The Bedroom

I came across this bedroom on Pinterest a couple of weeks ago, and it's just been one of those things I've not been able to get out of my head. I've been searching for the perfect paint color for our bedroom for several years actually, and I immediately fell in love with this one named Rainwashed by Sherwin Williams.

So in my credit-card free world, I decided to tally up the cost of everything I'd need to make this room and to start saving for it:

So I'm thinking maybe around $500 to do the whole room. Not too bad for a complete makeover and very doable.It's going to be a welcome change. We've been in our house for five years and I still haven't updated the bedroom wall paint - it's still a lemon yellow that I said I was going to paint over the second we bought the house. In actuality, it's the ONLY room in the house I haven't repainted since we moved in!


  1. I like that bedroom, and that color is so soothing! Good luck!

  2. That is gorgeous! I'm always drawn to those colors.

  3. Ohh, that is basically my dream bedroom! How pretty and calming. And I'm now obsessed with that bench!

  4. SO pretty!! we have a bluish gray in our bedroom :) Great breakdown! You'll have to show your before and after if you do it!

  5. AWE-SOME! I already have the paint color .. now to hunt for the rest... I SO need a re-do!

  6. So glad u shared this. I've been looking for that perfect blue for our bedroom too. You may have just inspired me here.....

  7. What a beautiful bedroom! Love that paint color!

  8. I really love the color of this bedroom and have been trying to convince my hubs that we need a makeover after 7 years and two kids :) I also love your blog and am adding it to Feedly reader. Love meeting other southern bloggers.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!
