Today's a little "this and that" around our house. I've added a few touches here and there and thought it would be fun to share!
First up, I added this chalkboard to our front porch. I don't have anything written on it yet, but think it will be cute with seasonal messages :) It's hanging on a screw so I can take it down, but have a feeling it will be up most of the time.
In our old house I used to hang this above the buffet in the kitchen or used it on the mantle for holidays and I couldn't find a great spot for it in this house, so I'm pumped to have a cute place for it here.
In my post about Luke's room I mentioned that I was on the hunt for something to put above his bed and I found it! (yes... he makes his bed... and no... it doesn't look perfect, but he's making it and that's what counts) ;)
When I saw this canvas I KNEW he would be obsessed with it.
And I was totally right ;) I would have loved something a little more subtle - but sometimes you suck it up and buy your kid the giant superhero canvas that you know they'll love.
I really do love it - it goes with his bedding and is a great size.
I found it at Ross (random, but they have great stuff on occasion) and paid $35 for it! I felt like it was a great deal.
Another addition to Luke's room since my original post is some Lego storage!
We went to IKEA and picked out pieces from their TROFAST storage system that we thought would work and so far, so good.
At the end of the bed he has a 9-drawer storage unit where he has drawers sorted by color.
He has done a really great job keeping things sorted so far (he DOES have a whole drawer under his bed of unsorted Legos... but we're working on that).
The creations on top are my favorite part :)
He also has the tall 6-drawer unit next to his desk where he keeps "special" pieces like wheels, tires, mini-figures, etc). He likes having it close to his desk so he can work on his projects. I can't say enough great things about the IKEA pieces. They were easy to assemble and are really sturdy. He uses them daily and they are holding up great.
Also, in the boys bathroom I had a canvas hung above their towel bar, but when I found this whale shelf I decided it had to come home with me. I can't find this exact one online, but this one is super similar.
Currently there's a little succulent, jar of q-tips and a sign (which I don't love... but it was $2.99 and fit perfectly so I'm probably going to paint it and do my own thing with it) on it and I'm thinking a little stack of folded washcloths might be cute in place of the plant.
In the toilet/tub area that connects the kids bathrooms I added this big metal M I found at Homegoods.
On the other side of the bathroom I added this canvas from our Spring pictures a few years ago.
In Griffin's room I added a hook in her reading nook area for dress-up clothes, bags, etc.
She has been loving this cape and I love the colors ;)
I picked the hook up at Anthropologie and I love that it has multiple hooks (I think it's probably for towels).
So! There you have it... a little this and that around our house!
Happy Wednesday, Friends!!!
