Spring Break & Furniture Makeovers

stoolmakeover

This morning the kids are back to school after a week off for spring break. We didn’t do anything special- just lots of playing and quality time together. Arizona winters are so beautiful so there is no burning desire to get out of town. We’ll save our vacations for summer when it becomes scorching hot!

I took the kids with me to Goodwill over Spring Break. I was on the hunt for a stool and after finding the most amazing stool for $4.99 the kids found some fun things too. Harper got a hot pink Barbie car & new clock and Rex got some dinosaurs, a Ninja Turtle, a mini motorcycle,and some toy trees to put together. I also picked up some colorful hangers and the little green bin you see in the picture below. All in about $22!

I decided to paint the stool a minty green color and put some little crosses on it. (Inspired by the Bobo Choses Spring/Summer collection.)

Since I couldn’t paint just 1 piece of furniture, I decided to paint a nightstand that was left at our house by the original owners. It has been sitting in our garage since it didn’t really work for us in it’s present state. I went with a pink/peach color:

Both paint colors were by Behr: Aqua Bay & Full Bloom

Rug Options for Girl’s Room

Hi there, Irene from designstiles today, sharing some rug options for a little girl’s room I’ve been working on.

The pink striped rug currently in the room needs to be replaced and below are some of the options I was considering before re-visiting the room to determine new rug size. While I love these rugs, they weren’t right for this room but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be shared.

The bed was recently moved perpendicular, parallel to the wall where the dresser stands in order to have more floor space for play time.

one – I love the large scale pattern and color of this one. It’s indoor/outdoor which makes it extra durable but we need something more plush.

two – pretty lace motif, but need more color contrast since it’s very similar in color to the grasscloth wallcovering and roman shades.

three: gorgeous color. You can practically feel the richness through your computer screen but the circular pattern, I feel, clashes with the bedding.

four: this one is adorable but the room isn’t wide enough for the rug to lay horizontally in order to showcase heart accurately. And the smaller size is too small for the room.

Have a favorite?

Will hopefully soon share the rug we chose.

Happy Wednesday!

Last week I got a sneak peek at the new Dreamcatcher Collection by Taylor Joelle Designs. The colors are super fun/vibrant for spring, and the styles are perfect for Easter & Passover but also easy to wear for a casual Starbucks date with your little girl! Harper is wearing the Yellow Tutu Dress. It is super lightweight/comfy and she was running around the backyard with her brother in this dress after some quick pictures! P.S. MAJOR SALE RIGHT NOW: 35% off!

If you are not familiar with Taylor Joelle Designs, I must also HIGHLY recommend their Teething Necklaces. They are AMAZING! Check um’ out below:
