Slowly, but surely, I am making this new house our home. It is so frustrating not to be able to get decorating projects done when at the pace I would like. Thank goodness for my mother-in-law, because I don't know how I would have gotten anything done without her help. She took the boys for half the day on Saturday and I got a few more projects knocked off of my list.
First was painting our front door. It was a bad shade of burgundy when we moved in (and a bad paint job as well) Here is the before:
Now it is a nice warm shade of brown:
I also had time to do some decorating and re-arranging in the boys' rooms. I hung up some new artwork in Landon's room including the autographed Ben Harper poster that the hubs won, and a very precious photo of Landon with his Great-Granddaddy. Landon loves this area now...whenever we are in the he goes right over to it and points at everything. So adorable.
And a new little arrangement on his cabinet:
I also switched out some owl prints in his room for "L" and "H" alphabet cards (his middle name is Harper):
I think his room is a lot cozier now. :)
In Ben's room, I got a few shelves installed in his cute little nook, as well as a collage frame and some knick-knacks.
I framed a "B" alphabet card for him, and hung that over his dresser.
I moved the bird canvas that was previously there to over his crib, where it now hides the useless intercom that's smack dab in the middle of the wall.
I also put up my fun new chalkboard wall decal a few days ago. A wire shelf I already had will serve as a great chalk / pretty decor holder. I love how it greets us as we walk down the stairs. A great place for positive reminders.
Now all I need is to buy some chalk! What quote do you think I should christen it with?
Happy Monday everyone...it is going to be a busy week!
