One Room Challenge Tween Queen Bedroom and Bath {Week 3}

Posted on

For all of you rolling out of bed right now, let me tell you it’s Wednesday. Which means it’s time to check in on the One Room Challenge! And this week is Week 3, which I’ll do the math for you is the half-way point of the 6 week challenge!!! And whew, those three weeks have flown by!!! But there has been so much progress in my daughter’s bedroom and bathroom that unless a total catastrophe happens I should be able to complete the room ahead of schedule. So if anyone is doing the One Room Challenge and needs help (and lives in a warm, tropical location) you can fly me in and I’ll come paint walls or sew pillows for you. But that’s about where my handy skills end. Ok, let’s talk about some of the fabulous items that have arrived on my doorstep the past couple of weeks. …

One Room Challenge Tween Queen Bedroom and Bath {Week 2}

Posted on

You know that saying, “the days are long but the years are short”- I feel like right now the days are short and the weeks are even shorter!! Week 2 of the One Room Challenge is here already, which means its time for me to give y’all an update on my room(s). If you missed my Week 1 post you can check it out here. For this round of the ORC I am making over my 9 year old daughter’s bedroom and bathroom. Let’s talk about some of the furniture choices I made for her bedroom. I really wanted this room to transition with her as she starts to enter these oh so awkward stages of life. Even though she is only 9 I really want the furniture pieces to work when she’s 9, 13, or 16. First up was getting a bed that would fit a growing child. For this I …

One Room Challenge Tween Queen Bedroom & Bath {Week 1}

Posted on

Happy Day, Happy Day- the One Room Challenge is underway!!! A huge thank you to Linda from Calling It Home for not only organizing this massive project but for also thinking enough of the Suburban Bees to invite us back for another round! Tricia hit a home run last Fall with her living room makeover and I hope I can follow her lead and make an amazing room revamp in these next 6 weeks. So let’s get down to what room is receiving this makeover. There were a few candidates that I considered, including our master bathroom, an upstairs bonus room, or my daughter’s bedroom. Each room had pro’s and con’s, and in the end I wanted to get my daughter involved in this project by making her room over and getting her input on some of the major design decisions. My daughter just turned 9, but she’s fairly mature …

2016 Holiday Home Tour Part II

Posted on

Today we’re back to share some more of our holiday home tours with you as part of the Pink Door Holiday Tour. Big thanks to Annie of All Things Big and Small for organizing us! If you missed on Wednesday, we shared our living rooms and breakfast nooks as part of the 12 days of Christmas tours. And today we’ve got more holiday decor goodness to share! Erin’s House: I always love when people decorate their staircases for Christmas. This year I kept it super simple and easy for our stairwell. I picked up some real garland from Costco and draped it along the railings. I added a few black and white bows at the posts and middle swag and called it good. Last year Target had these paper stars as part of their holiday collection. I always struggle with where to put them so this year I threw them …
