Lego Tooth Fairy

Tuesday, June 3, 2014

I usually blog about decorating, but today I am taking a little detour.

My oldest, Mason lost his second tooth yesterday and was plotting with one of my neighbors on how to catch the tooth fairy.  This was better than his first plan which was to shoot down the tooth fairy with a bow and arrow!

I thought it would be fun to booby trap a Lego Tooth Fairy instead.  She is part Lego Friend (Mom has to have some Lego Friends to play with!), part Chima Eagle, her hair was borrowed from Thor and the dollar is in Wonder Woman's Lasso. I just worked with what we had.  

Don't worry, I heard she already escaped and will be flying around again tonight!

Mini Foyer Update

Sunday, May 18, 2014

I hope you had a great weekend.  I had a fun girls night out on Friday in Downtown Raleigh, barbecued with great friends on Saturday, then did a little DIY today.

I painted the front door grey to give the foyer more color.  We eventually plan to paint (I mean hire some pros) this two story foyer.  But this was a quick, easy and free fix since I used leftover paint.

Should I paint the trim on the transom window too?

Bedroom Update

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Our Master Bedroom has been an ongoing project.  We made an upholstered bed, hung curtains, a mirror, and brought in our dressers. But it still needs a lot of work.  Let's be real, our whole house needs work!

You can see in the reflection in the mirror the unpainted crown molding.  We have lots of crown that needs to be painted.  The weather has been way too gorgeous to be inside painting though. 

The bedroom corner has been calling for a chair and little side table.  We are looking to have a beachy vibe in the space without it screaming THEMED Beach room.  

Then I saw the World Market ad that featured this chair.  I knew it was what our room needed.  Now we just have to go and get it. 

I would also love to have inlaid shell lamps like these I found at TJ Maxx.

I can't justify buying new lamps when we already have a pair of great lamps.  The room also needs art.  The walls are completely bare! I am constantly drawn to ocean abstracts like these.

Boys room inspiration

Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there.  My boys have spoiled me rotten!

Yes, that is a box with an MK bag and a watch.  I have been torn between two colors so my awesome hubby wrapped one of each for me to decide.

Last night the whole fam went out to Southpoint.  I love to get inspiration from PB Kids. Here were some of my favorites:
