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. …

The other tween’s room gets a refresh

Posted on

Have you been following along with Erin’s One Room Challenge and the tween queen bedroom she’s creating for her daughter? I’ve been promising the tween girl in my house for months now (ok, probably more like over a year) that I’d give her bedroom a refresh too. The inability though to find one clear inch of carpet that isn’t totally covered with dirty clothes, stuffed animals or candy wrappers (there is a “no food in the bedroom rule” that is liberally disregarded by my children) left me totally uninspired about taking on her room. This is what Alice’s room looked like two years ago, the last time I gave her space a facelift. Definitely sweet but… in the intervening two years she’s destroyed the duvet, chipped up the bed and every couple of months she has the carpet looking like it’s never ever been cleaned. Even though it had only been a …

A dining room refresh with wallpaper

Posted on

Thank you to Milton & King for partnering with me on this post today. As always all thoughts and opinions are my own. The dining room in this house has always been like the ugly stepchild and I’ve been the wicked stepmother with more scorn than love to share with it. But with the help of King & Milton wallpaper my dining room is finally getting a little limelight and love. I’ve been stubbornly holding on to this antique table and glass fronted cabinet even though they’re not a perfect fit for the room and, in the case of the table, isn’t even functional. On occasion it simply likes to collapse. Not ideal when a table’s loaded down with food. It’s so super awesome when that happens. Regardless, I’m not ready to part with it or the cabinet. Yet it’s hard to make fundamental change to a room when you aren’t …

Shiplap alternative wall treatments

Posted on

When Jenna of Rain on a Tin Roof asked me to join in a shiplap alternative blog hop I was ready to jump right in. Let me start off by saying welcome to Suburban B’s if you’re coming over from Two Firty-Five Designs; we’re glad to see you! Nineteen bloggers are joining forces to bring you wall treatment ideas that aren’t shiplap. WHAT you say?!?! Shiplap is hot in a big ole farmhouse way! Yeah, it definitely is but what about all those wall treatments that Chip and Joanna haven’t been using? Don’t get me wrong – I had a year long love affair with shiplap and I swore it my never-ending fidelity. I had my heart set on transforming my family room into a shiplap haven. It was destined to be my next big project and look something like this room from Fixer Uppers. And then suddenly farmhouse shiplap was everywhere. It was shiplap overload. And …

One Room Challenge – the kids’ bathroom {week five}

Posted on

Ok, are you guys ready for this? It’s Week Five of the One Room Challenge over at Calling It Home and I actually have real live progress to report to you this week! I had every intention of posting super early this morning but I took my daughter down to Denver to see Annie the Musical (she LOVED it). On the way home I realized that if I held off on my post until super late today I could show you something more than just a barren room. Like how about a bathroom that has wallpaper? First this week I took down the lights, towel bars and the monolith of a mirror. Add a little duct tape and take that sucker down! Bam! I think it took about 5 minutes for us to pop it off the wall. Fixing the huge gouges in the wall from the glue took a …
