I must admit a few things.
1) My Blake just moved out of my bedroom 2 weeks ago. He is 16 months old.
2) I never actually decorated his room.
Now some people would say who cares? No big deal! Yet, I am a crafty girl at heart and had all kinds of plans for son’s room but never moved on a one. So now that he sleeps in his room I want to give it a makeover. So I was looking for some tutorials on Pinterest to create my own little touches for his room. I found a great tutorial over at domestic adventure. It is pretty and easy all at the same time. Yay!

I am so excited! The time has come to get my closet installed. I decided on my closet system loooonnnnggg ago. It is the Ikea system that I previously have featured in this blog. However I was unable to fit it in any car :(. So I had to wait till I could afford delivery which stunk. But now I will have it and be able to display my new self :).

Honestly, you can really find everythign your little heart desires there!! For instance I love love love upholstered beds. However, as you see my taste typically finds me looking at bed I cannot afford. Much like the ones I posted about before, $1k! Target to the rescue!!!! I found this great eheadboard for only $329!!
Toulouse Velvet Headboard
The drama I love it!!! Plus that is cheap enough to change in a couple of years when I find my husband :-).
How I love their looks . . They are the only store who carries beds that talk directly to me! Here is what I would love . .
It is so wonderful. However very girly and would probably never keep it if I was living with a man. I have a personal thing against very feminine decor when there is a man in residence even if he doesn’t care, I do. Below is where I would go if I had a man in the house.
It is still lush but the lines makes it very gender netural and still very much my style.
Just watched a rerun of Grey’s and noticed the fabulous sheets that were this blue and black paisley. To die for! Here is the closest thing I could find.
Mostly because I am horrible at it! I have high standards, bad technique, and not enough physical energy to finish. Currently, I am working on finishing painting my bedroom. I want dark gray moldings (crown n bottom), a silver accent wall (RL Iron Gate), white ceiling, with pearl white walls. So far I painted the bottom moldings and the side walls. I got one coat of paint on the ceiling and the accent wall. Today I was preparing to paint my crown molding. Yea . . about that . . here is how far I have gotten . .
Yeeeaaahhh, my arms got tired and everything. Tsk, Tsk, Tsk, sad! I really need to up my energy! Want to be let in on the worst of it? I did the worst job ever!! Making sure that I have do extra work when painting the second coat on the ceiling and the accent wall. Look and see for yourself!
I have been painting with a foam brush but now I know I need to go back and paint with a brush. I hate painting with a brush. . Lets not to mention I still need to buy a new can of paint for the accent wall because I don’t have enough paint for the second coat.
Sorry, sorry, sorry, I have been hiding for a while. I moved back in my basement so that I can paint my bedrooom. My Internet is in my bedroom and I haven’t been getting farther than my bed and the kitchen lately. Plus I moved my space heater down stairs which is also why I have been MIA. I did find a camera! That one did not come through on the camera although the text about reconciling with his child’s mother was nice 🙂. Yet I found Mom’s camera so soon I will upload the pics of the the finished painted bedroom.
I am coming to you on a glorious day . . my birthday J! This blog is to be an account of my constant journey. This journey is my growth in style, self, Christ. Along the way I will be sharing all things I find joy in and adore. Hopefully I will help some others in their journey! More importantly I hope that this will keep me focused and honest :-D!
So I will share some of the things that I am working on currently . .
