Joann Fabric/ HGTV Home Magic with Fabric

Today I am entering a 30-day challenge with Joann Fabrics and HGTV Home Magic with Fabric campaign.  My challenge (along with three other bloggers) is to use the new HGTV Home line of fabrics, available at Joann Fabrics, to transform a room in my house in 30 days.  Gasp!  Considering I just showed you my guest room, which took 18 months to complete, I am kind of freaking out a bit. But here we go! I chose the very first room in my house that I decorated 5 years ago – Isaac’s room. For the fabrics I chose an emerald green, black, lime and gray combo. 


Jigsaw Malachite, Turtle Shell Slub Malachite, Home Orbit Onyx, Groove Move Malachite

Here is Isaac’s current room.  I got the bunk beds for $25 off Craiglist 4 years ago.  I put about $50 into it with new paint and some beadboard paneling for the back of the desk.  It has served us well.  The bedding was Circo brand from Target that is no longer available.

The valance was the same valance he had when he was a baby.  So we’ve had that for over 7 years.


There is nothing wrong with the room per se, it is just time for a change. Let’s reminisce the DIY projects in the room for a minute, shall we?

In order to decorate Isaac’s wall without spending a lot of cash I made the owl art and starched the fabric tree above his dresser.



I also made the initial bookends to hold a few books on his dresser.  Those little ceramic cars were made by Tim and I while Isaac was still in my belly on one of our date nights.

In the book nook corner of Isaac’s room I reupholstered the little glider using some of his baby bedding and made a fabric book sleeve to hold a few of his books.


And if you remember, a couple of months back, I made this Lego table from an old 1980’s parquet glass inset table.


And here is an overstuffed shelf hanging on his wall filled with all the Lowes Build & Grow clinic projects.  It is all changing though!

My friend Layla’s (The Lettered Cottage) wonder wall, Hanging bed from Country Living and in the home of Pioneer Woman, and the Sawhorse Trestle desk from Restoration Hardware.

It is going to be big, it is going to be awesome.  And it might kill me.  Wish me luck, here goes 30 days to awesome!JoAnn_magicWithFabric_v10
