i heart ruffles.

Welp, here we are Sunday evening and still no "after" photos of Jack's big boy room.

What can I do?
It's January. In Ohio.
And I honestly cannot tell you the last time the sky wasn't gray.

To think, I love gray.
Just not when it's the color of the sky.
Not for weeks at a time.

So, what's a girl to do?
When the temperatures are too frigid to paint (even in the garage).
And the skies are so gray?
Well, move on to another room makeover of course!

The newest 'updated on the tightest of budgets and within the general likes of homeowners in our area' room in the house is the guest/Jack's bathroom.

What exactly does all that in italics mean, you ask?

Well, this isn't our forever home. Oh no, far from it.
So when we update, we have to keep in mind not to update so specific to our likes and not over-update it and it not be worth our investment considering the market we're in.

So it's nothing spectacular.
But, it's better. Alot better.

And, it's not done yet but I'm already seriously considering a "splurge item".
Since nothing in the room was a splurge, and the one I'm considering can go with us to our forever home when that day comes.

That's not the bathroom.


And, I'm unsure of where I came across that picture.
But it's beautiful, wouldn't ya say?

The wall color is "Horizon" by Benjamin Moore.
And that's the color I painted Jack's room and the bathroom.

Soooo, I'm torn between which of these to go with:

my all time favorite item from Anthropologie?
If ever there was perfection found in a shower curtain, that's it.

 or one of these Urban Outfitters beauties?

Which would you pick?

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.

We had family in town, and my sister and neice are here tonight because my neice turns 4 tomorrow and we plan to have a super fun time with the kids...
going out for breakfast...
baking cupcakes...
opening presents for our upcoming beach trip...
laughing, hugging, cuddling
the day away.


Hope your week gets off to a great start!


  1. i love all of those so much! but i would go with the two more colorful ones at the top for a bit of playfulness since it's partially your sons bathroom...
    and i love grey too!

  2. Oh my gosh...your blog is sooooo lovely!! I would love a bathroom like that! And I would pick the turquoise ruffled shower curtain!! LOVE IT:)

  3. Definitely the Anthro one... I've always loved it too!

  4. All gorgeous but I especially love the Anthro! I think you have to go for it since it's your original love.

  5. Yea I say go Anthro... like you said you've been in love with it for a while :)

  6. I love the Anthro one. But, I also like the white one...if you're walls were a fun color...say, teal or coral ;)
