A Playroom Makeover, Part FINISHED!

We are finally done with the playroom makeover. Remember this - our boring, poorly arranged, cluttered mess?
I'm so happy with the final result.
It is amazing what a little color on the walls can do.
These pictures were taken at night so the color looks a little different.
Notice the Javis Davis floor pillows.
Brown and gold minkee here and a red chenille in the other corner.
At just $55.00 each these made a great addition and add more color and texture.

The huge TV you see in these pictures was not a new purchase. Actually, this is our old TV that has been sitting in storage for a while since it started a loud humming noise and we bought a new one. After doing a little research online, my husband found out that it needed a new color wheel. Just a few hours of time and a $200.00 part and our old TV is as good as new. We are loving movie nights in the playroom now!

Vintage Cowboy

Generally I think it is a good idea to avoid most "themes" when working on a nursery, but one exception to this thought, and maybe this is just a Texas thing, is a good western themed design.

I believe creating a good western theme nursery requires you to steer clear from all the cartoonish and kitschy western fabrics, but yet not be too sophisticated and masculine. Javis Davis has made it easy with their new selection of tasteful, rich fabrics in the Vintage Cowboy collection.
One big advantage of using a western theme in your baby's nursery is the ability for almost all of the accessories and wall art to grow with your child. I used a western theme in my son's nursery and now that he is almost five years old we haven't changed a thing in his room other than taking out the crib and moving in a full size bed.

I recently updated his bedding using fabrics from the Vintage Cowboy collection. The coverlet is Indigo Blue Chenille and the Euro Shams are Lodge Stripe with Indigo Blue Chenille welting.

I was able to incorporate these fabrics with our existing bedskirt. This bedskirt was originally the crib skirt my mom lovingly sewed for me back when I was expecting my baby boy, 5 years ago! (sob...I can't believe how fast five years have blown by)

When I moved my son to his big boy bed I just pieced together all four sides of the crib skirt into two larger sections to fit a full size bed. Since the bed is pushed up against the wall you do not see that the skirt is missing on the wall side and the headboard side. Re-use and recycle!

It was a busy weekend!

Thank you to all that came by to visit me this past weekend at Wolf Fest at EP Rayzor Elementary and at the Lantana Ladies League Vendor's Bazaar at the Golf Club in Lantana. It was so much fun meeting some new ladies in my community. I had a great time sitting next to Mary-Kay from Keeps Me in Stitches and Valerie from Not So Plain Jane at Wolf Fest.

The Lantana Ladies League did a great job of organizing this years vendor's bazaar.

At the end of both events, I held a drawing for a Javis Davis tote in the winner's choice of fabrics. The winner was chosen in the most official and fair way I could possibly think of.

Please do not pay too close attention to my son's dirty fingernails.

Congratulations Tisha! I can't wait to hear what your favorite choice of fabrics are for your tote.

Skip Hop Pronto! Giveaway

When it was time for my son to start solid foods I was so excited to get out our brand spanking new highchair. As a first time rookie parent, I thought "why do we need to bother with these safety straps?", they seemed nothing more than a nuisance... a waste of time. So what did I do? I cut them off! Fast forward three months later and it was then that I realized that my now 9 month old could get himself into a precarious standing position, and maybe cutting off those straps was not such a great idea after all.

With my second baby I was so tired of worrying that she could fall head first out of the highchair so I decided it was time to look for something new. I
really wanted to try the Stokke Tripp Trapp. After searching the web for the best deal, I found CSNBaby offered the best price and shipping, so I bit the bullet and ordered the Tripp Trapp in Walnut.
All I can say is we
LOVE this is well worth the $$$.

When CSNBaby (who carries everything from nursery furniture to toys) offered to sponsor a giveaway on this site I was all about it. I've ordered from them, and I know that their prices, customer service and shipping are great.

Soooooo, long story short, up for grabs is a Skip Hop Pronto! Changing Kit. The Pronto! is everything you need in one small portable package. Drop it in your bag, strap it to your wrist or clip it to your stroller and you’re good to go!
Even better, you get to choose your favorite color combo.

A Playroom Makeover, Part 1

It's been four years since we moved into our house and our neglected playroom needed a serious makeover. With shorter and cooler days approaching, I know that we will be spending more time in the playroom so I decided now is the time to get the ball rolling and get this room finished. Especially since we are now a two kid family which equals twice the junk... I mean toys!
My inspiration for the room came from this fabric (Apache Brick).
I was at Calico Corners one day shopping with a friend of mine and I was immediately drawn to the colors in this fabric. The colors are consistent with the rest of our house, and I thought it would look great in the playroom. I had my neighbor make a window cornice using this fabric, and I matched the wall color with the blue stripe. We used Benjamin Moore 2135-50, Soft Chinchilla.
As with most playrooms, we were in desperate need for additional storage so I was extremely happy to see this media center on sale at Pottery Barn Kids.It is normally $1,149.00, but is currently on sale for $689.99. What a deal! I've ordered it in Espresso to match the Espresso activity table that we already have. For additional toy storage, I have also purchased an inexpensive 5 ft long, two shelf bookcase from a local unfinished wood furniture store. I plan on painting the bookshelf a brick red color which I think will look great up against the blue walls.

To add a few finishing touches, I'm using floor pillows from Javis Davis in these fabrics.

Stay tuned for more details. Hopefully we'll get everything finished soon and I will post photos of the finished room.
