HOT PINK VELVET CLUB CHAIRS- A NEW LOOK IN THE LIVING ROOM


Out with the old, in with the new!  A while back I mentioned in this post that I had found a pair of club chairs to take the place of our leather recliners that we were ready to switch out.  Well, they're back from the upholsterer and have made quite a difference in the look of our living room!  Without further adieu... take a look at my new hot pink velvet club chairs!  (*This post contains affiliate links, read my full disclosure policy here.)

FIVE FRIDAY FAVORITES


Happy Friday everyone!  It's toilet and shower day here... woo hoo!  The plumber is coming to install the shower fixtures and a new toilet in the kids' bath, Emily is so excited to not be sharing with us anymore!  :)  Then, we're spending the weekend painting all the things in there- ceiling, walls, trim, doors... everything.  I got it started last night and finished enough behind the toilet so we wouldn't have to work around that, and we're loving the fresh bright white on the walls.  The new countertop and faucets will be our last big piece, but after all the painting I can start on the fun stuff- accessories!  Hope you all have a fabulous weekend full of doing fun things (and maybe knocking off some things from your to-do list!), I've got some good things to share with you today.   (*This post contains affiliate links, read my full disclosure policy here.)

I shared this new Williams Sonoma + Schumacher collection with you a while back, but the Chiang Mai Dragon Glasses just went on sale.   They're still expensive and impractical (hand wash) but oh so special and beautiful!  I'm certain my morning orange juice would taste better in one of these!  ;)

KIDS' JACK AND JILL BATHROOM MAKEOVER- WEEK 2 PROGRESS


Work in the kids' Jack and Jill bathroom is moving along well!  It's been nice that we're kind of doing this at our own pace, plugging along as we're able and don't have to work furiously to meet a  deadline like I have on several of our other makeovers.  That being said, a deadline does help me get it done, so I'm trying to stay on it and not let this drag on and on.  I've been finalizing lots of selections and still shopping for a few things, but here's where we are so far.  (*This post contains affiliate links, read my full disclosure policy here.)

MY BRIGHT AND PLAYFUL PINK, BLACK AND WHITE HALLOWEEN DECORATING IDEAS


I normally don’t do much for Halloween but it’s a big, kid friendly, fun night in our neighborhood where my kids always enjoyed being out with their friends and neighbors to see who could come home with the most candy.  ;)  At Home Stores invited me to partner with them to feature their vast selection of Halloween decor. Since a big part of my job is to share decorating ideas, that often centers around various holidays. I thought even though we don't really "celebrate" Halloween to the extent that others might, this would be a good opportunity to stretch my creative muscles with something different than I normally do and focus on decorating for the holiday in a kid-friendly, bright, playful style for those who were looking for some fresh ideas. Because I have a feeling that a lot of you also just celebrate it as an opportunity for your kids to wear cute costumes, get candy, and walk the neighborhood with their friends like we do!  So, here's my spin on bright, preppy, fun, maybe even classy (is "classy" Halloween a thing? Ha!) pink, black and white Halloween decor Dimples and Tangles style! 

I chose a few key areas to focus on adding some festive Halloween touches to the house.  Of course, the most important spot to focus on for the big night is the Front Porch, right?  It definitely needs to be decked out to welcome all of those darling little trick or treaters!

KIDS' JACK AND JILL BATHROOM MAKEOVER- BEFORE PHOTOS AND DESIGN PLAN


I have a big house project that's been on my "to-do" list every year for as long as I can remember... the Master Bathroom.  We're finally tackling that this Fall, but we decided to squeeze in a "quick" kids' bathroom makeover too!  And I quote "quick", because what I thought would be just a quick and simple refresh turned into pretty much a full fledged bathroom makeover!  We didn't go down to the studs or move anything around, but short of that everything is getting freshened up.  Our kids share a Jack and Jill bathroom between their bedrooms, which is the only other tub/shower in the house, so we decided to knock out their makeover while finishing up the planning for the Master. We're all sharing the Master/Powder Bath in the process, so soon it will be our turn to share their nice, fresh, pretty bathroom when it's finished and demo on the Master Bath starts!  But let's back up and today I want to share our starting point- the before photos- and where this bathroom is headed- the design plan and inspiration!

We actually did some updating to this bathroom when we moved into the house 12 years ago. I wish I could find a photo of how it looked when we bought the house, but picture dark navy wallpaper with small flowers (if I remember correctly), shiny brass vanity lights with the glass tulip shades, shiny brass fixtures, and a carpeted floor!

Here's a pretty, styled photo that I did for a project last year...
