Little Boy Bedroom – Dueling Kids’ Rooms

Last week I chatted with you about finally decorating the kids’ bedrooms. Since we always treat them fair, I’ve decided to get a bit nutty and tackle both room makeovers at the same time — which are presently a random mish-mosh of chaos. Pretty much bare bones and literally zero personality. Shame on your momma. The storage doesn’t work for them, metal bed frames, and they have nothing hanging on the walls — although they do have a few pieces I’ll be working with.

Little Girl Bedroom — Dueling Kids’ Rooms

My children have been neglected…well, I should clarify…their bedrooms have been neglected.

I really liked the direction it was going and finished it within a couple hours. Holy moly it actually looked pretty good!

We Got A New Sofa – With Jonathan Louis

This post is sponsored by Jonathan Louis. 

Today I have a before and after furniture reveal that is pretty much mindblowing. A while back, I wrote about a quest for the perfect TV watching sofa. When we first moved into the house, I had purchased a vintage sofa with the thought process of it’s: used, it already has dents and dings, and I won’t be sad when my kids wreck it. That thought process lasted for exactly 4 months.

Before and After Living Room Makeover Reveal with Jonathan Louis

After daily use, there were 3 new holes in the beautifully patinaed leather and my son had used his fingernail to scratch words into the back side of the leather. It was also sat through and incredibly uncomfortable with its shlumpy cushions. I had made a design disaster, and we needed a new sofa…badly.
