While I was hanging out with my brother and SIL last week (I’m really missing their sweet new baby right about now!) I asked Dayna if I could take a camera tour around their darling home. She has decorated everything so cute without spending much money at all and I love so many of her ideas! So of course I had to share them with all of you. :)
My brother made these planter boxes with just some wood and wood screws. Then he and Dayna painted them black and added some pretty flowers. Such a small project that makes a huge difference on the exterior of their house. Yea for planter boxes! I love them.
Her entry way is so welcoming. She painted an old desk turquoise. Then she bought a sunburst mirror at Target for above the table and it wasn’t quite big enough so she attached it to a simple, inexpensive mirror. Perfect! She also just bought that cute lamp with the yellow shade at Target. Add a simple white bird (you know I’m a fan of using a bird or two when decorating), a few magazines and wa-la! A super stylish entry way.
And here is a corner of sweet little Finn’s new nursery. Isn’t it adorable!? The crib was a Craigslist find ($30!). My brother worked his magic to fix it up a bit and make sure it was safe and then Dayna spray painted it white. What a difference a little spray paint can make. She didn’t know if she was having a boy or a girl when she decorated this space and I think she did a great job keeping it gender neutral but still full of color and personality.
And here is Drew’s new big boy bed. LOVE this! The sunglasses and colors in this bedding are so fun. Especially with the blue table and bright yellow lamp (bedding and furniture found at… where else… Target!).
Just like the bookshelf lined with wrapping paper, you can easily change this when you’re in the mood for a different look. I love the way it gives her room a dramatic focal point.
