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.

Basement Bathroom Makeover Update

Meet the tiniest room in my house that has been my biggest design challenge to date. An update on the basement bathroom makeover has been long overdue. Like waaaaaaay long over due. Here’s a quick walk down memory lane. Remember when the basement flooded and we decided since we were forced to renovate, why not gut the bathroom? Well everything came to a screeching halt when it came to one particular detail…the mirror. I know right? It all happened while finishing up Potty Paradise, but didn’t think it would hold me up this badly. But it just goes to show you that design takes time. Don’t rush it…which apparently also goes for naming this space.

That’s right. No one in the house has been able to come up with a good name for this space. We talked about Black Beauty, but that seems basic compared to Potty Paradise. Maybe you’ll have suggestions by the time you get to the end of this post?
