home sweet home

Well I promised long ago that I would do a brief tour when I was finished with the boys room! I am never quite finished as I am ALWAYS adding and removing something in the house. The rooms never look the same week to week. But now is as good as any to show you where we are so far!

So welcome to my very humble home! It is quaint and cozy but it is home to the little loves of my life. I often dream of our own home and know that we will get their eventually. However in this season of life, especially with our recent life changes, this little two bedroom is where we rest our heads! I am so grateful to have a warm roof over our heads. So without further rambling.....home

The view when you walk in our front door. Living room, kitchen to the left, the little office nook behind the living, and the boys bath and bedroom beyond that.

I love these pillows!

This box was given to me a couple years ago by a dear friend. I love it!

I made a little chalk board for our bar. I couldn't resist as I have been seeing them everywhere! I have a large crystal vase with white flowers to the left of it that you can't see.

One of the little hurricanes I have on top of the armoire in the little nook area. Love the dollar tree!

A zoomed out pic of the armoire. The wreath behind is a work in progress. Trust me on that :)

One of my very favorite jars! It is on the coffee table directly under the bar. Not the normal place for a coffee table you say? Well have I mentioned how cozy and quaint my little home is :)

My second favorite jar. This is on the entertainment center to the left as you walk in. It sits next to our tv.

These little spaghetti jars sit on top of the toilet in the boys bath. Their whole bath room is blue and green. Still a work in progress as well!

A peak into my bedroom around the corner. Definitely the most neglected room in the house but that is changing! Matthew will room in with me for a long while :)

Now into the boys room!!! As you walk in the door...
The cross peaking from under the net was there before I hung the net up. I need to move it down a bit.

The bed area. Ignore the mess. Their room is never "perfect" and I wouldn't have it any other way!
Their bunk beds are from and after searching everywhere they had the best prices and the best quality. They also have free shipping! I highly recommend them. The comforters are from Target and are down. They are so soft.

To the left as you walk in. Ignore that unruly second drawer. It taunts me constantly and I have just learned to live with it :) Personality I say! I got it free off of freecycle and painted it red. Almost all of the basic pieces of their room are neutral and the decor was all made by me. This way I can change it often without spending money. Cause ya know with two little boys, it changes a lot!

And a blurry picture of their porthole :)

For Matthew, I got him a new crib as Ej's was recalled. I ended up getting the Europa Baby Palisades Lifetime Crib and I love it! Right now it is sitting to the left of my bed in my room. I took out the changing table that was in there in its place. Then I put the changing table topper on top of my night stand and it was a perfect fit! It is tight to say the least but it works! I just made Matthew a chalk board picture that is above the changing area. I'll post that later :)

There are some things I am working on. I would love a rug for the living room and a roman shade for the boys room! Also I need to make some curtains for my bedroom as well. Always something :)

So there you have it! A peak into our little corner of the world! It has come a long way but still has a way to go.

Im linking up over at the Decor Chic!!! You should join in too!

LOVE Bunk Bed King! And we got the same bunk bed for our boys. Super sturdy! And someday you could put a trundle bed underneath if you had to :)
