It started with curtains

It started with curtains

Before we moved into the new house, we knew we would need new bedroom furniture.  Matt didn’t want to buy anything while we were still in the townhouse, since we had no clue what our new bedroom space would look like.  We ended up getting my old bedroom set from my mom and have had that for a few years now.  It was a decent size in the townhouse but we figured it would be too small once we moved….

Falcor?

Falcor?

Yesterday I bought my first decorative piece for the new bookshelf in our den. I ran to Marshall’s at lunch in hopes of finding something to get me started. I had seen a cute Owl a few months ago at TJ Maxx, and I am still kicking myself for not buying it, but I thought Marshall’s might have something similar. No such luck on the owl. What I did find was Falcor, you know the dragon dog from The Neverending…

Houston, we have a bookcase!

Houston, we have a bookcase!

One week later and our new bookcase is complete! I like it! I think I did well picking one that would fill the space. It’s stylish and modern yet has a ton of storage space. It’s not quite as study as I would like but Matt is going to brace it to the wall. Normally I wouldn’t care but Julio has already been climbing all over it so I feel like a brace is necessary. I’m looking forward to all…

Christmas decor

Christmas decor

Here are a few pics of our holiday decorations so far. Our Tree The Mantel with my Nutcrackers I am now collecting Nutcrackers. I need more! Wreaths for the windows I think I really need to do all 4 windows. Mom said she would pick up 2 additional wreaths if I wanted. I have a few printables sitting around plus a few nutcrackers that I printed on old book pages. I saw the idea on Etsy and feel in love…

Guest bathroom – a sort of makeover

Guest bathroom – a sort of makeover

Over the weekend I was apparently super productive, okay not really but from the pics it looks like I was. 😉  A few weeks ago I decided I wanted a new shower curtain for the guest bathroom.  I cannot, for the life of me, figure out what color I want to paint the guest bathroom so I decided a new shower curtain might help.  Don’t get me wrong, I liked the one I had, but I just wasn’t really digging…

From drab to FAB!

From drab to FAB!

I mentioned that Matt and I went to Southpoint on Saturday.  After lunch we headed towards the mall part, it’s kind of an indoor outdoor mall, but I wanted to stop by Anthropolgie on the way in.  It’s super pricey and I never even look at the clothes but I do like to look at the random housewares.   As I was browsing I noticed 2 big shelves full of knobs.  Oh heck yeah!  There’s a desk in our foyer…

Aww we’re growing up!

Aww we’re growing up!

On Saturday Matt and I went to Mebane to the outlet mall.  We found a few items but nothing great so we stopped at Southpoint Mall in Durham.  I really wanted to go to Crate and Barrel and look around.  I ended up finding a great bookshelf for the living room.  I’ve been on the hunt for a new one for the past couple of weeks but I couldn’t seem to find the right size for the right price. As…

It’s like a new room

It’s like a new room

Only it’s not.  Over the weekend Matt and I FINALLY painted our bedroom!  WOOO HOOO!  This was the last “room” that needed to be painted before new carpet.  We started Sunday afternoon with the expectation it would take us 2 days.  I mean we even went to Lowe’s and bought a ladder. Anyway once we got started, the paint flew on the walls and before we knew it we already had the 2 larger walls done.  Two coats done.  At…

Our weekend – in pics

Our weekend – in pics

Okay so I really have no inspiration right now so you get videos and pics!  😉  But in my defense we did a lot this weekend and I think pics are really the less boring way to get through this. As I mentioned we bought a new patio set and I love it!  It is just what we needed.  The deck isn’t that big so we didn’t need a really big set.  In fact I don’t think we really even…

The last one

The last one

Monthiversary that is.  We are finally to month 11 and wouldn’t you know it’s on Friday the 13th.  Matt and I decided to make this one a little extra special since we will be in NYC next month so I popped open a bottle of bubbly (a bottle we received as a wedding gift) to go with our Five Guys.  That’s right, we are keeping it classy over here. 😉 Once I got home Matt and I ran to Lowe’s…
