Hello Again

So I have taken a very long hiatus from blogging.  Unfortunately, I have found the it takes a lot of time and energy to write posts and edit photos on top of documenting projects.  I got a bit burned out and wanted to focus more on my kiddos.  There is still lots of progress in the Yoast household so I hope to update ya’ll on things we have been working on since my last post.  I will start with the playroom.  I shared an inspiration board with you several months ago in this post.  Below are pics of the current space:

Playroom Bookcase

All of the furniture was transplanted from other parts of the house.  A few new Dollar Store bins were purchased, the chalk paint, and the bean bags were gifts from Santa.  I made the fabric covered cork boards sitting on top of the bookcase.  I did not use the fabric from my inspiration board because I could only find it in Canada and it would have cost me a fortune to ship.  I love the fabric I used, it’s Waverly Shine On Twill Americana.


The chalk wall is a big hit.

Labeled bins help the kids put stuff back where it belongs but I will admit most of the time this room is a mess and I just close the door.

The last photo is a DIY art project I made using an old game of Scrabble, some scrapbook paper and an IKEA frame.  It didn’t cost me a dime and I love it!  I hope to have another post for you up soon so stay tuned.
