master bedroom headboard and doily hoops

master bedroom headboard and doily hoops

A little master bedroom redo was in order! I fiiiiinally recovered my headboard! It was a basic brown, which I was getting pretty sick of. We attached the three separate pieces and I recovered it as one piece. I picked out this floral fabric which I ADORE. It worked out perfectly! I also whipped up a few pillow covers that coordinate with the … [Read more...]

cute and quirky playroom makeover by craftiness is not optional

I finally am ready to share the playroom makeover with you all! I am so excited about it-it's my new favorite room to hang out in, which is handy, cause the kids kinda like it too. What are the ODDS?

newly recovered chairs

Remember those chairs I got thrifting awhile back? Well, I finally got around to recovering them. It wasn't a matter of the fabric-that I had picked out hours days after buying the chairs. (a steal at $5 a pop) Speaking of the fabric, it's a lovely zig zag home dec fabric I got from my even lovelier sponsor, Tuft Love. Lovely, lovely, lovely. I … [Read more...]

sprucing up

Our master room has been in desperate need of some sprucing up. It still needs some window treatments (and better furniture) but those will happen someday....In the mean time, I found this cute duvet cover at Home Goods and made some pillows and wall art to try and make it look like adults live here. I love the monograms I made for our "sides" … [Read more...]

crafty room

I've shown my craft room here and here, but I recently deep-cleaned it and I'd changed a few things so I took a few pictures the other day. I also love to see "behind the scenes" if you will, of other bloggers. Hope you do too! I love my little "inspiration" board, made with twine and nails. Nothing unique or fancy, just a fun place to fill with … [Read more...]
