We moved into our current home 6 months ago. Before we moved I spent time perusing Pinterest looking for the perfect paint colors, furniture arrangement, and so on. I was so excited to get into our house and get settled so that I could begin all of the projects!
Of course unpacking took up most of the summer, and then school started and progress on the house came to a halt. Now that the holidays are over and things are slowly returning to normal I’m finally going to start tackling projects. First up- the kids’ rooms.
My younger daughter’s room is mostly done and my son’s room is getting there. My older daughter has ideas for her room, and since she is almost 9 I want to make sure she has a room that she can love for years to come. I love to make design boards for each room- it helps me to figure out what direction I want to go in each room. This is one I made for my son’s room:
He is almost three and still in a crib for now but this helps me see what his big boy room might look like when it is finished. We already have several of the items pictured above: the rocker, the wall art, clock, curtains, and green gingham accessories. I enjoy keeping this collection on my computer and adding to it now and then. If you don’t want to do it on a computer you can also just tear out pictures and create a design board that way.
I hope to be busy the next few months working on some room makeovers. Here are a few house goals for 2015:
1. Finish younger daughter’s room: paint desk, paint chair, hang up shelving, hang curtains
2. Finish son’s room: hang shelves, possibly paint the walls, hang artwork, shop for bedding for twin bed
3. Work on older daughter’s room: paint walls, paint desk and chair, organize shelves, buy and hang new light fixture, new bedding, new headboard (possibly build this)
I will share the progress as I work towards these goals this year. I will also share the design boards for the girls’ rooms as well as pictures. If you would like to try and make a digital design board, there is a great tutorial here. Good luck!
