Living Room Remodel

Here is the sad before in this dark and gloomy house. It was dirty...filthy dirty...outdated or really just never good finishes. It took lots of work, but when I look at it now I'm just so happy!

Doesn't it just make you feel happy?!!?!?!?

Paint color: Worldly Grey- Sherwinn Williams at 50% intensity, however if I could repaint I would do 75% intensity! White everywhere is Sherwinn Williams- Alabastor White. We got the flooring at Home Depot.

My sweet hubby installed my shiplap wall!!! It has the ceiling at a point so he had to make a lot of angle cuts. We used a staple gun to adhere it to the wall, when painting I filled some of the nails in, but left some to add character. 

The piano I painted is the focal point of the room, it makes it so bright and cheerful!

For the Shiplap wall we used the thinnest/ cheapest underlayment we could find and cut it into strips.

Love the barn gate my husband made, adds the right tough and safety at the same time! Also the window bench he also built, great storage and extra seating.

Hamilton Plaid Adorableness!

I love this picture, because I love this girl, and because I love my a future post! She is wearing a hamilton plaid jumper from Zulily, it was a size 5/6 and she's tall so in the future I would have ordered a bigger size because she is probably going to grow out of it soon. It buttons up the back and has cute buttons on the front. It also adds a change of pace to her wardrobe. Add a white collared shirt, white tights, and a navy blue jacket with the sparkle shoes! 

Hair style is done in 3 sections of pony tails, think of a U shape as you part. Once you have them all secured together add a bow!

Cardigan Sweater!

I absolutely Love this navy blue cardigan sweater from Children's Place! So versatile, on the other hand this one was not very happy about going to school today...
But we made the most of it, cute khaki stretch skinny pants with an adorable navy blue belt from walmart. White button blouse- staples. Today's hair is simple because we were late, this is happening more and more lately haha. Topsy turvey to the side secure with a pony tail, add a bow, bows fix everything!

Because Preschool also deserves a post!

My second little darling was excited to share her outfit! topsy turvey sections are done in a pin wheel around the head with a side part. Take a pony tail section secure with ponytail then stick your finger in the middle and pull the hair through- that's a topsy turvey- my own name for I guess. Take all the sections and secure to the side, wrap the pony tail a few times then on the last time only pull half way with the hair coming out on top, then add a cute bow!

Star purses are so in for preschoolers ;)

Happy Kids, Happy Mom!

Does it seem like I do a lot of up styles? Well my kids get baths at night so morning there hair looks a little bit crazy! Today we are including topsy turvey, section off one on each side of the head- symmetrical or be crazy and do some Asymmetrical! Brush back into a pony tail and secure, then braid and secure. This style to make it look polished needs to be sprayed with water and then sprayed with hairspray, a lot of hairspray! 

This happy girl was so excited because she got to wear a navy blue skirt! haha just kidding probably because she has a yummy snack in that back pack. Navy skirt I picked up at a garage sale! Wahoo score! Button up blouse from Children's place, white tights and sparkly shoes make a girl smile!

Quick morning fixer!

A navy blue head band is a must have, we use this a lot! Woke up late...pull hair back into a pony, braid and secure at the end- top off with a cute head band and magically it looks like you spent more time than you did! Worn with Navy blue polo from Target, Khaki Jumper from Zulily (they have the best deals on uniforms!) Boots with a little frill- okay they don't match very well, but sometimes you have to give in to what the kiddos want.

Over slept, but I did lay the outfit out the night before!

Today's outfit: White button blouse with a sparkle light blue jacket tucked into khaki pleated skirt. Top off with knee highs and sparkle blue shoes! 

This hair style is a parted rectangle on top, french braid and continue braiding down the strand, secure and gather all of the hair into a pony tail---for all of you crazy paced moms in the morning, this one is quick!
