Details in Jules’ Room

I began accumulating items for Jules’ room in December and I feel like I have come far enough to post about where we are today.

Here was where I started with the inspiration.

I am not sure why I had the pink in there nor why I was so on the fence about changing it to a teal.  I was set enough to start purchasing the teal as I was making that inspiration board!  Jeez girl.

**All of the pink went to Jane.  Jules only ended up with the pink as she found this blanket, that I had stored for Jane, and claimed it for herself……cuz it is crazy soft.  but not to worry – that teal blanket below is just as soft. 

We kept all the art from her Montana room.

She is super jazzed that everything is up on the walls and that her fairy lights are up.  The room is very small but it is the only one with a closet and that’s what was most important to her.

Jules’ Room Part Deux

I updated Jules’ room before we left Montana and she was very sad to leave it behind.  See Jules’ Room in the Montana House Tour.  Now that we are getting settled into the Prairie Victorian I have been pulling together some images of what I would like to do for her room here.

The most striking item is the giant wall clock.  It remains to be seen as to whether Jules would actually say yes to it – but it a super cool feature in this proposal.  also that super cute furry bone bunny is just such an out of the ordinary piece…I had to add it in.  Our family loves Halloween, its just a slight nod.  I might also switch out the pink for a teal.
Jules liked the artwork in her previous room, so I will start with those and build from there.  This is what I had in her room before

Sometimes I think to myself – my poor family, they have to put up with constant changes in the house, me always asking if they are ok with how their rooms look…secretly crossing my fingers that there is something that they want to change.  And if they don’t want to change anything, me thinking up a reason to surprise them with something new.  Does that make me a lunatic?  Probably.  I am surprised Dave hasn’t lost it, especially when he comes home from a work trip and opens a drawer in the kitchen to find hand towels instead of our silverware or has to search for the plates for the umpteenth time in our marriage.

They must really love me.  🙂

Guest Bathroom – Finished

After long last the upstairs bathroom is done.  Yahoo!!

Recap:

Whew.

First photo of the bathroom for this blog.  ehh.

And here we go –

to start with – the tile!  sigh.  It matches the entry landing, the basement landing and the basement bathroom.  It is so awesome to walk through the house and feel that kind of consistency.

don’t worry – that side edge of the vanity below has since been cleaned up.

So bright- squinty.

The paint is up, the trim is in, the vanity is in (so gorgeous and shiny white).   I also decided to go with a vintage-y looking mirror to contrast the ultra sleek vanity.

I know I keep saying it – but seriously……2013!!!  That is when I started this thing. And now its done.  I am so excited to be able to cross this off my list.

Basement Bathroom Update

We have been slowly working on this bathroom in between Dave’s work trips.  A lot has gotten done, but we still have a bit to do.

This pic is right after the shower was installed.  months ago

Our next move was to build a niche for the toilet behind the shower.  Drywall – ARG.  No fun.  Dave was very dusty for a few days.

 

We are currently working on getting the cedar planks up on the ceiling.  Reminder:  We put the same planks on the ceiling in the Master bathroom.  and we are planning on the same ceiling in the Guest Bathroom upstairs…..say what???  continuity….I know, I am getting all crazy in here.

Since we are working an inch at a time, I have decided to distract myself with an art search.  I would like something to hang above the toilet.  What should it be?

I am all over the board with this (as always).  A few years ago I was given an Antler Toilet paper holder (you can barely see it in the double toilet picture up above), so I would at least like to make it somewhat make sense.

I also like almost everything made by GrittyCityGoods.  They are responsible for the piece in my Master Bathroom.

I have always wanted to try my hand at a graffiti style spray paint piece.

What should I do people?????

Friday Wrap Up 11

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving with those that you love.

Jules and Jane wrote incredibly sweet notes for everyone.  **sniff**

In house news, the stairs to the chicken coop are complete.  At the end of the last post we still had a few things to finish up in order to call this done for the winter.

The final stair is in and the bush under the window has been moved.

A layer of concrete has been installed upon the upper tier.  We have had snow since this picture and let me tell you…..what a relief to be able to make it to the chickens without worrying about slipping down the hill.  clutz

I will be focusing on the basement for the next few months – bathroom and family room.  I need to settle on furniture placement and art before I can say I am done with the family room.

Here are some inspiration shots:

I am all over the board with this.  hahaha   wish me luck.  🙂

Friday Wrap Up 9

Movement happening on some of our home projects. Yeah!  I will be updating the House Tour tab with the pictures below.

Jules asked to make some changes in her room.  When Jules and Jane split rooms, this is what it looked like:

Jules picked out the bedding and pillows herself, but a few years down the line, she was not happy spending time in her room.

Here is where we are right now.  Still a work in progress, but Jules is much happier.

  • Toy chest went from a bright red to a denim blue.
  • Bedding changed  from the red and white polka dot to a shabby chic floral.
  • Art changed to reflect the new colors.

The one thing we are not sure about is her Art Cart.  All of her art supplies are housed here – but it is very awkward.  It does not really fit anywhere in the room.  This will probably change in the future.  hahahaha – silly me.  everything changes in this house.

Our walkway from the driveway to the house has also been improved.  Here is the before:

Winter is coming.  hehe  I did not want to have another winter where I needed to pick my way through the rocks to my front door, so Dave made it a priority.  Goal – get it done before the first snow flies.  We loaded up and headed to Home Depot to get our supplies.

End result:

We are still working on the finishing touches.  If you look in the above photo the first stair needs to be completed and trimmed out.  Outside of those small details –  the Goal was met.  Snow came this week:

Have a great weekend Peeps!

Blue Mountains over Purple Water

Another painting down.  It’s been awhile since I had a painting to post but I had some in between that were slated for other people.

This painting brings me back to relaxing in the middle of the lake with mountains on all sides of us.  There were no other people on the lake and no wind.  So still.  What a great time to look around and really enjoy your environment.

Blue Mountains over Purple water

Big, open skies and this definitely fits the bill.

and those mountains.
