I HOPE YOU HAVE ENJOYED THIS FINAL REVEAL!!!!

ALL IN ALL THIS WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE…I CHERISHED THE TIME I SPENT WITH MY SON ON HIS FIRST “OWN” ROOM…OTHER THAN THE ONE ROOM HE OCCUPIED A CRIB IN THE NURSERY. IT WAS SOMETHING I WISH I COULD GO BACK AND DO OVER AND OVER AGAIN….DESPITE OUR DIFFERENT TASTES AND STYLES…

MY BABY WILL ALWAYS BE MY BABY

MY BABY WILL ALWAYS BE MY BABY

OUR CHILDREN GROW UP TOO FAST…AND THIS IS THE ROOM WHERE COOPER PLAYED FOR HOURS WITH LEGOS AND THE ROOM THAT COOPER WILL LEAVE FROM FOR COLLEGE … HE MADE IT HIS OWN…AND THE LEVEL OF COMPROMISE WAS GOOD FOR ME …

COOPER AND PHOEBE

COOPER AND PHOEBE

IT WAS A LESSON IN RESTRAINT…BUT I DO BELIEVE THAT KIDS ROOM…TEEN ROOMS ESPECIALLY…NEED TO BE STREAMLINED…KIND OF A BLANK SLATE AT THE ONSET…WITH LOTS OF ROOM FOR THEM TO EXPRESS WHO THEY ARE…WHO THEY ARE BECOMING…THE TRUE REVEAL OF THIS ROOM WILL TAKE PLACE OVER THE NEXT 4 YEARS…AS COOP EXPERIENCES LIFE!

THANKS FOR FOLLOWING ALONG….

MONDAY MAKEOVER – PART 2 – LEFTOVER LUXURIES

LEFTOVER LUXURIES

Leftover Luxuries is the brain child of a friend of mine, an interior designer, who saw a need…and filled it.

“Leftover Luxuries bi-annual, pop-up sale events are held in select cities and provides an opportunity for you to put cash in your pocket while creating an upscale retail atmosphere for new purchases. Each sale features pre-approved, locally consigned high-end or designer home furnishings and accessories, artwork, clothing, jewelry, handbags, shoes and other unique finds at a fraction of the original retail price.”

They now have locations all over the country!!

AND THEY ALSO HAVE AN ONLINE STORE!!!

Lucky for me…there is a WAREHOUSE location in Charlottesville WHERE THEY take pre-approved items in from any location. Not just the Virginia area. The warehouse space makes it easier to be able to move your items between our large sale events. Everything is still subject to approval by a Leftover Luxuries agent.  Bonus – at the warehouse you get to chat with Wendy and Tricia who are wonderful!!!

Warehouse – open every Thursday, Friday & Saturday, 10am – 6pm!

LAST WEEK I VISITED LEFTOVER LUXURIES AND SOLVED MY

“WE HAVE no place to eat because Mom has taken over the Dining room as her Art Studio” …

issue….

MY NEW TABLE AND CHAIRS!!! THIS ADDITION HAS TRANSFORMED OUR DAILY LIFE!!!

MY NEW TABLE AND CHAIRS!!! THIS ADDITION HAS TRANSFORMED OUR DAILY LIFE!!!

SO OF COURSE, ME BEING ..WELL “ME”...

I HAD TO PAINT THE ROOM OVER…

AND DO SOME SERIOUS REARRANGING…THE PINK LIVING ROOM CURTAINS ARE NOW IN THIS ROOM!

NEXT WEEK..I WILL SHOW YOU THE “NEW IMPROVED FAMILY ROOM!” 

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

SOMETIMES IT IS THE QUICKEST AND EASIEST CHANGES

THAT HAVE THE BIGGEST IMPACT!

SEA SALT LIVING ROOM

SEA SALT LIVING ROOM

THIS IS THE CASE WITH A RECENT “MAKEOVER” WHICH INVOLVED ME DOING ONE THING AND ONE THING ONLY..

THE LIVING ROOM WITHOUT CURTAINS..LIGHTER

THE LIVING ROOM WITHOUT CURTAINS..LIGHTER..

TAKING DOWN THE LIVING ROOM DRAPES….WELL, AND I ALSO SWAPPED OUT SOME OLD ART FOR NEW AND PUT COOPER’S OLD  CHAMPAIGN DESK (CAUSE HE GOT TATE’S OLD IKEA DESK!!!)

LIGHTER AND BRIGHTER

LIGHTER AND BRIGHTER

THE ROOM IS PAINTED SHERWINN WILLIAMS “SEA SALT” A COLOR I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!! IT READS GREY, BLUE, AND BLUE-GREY DEPENDING UPON THE OTHER COLORS AND THE TIME OF DAY…I LIKE ITS VERSATILITY!

THE ROOM SEEMS BIGGER AND LESS CLUTTERY SIMPLY BY REMOVING THE DRAPES.

THE ROOM SEEMS BIGGER AND LESS CLUTTERY SIMPLY BY REMOVING THE DRAPES.

I MOVED THE DRAPES TO THE OTHER LIVING ROOM…THE WORK WELL WITH ALL OF THE PINK, BUT AGAIN THAT ROOM IS BEGINNING TO  FEEL A SHADE DARK TO ME SO WE SHALL SEE…

FOR NOW…WE JUST SIT BACK AND ENJOY THE LIGHT.

RUNNING ERRANDS

I get so distracted at home

that I often go to the Mudhouse, my favorite local coffee shop, to get work done. Such was the case the other day. I ordered my “usual” – a small latte and decadent peanut butter cookie, settled into a table,  plugged myself in and just as I got myself all situated    …..   a text from my College Freshman,  Tate,  popped up:

“Hey Mom, are you in town?”

I replied “No, but I can be!”

He had an appointment for a haircut and his usual ride was busy. I happily swept up my laptop and latte, grabbed my phone and hopped in my car to run into town

HE SAYS JUMP – I SAY “HOW HIGH?”

20 minutes later my skinny firstborn climbed into the passenger seat. Normally a quiet co-pilot,  he instead chatted easily and caught me up on college life : his grades and tests and projects and roommate and new friends and old friends.  I paid for his hair cut and was more than happy to buy his over priced gels and hair products. I asked him if he needed anything else,” you know, since you have me here!” ….and he said “well, I could use some socks” and off we drove to the sporting goods store for some spiffy new socks. We finished up our errands and he needed to get back.

I pulled up to the dorm,  dropped him off and gave him a HUGE hug and a kiss, told him how much I loved him and how proud I am of him. And I drove away.

All in all it was about an hour and a half. And I have to say…it was the happiest I had been in a while.

See, when people used to say, “it goes fast! make sure to enjoy the little things.” I never included running errands as one of those “memory making” little moments. Running errands was the time that used to not count….the time in between the good stuff. But, I can tell you now, that running errands with my 19 year old, who no longer lives in our house or rummages around in our fridge or hums in the bathroom…and the hall and the living room…IS THE GOOD STUFF.
