    Easy DIY Bedside Storage Solution for Children’s Room

    My young son used to fall out of bed – a lot! We often heard a loud noise and found him sleeping on the floor instead of in his bed. One of the primary reasons why this happened was because he slept with about 11 massive books! He literally did not have room to sleep. When we put him to sleep for the night, he read books in his bed until he was tired. When he got tired, he just set the books in his bed and fell asleep. Then all night long he rolled over and over the books, until he fell out of bed. What was my solution?…

    Making a Pony Wall Cool Again. And Doing 500 Other Things. ORC Week 3!

    It’s week 3 and I’m starting to see the room coming together! Making a Pony Wall Cool Pony walls, or half walls, are so 80’s….or 60’s….or…..? I’m pretty sure no one said they are amazingly on trend for 2020. Nevertheless, I was on a mission to make my pony wall cool and I got a large piece of it finished this week. It took a lot of measuring, a lot of staining and more time than you might think but I got it done. It matches the trim exactly as I intended. You can see below my stain color test just to make sure that it would all match. Boho…

    Measure 56 Times, Cut Once. One Room Challenge Week 2

    That’s the saying, right? “Measure 56 times, cut once.” Well, that’s what I did when I started working on my pony wall shelving. What’s a pony wall, you ask? It’s a half wall. Google tells me that it’s called a pony wall because if a pony was behind it, the pony could put it’s head over it. Hah. Makes complete sense, right? The Plan If you missed my mood board and layout plans, head over to my week 1 post here to catch up! This week I’ve been focusing mostly on this shelving that will go above my pony wall. My husband says it’s 80’s but if Chip & Joanna…
