Well my third baby is due to arrive very soon and I am super excited! The room is all set up ready to go and I just can’t wait to hold my precious son or daughter in my arms. We don’t know the gender yet but what I DO know is this pretty nursery is not going to stay all lovely and beautiful like this very long once we bring bub home and the reality of life with three kids sets in….. so I thought I had better take some photos to share on the Blog here with you before sleepless nights and dirty nappies take over! I also want to show you the three simple decorating projects I made to add a bit of personality to the room.
I don’t know about you, but our family seems to use tissues ALL the time. We use them not just for noses but for spills and bumps and all sorts of things. This is why we have ended up with a tissue box in just about every room in the house.
Though you can buy many pretty patterned tissue boxes these days, it is nice to have something that lasts a bit longer and permanently matches in with the room.
Jewellery boards are so pretty and very practical for women of any age……. I really do think every woman and daughter should have one! You can custom design a space to display all your gorgeous hairclips, necklaces, bracelets and earrings. The great thing about it is that it doubles as an art display so you can enjoy looking at all the pretty things even when you are not wearing them!
In today’s tutorial I will show you some jewellery boards I have made plus a few links to some other cool ones I found. I will also walk you through the steps to take if you would like to make one for your self (or your daughter or a friend!).
Your child will ABSOLUTELY LOVE making these three super easy decorations for their bedroom using paint sample cards. My son did. The best part is that they are so cheap to make, they look great, and they can easily be matched up with colours already in your child’s room to help tie the whole look together.
When a special event comes around, it can be hard to think how to make the house look nice without too much effort or cost. Today I wanted to share with you just a few photos from my sister’s baby shower that I helped organise last year (plus a neat trick I learnt for making pink lemonade and decorating cake pops to match colours!).
The room ended up looking so pretty and feminine with a “country kitchen” look, which would be perfect not only for a baby shower but also a wedding, bridal shower or special birthday event. So if you think you might be planning one of these in the near future, read on….
