I'll tell you what's been crack-a-lackin...a whole lot of craziness. There are multiple projects underway around here so I'd thought I'd give a preview of whats to come.
Our old bedroom...which we lived in for about 2 years until we just recently finished the up stairs of our cape this spring is going to transform into a dining room.
I want it to be dramatic but light and airy so we are doing 5' high wainscoting. Have you ever used a chalk line snapping tool...I don't know it's proper name but it is super fun Just measure string across the wall and snap! A cloud of blue chalk dust and bam...you got yourself a guideline!
The chalk line is for painting guidelines as well as where the top molding piece or chair rail will be. I'll be sure to keep you updated every step of the way on that transformation but for now my top priority os finishing up the floating shelves in Avery's room.
There are three 4' shelves that will go in a cubbie area. I just need to prim & paint them.
Then the fun part...putting all her stuff on them...books, decorative objects and photos! Do you know I used to be a visual merchandiser for both a high end furniture store and a clothing store. I had so much fun being creative and trying out new design ideas. I plan on posting about how to style a bookcase with a few options as well as some fun tips.
Finally we brought Avery glow bowling the other day for the first time. It was really fun to get out and do something as a family. She spent the first half clinging onto us for dear life...maybe it was the Justin Bieber music blaring or it could have been the flashing disco lights. She finally warmed up and even bowled her first ball!
