Stylin & Profilin..

February 12th, 2013

I’ve been keeping a secret from you guys. {no I’m not pregnant}

The secret is my awesome walk in closet.  OK- walk in may be an over statement.  But it’s bigger than the closet I had at good old Rosewood Ave..

Welcome …

Even though it’s just a closet, I wanted to make it feel like a fun place that I could “shop” for clothes and accessories when getting ready every morning.

I used different colored hangers to differentiate the various types of clothing (shirts, pants, jackets, dresses). What can I say? That’s the A+ personality in me coming out!

And then used the shelves for my shoes…

and my jewels and smaller handbags.

I also utilized the tall blank wall behind the door to hang necklaces and some of my favorite art.

Amongst it all, I mixed some of my favorite quotes in with family photos that make me smile every-time I see them. I can’t think of a better way to start and my day than looking at the ones I love.

There’s talk around these parts about renovating our master bath, which means my closet would most likely become a shower, but we’ve got time to figure all that out.  For now I will continue to enjoy my closet as it is!

p.S.  are you following me on Instagram yet? {@tottyvb} I showed photos this weekend of the new fabric I got for the lumbar pillow on my bed and the kitchen chairs! Make sure you check it out!

Catching up…

February 9th, 2013

Hello Blogging World!

I’m not going to make excuses for where I’ve been, no one wants to hear it.

Instead I’m going to show you what I’ve been busy doing…

yup- finally painted “most” of the interior front door.

It was too cold to keep the door open while the paint dried, so I just painted the interior panels.

can’t tell from the street, can you??

Now on to the Nursery…

I’ve been going back and forth about painting stripes, so I finally pulled the trigger and just painted one of the walls.

Still debating on if I should paint stripes on an adjacent wall.  Gonna keep you guys guessing a little longer on this one before I do a full preview.

Moving on…

The Headboard Arrived!

Totally loving it, but still trying to decide the pillow layout.  The 2 smaller ones in the front were scores I found at Homegoods for $15 each.  I thought they were a steal for a down pillow insert.  I plan on recovering them with this trellis fabric.

And then maybe get some white shams with a cool monogram???

More on that progress later as well.

Now on to my most favorite project…

Words cannot express how much I love this little dude.

Lastly, I’ll  leave you with a photo of my fun new flats that I picked up from Steinmart.

Now we are offically caught up with my life.  How are things with you?

ps. Stay in touch with my on a daily basis on instagram- tottyvb
