    Playroom Makeover

    Have you seen those pictures of tornado or hurricane damage after the storms? Where it’s just piles of rubble? Houses are not even recognizable, cars are crushed, trees are snapped + things like ovens are in the middle of fields? Well that’s about what my kids’ playroom looked like. No seriously. Look at this picture:

    There is a floor under there somewhere, I promise. This is the chaos that I was left with after many, many nights of just throwing all the toys in there + shutting the door so I didn’t have to look at it. Then the next day, the kids would go in there + get what they wanted, bring it in the living room to play with + then we’d repeat the whole process again + again.

    It was totally my fault + I accept the blame. It got way out of control. Something had to be done.

    So when we were quarantined in our house for weeks, I finally had the time to really roll up my sleeves + turn this around.

    The first night I went to work in there, my only goal was to be able to make a path so you could actually walk in the room. The next goal was to be able to see the whole floor.

    Slowly but surely, the floor made an appearance. I got a lot of trash thrown away + got things out of there that didn’t belong.

    Once I got everything somewhat neat, I started shopping online for things to spruce up this space + organize their toys more.

    It took some legit magic, but now their playroom looks like this:

    Can you even believe this is the same room?!? I absolutely love the way it turned out! The dots on the wall are my favorite! They are from Wayfair as well as the map canvas + one of the toy organizers. The other toy organizer is from Walmart. The three canvas pictures of the babies are from Walmart too. The white + black bins are from Amazon + the little signs on either side of the window are from Hobby Lobby! All of these things were very affordable! I have linked everything I could here!

    If you think there’s a room in your house that is beyond help, just know that it isn’t! Anything is possible if I can turn this madness around!

    What room in your house needs a makeover?!? Let me know!

    Our Home

    I am absolutely obsessed with our home.

    And I have good reason to be. I was NOT obsessed with our first home. Not at all. I was obsessed with how much I despised it.

    We rushed into getting our first home. I had found out I was pregnant, and we were in a 2 bedroom apartment. We needed a house. So i really wish that we would’ve looked at more places and spent more time researching.

    My husband was happy with it. He didn’t want to move. Then he got a job opportunity that would mean we would have to move. It was kind of perfect timing. I got what I wanted without it being JUST because I hated our current home.

    When we started looking again, we definitely covered our ground this time. We looked at what seems like thousands of houses. I wanted an older house that had been fixed up. My husband wanted a new house.

    Well, we kind of compromised. Yes we got a new house, but in an older neighborhood. Our home was built on an empty lot in a very established neighborhood on a lake, so it has the charm but also has all the new features.

    We are so close to the downtown area of our town and not far at all from the “big city” of Greenville. We live in a great location. It feels like it’s out in the country, but we’re close to everything we need.

    Our home has the master bedroom and three secondary bedrooms upstairs. There are two full bathrooms and a loft area upstairs, as well as a laundry room.

    The downstairs has the open concept kitchen, eat in kitchen, and living room, a ¾ bath, and another bedroom that we use as a playroom.

    We also have a screened in porch that we love. We have a nice front porch as well and a long driveway that the kids love to play in.

    Here are some pictures of our home. I hope you love it as much as I do. Leave me a comment with your favorite part.
