Too Early for Valentines?

I started decorating for Valentine's Day this week.  Since it is still January, I didn't want to do much.  But I am loving all the banners all over

I made this little cutie for my front door wreath.
I started by printing off a design from I should be Mopping the Floor.  I then realized my printer was out of colored ink.  So I thought it was a fail...until I looked again and realized I had a nice neutral grey color.   SCORE!
I had some hearts in my scrapbooking stash that I hadn't used and I thought they worked well.

A little twine and glue and I had something pretty darn cute!

Happy Valentine's Day

O.M.G.!!! Love the Blog World

I am over the moon excited!!!  Allison @ House of Hepworths is using my bathroom art as inspiration for her kids bathroom remodel!

I can't believe it!  I have been reading/following her blog for a couple of years.  She has some of the best ideas for making a house a home.  I LOVE her read it every day, love!
The blogger world is so awesome.  Someone that has inspired me is now using something I made for inspiration.  Too cool. 

If you haven't "met" Allison over at her blog...go check her out.  She is da bomb.  Yep, I said that!

Kids Bath Finished!!

Well, it only took 2 months....give or take.  It. Is. Finished.  YES!!!

Here's how this all started...dirty towels on the floor!

One seeming little project turned into drywall mudd, sanding, board and batten, framing the mirror, new towels, new shower curtain, and artwork!  Whew.

 Notice the little hook on the bathroom mirror frame?  It's for hand towels!  LOVE
Added some letters to a piece of left over bead board from the entryway storage bench project.  I think the "WASH" sign turned out cute!  The kids just want to know why they have to have a sign to remind them to wash...hmmm, who knows? ;)
And because we all love a good before and after!

 Our walls all have that textured finish.  Don't love it for board and batten treatment. So I troweled on some drywall compound and smoothed it all out!  Lots of dust, but such a great look now.  Happy happy!

It was a mess...and dusty...and hard work.

But I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!! more project finished!
I had to tweek a little...oh and I need a window treatment of some kind, so technically I am not finished, but ehh.  I will be soon!!
I added this stained fence board above the door for a fun little surprise :)
The heart was free handed with a paint pen.  I only did one coat the make it a little shabby.
This is the fabric I want to use for a faux roman shade.  The window is frosted, so no need to worry about privacy.  Hence the reason it will be a faux shade and not a working one.  I can't wait for the fabric to come in so I can get started!
The fabric is Chipper in Vintage Blue and Natural by Premier Prints.  It's only $14.99 a yard, and I only need about 1/2 a yard.  Much cheeper than buying a roman shade!
