We have this nice double surface board from Melissa & Doug but the primary colors didn’t really do it for me. And I do not know why but, lately I have this urge to personalize everything generic and make it “ours”. So, I grabbed the board and turned it into a kitchen menu board for The Cute’s play kitchen.
Since I have a ton of paint from my super sample haul in December, I picked a pink (front side), a hot pink (side…sides) and a soft green can (for the back side) and went to work.
In our nursery, the book situation was a little…blah. For the longest time we used a basic – so basic it was ugly – cabinet that I came to regret the 20 dollars it costed. If you don’t like an item, even 10 cents are too many.
Enter the DIY bookcase ledges. A project so simple that I was bound to make it difficult.
For one, I nailed the 5 ledges twice. Because the first time, even with my painstaking attention to detail, my brain was – apparently – in a completely different dimension than the rest of me and so, I nailed every.single.ledge, wrong.
We finally have a finished accent wall in our living room. Way back in July, I took the living room by storm and painted every wall. Every wall except the accent wall that is facing the sofa. For months, we sported a quirky and totally artsy wall, decorated with…paint swatches.
Few things get one in the spirit of the Christmas holidays, like visiting a well done Santa village. A well known candle factory, based in western Ma creates a sparkly and fun experience for anyone that loves Christmas. Toddlers, children and…tall children (that’s us – grown ups) alike, get thrilled with the trains, the rotating trees, the sparkly ornaments and the enticing smells all around.
This is not an affiliate post. Hubby took me and The Cute for a surprise drive to Yankee Candle village and we took a few photos to show you a few glimpses of how entertaining it is.
