Now that a lot of the big projects (like our kitchen !) are wrapping up, I have started to work on little projects around the house .
The little projects are the ones that make our home feel more personal to me .
Yesterday I spent some time in Riley's room working on a vanity area for her to display her jewelry .
She LOVES jewelry of any kind and has amassed quite a collection of plastic, beaded, sparkly baubles along with a huge pile of Silly Bands .
Her poor jewelry box was stuffed so full that the lid no longer closed .
In an effort to save the jewelry box I decided to display some of her necklaces and bracelets by hanging them on a pair of antlers that I attached to the wall .
The remaining jewelry is stored in easy to reach containers on her desk . I like the way it looks because the colors add some punch to the room and you can get a sense of her personality by seeing the items that mean so much to her . She loves to sort the bracelets and rearrange the necklaces, etc . It is fun to see her have so much pride in her room . Plus it makes it easier to convince her to clean it up because she wants it to look "pretty" at all times . Ha .
And, back to the big projects, here is a sneak peek of our kitchen :
We just had our backsplash installed this week . It is so close to being completely finished just in time for the holidays !
