Teen Girls' Room Reveal {a boho inspired makeover}

Hooooray y'all, the girls' room is done! Don't get me wrong, I do love the process of re-decorating a space, but I truly do LOVE when it's finished too! You may remember that I became a bit obsessed with the bohemian style about this time last year when we remodeled our pop up camper {if you missed that click here}. Well, the girls really loved that style too, and now that they're a bit older, they really wanted to take their room from it's fun and color-filled theme to something a bit more mature, so a little boho chic remodel was in order. This room change had quite a few stages mind you, nothing happens fast around here! If I were a more on the ball blogger, I would have been writing about and photographing the small steps, oh boy, blogger fail. But anywho, it started with a chalkboard wall that literally and immediately changed the vibe in the whole room. It was quite amazing, their room really got it's moody on!

Aaaaaand, there it sat for the longest while, a chalkboard wall. We all began scrimping and saving pennies, and searching sales at Urban Outfitters. Since last year, Olivia had been confiscating any and all change she found around the house and suddenly she developed a love of doing her Daddy's laundry, must of had something to do with the fact that he leaves change in his pockets and it comes out in the wash- ha! She filled jars with change and would take them to convert into real money for her room savings jar. Sofia would add money to the jar with her Christmas money and allowance, so you see, this room has been quite a collaboration!

We began slowly collecting pieces for the room and putting them in a box. Finally after a few months we were ready to transform this room! One of the key elements for the girls room was a Crosley Record Player. I scoured Ebay forever, and finally found a refurbished model that was within our budget. I was terrified that it would come and be a disappointment, but I was bowled over, it worked! My how I've missed the sound of a turntable! The girls started collecting records from thrift stores and not a day goes by that I don't hear the most wonderful music coming from their room.

Another thing you may notice is the addition of plants. I love the plants and I'm sure we'll gradually add even more. They're key to the bohemian theme and they really do breathe life into any room. Love, love them!

There's so much more we could have done, but this was what we could do and still stay within our budget, and we can always add more pieces as we save more money. Hey, there's always lots of Daddy's laundry to do!

Camper Reveal {part two}

I really hope y'all enjoyed Monday's camper reveal! Today I'm sharing a detailed source list for all the goodies inside. I began dreaming of a bohemian vibe for this camper and I wanted it to have a little gypsy appeal but it had to have some vintage thrown in for good measure too. I have never decorated in a bohemian style before and it was challenging for me at first. I was a little uncomfortable with the style because there's no real rules, bohemian by it's very nature is mismatched. When styling bohemian, remember "what goes best with a pattern? Why, another pattern of course." I thought I'd start with my curtains. 

I'd been swooning over the Joel Dewberry patterns for their fun vintage and colorful vibe. Then, right to Urban Outfitters for the bed duvets and 4 more key pieces.

This is usually how I go about styling any space, pick out a handful of key pieces that I love and build the rest of the decor around them.

Finally........... A Craft {easy macrame plant hanger}

Well, it's been long enough, right???? No crafty inspiration on this blog for like e-v-e-r huh? I've missed it, so today I'm sharing a little simple craft for bigs and littles alike. We are creating a little bohemian oasis in our pop-up and I've been wanting to make one of these little macrame plant hangers to go with us on our travels. I have a little spot all picked out for it over the mini kitchen area. If you're as old as me, you may have had these in your home growing up. I had one hanging in my room and it was sooooooo groovy......... yeah, I'm old.

Here's What You'll Need:
A roll of twine of your choice [I'm using a roll of polished hemp for mine}
A plant of your choice
Wow, that's it {told you it was easy!}

I'm totally a YouTube kinda gal and I found a tutorial with super easy instructions on making a macrame plant hanger. I'm not even going to attempt any kind of tutorial here because this YouTuber explains it waaaaay better than I ever could. Click HERE to check out her easy-peasy tutorial.

Isn't this just the cutest little thing???? It helps to have help with all the rope tying but it can be done by just you. It was so quick and easy, loved the YouTube tutorial! I'm so gonna make more of these! Hope y'all have been inspired to make one for your home sweet home.

A Camper Redo {part two}

So, I'm slowly but surely making progress in the camper. The curtains are done! I wanted them to be lined, but I didn't want to purchase more fabric. I decided to use the white lining from the original curtains and it worked out perfectly. I used Velcro to attach them to the camper windows, making removal for storage and cleaning super easy. 

And here's my favorite new addition to the camper.

We're almost done, so the next post will be the big camper reveal. Are you feeling the excitement? I sure am!
