May Projects Completed

Most of our May budget and time was spent toward the Master bedroom makeover. I still have lots of work to do on all bathrooms but that must wait. 

I did the pinterest idea of hanging baskets above the toilets to hold linens and I love it.
(one day I will make a solid effort to take better pictures, but that day is not today while 9 mos pregnant and toddler in the tub HA)

I finally found night stands that would work for the bedroom and I love them. They are from Kirklands of all places!

The wooden woven shades came in and add some great texture to the room. I opted not to have them lined as I like all the natural light in the room. They came from Smith + Noble and I can't say enough great things about the quality and ease of installation.

 Before & After shot. It is really hard to get decent pictures of this room with the right lighting.
 Curtains! Whew! I tried for months to find a coral print to make curtains with, then I got all wishy washy about using coral becaise I could find NOTHING, then I kept going back to my pinterest board and noticing how many of my favorite inspiration pics were very monochromatic  rooms so finally I ordered some very basic panels from Ballards with curtain rods from Brentwood Interiors. It immediately changed the look of the room and made it much softer. I am pretty happy with how it all turned out.
 Fulfilling Zulily Orders and other wholesale Grizas orders. That is alot of work and I could not have done it without bubs because those boxes are too heavy and hard to transport. (this is only one days worth of orders).

I made some make shift cheapo doggy gates to keep my dog children from roaming all over the house. Works nicely. When I am more energetic I will sew a better piece of fabric that is heavier.

I made 2 printed pillows of outdoor fabric for the new sofa and had 2  of the existing pillows monogrammed. Love the way that all turned out!

 I sewed some patriotic dinner napkins for our Memorial Party. The Bummer is I need to go back and make about 10 more. ... That is alot of ironing for this chick.

June is here, and that is baby month! Anna Clarke will be here soon and my wonderful family is all in town to help complete several lingering projects like finishing peebs big boy room , hanging pictures, etc. I love it when they show up and make a whirlwind of progress! It is such a great feeling even though I am not doing it myself.

I am also currently in the works of a beautiful blog makeover and I can not wait for that to be complete! It has been a few years since I did any of that and it will be awesome!
