A couple of updates on the blog I wanted to share...I dropped the ".blogspot" Now, you can just go to www.onthebanksofsquawcreek.com. If you have the site bookmarked with the old address, no worries. It will automatically redirect you.
I also added the "Recent Post" thumbnails above the new post. I love it because I see adorable pictures of my boys the minute I bring up the page.
Third - I have began "truncating" some posts. The most recent post will always be shown in full, but for the rest on the home page, you'll need to click "read more" to see the rest of the post.
And now, on to some super important home decor ideas. :)
We recently moved Isaac’s crib into Adam’s room, so after a year of having an extra roommate, we’re almost ready to declare the master bedroom “For Grown-Ups Only.”
And I’ve got plans.
The plan starts with this headboard. I bought it at the Goodwill for $25 and gave it a quick coat of spray paint.
I’ve posted about how much I loathe spray paint before, but this was a totally different experience. This Rustoleum paint worked so. well. And people, you must NOT attempt any spray painting without this handy-dandy Rustoleum handle thingy. And no, they’re not paying me to say that.
When it was dry, I propped the headboard behind the bed, just to get an idea of how it would look.
I want to raise it up a foot or so, and upholster the inset part with a bright coral fabric
Kind of like this…
I also have a pretty, curvy mirror that I bought the same day for $12.99. Gotta spray it, and then it will go on the wall opposite the bed, to bring some of the curviness to the other end of the room.
- bamboo shades
- put up the rest of the trim
- fix the hand-me-down drapes – remove the tabs and sew a rod pocket.
- new/different nightstand
- new rug? eh – probably not, but it sounds nice
I’m really excited to finally have a pretty bedroom!
