DIY Farmhouse Baby GateĀ 

/ July 17, 2017

Stairs and toddlers do not mix. We have a pretty bland/standard baby gate for the bottom of our stairs but nothing for the top so here we are, again… Essentially the playroom has easy access to two flights of stairs and we have a toddler who sees that as an opportunity to escape! It’s impossible to clean her room, put…

Pink + Mint + Gold Nursery Reveal

/ June 30, 2017

I am not ready to call her a toddler, so here is Cameron’s Pink, Mint and Gold Nursery Reveal. I’m not too crazy on lots of different colors so we did a lot of white as well to keep it as calm and neutral as possible. But she is my girly girl, so it’s a little glam too. There will…
