Office Makeover Reveal: DIY Modern Funky Walls

I am so excited to finally show you a little something I have been working on.. My office makeover! Slowly, this little townhouse we are renting is starting to feel like my very own space. I knew that I could handle renting for a while because I have killer tools to help me make any room look personalized, aka vinyl and my Silhouette! I have been dreaming about how to decorate an office one day and I finally got to do it!

My First House Swan Song

As the week starts, I am pretty overwhelmed with feelings about closing on our house. There will be a new family moving in this weekend. I really am a total basket of emotions inside. I feel happy that the right person walked through our house so quickly. I feel relieved to be leaving the stress of home ownership for a little while while we rent.

I feel torn to leave all of my work in that house.

I started with painting the daycare blue room a gorgeous celery green. It served as my craft room for less than a year before it was turned into our tiny little muchkin’s bedroom. We had one room painted and many, many more square feet to cover.
