Remember the week when the kids were gone to my inlaws for the week? And how we weren't sitting around doing absolutely nothing because I have a problem with doing nothing? So instead of relaxing I whipped Matt into helping me re-do not one, but both kids rooms? Yeah, he was super not excited but who cares!
This is Olivia's room before.
With a shit ton of purple paint and other craftiness, here is here after.
Oh yes, and got Matt to diligently put her Polly Pocket wall stuff back on.
And then Jackson's room before.
Another thing I did was replace these things I had made for them years ago- like when Jackson was in toddler class. It was on construction paper and they both loved them, but they were basically falling apart. So I decided to use some random IKEA frames I found while moving.
Of course, I failed to get a finished picture of it. But I just typed out my answers and put a picture of me with them on the bottom and framed it. Easy peasy. They both have it on their side tables and were thrilled I was able to do that for them since they were both bummed their originals were falling apart.
So that's it. It took us an entire week to do these rooms from start to finish. And of course, the week they are gone is always the week in which things disappear- so I purged a lot, sorted through clothes that don't fit them anymore and organized everything since it hadn't been done since we've moved. Overall? I think they came out really well.
Maybe next week I'll show you my front porch and how I actually finished a Pinterest project and it turned out how it was meant to.
