When we built our house, Cameron decided he wanted to do grey stripes in his room. We had this on his walls in our last house, and he wanted his new room to look just like his old one. However, It just never looked right to me in this new space, and the gray made his room feel really dark and cold. In addition to that, he has been growing so fast that he was completely outgrowing his twin bed….So for his Bday, we decided to get him a bigger bed and re-do his room. We did it all ourselves and Cam gave alot of input and I loved working on this project with him! It was so fun to watch it all come together!
His room BEFORE:First, we covered the stripes with shiplap paneling, 4’x8′ panelsSo grateful for a helpful hubby! He is super handy and I am so grateful that he is always willing to help me with my projects. haha! Also, my little ladies were super good helpers too! We bought a little paint gun at Home Depot that helped us so much with priming and painting this much shiplap.. Little miss LOVES to help! 😉 Even in assembling furniture. I always get so excited by a blank slate… We found this bed on Joss and Main and the bookcase and nightstand from RHteen.The finished product! YAY! I love the creativity of accessorizing and finding the right colors and textures. We took the picture above his bed when we were up the canyon taking pics for Cameron’s birthday in March, and it turned into my inspiration for the whole room. I framed it and put it above the bed because I just loved how it turned out. The sun hit my lens so beautifully that night!! Cameron Loves Kayaking and being in the mountains, so it fit perfectly.One of my other favorite finds was the custom print we had made by a company called The Night Sky. They take the night your child was born and give you the way the sky looked that night from your location. Its so cool and I loved this and I knew Cameron would too. I found most of this at Target! 🙂My good friend, Nabby, helped me sew the window seat cushion and pillows! She is seriously one of the most talented people I know and I was so grateful to have her help with this project. And of coarse I couldn’t resist a couple pics of my little Rosie buddy helper.
I’m finally getting around to posting a few things! haha! We have had a very busy last couple of months, but I had to share Cams birthday pics. I can’t get over how old he is looking and I just loved getting to explore one of his favorite spots with him this spring when the lake was still covered with ice. He loves the mountains and his kayak. So it was the perfect place to find inspiration when we were thinking about redecorating his room… more to come on that later 😉
Oh man, I am just so excited about this baby! Meet baby Walter… My sister has had 4 girls and then this little guy decided to join in the fun! We are all so thrilled for their family and we may be biased, but we all think he is just the cutest little guy in the whole world! We love you Walter!
I finally finished the kids bathroom. This may seem like a small task, but you’d be surprised at how many different things I’ve had going on in this bathroom, and I am so glad we finally hit the right spot with it! Plus, I swear everything just takes 4 times as long with 4 kids! So its just taken me longer to wrap it up…. ANYWAY, When we were designing our home plans, we made the choice to have all 4 kids share a bathroom… we did this in hopes that this will teach them to share and be respectful of one another… We will see how that goes as they get older! haha! So we had to decorate it in a style that would accommodate both the boys and the girls… Which can be tricky. But I want both the teen boys and the little girls to feel like this is a space they belong in. I found these adorable initial hooks while we lived in our last house, and I brought them with us to this new house… and then I grabbed the towels last summer when they went on sale. I included the links to the hooks, but the towels are no longer available, but I included some towels that are similar. I’ve always loved hanging cute, uplifting phrases in their bathroom, so they can read them as they get ready for the day! I made these from free printables from Pinterest, and had them printed at ProDigital Photos. Loved this vase I found at Pottery Barn (link below). I found the eucalyptus sprigs at a wholesale place in Salt Lake. If your local and interested in them, shoot me a email or DM, and I will give you the info.I love a good, classic faucet. I chose something that I felt like will not go out of style. So even if I change up the accessories in this space, I am glad I went with more traditional and classic faucets.I also just loved this rug I found! I put the link to it below. I bought the 5×3′ for this bathroom space, and it was just the perfect finishing touch for this space! It always makes me happy when I find something like this that makes the room come together and feel finished. To be honest, this wasn’t one of my favorites spaces when we were done building our home. When the home was finished, I felt like it didn’t come together the way I had hoped… in fact, I think I still want to switch out the light fixtures some day, but its amazing what a few fun accessories can do to a space. Adding the towels, the fresh rug and that darling vase, totally changed my mind about the space, and now I feel totally different about that room. I feel like its just right for my 4 little loves right now, and I love how it all came together…
