Here's my house... certainly not clutter-free but it's cozy.

Lovely! I the Klimt print in your living room. Do you happen to remember where you got your TV stand? I'm looking for something similar and haven't been able to find anything quite like that.

New signature, same old me: Ann- mama of 2 boys and 2 girls, partnered to a fabulous man.

So sorry I'm only now seeing this.

It's really very easy.

Felt 100% wool sweaters in the wash.

Cut into 2x2ish inch squares. Push them onto a wire coat hanger. Bend a loop at the top, add a ribbon and hang.

Easy Peasy.

It's from Target... it was flat packed with a bajillion pieces and I "built" it myself.

Hey I'm back with another reno. This time it's the master bedroom. We actually finished it a month ago but my camera was away getting fixed.

Before the reno I had my clothes in my daughter's closet as dh's clothes take up the entire master bedroom closet. He built me a captain's bed that has 6 drawers underneath for all my clothes. It's much better now and cleaning the room is a breeze. Nice and minimalist. It could use some art on the walls though.

Here's the link.

Yay! I have been working on making our basement into a useable space. Today I built a wooden shelf unit to store all of the kids' toys down there!

Erin I like the shelving. How did you attach the cross braces to the uprights? It looks like maybe some kind of hardware?

wow, some awesome homes on this thread! I posted near the beginning somewhere and just this year have updated several of the rooms and moved things around as the kids get older. Must take new pics and post them. I feel my home is so much more homely now as well even though I loved it back then too. guess over time things have just naturally evolved as have my tastes.

Have painted all our bedrooms (last paintwork was when we moved in here 6yrs ago), have rearranged the kids play area at one end of the lounge, have rearranged my dining/entry and added more personal touches such as house plants, purchased new curtains in the lounge and our bedroom (the ones we got 6yrs ago were just calico cheapies that were starting to look a bit grotty).

It's a Delight-Filled Life.

I recently upgraded my son from a crib to a bed. This necessitated a lot of rearranging, so I thought I'd post some updated pictures. It still feels a bit cluttered to me, but it's a little kids room so what can you do? Also, it's a small space and very narrow, only 9 by 12 feet.

Thanks gals. I try. We have limited space and a very limited budget, so I mostly make do with second-hand stuff.

I found the moon light at Aldi's of all places. They had it last winter before Christmas. I know I've seen it for sale in those kids toys catalogs that come in the mail too. HTH!

They also sell them at Target.I think they're called moon in my room if you wanted to google to order one on line somewhere.Beware though my gal was given one that never worked and when I emailed the company I never got a response.I do know folks that have them and never ran into trouble though.They're pretty cool.It will light up the different phases of the moon.

We just finished redecorating the nursery. Although we liked the blue it was previously, dd1 has been requesting green/pink. Friends gave us an old bunk bed that we split up and painted. Dh sanded down the wood floor and painted it white. All that's left is to replace the fabric over the window with proper curtains.

Here's the pic

Their clothes are in a closet on the wall opposite the window. It is full of shelving so lots of space in there for all their stuff. Toys are in baskets on floor to ceiling shelves in the living room (pic poster earlier in this thread).

The room is beautiful!!! I love it!

Can you tell me more about how your DH painted the floor? We have hardwood under some nasty carpet in some of the bedrooms but haven't pulled the carpet up because whoever put in the carpet put in MEGA nails all over the hardwood and it looks terrible. I hadnt thought about painting it! That would be great- and yours came out so nice! Did you use a special kind of paint or primer?
