DIY Chalkboard House

Ava says she wants to be a city bus driver when she grows up (or a paleontologist) and now I think we can add interior designer to the list.  She has a recent love for her design apps that let her pick out wall coverings and furniture for little dollhouses – maybe from watching me constantly arranging and re-arranging things around the house.

She also just learned to draw an outline of a house and loves filling in the rooms – see below.

(And yes, that is someone sitting on the toilet upstairs – she also thinks p-o-o-p is quite hilarious).

And me, I’ve been wanting to do something with washi tape (paper craft tape).

I was really inspired by this cute little creation I saw on petitevanou .

I cut out chalkboard contact paper in the shape of a house, stuck it on a closet door, outlined it with washi tape & voila!

(And it doesn’t have to be a house – what does your kid la la love?)

A little house for Ava to decorate over and over again!

DAYBEDS!

I love daybeds.  Not only do they look cool, but they are functional too.  Here are a few of my faves.

I could move right into this room, snuggle up under that pink throw, and have a wonderful afternoon nap.

So simple, yet so pretty.

If I sat down on this one, you’d have a really hard time getting me to leave.

It looks beyond comfortable.

Daybeds are great for kids too – this little girl’s room is so sweet and serene.

My daughter would totally adore this one!

This nursery almost makes me want another one.

I’d much rather own that daybed. (wink)

I think the idea of putting a daybed outside is genius.

It looks so inviting – the perfect place to sip a cold lemonade on a hot day.

Can’t find the perfect daybed for your needs?  Build one!
