Kids Room Makeover Project

DIY Minnie Mouse Ears for 1st Birthday Party

I have to admit, I am a DIY addict and love to make things. I would rather try to make something first myself before I go out and buy it.

But since I’ve had my kids, I have found myself putting some of my TO-DO projects on hold because I’ve been so busy. I’m still trying to get into a routine with the new addition to our family.


What DIY projects have I completed this year?


So far, two things that I can think of right off the bat are my little ones first birthday party. She had a Minnie Mouse themed 1st Birthday and I made some Minnie Mouse decor including her Minnie ears.


For my wedding last month I made us our flower crowns.

Like mother like daughter 🙂

One thing that I’ve had on my TO DO list since BEFORE baby was born, was to makeover our extra bedroom as a playroom for the girls.


But here we sit, post baby and the room is still undone.

Well, we were able to repaint the walls and patch up some holes, but other than that, the room is pretty bare. I must have pinned so many kids playroom ideas. If only I can devote some of that time from pinning to actually getting around to re-doing the room 🙂


One day I will be back! I’m really REALLY hoping to get to re-do that room before the end of the year.

    It took us a year to finally decide what we wanted to do and then a month to redo our bath. You’ll get it done. Love the wedding photos.

    I can’t wait to see what the room looks like once it is finished. I also need to makeover my boys rooms.

    It is HARD to get anything done with kids, especially after the 2nd for me! Hope you can get your room done. 🙂
