WhooHoo Wednesday

There was a lot of WhooHooing going on over here which is why my WhooHoo Wednesday post is a day late! Ha! I just am really loving Marla's new linky party. Be sure to stop on over and join in on the fun.

I saw this shelf a few months back and fell in LOVE with it!! Rhonda over at Blue Creek Home had me soo envious over her beautiful shelf that she created. If you have not seen her redo on it go here. I would visit Rhonda frequently just so I could lust over her shelf. That and she has a great sense of style. I love her master bath!

Low and behold what did Littliest and I find at GW on Tuesday!!?? I saw it and snatched it right up all the while running down the isle...okay walking as quickly as one can with an elephant of a shelf and a 4 yr old tagging behind...and WhooHooing the entire way up to the register. The lady asked me if I needed help to my car and I said no thanks. Heavens no is what I was thinking and risk having somebody run off with my find!Ha! I NEVER find a single thing at GW so I was double excited.

What's more to be excited about is the price. Can ya see it!? Yep, that's right just $7.99 ladies!! So later that afternoon after picking up Oldest from school....

and instead of doing this....(did I really just show ya'll my clean clothes thrown on the living room floor!? Just keeping it real and yes they are all folded now and headed to their rightful owners drawers!;))

I did a little of this! I busted out my Christmas present that The Nana and The Papa gave me. It had been patiently waiting to help me tackle my never ending list of projects.

On Wed I did a little of this because it was oh soo beautiful outside that I just could not stand being the unorganized pit um I mean gargae one more minute.

We also did a little of this and yes in our, well his pjs because ya know that is how we roll!

Had a lot of this and it was soo well worth it! Not only did I get to work right away...not five months later...on a project that I just knew in my head I would love Littliest learned that he is now tall enough to turn the bathroom light on and off! That means no more leaving the half bath light on ALL day long. Ya, we are real green here that way. Also we had swim lessons and Oldest swam on his back all the across the pool for the very first time! Now if all that is not worth several WhooHoos I don't know what is!
Hope your week is going great! Be sure to stop back by soon for the big reveal!

Mother In Law Suite

Hope ya'll had a wonderful weekend! Ours was pleasant and even though it called for storms on Saturday the day actually was sunny and beautiful. My hearts and prayers do go out to those effected by the terrible storms that passed us by.
Okay ladies, I have been debating on our guest room / mother in law suite. I need some feedback. What I thought that I was doing I am now thinking of changing. Back in the fall I purchased this Country Living bedding from Kmart. My original thinking was to paint the walls blue like the pic and maybe eventually add the board and batten. We have a headboard we made from a door and I was going to strip it form the pinky mauvy color it currently is and paint/distress it black. I was going to go with a blue/black/white theme.

Then I started thinking how expected that is and how more imaginative it could be. I am now thinking of painting the headboard red like this one!? That way the pink mauvy color does not need to be stripped but I can call it a primer.Ha!

The bedding has to stay the same because at this time I just do not have the funds to redo it totally. So now I want to find a throw/blanket in yellow to lay at the end of the bed.
I have a Better Homes & Garden table almost exactly like this as a side table and then a white cottage looking table that I use to have in the nursery on the other side.
Do you think it would all flow and has the possibility of looking like a welcoming comfy french country cottage chic retreat?? Not so sure about the wall color either. Should I go blue as originally planned or a light yellow or a creamy antique white? I am planning on accessorizing with a white rocking chair again from the old nursery and doing a plate display on the wall. I also hope to find some old vintage trays with flowers painted on them. I have seen them around blog land in black and some even in red! I have been on the hunt but no luck thus far. I also am on the hunt for a china cabinet that I will do in a distressed black. I will take out the glass and replace with chicken wire and a fab behind that. It will go on the opposite wall as the bed and be a place to store some clothes of our guest and hopefully a small flat screen TV.
What kind of curtains should I do?? I was going to do white sheets hanging from vintage hangers. Now with the color change not sure that will look right.
I am hoping to start on the transformation this week. Also whatever I do will have to spill over into the adjoining bath. That inspiration will come from the bedroom. So ladies let me know what ya think!???
