a touch of green in the space and maybe a modern element.

A green modern chair?

{a green panton or eames chair?}

or I can just paint this chair green and recover the seat white...

{and paint this mirror from the family room black}

I need help!

I wish you all a Happy Easter weekend!
