New Year, New Rooms

Winter break is over
sending kids back to school tomorrow and I couldn't be more thrilled.

I've spent the last two weeks holed up with feels like months.
I mean I love them, 
but I can't wait to get some time on my own and do whatever the hell I want.

Some exciting home projects will be starting and I can't wait to share them with you.
First off,
dining room wallpaper was delivered.

Hopefully it will look as awesome as this.

I'm also working on a room redo for my eight year old, Large.
She has outgrown the current room style that looks more nursery than 'older girl',
which is how she refers to herself.

Her room doubles as guest bedroom so I'd like it to be a bit sophisticated though still a girls room.
I've acquired different pieces here and there for the last few weeks.

An old mirror for $24 at the local antique mall.

A bulletin board that will be covered in fabric to hang pictures and stuff.

An antique writing desk for $99 on eBay.

After will be coming soon.

My entryway/living room/upstairs hallway will be repainted in a couple weeks.
I'm still thinking Chelsea Gray.

I was worried the house would look too dark,
but there's a lot of natural light throughout and also I always regret not going bolder.

Have I mentioned that we've lived in this house for four years and this will be the third time 
the same area has been painted?

  1. That writing desk is ridiculous. I say leave it, maybe change up the hardware, maybe just paint the interiors of the drawers. It's really gorgeous. Good find!

  2. I also like the hardware change idea and thought of the colored glass knobs that Joyce had. Just saying.


Tell me.
