So… the one and only room in our little house that is ALMOST done is Pearson’s room. Of course the baby’s room is the most important, right?! As soon as we learned the gender of our little peanut, the planning began. Our house was built in 1928, so it came with some lovely pink tile in the guest bath. Having said that, I wasn’t too keen on having half of the rooms in our home PINK. (I think my husband appreciates that *wink*) Anyway… I wanted a classy baby room. Is that an oxymoron? As I searched for beautiful and soothing baby decor, it was all pink, blue, chocolate brown, yellow and green. Not a ton of options there. So of course I wanted an all WHITE nursery! Crazy? ABSOLUTELY! My friend, Kristin, gave me the validation I was yearning for. She said, “If you can wash it, it doesn’t matter what color it is!”. DONE AND DONE!!
So here is the result:
We remodelled our little kitchen to have an open concept space and that involved a stainless steel refrigerator. Did you know that magnets don’t work on stainless steel?? Where was I to display P’s art? Our house is seriously all windows and doors so I must be very judicious with my wall space. Art gets some precious real estate around here! So here is the first of my Small Space Solutions: I wanted a great bulletin board for art, pictures, invitations, etc… and also be large enough to hold her homecoming mums (if they still do that in 2023…I can’t believe I just typed that year). We ordered a bulletin board from Sam’s and bought some great fabric from Childress, took it to Michael’s with a 60% off coupon for some framing. If you don’t feel like going the DIY route, check out these awesome bulletin boards from Ballard Designs. I particularly love the sisal covered one by Suzanne Kasler.
P.S. We had a mirror installed behind her dutch door so she will have an awesome runway to check her threads for many years to come!
