Kelly, as requested here are some pics of a few things I have been doing around the house. I promise I am not moving all this furniture. My dear husband has been moving whatever I ask because he knows it kills me not to be able to do it myself. He is a good, very good, husband. :)
Here is the accent wall I painted (yes, with no voc paint). I obviously am simplifying and downsizing everything in preparation for all the baby gear that seems to take over your life when you have a little one.
Yes, I know the Lazy boy is uggg-lay-ohhhh!!! But all I want is to be comfortable when I nurse baby boy. I never felt comfy when I was nursing Ruth and this chair is awesome for sleeping in and it rocks. When I am done nursing I promise to get rid of it, or secretly hide it somewhere because seriously it is so comfortable.
Every parent needs an art wall for their kids art. It is amazing how much art my daughter Ruth can produce. I found these metal tape strips with strong magnets at where else, The Container Store. I took down all my old black and whites. I was tired of so many things to dust. Again, simplifying my life.
This was my biggest project. I went through all of our books and only kept what we really, really love or what we plan to read in the next year. I bought an extra bookshelf laid them on their sides and then went through the big job of organizing all my fabric. That is right all those white bins are full of fabric. I am officially (with exceptions) on fabric restriction. :) YEAH RIGHT!!!
My desk and work station. This is where I do all my sewing. It has the best light and I like how I can close the curtains when it gets really messy and I don’t have to look at it.
And last, my new favorite thing, framing fabric that I love. I had all those left over black frames from the hall way and I kept some for back up. Again, I have all this fabric that I love and thought it would look so cute framed. I love it! And the best part when I get bored with it I won’t care because it cost me nothing.
