a few of my favorite . . . walls

it may be over done, but i still love the photo gallery walls!
the home print can be found here
and the scripture print here
that "V" has been at least 3 different colors. . . i still might paint it again. suggestions?
possibly my favorite room in the house which is ironic because laundry is my least favorite thing to do in the house!
which is why i made this sign. find it here
and painted a fun bird cage with a bird:)
not sure why i am obsessed with all things monster for my little sugar tot but he has just started noticing these little guys painted in his room. love it!

monster birthday party

remember this invitation? well, since it has been over a month since my little sugar tot turned one, i thought it was time to post some pics of his monster bash.

this was thrown together pretty fast and out of state but with my family so it was just perfect!
tatum's cousins had fun decorating their own monster cupcakes, eating eye-ball jello, lil' sandwiches, fruit, monster cookies and some monster energy drinks.
my AMAZING mother-in-law made him that INCREDIBLE monster quilt!
LOVE it!!!
how big is tatum? soooooooooo big!!
monster birthday invitation and party extras can be purchased here

{armoir} before & after

this beast has been with us through 5 moves in 7 + years and has taken a beating.
it was in desperate need of some tlc so what else is there to do. . .
but paint it?!?

yes, there is a some cumin or garlic salt in my family room
thank you tatum for learning how to open cupboards and rearrange the house.

i just sprayed some tsp on that bad boy, lightly sanded it and started painting it blue.
after the first coat dried, i freaked out a little (as did my husband) because it was very baby blue and would be cute in a nursery or kids room but not our family room!
since, my kids were sleeping and i was desperate to get this done,
i just added some tan, black and maybe a little brown in the paint. . .

and i liked how it turned out!
painting the inside white was not my idea of fun. it took more coats than i cared to count.
i decided to just put some white contact paper down on the shelfs instead of paint.

just love those knobs!
a HUUUUGE thank you to my sister for telling me about polyurethane in a spray paint can!!! saved me hours. . . ok, days of work!

Window Makeover

i got this bad boy from a nice old man on craigslists for . . . 1 buck!
he had tons of them and didn't want them to be landfill.
i started sanding and sanded some more
and some more than decided to just paint over it. . .
and sanded some more.
when i was done antiquing it a bit, i realized it looked pretty much like it did when i bought it.
but, i felt better knowing there was fresh paint on it:)

when i was dating my hubby, he sang (and by sang, i mean sang one line)
of george strait's "i cross my heart" to me. . .
and that sealed the deal:) (that has always been one of my fave songs)

so i thought i would put that line in one of the window pane's
after almost a year of living in our home,
i finally have something hanging over our bed
