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.
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.
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. 🙂
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.
Both prints were instant downloads from Etsy
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.
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!
I have made some slight adjustments in each room over the course of the past months. After seeing my recent images in contrast to what I have on the House Tour tab……I need to get those updated. So here are some of the things that are different.
Archer photobomb!!! and I still haven’t gotten Dave to help me with the corners of our entry – fail.
The Dining Room
The Master bedroom
and seeing the curtains I have up in these pics, just convinced me to change them out. Seriously!
Here is a sneak peek at the changes I have made in Jane’s room.
I have a bunch of small items to touch on going forward: master bedroom curtains, entry paint touch up, library clean up and art revamp, replace black fridge with a white one, etc.
That should keep me busy for a bit. 🙂
