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.

Noelle's Nursery

Welcome to Noelle's room! Here is how it's looking now. It's a happy place for me to be because it's pretty much the only room in our entire house that is always clean. I love that!

Just for fun, here is a picture of this room from the previous owners mls listing. It makes me realize what a big difference small things like hanging your curtains the right way can make.


 You may remember all I had done in here before was the relaxed shade. I added blackout curtains and sewed on the pink pom pom trim. Notice the finished window bench! I picked up the Nate Berkus fabric on the bench from Joann's on sale for only $8 a yard! We wrapped it over 2 inch foam and added a layer of batting, then fabric, and stapled it to a board.



 This is the dresser we painted in this post . Above is the painting the boys did for her. I think it turned out great! To make it, the boys worked on the red underneath first. After it dried, I gave them yellow, pink, and they mixed some grayish purple. I had to restrain myself but I didn't touch it- it's all their art! It turned out nice and abstract but I'm happy it goes with her room and has some meaning too.



Her crib is a Baby Mod crib from Walmart! I love it. I didn't do any decorating around the crib because dangling mobiles and even frames on the wall make me uneasy to have right next to her. It looks a little bare but I'd rather be safe than sorry!



And last, a picture of the little lady herself... snoozing away...

Coming up...The Boys Room!
