Plank Challenge

Do you like planking?  You should, it’s like, the best exercise ever for your core .  So they tell me.  Planking is also an awesome endeavor for adding punch and pizzazz to any drab wall in your home!  And it’s not hard.  Melissa planked it up hardcore in her bedroom, simply by cutting sheets of plywood into 5″ wide strips in random lengths, staining them a complementary assortment of colors and finish-nailing them straight to the wall.

Strengthen your core!  Beef up your wall!  Planking can do anything.  See more from Melissa at Cornbread and Beans Quilting.

Accent Reinvent

Remember back when accent walls were just like, one random wall painted burnt orange?  We’ve come a long way.  Taryn recently redid this bedroom with an accent wall using a soft and subtle wallpaper that lovingly strokes your hair until you fall asleep, rather than that punches you square in the eyeball as soon as you walk in the door. You dig what I’m shoveling?

I love how she matched it perfectly to the paint color, (Benjamin Moore’s Himalayan Trek, if you were wondering). She cleared out the clutter and pumped up the accesories, and now it’s divine!  See all the details on her blog Chicago ReDesign.

Aye Aye Captain!

Friends, I am up to something secret today.  A little surprise that I’m working on.  It’s close to completion, and I can’t wait to share it with you!  In due time … in due time …  But, right now I have to dash out the door because today is the final day I have to work on it.

So I will leave you now with this amazing vintage boy nursery makeover from Adri at Dream Book Design. Luckily, the pictures speak for themselves.  (They say “WOWZA,” in case you were wondering).

What Bedroom Style Are YOU?

I don’t really have an answer to that question for you.  I just thought that title might grab your attention, much like all those ridiculous quizzes on Facebook.  They are getting out of control. What color is your aura?  What Seinfeld character are you? What ’80s movie are you?  What is your spirit animal? What criminal mastermind from are you? Which US state should you live in? Blah blah blah.  (So maybe I took the spirit animal quiz.  Ok, I did.  My spirit animal is a butterfly, which is totally lame.  I was hoping it would be like a wolverine or something a little cooler).

Anyway, let’s talk about what bedroom style you are.  Do you like rooms with baby blue walls, cheesy wallpaper borders and a high concentration of built-in shelves that seem to have been borrowed from a grocery store?  If so, this before bedroom is for you!  But if not, take a peek at what Meg did in here.  It is SOO much better.  Are those even the same built-ins?  If so, she did an amazing job of updating them. Way to go Meg!
