Boy’s Room Tour

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

I’ve been falling asleep in this space for a few nights, I just can’t help it!  I find snuggling up with my little guy in this room late at night completely irresistible.  It’s here where I learn all his secrets, his battle plans, and if I listen carefully, the location of buried treasure.  It seems everyone in our house has been spending more hours in this room lately, especially the resident to whom it belongs, our five year old son.

Last year we said goodbye to the soft blue nursery walls, and upgraded to a more mature, more intense teal blue, and the completion of the board and batten treatment last week enhances the color even more.  I wanted it to be a bright clean happy place, one where he could adventure and explore.  A room where he could not only display everything he loves right this very moment, but one that would also adapt to his changing interests over time.

Want the grand tour of our boy’s room?   Come on in!

Cabinet Transformations GIVEAWAY

Friday, March 4th, 2011

Greetings all, TGIF!  The sun popped out and all of a sudden and I’m soooo wanting to visit the garden department this weekend to fill up some planters.  Spring fever has definitely set in! 

1306Announcing the winner of last weekend’s Campbell Hausfeld giveaway.  Over 1,500 entries, wow you peeps love power tools!  Guess who gets to choose either the brad nailer/compressor combo or a big bad 2 ½” finish nailer?  #1,306Mom in High Heels.  Congratulations!

Also, there’s a new blog I think you’ll love: Favorite Paint Colors.  I met Kristin in Nashville when this site was just getting started, and now she has a gallery with paint colors from rooms all across blog land.  It’s so helpful to see colors on real walls in real homes!

Hey, speaking of spring fever, are you in the mood for a DIY makeover in your own home?  Remember a few weeks back how I reviewed the Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformations kit?  Several of you have used this kit already (like Mallory and Sarah and Debbie) with fantastic results.  And so many more mentioned how you’d seen it at your local Home Depot or Lowes and really wanted to use it in your own homes. 

Here’s your chance to get your hands on one!
