Call it nesting, blame it on Pinterest, heck, it may just be that I've become quite comfortable and sedentary in our relatively "new" house, but recently, I've been struck by the itch to spice up the place. Throw up some new framed pictures. Switch out hanging wreaths and completely change out the mantle decor. Most recently, however, my sights have been set on decorating another room in the house.
While I should be focusing on Carter's Big Boy room and the impending new nursery, I've taken to filling up just a few of the blank walls that have taken up residence in the downstairs playroom.
You see, Loyals, if you remember correctly, the second anniversary of Our Big Home Purchase is coming up in March. That means we have been living here for nearly two years now. Two years! And although we've taken to filling the house with babies, some of the decor has naturally taken a backseat. And in all of my pregnant, hormonal glory, I've now decided to do something about it.
Carter's official "playroom" is the space beneath the house in the finished basement. This room was initially planned as The Man Cave, however, Toddlers trump Kegerators in my book any day. Sorry, Husband. Therefore, this room has become the veritable "catch all" for most of Carter's play things.
Until this week, the walls of Carter's playroom has been disappointingly bare. And because we'll be welcoming another sweet little boy into our family in just a few short months and The Playroom will be here to stay for at least another mere 5 more years, I decided to have a little fun with the decor. Starting with a chalkboard wall.
