Before and After: My Little Boy's Room Makeover

Little Boys Room Makeover

A little over a year ago we bought our home at an estate sale. We bought the house "as is." All the rooms in the house were about as bad and outdated as the above picture shows. This room had 40-year-old matted carpet, stained velvet damask wall paper, and an industrial sized burn-your-hand-off radiator...not to mention all sorts of other issues. Right when we bought the house we were in the process of adopting a 7-year-old boy, so we decided to focus "aesthetically" on the bedrooms and upstairs hallway. Most importantly our son needed a fun room in his forever home.   Continue Reading

How to: Modern and Colorful Geometric Mobile

By: Jeran Oct 08, 2015

I recently became an aunt again. I've made baby quilts and mobiles for all three of my brother's kids. The first one was a drift wood and sea shell one and then I made a birch bark and birdy one, but for this third baby I made a brightly colored quilt in triangles, so I wanted to continue that theme with the mobile. 

A few supplies from the craft store, a drill and some craft paint, and I had a mobile made in about an hour.                  Continue Reading
