It is week 3 of the One Room Challenge over at Calling it Home – a 6 week design challenge that many other bloggers have taken on. If you stop by and take a look you’ll get to see so many talented participants! If you missed my first 2 weeks of the challenge you can find Week 1 here, and Week 2 here. This week I’ve been putting some finishing touches on an antique dresser makeover. This will go nicely in our daughter’s modern farmhouse room and give her some much needed storage. And the best part is – we got it for free!
It’s no secret that I love a great budget-friendly, time-saving DIY home decor project. If I see a piece of art that I really want in our home and know that I can make it myself for less money and a little time – I usually try it. This lead to my latest creation. I used a super simple method to make a personalized hand-lettered canvas that turned out beautifully!
It is also week 2 of the One Room Challenge hosted by Calling It Home and I have updates on what I have been working on for my modern farmhouse girl’s room makeover. I’ve purchased a few items for my daughter’s room and I’m so excited about how everything is coming together so far. If you follow me on Instagram you will be able to see some sneak peeks of my progress. You’ll definitely want to stick around for the next few weeks to see the reveal!
We recently moved our 2 year old daughter into her own room and she is pretty excited about it! She loves having her own space and having a place to hoard her hundreds of stuffed animals (do stuffed animals have a magical power to multiply overnight?! I don’t know how our children have acquired so many!). Her room definitely needs some modern farmhouse style, feminine touches, and furniture as well. One of the biggest changes will be giving up her toddler bed for a big-girl twin sized bed. Wait, she’s not a toddler anymore? Gah! I did not expect this to be an emotional room makeover!
Easter is quickly approaching and I am so happy that Spring has arrived! It is so refreshing to see bright beautiful flowers in bloom. The nice weather gives me a spring in my step and I love to admire the signs of new life. This year I created an Easter banner to give us a reminder of why we celebrate Easter.
My thriftiness and desire to DIY my own projects sometimes leads to me hoarding items until I can figure out what to do with them. I have a huge stash of craft items and thrift store finds just waiting for inspiration to strike. Sometimes it can be a good thing – like this project for instance! A few years ago I found this wine crate at my local thrift store for a few dollars and knew that I could use it for an organization project. It now serves as a functional part of our home and helps with our pantry organization!
