I have been putting a little TLC into sprucing up my kid’s playroom. You know…so it is is more than just a room that threw up Legos and Barbies. My sister-in-law actually wanted me to make her the oversized Pottery Barn Kids vintage flashcards for her playroom. I did that this summer and had to make them for our playroom as well. I love the clean look and how large they are – which covers a lot of wall on the cheap.
I gave you a peek at this Pottery Barn Kids Stanton Collection knock-off last week when I revealed Isaac’s Black and Green Industrial bedroom makeover. It is the perfect place to keep track of the school calendar, awards and coupons won from school, some basic school supplies, birthday invites, etc. We are really trying hard to continue to give Isaac more responsibility when it comes to his knowing his schedule so this seemed like a good step in that direction.
I am absolutely thrilled with how my DIY stained wood shim mirror turned out. I know there are a zillion tutorials out there for making mirrors like this. However, I think I am the only crazy one that sanded and stained 315 wood shims. That part was not for the weak of heart. Me-oh-my! But I love it, I love it, I love it and don’t regret the decision for one minute!
As I was perusing through the Pottery Barn catalog one day, I came upon a photo with this flower trough centerpiece with beautiful hydrangeas sitting on it. It immediately made me think of the old pile of fence slats that I trash-picked inherited from my neighbor. I knew it would be simple and free to recreate.
