Hello friends! Recently, I have been getting lots of questions about the striped drapes in our living room so I thought I would talk a bit more about them today. When I saw them in TJ Maxx, I thought they would be perfect for my youngest boy's room. They cost just under $30 for the pair and I left the store a happy camper. I have had my eye out for striped drapes for a while now. They also had a pair that was khaki and white, but I liked the gray better for his room. When I brought them home, I thought maybe I would try them out in the living room for a couple of weeks because I was craving some change in there. Here they are in our summer living room.
I have been wanting to try dipping leaves in wax to preserve them for a couple of years but never quite got around to doing it. When we were in Upstate NY last weekend, we finally did. It was a fun and easy project! First, we took a nice long walk to gather some pretty leaves.
Columbus Day weekend in the Adirondacks might just be my very favorite weekend of the year. The leaves were a bit past "peak", but they were still gorgeous. This gazebo is down by the lakefront portion of the town of Schroon Lake, NY.
Earlier this year, my youngest and middle boy decided that they no longer wanted to share a bedroom. They each wanted their OWN room. That day. They had made the choice to share a room a couple of years prior but the honeymoon was over, as sometimes happens with brothers. I had been planning on claiming this extra bedroom as my space. I had a whole board on Pinterest dedicated to my new super organized home office. So this is not one of those well planned out spaces in our home. This was more of a load up the whole truck with Ikea furniture because that's what fits the budget type of room. But my boy is thrilled with his space and that is really all that matters.
