Master Bedroom Makeover

Today I am giving you a littl preview of our Master Bedroom Makeover. Since moving in about a year ago we never got around to decorating above our bed. Our bed was pretty much just thrown together and the only thing I had purchased was the bedding before moving. I had so much inspiration on Pinterest to go with a grey, yellow and turquoise color scheme. 

I absolutely love the look of gallery walls and knew one above the bed would be so fun so once the colors and ideas were decided I began shopping and searching for all the accents.

This was a fun project. I took a pre-cut piece of wood from our local craft store and painted it teal and added the vinyl decal. 

This was an old picture frame that I spray painted then I bought the unfinished letters at the craft store and painted them with metallic acrylic paint.

Pillows I sewed a simple pocket pillow cover for them

Big Boy Bedroom Inspiration

The time has finally come that I get to change my son's nursery into a big boy bedroom! He turned 2 years old in September and I have been pondering ideas since before his birthday of what we could do. My first thought was to go full on nautical themed and while I love the colors and will be using that color scheme I also want to incorporate other things that he loves as well. 

My son has a deep love for airplanes and "boy stuff" so I wanted to be able to have a variety of object in the decor and not just boats. I recently remembered that some time ago I pinned this adorable wall decal from the Etsy shop House Hold Words and I realized it
 was perfect!

I want to use this decal but instead it is going to say Planes, Trains, Boats and Toys which helps incorporate all the elements of the room that I want. So with this being the main focal point above his bed I will decorate with items that include planes, trains and boats. 

Here are swatches of the fabric I will be using. The color scheme I am using is a light blue, navy blue, red, white and a grey.

I am a huge fan of pennant banners and love the way they look when added to a bedroom or party decor so when I saw this one on Etsy by Blue Moon Studios I knew I wanted to make something similar but using my color scheme above.

I found this adorable room set up over at Pottery Barn Kids and fell in love with the theme of trains. It is such a great idea and of course the colors match my vision for my son's room as well.

This bedroom has to be my favorite that I came across over at Thrifty Decor Chick. While it is an all plane themed bedroom the colors and accents are beautiful together and she did a great job putting together her son's bedroom. My favorite has to be this wooden plane as well as the propeller she painted and hung on the wall.

Over at Posh Paper Parties Co you can find this adorable pennant banner for sale but I not only like the banner I absolutely love the display and the entire bedroom's colors and the pillows.

Lastly I love this bedroom that was shown on Project Nursery. My favorite part is that you get to see the light blue color of the walls mixed with the navy curtains and bedding and the pennant banners. My son's wall have been painted a light blue since moving into our new house so this has given me a great idea of what his room will come together to look like.

Bow Holder Tutorial


If you have browsed my blog in the past you might have seen my post over a year ago showing off the bow holder I made to match our daughters bedroom. When we decided we would be moving I decided to make her new bedroom into a "big girl bedroom" and surprise her. So I of course re-did her bow holder to match the decor and thought I would share this project.

This has to be the easiest project ever. You literally take a frame, spray paint it to your desired color then take the glass or plastic that comes with the frame or if there isn't any you could even use cardboard, and you want to cover that with your fabric and tape it tightly to the back.

Pick out matching ribbon and tape the ends on the back side as well. I did 3 rows of ribbon on this frame. The frame was a cheap frame that I bought at ikea so it just had some thin plastic that I covered. Lastly you want to assemble the frame and hang it! It really was so easy.. the hardest part was deciding which color to paint the frame :)

Deciding On Paint Colors...

As you may have read by now we have sold our house and purchased a new home. The new house is all original 70's.... yes paint, carpet and all! So we have a huge project on our hands right now. 

Before we had possession of the new house we tried to plan out as much as possible before hand so that we were ready to go the moment we got keys. I ended up picking out all the paint for the rooms ahead of time and I wanted to share this awesome tip that I used with you all. 

Since we were in our home that we were selling at the time we were not able to just paint samples all over our walls. So I took cheap paper plates and painted the sample colors on them. I originally was going to have my husband take a big piece of plywood and paint it white so that I could paint the samples onto the big piece of wood. But in the end it was a good thing he was too busy to do that for me because once I decided to paint on the plates the idea was so much more convenient. I went through many color samples that I did not like so I was able to just throw those paper plates away, then the ones that I did like they were easy to carry to stores with me to pick out decor and they were easy to take around the house and put against different walls and color decor to see if they matched instead of taking around a huge piece of plywood. I know this might not be the most amazing idea out there but I had to share because it was just so convenient for me and a great solution to have our paint colors at hand.

Thanks for visiting today,

DIY Canvas Pictures

Today I am sharing with you probably the most easiest craft project I have done yet. I made these canvas pictures to hang in our daughters Big Girl Bedroom and I cannot wait to get them up and see them with the rest of the decor. 

