  • Park Home Reno: Lego Room

    My boys lego room revamp is finally done and we are so in love with it! The hand-drawn skyline takes the lego room to the next level. Before: How to design a Lego Room Floors and Walls – First, choose what you want for your walls (and flooring if this is a full remodel). I painted all the walls white (Behr Frost) and did a hand-drawn skyline on the wall (tutorial coming soon) to set the tone for the room. We featured some of our favorite buildings. I wanted a hand-drawn look so I used a straight edge and a Sharpie Paint Pen to draw the design. I chose a black and white striped rug for the floors.

  • Park Home Reno: Living Room Makeover

    Park Home Reno: Living Room Makeover I’m so excited to share this space today! I decided to take a few photos before I got my Christmas decor up this year. We still have a few things to do in this room but here it is for now! This is what the front room looked like when we first moved in. It’s literally the exact view right when you walk into our house. First, I painted all of the walls Behr Frost (satin) and the navy wall is Behr Starless Night (flat), my FAVORITE navy right now. We installed Reverie Sputnik Chandelier from Lucent Light Shop. I built the mantel using the same method as I did in my old house. You can get that tutorial here. DIY Fireplace Mantel. I’ve linked all of the sources for where I got everything at the end of the post after the photos.   I love my blue/white glass collection and I actually have a new place for the collection to go soon but I’ve loved collecting these lamps, jars, vases etc!
