Change of plans...

A couple days ago I wrote a post updating you all on our littleLover...
but there has been a slight major change of plans!

In a matter of a week...everything has changed and quite frankly

So instead...
I decided to update you on a few projects that have taken place over the last couple of months!

First...we DIY'd a new ottoman for our living room redo!

Here is how it went down:

Step 1: Cut {or have the hubs cut} MDF to the size you want
 Step 2:  We purchased the legs from Lowes and attached via the hardware seen below
 {I don't know what it is called}
Step 3:  Start layering foam.
{We used spray adhesive to keep from shifting and then added 2 layers of batting over top}
 Step 4:  Line up your fabric and start stapling!
{Always good to enlist extra hands for this part!}

Do you want to see the end result...
well you will have to wait until the final living room reveal!

{Ok...honestly, I just forgot to snap the pic of the final product}

Also, you will see these babies in the living room pics once I post them!
These were my SPLURGE..

well the chairs were given to me by these two lovebirds...

 {they are always making out!!!}

...and I splurged and had them reupholstered!

They are by far my favorite thing in the room! pictures of them yet either!

I think it is important to see the whole room at one time!!

 I do promise to update you all on our little man as soon as we make some decisions!


  1. I have been thinking about you and your little man with the announcements of the last week. I know things are hard and confusing. Praying for you!

  2. Lucky for me I have already seen the ottoman and I love it. I'm really gonna have to take advantage of that creative brain of your's for baby C's room! Love you.
