Kid’s Bedroom Desk Makeover

BEFORE: Unfortunately I do not have much for before photos, I really need to get better at that part. Here are a couple I found in my camera roll to give some sort of idea what it looked like before.


I just love what paint can do! This project was not too labor intensive and didn’t take too long to complete. I did give the wood a quick once over with a sanding block, I just did it by hand, nothing too crazy. And then I removed the drawers and handles. These handles aren’t necessarily my style but rather than replacing them at this point I just spray painted them black, so much better! I used my favorite go to paint color: Benjamin Moore White Dove and used a mini roller to paint as much as a could and a brush to get the edges. I ended up doing 3 coats but you could get away with less if you primed the wood before painting. I absolutely love the way it turned out and so happy to have one more project marked off the list!

Kids Bedroom Design | The Best Light Blocking Curtains

We finally replaced the curtains in Everett’s room and I am so happy with the results. These curtains are amazing by the way and I highly recommend them. They are light blocking and drape very nicely. I went with the 95″ length and hung them higher on the wall, this helps give the illusion of taller ceilings and helps the space feel a little bigger, which is much needed in this small bedroom. Everett’s room will definitely not be the only place I end up hanging these curtains in!

I shared this image on my Instagram (check out the post to see the before photo) where I am starting a new series called “Interior Design in the Pines”. Each Thursday I will plan on sharing something home/decor related and I am super excited to share more on this topic with everyone. Home design is something I truly enjoy plus, the timing couldn’t be better with fall + the holiday season ahead, YAY!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Men’s and Kid’s Favorites

I usually just stock up on basics for Everett during the NSale like jackets and shoes/boots. This is also the perfect time to purchase a car seat or stroller if you’re in the market for one. I absolutely love our nuna stroller and infant car seat, I can’t recommend them enough. We also got the maxi cosi 3 in 1 car seat when Everett outgrew his infant carrier and it’s been great!
