I’M MOVING….

….Out of this closet that is! Ha! I got ya there for a second, huh?! I thought that title would get your attention!

I am moving though. For almost a year I’ve been writing this here blog in this cozy little place that I called “My Space”.

Yeah, me and this perfect little space are parting ways. We’ve come a long way together. Remember when it looked like this

I was so proud of the transformation! My first little spot that I could call my own. We were absolutely great together.

I love pink. And it was filled with pink

Not to mention the pops of green that was tossed throughout….

My first giveaway was based on this space…

And my love for pink! Although I wouldn’t do that to you guys again. It kinda wasn’t fair for me to force my obsession of pink off on you like that! I mean really, all the way down to pink ink pens…. You live and you learn;-)

The space currently look like this

Yep, it has already been dismantled:-( And I don’t think that filled you in on how one of the shelves came crashing down. Whew, glad I wasn’t sitting under it! I’m going to use the space as a little nook for him. Originally, I was going to put another desk in there for him since he starts kindergarten this year, but I think it would be better used another way. The only plans so far is to paint the inside of the closet navy blue and maybe add some orange. Other than that the room is coming along nicely. I can see the finish line!

boys 367 (why does the curtain panel on the left look whack?)

Oh, and I have yet to replace the ceiling fan. No worries though, I’ll be working on that tomorrow. Here’s a hint: It may or may not include an IKEA hack involving mod podge and this light fixture

I’m just saying;-)

Have a Great Day Everyone!

Hope you find another spot to embrace your pinkness! The navy/orange combo you have planned sounds lovely. Keep the pictures coming!

You had some great times in that little closet. On to hopefully bigger areas, perhaps the living room? I can't wait to see how your DIY lighting project turns out. Everything else looks fab!

The big boy room is looking so great! I'm currently building a little office in my guest room closet. My boyfriend thought I was crazy but I like how cozy it feels! Plus I can shut the doors on my mess when we have company ;)

I missed the pinkness, but can't wait to see what you have in mind here. The Ikea hack sounds interesting. Have a great day!

This room looks so great!! I love the green, it is such a happy color...and yes, what is up with that drape. I want to stop on by and straighten it for you! Isn't it funny what you see in photos?

Okay, where are you moving? AND can't wait to see your light fixture project! Janell
