I think that will be my new nickname for the next few months.
I have such good intentions of blogging often this summer, but something, okay three somethings,
tell me that just might not happen. Therefore, I have decided to just go with the flow for now.
This week, the flow involves football camp, baseball games,
baseball practice, gymnastics, swim team practice and teeter tots camp.
I know there are so many fabulous bloggers out there that can balance taking care of kids, a full time job and blogging regularly. I just don't happen to be one of them.
There, I finally admitted it, I CAN'T DO IT ALL! Wow, it sure felt good to get that off my chest.
What I can do, however, is share a recently completed project with you.
The plan started out like this.....
My client was awesome to work with and she became quite the decorating fanatic
during the whole process. She went on to tackle some pretty fantastic DIY projects on her own.
Just to refresh your memory, here is what the space looked like before....
And here it is now....
This is one of the DIY projects my client took on. It turned out fabulously.
She also made this...
We found an old dresser on Craigslist, she painted it, removed the bottom drawers
and turned it into a great storage piece for her family room.
We had this large lumbar pillow made for her chocolate brown sofa from Crate and Barrel.
We styled her updated bookcases with thrift store finds.
And we sprinkled in a few of her pieces of artwork and family photos.
All of the changes we made very fairly simple and I think the room turned out great.
Such a fresh, inviting space, if I do say so myself!
If you are interested in having me assist you in transforming a room in your home,
or just simply want a little decorating advice, you can email me here for details.
I'll try to keep my summer slacking to a minimum. I hope everyone's summer is off to a great start!
