Hello All! I hope you have been making headway in the 40 Bags in 40 Days challenge. I must say I'm quite pleased with myself and can't wait to attack more junk. But in an effort to not have this be 40 Day Central, I decided to share my first big project for this year with you. And it is.... (drumroll please) ..... The Boy's Room!!!!!
I'm so excited to be able to start this project! It's been a long time coming and I can't wait to get started. I have been Pinterest crazy these last few months getting ideas for all sorts of projects for around the house. I've started a mood board with Olioboard using my first inspiration piece, my son's onesie. I love the bright and playful colors and how they can be tailored to each of the boys; light shades for the nursery side and the darker shades for the "big boy" side. Here's how my board looks now. Keep in mind it's a work of progress, the pictures are just up there I'll arrange them later; AND my first mood board:
Tomorrow we will be going out to start looking for furniture for our oldest's big boy side. While surfing the web a week ago I came across a consignment sale hosted by a local mom group Northern Virginia Parents of Multiples they do it each year and are said to have a great turn out each time. I hope will either be able to snag a bunk bed or trundle bed so that when Chipmunk gets older we won't have to purchase anymore furniture. Along with whatever else I can find. I asked my husband to come along with me in an effort to keep myself grounded and on budget.
I will also be taking the bottom storage part of the old bed frame that we are getting rid of and making a storage bench like the one I found here by making a cushion top. My mother gave me the idea of using outdoor fabric to cover the cushion when I was racking my brain trying to figure out what type of durable fabric I could use. So needless to say I will be elbow deep in some colorful types of fabric soon.
Well gotta hit the hay the sale starts at 9am....
