Thank you so much for stopping by today! I am so excited to let you in my home, and share a little about the space that I create in!
First I wanted to share a bit about US! I don’t think I have talked about it much on this blog, but we are a multigenerational family! Jonathan and I always told our parents we would take care of them as they grew older (still many many many years to come) but they wouldn’t ever have to worry about that. It was something that was laid on our hearts from a very young age. When we told them that, we thought it would be when we were all much older, but in fact it worked out perfectly for it to happen sooner rather than later. Now we get to reap the benefits of a multigenerational family as we have young kids, and we have an extra set of hands (or two) to help us through these busy times. We made it official in March 2013, and I can’t believe what a great transition it has been. Sure there has been some adjustments, like asking Papa to refrain from giving Addison donuts whenever she flashed her eyelashes at him and other fun things like that but over all I feel so blessed!
When we moved our main focus were the main living areas as well as the bedrooms so the craft room really never got done, we just threw everything in there and made due. It was a mix & match of Katherine (my mother in law) and our furniture. So when I knew she would be out of town for a couple days in a row, and I had saved up some money I knew it was a perfect chance to re-do the scrap room as a surprise for her.
It was important for me that it be a perfect mixture of our styles so when I was “sneaking” items home and telling her they were for our master bedroom and she kept saying she “LOVED” them and wanted them in the main living area I knew I was on the right track!!
So when she went to San Diego with her girlfriends we went to work!!! We all love how it turned out!
We lined this 10 foot wall with Ikea Kitchen Cabinets, white counter top and two book shelves. The Arrow Shelf and the Number 6 art is from Home Goods, which we just got in town! The rest of the items I curated from our old room. I love how both of our styles came together.
I also picked up this “fish bowl” from Home Goods, and I LOVE having all our washi out to see! :)
When we were designing the room I wanted to make sure the raskog cart has a home.
I love this thing and keep some of my favorite things in here!
I wanted to make sure we had a nice open space to create, also a little die-cut station!
These were all storage solutions we had in the old room and easily made their way over!
This arrow shelf has to be one of my favorite pieces in the room, and at $29.99 it was a steal!
I also had these in the old room and just cut them down to fit the smaller size. I love having them out and ready to use!
One of my favorite cabinets is this pull out pantry from Ikea. It was a PAIN to put together, but I love it!
Thank you so much for joining me on my little tour!! Look what I found on my desk! Some lovely Skipping 5 goodies! Please see my instagram for your chance to win your own set!
Some one once said “we have translated the Bible into many languages but never to a creative one” and that is exactly what Illustrated Faith is striving to do; provide a place to see the bible through a creative mind.
