Room Inspirations

Oh, it's Friday!  I'm sitting here at my kitchen table with my "nasty" green juice and a cup of tea while Gus loads alphabet blocks onto a flatbed truck via skid steer and Greta sits up tall in her Bumbo seat, snuffling through her first cold (I want to say, "Blow!" but it won't do any good!!).  The past few days has seen me running up and down the stairs a million times with laundry and clothes and bedding and toiletries as we move from the upstairs bedroom to our now basically finished master bed and bath.  Just some finishing touches left and I'll be sharing that with you.  This will continue as we move Gus into the bedroom we were just in, my "office" (work room) into Gus's old room, and Greta into my old work room.  It's exhausting just thinking about it, but I'm so excited to finally have things in place and possibly actually decorated.

Things I'd like to do:

Greta's room:

Embroidery hoops (source)

Alphabet cards (source)

Monogram wreath (source)
Update!  They are celebrating their one year shop anniversary!

Gus's room:

Ikea spice rack hack (source)

or

Oh, Martha. Bedroom organizer. (source)

I'd prefer the Ikea hack but apparently so does everyone else because every Ikea is out of those spice racks and they don't sell them online.

That's about as far as I've gotten for him. There aren't as many boy ideas out there as girls, unless you check out Pottery Barn Kids, of course, but my checkbook checked it out and ran the other way.  Ideally I'd like to find some kind of trucks/machines printables, so if anyone has any ideas on that, please let me know.

As for my work space:




Oh, wait.  That was me dreaming.

Well, I have some fun ideas for the space anyway.  I'm really looking forward to getting the upstairs in order (finally!!), finishing the master project, and then it's on to the hallway and living room.

What are you working on in your house?  Have any fun inspirations?  Hoarding any Bekvam spice racks by any chance?

  1. Loooooove the embroidery hoops and fabric. We are a little ways away from decorating as I'm only 7 weeks along, but when the time comes, if it's a girl, that's definitely on my list or something like it. I love the clean way of displaying fun fabrics!

    Also-- I have a craft room dream board on Pinterest because it will be the thing I complete once my kids' college is paid off in 2032 but at least the dreaming is fun. So keep doing it!

  2. I love it all! And yay for finishing the longest room transformation ever! Is that first work room picture actually a kitchen? I see a sink... although, that could actually be a really smart addition to a studio.

  3. This is the second time I've seen those alphabet cards, and they're so cute! I also love that bookshelf you found. As for your workspace...Yep, I have that same dream, I think! =) Have a great weekend.

  4. Love the hoops in first pic. too sweet.
    love the rack too. I bet you could easily make your own with some skinny wood trim and dowels. Get your Martha on!

    I tagged you in today's post on the muse. Feel free to play along if you'd like!

  6. We are renovating EVERY room in the house! Lol, we just closed on our first house so we are getting all the renovating/updating finished before we move in, just seems easier that way lol. The two biggest time consumers are the bathroom and kitchen, once those are completed everything else is mostly painting and flooring so it will take no time. I cant wait to see pictures of your updates!
