I don't know what got into us, but this spring has been all about the makeover. For Catherine's 11th birthday she got a new room. She was thrilled, and I had a pretty fun time taking a beige guest room and turning it into a tween's solo space. Some items given by family as birthday gifts paired with a few up-cycled things, made this makeover pretty light on wallets without sacrificing a look Catherine loves. I failed to capture photos for the process, but did share a couple before and after videos on Instagram.
In addition to the bedroom revamp, we made over a full set of patio furniture and a piano! I did not fail to snap some pictures as these items transformed, so we'll share them on the blog this week!
Check back this week for part two and three of our spring makeovers.
Oh, and as you can totally tell we are not DIY superstars or home decor experts, please see....well, a million other great design blogs to get your fix. We are a pretty regular family with our own very real budget, time constraints and creativity limitations. Let this short series be a reminder that us Average Joes can get it done, too! And let's give permission to be pretty dang proud of ourselves!
