As we prepare to move to Brantford, Ontario via Chicago, Illinois (crazy eh?), I can’t help but look fondly upon some of my most favorite projects from around the house.
It turns out the things I like the best were not the most expensive, but the most creative. Here they are, in no particular order:
I love how our bedroom turned out! It was one of the last things to decorate and I really enjoyed the project. It is a blend of Kijiji finds, hotel sales, sewing projects, and Winners. The best part is the extreme close up pictures of the kids above the headboard.
I’ve recently fallen in love with this deep shade of purple in the shower curtain. I love any chance to work it into our home decor.
The alphabet letters resting on the trim were inspired by one of my favorite designers, Sarah Richardson. I love how the trim breaks up the change in wall color, and that the upper color continues over the ceiling.
I just love this painting. It was a clearance Winners find that thrilled me.
What more can I say about the fireplace? I think I have posted enough about fireplaces that you all know I love them. The old windows hanging above were found on Kijiji for a steal of a deal.
I love storage, and built-in storage that makes use of every space thrills me. Under the basement stairs is wasted space in many homes – but not ours!
The basement bathroom was one space we hired out. The work was a bit above our ability. We were thrilled with end result. Well worth the investment.
The downstairs family room is another favorite space in the house. A perfect place to curl up with a book, watch a family movie, or play with the kids.
The kitchen cabinet was such a simple project, but I love it -and Kevin for building it.
It will be sad to leave a home that we poured so much of our hearts into, but the upside is – I get to start over on another place!