Like I said this is such an easy project and if you want to make them the hardest part is deciding what picture you will use. 

I bought the printable's from Etsy, printed them at our local Staples, and cut them to size for the canvas'.
The only other steps is to paint the canvas your desired color then use either adhesive spray on the back of the pictures or do like me and brush some Mod Pogde on the back of the picture and press onto canvas.
Be sure to rub the picture against the canvas to get rid of any air bubbles. 

Isn't that simple? And look how awesome they look!

Here are the edges of the pictures, they flow very well.
If you think the edges of the pictures look too thick against the canvas, take a light sand paper and sand down the edges to make them transition into the canvas nicer.
I did not do that step with these and they still look amazing!

All done and ready to be hung in our daughters Big Girl Bedroom!

DIY Letter Wall Decor

Today I wanted to share with you this adorable H letter wall decor I made for our daughters upcoming Big Girl Bedroom. Our daughters favorite color is pink so although I will be using other colors in the bedroom I wanted to have pink accents like this around the room.

I saw tons of ideas on Pinterest for decorated letters but most were painted and some decorated with tulle. I decided to use fabric flowers to decorate the H to give it some dimension and to make it stand out on the wall. 

If you are looking to make a similar letter the steps are simple. The most time consuming thing is making the flowers.

To start get a letter cut out of some sort, you could even use card board if you wanted. I bought this wooden H at Michaels.

Next spray paint the letter or use acrylic paints to paint it.
Make the fabric flowers using this tutorial.
Then lay the flowers on the letter and arrange them how you would like and glue them down. 
It's that simple!

Big Girl Bedroom Inspiration

Now that we are moving into a new home I decided it would be fun to completely redecorate our daughters bedroom and surprise her once she arrives to the new house. 
Since my daughter was born she has had the same color bedroom and the same decor (below).

I have seen some amazing ideas on Pinterest for Big Girl Bedrooms and I have fallen in love with many of the bedrooms that I have found. After realizing what direction I wanted to go with for the room I then decided on the colors scheme, which is pink, teal, yellow and turquoise. Here are the fabrics below that I am using for some projects in the room.

I also got this gorgeous fabric from Hobby Lobby that I am going to have a blanket made out of for her bed. 

For her walls I am going to use her existing pink in her bedroom for one wall and then the rest of her walls will be a light turquoise color. 

Take a look at some of the fun inspiration I have found along the way for her bedroom by visiting my Big Girl Bedroom Pinterest board.

Have you redone your child's room lately? Please share in the comments.. I am still looking for more fun ideas as well as ideas for the future Big Boy Bedroom I will be doing for our son.

Take care,

DIY Bunny Canvas Decor

Today I am sharing with you how to make this adorable yet simple Bunny Canvas Decor project. 
For my mantel I needed one more touch of something and decided some type of canvas piece would be fun. I decided on the fabric because I have never done it before and wanted to try it out. I also wanted to test out my fabric blade that I got for the silhouette machine.  So after a little planning here and there this project came about. I hope you enjoy it!

First I picked out two pieces of fabric to match my decor.

Cut the fabric for the background to be big enough to fold over to the back of the canvas and secure down. 

For cutting the bunny I used my Silhouette machine with the fabric blade. This blade is the same as the regular one just a different color so you will know to not use it on paper- it will dull the blade and not be able to cut fabric.

I took a clip-art image of a bunny and traced the outline on my Silhouette Studio program

Cut the bunny as instructed in the program

And Ta-da this is what you get :)
You could also print a clip-art image from your computer, cut it out, trace it onto a piece of fabric and cut the bunny out by hand.

To secure down the fabric I brushed on a very thin coat of Mod Podge onto the front of the canvas to get the fabric to really hold.

Pull the sides of the fabric to the back and staple down tightly.

Add a thin layer of Mod Podge to the back of the fabric bunny cut out

Apply bunny to the fabric covered canvas

I then took matching tulle and cut it into 2.5 inch wide strips. I only used 2 of them and the length of the tulle that came off the bolt was 60 inches so they were 2.5x60. 

Take both strips and wrap them around your 4 fingers like in the picture above. 

This is what you will have once you have wrapped the two.

Cut a little piece of scrap tulle and use it as a string to tie across the center of the folded tulle

Then take the scissors through the two ends and cut all the loops to be open. You will then take and fluff up the tulle into a ball. You will literllay pull some of the tulle in all directions until you get what you want.
Then lastly hot glue it onto the tail area of the bunny.

TA-DA All done!!!

Here is a little peak at my Easter mantel this year. 
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter and have fun making some decor for the holiday as well!
