Hi, I’m Becky

For the last 5 years we have lived in our fixer upper home. We’ve done little projects here and there but now we are getting to the good stuff. I’ve always loved interior decorating and had a vision of the potential our house had lying in store.

I hope you follow along with our everyday life and feel inspired to create a space you love no matter where you are.

Baby Nursery- White trim and a shade

We are expecting a baby girl in November which means our guest room will turn into the baby's room. Even though I have zero energy this pregnancy, I've managed to get a few projects for her room done (definitely some nesting kicking in). I painted the trim in the room from oak to white. The difference is amazing.

Current. Sorry it's super hard to get a decent picture of this room because it's tiny!

I also made the shade. It's a relaxed roman shade. Right now it's just faux because we have a room darkening roller shade under it. I have intentions of making it a real movable roman shade eventually once she is big enough to know not to play with the cords. So it's just for looks now but I'm happy with the fun pattern it brings in the room. Fabric is from Tonic Living, I love that store! And in case anyone is interested I followed this tutorial mostly but instead of using glue I sewed it so I could covert it later.

Hopefully, I'll be able to finish all my other plans for this room before she makes an appearance :) Here's whats on the list:

  • Set up new crib (LONG story,  but my old crib got recalled in 2010 and amazingly after 2 hours on the phone and an hour in the store I was able to return it for a full refund! Time well spent!) 
  • Paint old dresser. The new crib is white so I want to paint the dresser we have white to match. 
  • The carpet in the this room is so worn and yucky. Replacing the carpet is not in the budget so I'm going to cover it with an area rug for now. 
  • DIY a starburst mirror.
  • Have the boys paint a picture for hanging above the dresser. We'll see how that goes :)
