Round two of Bedroom Painting

Winter took a while to get here in Maryland but when she finally arrived she had to make up for lost time.  Hello Winter… we have a long term love-hate relationship going on.

John and I decided to work on the inside of the house during the cold months.  We poked around and did some itty bitty things that I love- like backpack cubbies in our bookshelf.  Why didn’t we think of that before??

When you don’t have a mudroom you get a little creative.


We also got to painting the bedrooms.  Some of the bedrooms went through a 2nd round of paint.  Does anyone else repaint their bedrooms on the regular? Clarification: Does anyone else convince their husband to repaint their bedrooms on the regular?  What can I say- John is awesome.  Sorry for the grainy pictures to follow.  I have to dust off the DSLR.  I’m lazy and I love the convenience of whipping out my iPhone from my back pocket for a quick pic.  First world problem I suppose.

John and I did an upholstered grey headboard together as our Christmas present to each other.  Total cost for materials was $50.

…and now grab your sunglasses because Emma’s room might make your eyes water.  Little Emma picked out this bright, bold color and it could not be more fitting for this kid.

Emma is already talking about her next paint color… rainbow polka dots. What a little Housaholic ( :  Hopefully I don’t wake up to Mr. Sketch scented polka-dots lining her walls one of these days.

My name is Amanda and I love to write about my home and family. It's a little chaotic here sometimes but it's a beautiful kind of chaos, the kind where sticky little children giggle and scream and make fairy trails with glitter in the living room. I'm an RN, mother of three amazing girls, and the wife of the most hard working and loving husband, John. Follow the trail of glitter and sawdust and you might find us there.
