Mudroom refresh

I wanted to pop in today and share some changes that I recently made to our mudroom. 

The walls were looking a little beat up from the constant traffic this small room gets, and I was over the yellow paint. For around $80.00 I was able to give the room a little refresh. 

Step one was paint... I used leftover paint from my daughters bedroom. The color is Graceful Gray by Behr and I love it (I've used it in several rooms in our home).

Step two was the fun part...decorate! I took everything that was previously there out and started fresh. I added the FAMILY sign over our coat rack from Michael's. On the opposite wall I hung a mail/paper organizer and key holder both from Hobby Lobby. I also replaced all the name tags on the baskets with chalkboard tags from Michael's. 

This was the first project I've done in awhile and it felt great! Something about the smell of fresh paint just makes me happy. 

If you would like to see before pics and the building our mudroom you can find it all here.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.

Master bedroom entertainment wall

Oh my goodness, I don't even know where to start this blog post. I'll begin with apologizing for taking such a long blogging hiatus. I've been busy working on items for my Etsy shop and honestly I haven't really completed anything I felt blog worthy. I know that's no excuse for not dropping by but sometimes I think it helps to step away from blogging for awhile (atleast for me).

Any way I wanted to share a little updating that my husband and I have been doing in our master bedroom. Let me start by stating that our room is large approximately 19' x 20' . On the wall opposite our bed we had an old school television and entertainment center. I know some couples prefer not having a TV in the bedroom, but we are not one of those couples! 

My husband finally decided he'd had enough and purchased a bigger television for our room (when I first saw it I thought he was crazy). We mounted it on the wall and then built a long table underneath to hold our cable box, DVD player and other items. We used the plans from Liz Marie blog. It was easy and inexpensive to make (win win). Then to complete the wall and hide two white outlets above the TV I made a large wood sign.

Here is the new wall.



I wasn't sure about adding the brown wood tones to our gray and white bedroom, but I love it now. Later this summer I hope to add some more on the other side of our room to tie everything together.

If my budget allows I have some other small projects I would like to get done this summer while I'm free (no babysitting). I promise I'm not going to drop off the face of the earth again (atleast not right now).

Thanks for still following and hanging in there with me!
