I caught the decorator's bug...

Well, I guess you could say that I always have it.  It just went a way for a while.  That is why I have slacked at blogging some.  I have been doing some things in my room, and then doing new rooms for my kids.  I am not completely finished with the kids rooms.  However, I thought that I would give you all a


I hope this leaves you wanting more.  There are lots of pictures, but it is all the little Details.  The full scope of the rooms to come soon.

Boy's Room


My kids bunk beds were originally pine, but I wanted them black so I painted them.


I found these pictures at an Antique store for $3 the date on the back says 1913.  My friend Paige also took some of them.

I painted their room a gray color.  It is hard to tell in this photo.

Sweet Dreams.


I will explain more in detail all that I did when I finish them up.  I am hoping by mid-week I will have some photos of the whole scope.

Girl's Room


Stella's Bed 

I found this green pin at an Antique store, and could not pass it up.  It adds so much.


Tessa's Bed

(oh by the way, we plan to name her Tessa)


I found an old robe at an Antique store.  It was the perfect color of chenille fabric, and in great shape. I made the throw pillows, and this throw out of it.

I have since added pink beads to this lamp shade.  I have two of these lamps that I found for a steal at an antique store, $16 for both.


Homemade chandelier out of an old bird cage that I already had.  Christmas lights, a candle, and a lamp shade with a light kit.  I already had the shade, light kit and bird cage so this was CHEAP!!



Lots of glass knobs.  I used them to hang things, they are on Stella's Vanity.  Also on her curtain rod, and curtain tie backs.

This is the baby's Changing Table.  It is the same on that I have used for all the kids, but I painted the baskets white.  I am also working on making this cover for the pad out of two towels that I found at TJ Maxx for $4. 

Well there you have it, a small preview.  I can't wait to show you the whole thing, and tell you about all the deals that I found.  It all just fell in to place with these two rooms. 

I hope you enjoyed your sneak peak.  I can't wait to show you what other changes have been going on around here.

Decorating is so addicting, and yet so relaxing at the same time.

Can I please tell you that I am so jealous of your ability to decorate! Seriously! I can't wait to see how your rooms turn out. I love your house and I know that they are going to look AMAZING!

Way cute! I wish that I was able to have such creative ideas like you! It is so amazing that you find all of these good deals but then you know how to piece them together perfectly!

Well I have mainly seen the full scope and they turned out adorable. I had the decorating bug at one point but then it never came back...kinda sad. Maybe one day when we get into a house and it is a blank canvas I will start up again.
