How the weekends fly now that everyone here is in school! I feel like every time I turn around it's Monday again. We are still adjusting to this school thing. I think M+L are just catching on that school isn't a simple novelty. Last night as I told them they needed to get ready for bed for school in the morning they both declared "No, we don't want to got to school anymore." I get it. But, of course, off they went.
Although the weekend went fast it was a good mix of a productive and relaxed one. I finally got around to taking a few pictures of M+L's room (aka all-day everyday+tiger). I was really wishing for that wide angle lens I have been dreaming of for years now. I do not know how people get good room shots without one (i don't think you do). Though despite my photography woes I am really happy with the way the room turned out. They have great light in there for most of the day and it feels both bright and cosy enough for a kids space. It also turned out pretty closely as I imagined. The painted walls were definitely inspired by pinterest. Most everything were things that I found via thrift stores or craigslist, or we things already had. The chair was $15 craigslist find that fit the request for pink from Milo. The painted dresser was a side-of-the-road-find that I brought home and repainted - it quickly became my main source of inspiration for the room. The mid-century dresser was a vintage shop find that I bought before I found the other dresser, but I decided to keep it because M+L have quite the collection of clothes. The beds are from Ikea, as well as the shelving, planters, lighting, and frames. The rug was the last purchase. I was looking for an off-white round rug but I couldn't find one that I loved, so I went with this knowing I could swap it pretty much anywhere in my house later on down the road. And of course all their bedding was made by me, this way I could indulge in all linen bedding and design it exactly how I wanted it.
The rest of the weekend I spent cleaning up and getting ready for the week. I am realizing I need to maybe spend the school hours on Friday doing this so the weekends aren't always consumed by next week preparations. But as I said we are still adjusting. How was your weekend?
