DIY wood wall headboard for $40 bucks

Y’all see Bad Moms movie? I went last night with my fellow bad moms….really funny movie. Lots of laughs and one liners…none of which I can remember today–let alone post here…but look it up on Youtube (after you are done watching today’s video of course:)

Dang… I’m kind of tired of the hot weather! This time of year… around my birthday (#43 on Sunday whoot whoot:)… I start wishing for sweaters and jeans and the crisp fall air. I know we’re probably in for about a month more of Summer…but I’m hoping it fall comes quickly.

I have been busy and my bub’s room this week….loving how it is coming together. To bring you up to speed check out the moodboard for this project for my Teen boy room.

Teen Boy Room Design Plan

Here’s the truth about the situation in my son’s room…seriously looks like the day we moved in. I literally have not touched this room and my goal this back-to-school season was too give him more of a bedroom that suits his personality and style. The convo went like this…”hey Con, mind if I update your room a bit?…” he’s all…”yes, that would be great…but no “vintage” stuff…you like the old stuff…I like new stuff…” Those were my only directions….I think I can handle that…

The room does not have a whole heck of a lot of space but plenty for him. My goal is to maximize the space and make it a little bit more efficient and put together. The good thing is that I don’t have to paint the walls:) I am going to have a painter come and paint the ceiling White. I do love the Navy but it totally sucks the light out of the room and with only one window, this room definitely lacks light. Here is what I am working with….

Modern Farmhouse Kitchen #homearamahouse15

Well… happy Monday you all! Today is book day for my bubba. I can’t believe that summer is closing in on us! It really does go way too fast. It’s funny because when the kids were preschoolers I really couldn’t wait for the end of summer but now just two years away from college… the summers are really precious. I survived Universal, Wet & Wild and Epcot this past week. My bubs and I had so much fun! I was holding on to him for dear life through most of the rides which he found completely hilarious. We had a lot of great conversation and a lot of great laughs….so happy we took this trip:)

#homearamahouse15 Family Room

Hey there! How was your weekend? It was a scorcher here…thankfully I was inside this lovely air conditioned house most of the weekend. Thanks for stopping by to say hello:) Hard to believe that summer is more than half way over….we start up school again August 12th. I was hoping to get to the beach house again….seems that summer is so short!

I wanted to continue the tour today of Homearama house #15. I left off last week in foyer…and from that space you enter into the family room. We have heard the nicest compliments when folks enter this room…describing it as “warm, comfortable, livable and happy..” The first thing that will catch your eye is the massive white washed brick fireplace. We used the same technic that I used several years ago on my own brick fireplace. A watered down Pure White paint by Sherwin Williams is all we used…when it dried…the painter wire brushed some paint off to roughed it up more in spots. It turned out to be just the right texture of rough against our more “glam” lighting choices.

Unique Entry Foyer #homearamahouse15

I finally get to show you all the goodies I have been working on for the past year with builder Mark Simpson on this year’s house #15 at Homearama. I am using a hashtag so that you can easily search post that I have written or pics that I have shared of this home.

#homearamahouse15 @cleverlyinspired (11)

The foyer in this home is unique for several reasons…one being that we actually have a foyer. Most homes in this neighborhood do away with a proper foyer to give more room to the family room. I love walking into a home and having a room to be greeted in…this foyer is so welcoming, unique and classy.
