One Room Challenge Week 2

For just deciding to start the One Room Challenge last week literally on the day of the One Room Challenge I have to admit things are going pretty good. (Of course that's when things fall apart when you think you're on track.) My husband has been busy working on storage and organization for the closet. I have ordered whatever I needed to online. I've gotten confirmation that everything is on it's way except for the lights. Fingers crossed they're coming.…

Cooper and I are headed to Chicago this month to visit with Sloan and celebrate Coop's 5th birthday. (I'm also hoping for a Cubs game too, fingers crossed.)

I ended up using the same paint color as I did on my daughter's studio apartment this summer. I…

New Hutch

Today I'm super excited because the hutch I found at a local consignment store is being delivered. I've been looking for one for a few months. I originally wanted the one above from Crate and Barrel but just couldn't pull the trigger on the $1,000 price tag. The piece ended up being a little smaller than what I was looking for and after doing some more research I quickly learned big pieces like this don't normally hold their value very well.…
