Late last week we (Jeff and his dad) finally got the wallpaper up in Crosby's room! I've had the wallpaper for months and was waiting until we had a few things repaired in the room before it could be hung. It completely transforms the room that was so plain before - now, we're just waiting on a mattress before we do the full "big girl" room transformation. Now that her walls are done I realized we have wallpaper in 3 different rooms in our house and wanted to do a post with the breakdown.
Since we've been spending so much time outside during the stay at home period, we've finally worked on some finishing touches to bring the patio together. A couple rugs, new throw pillows, another umbrella and finally having our tv installed have made a huge difference. Luckily the weather has been amazing so we can spend a lot outside. Jeff and I have especially loved sitting outside once the kids go to sleep at night.
At this point I've lost track of how many days we've been in quarantine. I'm currently somewhere between not knowing what day it is and wondering how much longer this is going to last. But I'm trying to make the most of it and stay positive. One thing that's really helping is making my house feel as peaceful as possible. I've been working on cleaning out closets, disinfecting anything that's ever been touched, organizing and diffusing aromatherapy with my new Aera diffuser.
A few months ago I started making a couple little updates to freshen up our home decor for spring. Who knew we'd be spending all of our time at home in the months to come! Little tweaks can go a long way, and there are several inexpensive ways to brighten your home up right now.
The past few weeks have made me incredibly thankful for an outdoor space. We have been soaking up as much sun as possible and trying to spend as much time outside tiring the kids out. Luckily the weather has been cooperating. Some of my outdoor furniture is on sale for 40% off right now along with the entire World Market outdoor department.
