Transitioning from Nursery to Big Girl Room

Transitioning from Nursery to Big Girl Room

Hi friends! Long time no talk.  I hope everyone who is reading this has had a relaxing, enjoyable summer!  Our family has been working hard on not overscheduling and having plenty of downtime, which is a real treat compared to my norm of packing as much into a day as possible.  Wilson is absolutely thriving–...
Completed Kids' Bathroom!!!!

Completed Kids’ Bathroom!!!!

Well, it’s been 2.5 months since Wilson was born and I feel like I’m slowly coming out of that newborn foggy haziness phase… there’s a light at the end of the tunnel that one day I’ll sleep again, and maybe one day we’ll even do more work on the farmhouse.  Maybe.  Right now that seems...
Complete Little Brick Outbuilding

Complete Little Brick Outbuilding

EXCITING UPDATE! The floor in the little brick outbuilding is done and we’ve moved everything into David’s new office! I don’t know who’s more excited… David, for having a place he can work from home, or me, for having a place to put David’s crocodile head and Claymore sword.  (After we got married, we had...
Redecorating the Family Room

Redecorating the Family Room

We’ve spruced things up in our family room and I thought I’d share what it looks like now:Probably the biggest change is we took our the old bookshelves and dog crates and added a nice green wingback chair given to us from my Aunt Jenny (thanks again, Aunt Jenny!).  Then we moved around the furniture so...

Spray Paint a Brass Chandelier

It’s been quite a while since I last blogged!  And that’s because… it’s been quite a while since we last did anything to our house! Well, that’s not exactly true.  As I’ll share in the coming weeks, we’ve done a few things here and there but I just haven’t made time to post them all....

Completed Turquoise And Beige Nursery

Completed Turquoise And Beige Nursery

  Happy Saturday night, y’all!  (In case you were wondering, why, yes– I am sitting at home on a Saturday night and David and I are about to have a Scrubs marathon while Evie sleeps and we eat frozen dinner and drink some local red wine.  This is actually heaven to me these days.)  I...
Family Dresser

Family Dresser

  Most of the furniture in Evie’s nursery is new (well, new to our family… aka from Craigslist!) but there’s one piece that has a lot of meaning to me and I hope it will mean something to Evie one day.This dresser belonged to my mom.  She bought it at an auction in Richmond when...
Tie-Backs in the Nursery

Tie-Backs in the Nursery

  The last piece of the nursery puzzle is complete: the white eyelet curtain tie-backs! I ordered beige bows (to match the carpet and trim on the window shades) from Etsy for $16 each.  I decided to keep the closet doors on behind the curtains– a friend gave me a tip that once Evie is a...
A Monogram for the Baby!

A Monogram for the Baby!

We just about have Evie’s precious nursery done! A few weeks after she was born we ordered a 24 inch wood wall monogram from this Etsy shop for $65.  I’m a sucker for monograms, let me tell you.  I guess it’s a Southern thing but I’ve always loved mine.  (Side note: as you’ll see below, our last...
Linens in the Nursery

Linens in the Nursery

  Almost done with feminizing the nursery!  We decided to keep with the beige/ivory/white/turquoise color scheme and use white eyelet as the jumping off point. I ordered three pairs of white eyelet curtains from Overstock, plus a white eyelet bedskirt and pillow shams (also from Overstock), and got lucky with a white eyelet crib skirt...
Shelves in the Nursery

Shelves in the Nursery

Before little Evie came, we decided we were going to add shelves to the nursery using the brackets that used to be in the doorways downstairs. David cut and sanded four pieces of wood:   And I painted the (previously sanded by David) brackets the same turquoise blue color by CeCe Caldwell that we used for...
