Bedroom Inspiration

We have started the bedroom renovations.....it has been a pretty slow process though. Thought I would share some Inspiration files that I have saved in my bedroom folder.

Our new bedding looks *almost* identical to this one, this one is from pottery barn, so I am guessing the look-a-like that I bought from winners was way cheaper.

We plan on painting the walls grey...much like this room below and having all the trim painted white.
Size wise, this room below is pretty much the exact size and orientation our room will have. We are hoping to find two small dressers for either side of the bed. We will be on the look out at garage sales this summer.I hope to get a couple of these lamps for either side of the bed. They are 19.99 at Ikea...a steal!

Love the colours in the last couple of photo's, so I thought I would add them too.

Sorry I don't know where most of these photo's come from...if they are yours or you know the origin let me know and I will add a link.


Summer goals.

Thought I would write a list of 15 goals I have for this summer. I am really looking forward to this summer, so many things I want to get done this year. We have been having such great weather, and I hope it continues throught this summer!

1. Make-over our master bedroom
2. Have a vegetable garden (already happening and things are growing good...so far)
3. Trip to the zoo
4. Paint the Barn
5. Build a piece of furniture
6. 3 camping trips
7. Get rid of stuff...lots of stuff, so that I don't have to watch myself on hoarders one day.
8. Read 10 books.
9. Shed some pounds.
10. Start renovating the kitchen.
11. Scrapbook 15 pages
12. Make a photo wall going up my stairs.
13. Sew something besides scrapbook pages.
14. Make a good homemade ice tea
15. Have fun. :)


Family Pictures.

Thanks to this brilliant gal http://www.wmacphotography.com/ we have some great family photo's. I love the way they turned out, especially the ones of the kids. They are so adorable....I know I am their mom and mom's always say that but honestly they are ;) haha.
I wanted to share a few of them.

Thank you Wendy, I can't wait to hang some of these pictures around the house!


Give thanks...

Thanksgiving is a time of good food, family get togethers and beautiful scenery. This weekend was filled with all of that.
Grandma made all the kids candy apples.....so they were very grateful for that ;)

Even Isaac got a chance to try a candy apple for the first time. I am pretty sure he loved it. Who doesn't love them right?


Too cute not to post.

Here is Isaac with the neighbours lab puppies...they are adorable (the dogs and the baby). It was too cute not to post. Brad has been bugging me that we should buy one of these adorable puppies. With three kids, two dogs, two cows, 6 laying hens, one husband, and a partridge in a pear tree I have all that I can handle for the time being!

The before...

I actually fotgot to get a real before. So this picture is more of a before we started painting. Brad had already emptied the room before the pictures were taken, but you get the idea of how ugly it was.
Here is my lovely sister that came over to help me paint it.

Because the bathroom is under construction the baby had to bathe in the kitchen sink. He didn't seem to mind though! He had a blast, and I was able to putter around the kitchen a bit while he was having his bath, it worked out really well!


Procrastinator's Party.

This party invitation from Melissa at the inspired room couldn't have come at a better time. We (mostly me)have been wanting to redo the upstairs bathroom since we have moved in. With the wedding in the summer we have been busy so now is the perfect time to get things done. Can't wait.

This picture is my colour inspiration. We also have a claw foot tub that I plan on painting the underside of just like this one.

We have an old face mount sink sitting in the barn that we are dying to use in this bathroom. We also plan on doing chair rail trim and doing a two tone paint job. I don't have everything I want to complete this bathroom but I have enough to get it started and over the next few months I will look for all the finishing touches to complete the transformation. Wish me luck!
I will post a before picture of the bathroom in mention soon. Stay tuned!
