Ellie's room..a "b.p" classic

Before Pinterest I had to think of all my own ideas.

C'mon now.

I don't know who has that kind of time.

Isn't that really the beauty of pinterest? You don't even have to think anymore. People have already thought of it for you, figured out the fastest and easiest way to do it, and they've conveniently fashioned a tutorial to quickly make that idea a real life dream come true.

Ellie's room is a BP room.  That "Before Pinterest" time was a glorious one.  Who knew I could be so creative all by myself?  Although I can't imagine going back to the days of "thinking", I am happy for what they taught me.

I feel like this tree is kind of spooky and whimsical. I made the leaves from scrapbook paper and after trial and error, finally found a way to keep them on the wall. Glue dots!

These bookshelves are made from spice racks I thrifted for about 75 cents. Score.

What kind of mom would I be if I didn't paint a quote on Elle's wall...I shudder at the thought.

Dear B.P, 

You will always hold a special place in my heart. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go pin someone else's ideas.

Love, Me

* We're remodeling our guest bathroom this week. My house looks like a junkyard and one bathroom for 8 people is not as glamorous as it sounds...
