I also thought I would share with you the reason that I blog.... I belong to a wonderful church organization that stresses the importance of education. I have heard many talks on the subject, and each time I do, I feel an urgency to follow this counsel and become more educated. I have really struggled with the thought because my children are so young and financially it just isn't the best time. I have felt impressed that I should develop my interests and talents at home until it is a more appropriate time. I really love to refurbish furniture and I love interior design. Although I feel inadequate, I think it is a blast to learn and try new things. Blogging about them helps me to stay motivated and helps me to get (hopefully honest) feedback about what works and what does not. The blogging world also gives me incredible ideas and inspiration. I sincerely appreciate that you would take the time to look at the my little projects!
I was introduced to a couple of fun blogs this week. Lisa has some awesome learning activities for kids. She has some really fun projects that give you some productive, quality time with your little ones! Also my neighbor Cassie has a really fun blog for moms. She has a different focus each day. She has some great ideas and wisdom to share!
Stay tuned this next week, I am attempting a boys room. My son really wanted a black bedroom. We comprised and decided to try gray with black accents.
We'll see how it goes. I think the colors will look pretty together, I'm just a little nervous that they might end up looking elegant instead of boyish. Maybe we'll throw red in there too. If you've seen any gray bedrooms that have worked please send me a link! Here's the headboard I bought at DI for $15.
So boyish right??? I'll be painting it black tomorrow along with a farmhouse shelf above the window. Wish me luck!! I'm gonna need it!
