Jaxon's Nursery~DIY Star Drapes

You may remember my recent post about the new DIY Star Drapes I made for the boys new room.  Today, I'd like to show how this project has made it's way into another real life space.  

This room belongs to this little guy...

Isn't that the sweetest face you've ever seen? 
 I think I would think that even if he wasn't my nephew. 
Anyway, here are a few pic's from around his cute little nursery.  

Nothing is more exciting than seeing of one of my DIY projects in someone else's home.  When I posted the navy blue star drapes tutorial from my boys room, my sister called me and informed me that Jax was getting a pair stat. 

She chose chocolate brown panels to compliment the colors in his bedding and the custom painted Ikea table I painted for him, if you missed that post, here are a few pics...

The table and chairs were a thrift store find that I made over for her shower gift. 

One day when my camera is not acting up, I'll give you the full tour of his adorable nursery. 

Her decision to make these drapes in brown was fabulous.  

The cotton twill drapes came from Walmart ($17/pair).  Following my step by step tutorial,  the project took 2 hours to complete. 

My sister did a great job designing and personalizing the space.  
His nursery is full of whimsical accessories and these semi-custom drapes were a great final touch.

Extreme Fireplace Makeover

While I'm away from the blog {returning April 9th} I've scheduled a few post re-runs.  This is one of my all time favorite transformations.  It was recently featured at The Inspired Room as one of the Top Four Most Popular Room Tours {thanks Melissa}.   

Upgrading the fireplace in this open concept floorplan completely changed the feeling of the entire home.  The addition of bookcases, a chunky flatscreen tv frame, a custom  mantle and new stacked stone fireplace surround, this home was transformed from builder grade to custom with character.

Here it is...

Recently, I was given the opportunity to work with a beautiful family in their gorgeous home on a complete re-design of their two story great room.  The space was beautiful to start with.  However, it  wasn't conducive to the young family that lives there. 



   They wanted a room that's warm, inviting and casual.  A space that beckons friends, family and pets to cozy up on the couch for movies and intimate conversions.
A room that is both beautiful and livable.

My clients words were; "I want a room that the whole family wants to be in, together, at the same time".

To accomplish this, we started with comfortable new furnishings and a fresh wall color.   The next items on the agenda were a custom built-in bookcase,  new fireplace surround and ginormous (70 inch) flatscreen TV.


We are about halfway finished, still waiting on furniture delivery.
Stay tuned to see more of this makeover as it's completed.
Thank you, Mark and Heidi,  for allowing me to invade inviting me into your home.
