Under Construction!

That’s my excuse for all the silence on the blog.  #sorry

It’s been crazy over here!  There’s nothing pretty to take pictures of… just a lot of dust, toys and a random love seat in the dining room.  Well, it could be my hillbilly sette! Ha

I’m really excited for everything going on over here.  I wanted to give you guys a quick home tour and explain what’s going on, our goals and dreams.  Please disregard the mess.

$10 DIY Plant Stand

PS 19

Remember when I wrote a post on my “Blog Birthday?”  I included in that post my goals for this year.  One goal was to up my DIY game and get some power tools.  I’m here today to say that I’ve upped my game (thanks for the push Gina at The Shabby Creek Cottage) AND I’ve learned how to use power tools, just haven’t made the purchase yet! This is huge.  I want to be able to make things, ya know?  When Gina suggested the idea of a challenge, (make furniture using only 2X4s) I knew this was the opportunity I needed to get some fire under my feet!

Wood Burned Easter Eggs

Egg 6

You guys.  I’m.Obsessed.  I’ve been burning eggs for days!! My husband thinks I’m crazy.

Have you guys noticed the wood eggs at Target?  I’ve been eye ballin’ then for a couple weeks, just not sure what to do with them.  Recently, I received a wood burner from Walnut Hallow for another project I’m working on.  Laying in bed one night, it hit me!  I could not get to Target soon enough the next morning!!!!

Shiplap Master Bedroom

Master W Ship 3

Hey!  Welcome back to week two of our Master Bedroom Makeover.  This is so much fun.  Ask my hubby! #kidding

Do you ever think, “oh this will look great.”  Get it home and then…. no. Gotta go?  I’m usually pretty good at picking up my odds and ends for a room but I’m struggling y’all.  After I walked the mall the other day I had a VERY sleepy toddler.   I had to move my car around to the other side of the mall, get out the babes from her car seat and go into TJ MAXX, making TWO trips to purchase two end table lamps and a floor lamp for this room.  I must mention that Eva was walking slower than molasses for these trips.  After we were home, I decided the two night stand lamps were too bulky.  However, I love the floor lamp.  So, off to TJ Maxx again to return the two.  That’s a lot of work with a little babes by your side! I’m exhausted typing that! LOL

Do you love to decorate, then move it around again…and again?  Just me?  I’m obsessed!  And now, little E is an interior designer in the making!  Seriously, funny story.  When I was decorating her desk for the Play Room Makeover.  She was sitting in her chair and I was displaying the items on her desk to take pictures.  She would move something, then I would move it back, then she would move it again!  Like, seriously?!?

So today, I’m sharing some tips on styling a buffet.  Yesterday, a couple gals shared their tips and today, a couple are sharing too!  This little hop covers all kind of items.  Styling tips for coffee tables, mantles, buffets etc.  If you’re coming over from Monica’s beautiful blog, welcome!

Shabby Chic Kid’s Bedroom

Eva Val 9

And, we have a toddler just like that.  Seems like yesterday we were finally bringing her home from the NICU.  So now, here we are transitioning her nursery into a toddler room.

I won’t lie.  We co-sleep.  Eva has NEVER once slept in her room.  After coming home from our vacation last month, I decided it was time to “work” on getting Miss Eva into her own bed.  Her room is upstairs and our master is on the main level.  This has always been difficult for me.  We started to work on it and we were doing alright.  We get up a lot in the middle of the night and sleeping next to a monitor is near impossible for me.  I think this whole transition is harder for me than her.
