Kid-a-riffic

Trying to keep this short and sweet because I’m having this super rad computer issue where I’m going along just fine, typeity type typing, and then the whole system rudely powers down out of nowhere and I lose everything I’ve been working on, and I want to punch my computer in the face.

So please enjoy this adorable kid kitchen from Better After reader Heather, who had been on the hunt for the perfect piece of furniture for over a year. She finally found it, where else, behind a dirty curtain at a flea market held in an abandoned sock factory.  What, did you think I was going to say Craigslist?

 She got it for a steal at $10, and turned it into the adorable play set you see before you.  Is that a tiny cow in the window?  So cute!

PS: In addition to my super rad computer being un-rad, I’m also having a problem with my feed.  If you are an email subscriber, you probably haven’t been receiving any emails all month!  Yikes!  I’m working on that now.  (If only I could work more than six minutes at a time before my computer shuts itself off).  Hhnnnnrg! *grunt of frustration**

Play It Again

Is there anything more oppressive than floor to ceiling brown paneling?  In a basement, no less?  It wasn’t a space that sparked much creative brain activity, other than maybe my favorite game, “What’s The Best Way To Escape This Area In A Hostage Situation?”  Yeah. I can be a little paranoid sometimes.  My other favorite game is “Remember Everything About This Exact Moment In Case You Need It Later For An Alibi.”  But ANYWAY. Enough about me.

Let’s talk about the gorgeous play-room Brit turned it into!  It’s just so darn happy!  Maximum creative-juicing happening in here for sure.  See that storage unit in the back?  It’s an Ikea hack!  Love that.  So much more to see on her blog House Updated.

Because they’re the real masters anyway!

Can someone please explain to me the concept of the master bedroom?  Sure, as ‘master’ of the house, I appreciate a spacious bedroom, but they are getting out of hand lately! I walked through a model home recently, just a standard suburban style home, and the master bedroom had a fireplace, a separate lounge area with a TV nook and a wetbar, an exercise room, a master closet the size of a bedroom, and a shower that could have easily fit twelve people.  It was 1/3 of the entire house! Who spends that much time in their bedroom? I guess if you’ve been quarantined maybe?  Or have no hobbies other than working out and showering?

Sarah’s master bedroom was not of ridiculous proportions, but it was the largest room in the house, and was a big waste of space.  So she gave it to her daughters!  Looks like they  are loving and using every adorable inch.  So cute.

Chartreuse with Envy

So this shocking shade of chartreuse  was … fun.  And by ‘fun’ I mean ‘better than nothing.’  (Woah. My spellchecker is freaking out right now and telling me that I’m spelling ‘nothing’ wrong.  I’m pretty sure I’m not.  Nothing.  That looks right to me.  Now it says I spelled ME wrong!  This thing is haunted).

Anyway, let’s just say it, this paint color was the worst. And by ‘the worst,’ I mean, ‘actually not that bad in tiny doses.’ For example: a few stripes on the rug in the after room, which, by the way, is so sock-knocking-off spectacular that my inner tween boy is jealous.  I don’t actually have an inner tween boy, but if I did, he’d totally want to play Minecraft in here all day.

From Jessie at Mix and Chic.
