DIY Gifts for the New Mom

I love holiday gifting! And, for almost the last decade, a common person popping up on my Christmas list is, the ‘New Mom’. So, I thought I’d dedicate the last week of our, Month of DIY Holiday Gifts, to her — with a little round-up of my, DIY Gifts for the New Mom, in your life. […]

The Nursery Details

So I revealed my happy little “woodland creatures, modern nursery“, this week! Did you see it? We’ve been enjoying it around here, but there were a few of the nursery details, that I couldn’t get to the first time around… like this light. It started out as a dreaded “boob” light. Urgh. Then, got a […]

One Last Goodbye.

Yep, time to say goodbye to our little bi-level. It was our first single family home, and our first home with the kiddo. There were a loooooot of projects happening here. We had a lot of fun and it was definitely our creative outlet for the past 6 years. Remember this? … it took a […]

Baby Love, Mobile

After the Kiddo was born, I knew I definitely wanted to put some homemade touches in her room. One project that didn’t seem too overwhelming with a brand new baby in the house (thank goodness for those newborn naps!), was a mobile. I was on quite a bird kick at the time (oh, who am I […]

And then, it appeared… we found this fantastic light for around $40, at Rona. It is brand new stock, so unfortunately, it is currently not listed on their website, […]

Change Table – Before and After

Another tick off the “to-do list” today. The nursery change table, also given to us by neighbours, is ready to go. Time to remove the last remnants of our home office out to make room for this new piece. I guess I’d better get on a change pad too! Here’s a look at the before… […]

DIY Birch Tree Wall Mural

In the continuing effort to attempt a nursery, I was searching through my many inspirational web saves, jpg’s and clippings… and was reminded of this wonderful gem originally posted on Design Sponge last year. When I first saw Jen’s Bedroom makeover, I immediately wanted to put birch trees in my home somewhere, anywhere! Finally, the time had […]

Nursery Dresser – Before and After

I’ve mentioned how awesome our neighbours are before… and they’ve come through again. We got this great hand-me-down and I decided to refinish it while I have the time (since everyone keeps telling us we’ll have none when we have a family). Here’s how she started out: I wanted to get the top down to […]
