We are having so much fun getting this house done! We've been here 5 months now and it is really starting to come together. I have about 20 projects in the works and I'm very excited to show them to you. I'm making a goal to have something new to post about the house most Mondays. Hopefully that will keep my momentum up. You saw my bedroom so far. Lydia's room just needs one more picture framed and it will be ready. The guest room is 90% done (and it is SOOOO darling!)
I finally bought Collin's "big boy bed" bedding, so I am starting on that room next.
Once I have the bedding for a room, I work from that theme.
And I have one of the coolest tutorials ever that I'm hoping I will have done by next week.
This week is our staircase.
I didn't know if I liked the idea of a gallery wall on the staircase. It seemed a little cliche.
But Shane wanted to try it out, so I got the photos framed and he hung them.
He laid them out the way he wanted on the floor, took a photo of it, them measured things out and made nail marks on the walls. That seems a little too, um, "mathy" for me.
Personally, I like the way it was done on Design Crush.
I love the way it turned out!
Keeping it a black and white lets me easily change the living room decor.
And it matches the fireplace mantel. Which I just finished. But you will have to check back in the next couple weeks to see it :)
See that patch of light coming in from the ceiling window? That directly faces into the upstairs bathroom interior window across the staircase, giving it natural light! So cool.
I wanted a combo of lots of different shaped frames. Most of them are from Target and Hobby Lobby.
I may replace one frame with a neon yellow one, just to add a little treadiness for the season. Shane says no. And I laughed that he thought he had an opinion. Silly boy.
Here's the full look.
I noticed I changed up three photos just in the couple days between these shots.
I'm a little OCD that way.
I've already ordered a different photo to go in that hall frame.
Oops. A little impostor.
There's a reason I don't do blogging stuff in the daytime. I usually get interrupted
within about, oh say, 4 minutes.
"Mommy, can you read me this?"
That's okay. It's these kind of moments that make the photo wall possible.
Who wouldn't want to read to this sweetheart! He turns three this week!!!!
