The Lil House That Could
No Sew Crib Skirt
- Published on Wednesday, 13 June 2012
Earlier this week, I shared how I made the no sew chevron curtains in Easton’s nursery using Premier Prints Zig Zag Blue Twill fabric. I had a bunch of fabric leftover and I wasn’t too happy with the crib skirt that came with our DwellStudio for Target bedding…
Not only was I not really feeling the stripes, but the...
No Sew Chevron Curtains
- Published on Monday, 11 June 2012
Finally, a post on those nursery curtains! We’ve been a little hectic around here the past two weeks… no, not just because we have a newborn. Mike mentioned that his side of our walk-in closet system collapsed when Easton was a few days old, so Mike has been spending all of his spare time spackling, painting and...
Nursery Closet Reveal
- Published on Thursday, 07 June 2012
I last left you with our nursery closet looking like this, after being stenciled and installing an organization system…
Well, now that you know that we had a baby boy, I can share the closet all stocked with his adorable things.
We still have plenty of room to fill up with things. The top left side of the closet is sparse...
The Easton Story
- Published on Monday, 04 June 2012
I know this isn’t really home related, but I figured I’m always interested in the so-called birth story, so maybe you’d be too. And if you’re not, you can just scroll through the cute baby pictures, k?
I woke up on Monday the 21st at 5am with what I was certain was a contraction. Up until this point (one day...

Hey all! While Rebecca continues to recover (holy swollen ankles, poor girl) and we begin to get into some routines for E, posting here might be light. I’ve been trying to post daily pictures of Easton over at Macky&Co, so certainly check it out!
For a side, but not so much fun, note — the other night, our upstairs...
Guess Who? Easton!
- Published on Sunday, 27 May 2012
Guess who arrived on Wednesday May 23rd at 12:05pm! Easton Max did! After hours of labor for Rebecca, Easton decided to make his grand entrance into the world. He arrived 21 inches long and weighing 8lbs 8oz.
There is no back story to where we came up with the name Easton. Rebecca mentioned it one day and it just made sense for...
Little Painted Bookcase
- Published on Monday, 21 May 2012
Finally, a project I can show you, just not the wide angle photos Remember that bookcase we ordered from Target a couple of weeks ago (the Carson 2-shelf bookcase)? I told you I planned to paint the back of it green, like so…
Yes I know, I am an excellent Photoshopper. I’m working on it Anyway, the bookcase arrived...
Treatment and Teaser
- Published on Thursday, 17 May 2012
Last week, Mike and I hung a roman shade in the baby’s room. Since we just wanted a simple white one to put some bolder chevron curtains over, we decided just to use one of the 6 white shades we ordered for our master a while back. We bought cotton roman shades from JCPenney. Yeah we never hung them in the master…
Nursery Closet Organization
- Published on Wednesday, 16 May 2012
During the past week or so, Mike and I have been busy chipping away at nursery projects. So busy, in fact, that we have way more to blog about than we have left to do. It’s so amazing and exciting to see the room come together and I am itching to share everything. Right now, we’ve been focusing on getting everything...

Tomorrow is my due date.
I honestly had no desire to take a 40 week picture . I haven’t worn jeans in 2 weeks and I’m trying to grow out my hair, so it’s in an awkward flipping stage. Therefore looking decent these days = extremely time consuming. I took this picture right after a nap and said eff it,...
