I'm Julie, a feisty, but rather shy redhead from New York, who moved to the Midwest to follow my dreams (and the love of my life). I'm passionate about decorating our home with my own unique affordable DIY style which is a mix of eclectic, contemporary, traditional, with a splash of country. I don't follow the crowd, but trust my gut instead. I hope to inspire you to try some of my ideas. I also love to cook and share my easy recipes. My family begs me to make my homemade meatballs and pizza. I hope you will try them and hang out with me for a while or subscribe to my e-mail letter here:

Daphne’s Room

I have to admit that when I noticed Thrifty Decor Chick was having a children’s bedroom link party, I decided to finally do what I have been wanting to do for months…

get upstairs…

DUST!

Yes…dust!  Does anyone else find it difficult to find time to dust?!  Then once you do it…it comes back in 2 days.  Alwell…it’s dust free in Daphne’s room for now…hope you enjoy a peak inside my oldest daughter Daphne’s room.  She is 12!

I have to mention that her and her sister, Val, are so tight, that they share this room even though Val has her own next door.

I love that they want to be together :)  I’ve never said no to letting them sleep in the same room.

Knock knock!  Can we come in Daphne?

I mean…aka Roxas???

Daphne is very good at keeping her room tidy.  It’s taken a little training, but she likes it neat (mission accomplished!).Have you ever shined  a flash light on a spinning disco ball in the dark?

Good way to help get the kids sleepy :)

It took me a couple years to figure out that this is Daphne’s space…being the decorator that I am, I tend to want the colors I want.Well…I zipped my mouth and so glad I did.  It’s her’s…all her’s, and she deserves that choice.

So…Daphne chose the colors of the walls and I think I picked the comforters out at Target (I wash those a lot, so nothing too expensive).

My Dad painted for us…thanks Grandpa!!  You are a great painter!

My Dad is 78 this year and he still paints like a champ!!

Daphne is an artist…a writer too.  She’s writing a novel.Totally serious.

I’ll let you know when it’s published!

Your children’s artwork is a great way to decorate their walls and it increases self esteem!

Posters are still in too!

& so cheap! (Walmart)

*”tac” from hardware stores is a great way to hang things-teacher’s use it and it doesn’t ruin the walls or artwork

I added this next pic at Daphne’s request :
Got hungry kids?
Target clock…lunch time or bedtime?

Dear ceiling fan…Do I like you or not?  I am puzzled by you.  Daphne likes you, so I guess you can stay.It is a very pretty craftsman style fan, just belongs in a family room.  It was here when we bought the house.

I’ve always loved round mirrored dressers…&

the wig???
That’s part of Daphne’s costume.  It’s pretty cool!  The bottles are from a thrift store…she found them on her own.  Good eye!

Hey, Val…remember this place next door?They share a walk in closet in between here, then that’s Valerie’s room.  I’ll post on that soon!

Rope lights from Home Depot…$10.
Daphne’s goldfish is almost a year old!  Her name is Roxas too!
Thanks for stopping by…
