I find the best ideas on Pinterest. There are so many cute home decorating ideas that I want to implement in this house. I thought perhaps if I blogged them, I’d feel more obligated to actually do them… plus then Aaron will see what I’m talking about! (Click them all to see the source)
I pin huge ideas that would require more money than we have, or perhaps owning the home… but these are the simple ones that I can do here in base housing, and put my own spin on them.
I’ve already bought the curtain rod, frames, and ribbons. I just haven’t decided where I want it or what photos. I purchased several different sized frames.
We have two cribs in our garage. I want to do this with one of them- but I’m thinking of making the top a wooden train table for the boys for now. I figure later on we can turn it into a desk, but right now they LOVE the trains at Barnes & Noble and I think it would be an awesome Christmas gift.
I want to do this in Lili’s room, with ribbons that are the colors of her bedding- or maybe even tulle and it will look like a window tutu.
And speaking of Lili’s room, I also want to make her a pinboard to put over her desk. Not blue like this, but I love the frame and bunting. I’d use browns and pinks to coordinate with her room. I think I’d rather have fabric in it instead of the chicken wire.
For the twins, I love these frames with the names inside over their beds. I’d use boy fabrics to match their bedding though.
Both girls and the boys have bookcases in their rooms that don’t match anything. I’d love to repaint and do this with them to coordinate with their rooms.
This one I started as well. I bought the frame and the poster board to cut out the letters, but haven’t taken the photos yet. It was originally going to be Aaron’s birthday present, but his birthday was back in July… oops.
Alright- now I should feel held accountable since I made my plans public!
