Project #1- The Headboard

So, a little back story. When we moved into this house in April, the most problem room was the master. Y’all. It. Was. Hideous. The walls were BRIGHT GREEN. Like, sea foam bright green. And not just the walls, but the ceiling!! WHO ON EARTH paints the ceiling?!?!?

Please feel free to click on these photos to enlarge them. You need to truly take in the whole picture. photo 4(8)You thought I was kidding… I was not.

photo 1(9)Oh, and did I mention the purple curtains? Yes. It was like the Little Mermaid. In my master bedroom. It had to go!! The Hubs and I slept in there one night. That was all we could take! We painted the walls a light gray and the ceiling white. Full disclosure, it came out a little lighter than I think I would have liked, but it was a true clean slate from the headache it was before. photo 5(7)And please ignore the mess… Remember we were moving!

The other major issue with our bedroom is that there are windows on three out of the four walls. The wall without the window has the door and closet on it, making the placement of our bed super difficult. We knew what we had to do… cover a window in the most kick butt way possible!

So, six months later, it’s TOM EUBANKS TO THE RESCUE!!!!!

I’ll write another post with instructions for the headboard, but here’s just a few sweet pics of the project! I can’t tell you how beautiful it is 🙂 Like, totally in love. My Dad is the BEST. photo 5(5)

 AAANNNDDDD…… Here is it!!!!

photo 1(8)Isn’t it beautiful? I mean, honestly, it’s just amazing. It covers up the window, ties the room together, and is just… just… perfect 🙂 We still have a few things to add to the room like throw pillows and art on the walls, but I love it to much to wait to share it with you!!

Thanks Dad! You’re the best!!


OSU Move In Weekend(s)

The first day of school looks a little different now than it did a few years ago. I’ve been out a college for a while, so has my middle sister and my youngest sister just started her sophomore year at OSU. A few weeks ago we all met up in Stillwater, OK to help her move into her ADORABLE little house! Mom and I came back the next weekend to shop around and help her finish decorating. We couldn’t have made the hour drive without Mom’s $4 score from Walmart…

B’s BF was so sweet to come up with Stillwater to help her move in. We had a blast hanging out with him!!
