Disclosure: The Beddy’s Bedding I am reviewing was not free but I did get a discount. I am receiving no compensation for this product review and all opinions are 100% my own.
As you know, we recently transitioned my daughter out of her crib and into a twin bed. We took the twin bed out of my son’s room and got him a queen bed. This may not seem like a big deal but let me tell you, it tipped the balance on the whole bedding laundry situation completely out of control. I am annoyingly anal about washing all the bedding in the house every 2 weeks. For some reason, adding that queen bedding in the mix and and having to not only wash it but then make all those beds was pushing me to edge of sanity. A few of the blogs I follow have been raving about Beddy’s Bedding and I was intrigued. Basically, you put it on like a fitted sheet and the comforter is attached. You can zip down the sides to get in. In the morning, zip up the sides and your bed is made!
I am switching up some decor for the summer. Sometimes I find it tough to decide what decor to use in the summer. Usually after the holidays I try to declutter the place after I take down all the Christmas madness. It feels great to do that in January. But by the time April and May come around, I kind of miss all the holiday cuteness. I wanted to infuse something easy and fun into my bookshelf in our living room for summer and decided some camp printables would be perfect. (Now don’t go getting the wrong idea and think I love camping. No worries, friends. I am still the same person you have always known. I just happen to think that camping things are cute. And our summers now include 1-2 camping trips with the kiddos, you know, for creating memories;))
I am a big fan of industrial accents. In fact, the plan is to build a pipe and wood desk and bookshelf unit for my son’s room sometime this year. I recently updated his room, which you can see here. But I still wanted to switch up the lighting a bit. Now, I love all those industrial lights out there but the problem is that they don’t always give off a whole lot of light. So I decided to do my own DIY industrial light and it only cost me a $1!
I love miniature models of things. So it is not surprising that I am kind of obsessed with little fairy/gnome gardens. I could NOT WAIT until my kids were old enough to help me make a gnome garden. I was having a great time buying little bridges, chickens and grills. I created a whole Pinterest board pinning adorable ideas. But I found myself putting it off. Why? We will go off on a little tangent here, but bear with me.
I was struggling as to what to put in one of the corners of my daughter’s room. Her room is very small and space is at a premium. However, I wanted her to have a space where she could play and enjoy. So when I came across the blog Zevy Joy (this post) and saw the DIY canopy that she created, I knew that would be perfect! She made her daughter’s just a little different so I did include the steps that I took to make my canopy here. Besides, can there really be enough tutorials on how to make a DIY canopy out there?
