catching up...




This is our office! We just converted it from our nursery to the office, since our baby is 3 now! My husband decided on how to do the paint treatment (very talented guy) and I picked the color. We painted the whole room bright yellow first and then used the color I picked in glaze. We rolled it on and then "pulled" it off with (of all things) a vacuum cleaner brush attatchment. I think it turned out great. I still have to decide on curtains and would love any imput on colors. I have done all of the drapes in our house and want to do something a little unique but not too complicated in here. Valance? Drapes? Cornice board? What do y'all think???

The closet in the office is my scrapbooking nook. Unfortunately, I don't get much done anymore, but really want to start again. I wanted a place where I could leave all my stuff and not have little hands all over it. I am hoping the get caught up on my project 365, among other things like starting my 3 year old's baby book!


My dad installed a counter for me to use for my scrapbooking and sewing! I love it. Very reasonably priced project for any do-it-yourselfers!









My husband and I painted the room ourselves. He's quite the decorator and I love how it turned out!!





Catching up really quick, this is our boy's room. They LOVE being together! I want to try to get all the other rooms posted too, I have loved this idea kelly came up with and want to catch up with the tour!

you all should see our laundry room. it's got the pleasant aroma of bounce dryer sheets combined with the slightly sour smell of a load of clothes that we forgot to dry the night before, the background sound theme of a roll of pennies loose in the tumbling dryer, the gentle ambiance of flourescent lighting ricocheting off of bright white walls, and the blaring heat that comes with a constantly opening a door directly into a garage smack-dab in the middle of southeast lousiana during the summertime.
