Third time’s the charm??….2011

Sooo….for my 34th birthday Ben had asked “what would you like for your birthday?” Well, I said…I would love a new living room. Hehe !! It took us a while to think of what color and we picked or…I picked a turquiose type color. A very, very BOLD color! I love it. Here is some of the begining steps. So a eight month project so far and not even FAR from being done! So there’s been alot of changes and moving around, and everything else!!

 This area needs ALOT of work. I’ve been working on the hallway and the entrance area. We ended up getting these desks and tables for 30 bucks on CList. They have come in very handy. Talullah loves grabing the paper from the wall and color. It’s a great craft table and kitchen table. It’s where we all eat too !!! I’m hoping later to make this area a bit….nicer.

I got this table at the thrift store for like $10.00 and the kids would climb and sit on this but alas…changes. This spot has been changed at least 3 times. At first I wanted to put a bookcase on the walls and a small light so ellisi could read and for christmas I got them little orange vinyl couch and chair with white tree decals with a cute small sheep skin rug…….
Image
These were the couches I was talking about and the rug…It was a cute idea but they never would use them!!! They said they couldn’t see the T.V. Oh well…Changes!!!
Image
I love collecting old suitcases because they hid toys !! Great storage ideas. So last week I got some new chairs and couch (new to me) from CList and so arrange time it is AGAIN !! But this time I FINALLY !!! put up some art work….Frames from thrift stores and IKEA. Art from ETSY.com and my own children’s stuff =) My little artist. So far I LOVE LOVE this setup. There is a small 2 tier sidetable that I picked up also on CList for 15 dollars. =) The top tier hold books and a stunning hot pink horse from Mahzer and Vee on Etsy. I also have a cute hedgehog (that ellisi named Mr.Hedge) also the white deer up on the wall. I love their stuff !!! The bottom shelf I use to charge my iPad and laptop. I love that it could be hidden. In one of the frames I found a paper Ellisi once wrote me that she’s super exited to see the baby and drew a picture of her and the baby holding hands. I love it !!! These 2 photos are after the 3rd time!
Image
This wall took me 3 times….I litereally took ALL the items off the wall again and again…I stop using screws cause there’s soo many holes and so little nails it is !!!
