DIY Gamer Canvas Art

This DIY Gamer Canvas Art was a fun project my son and I made together. 
It's a part of today's theme for #BoyMomMadness: DIY!

As I've been talky-talkin' about, we're knee deep in a room redo for my big boy. He's (sadly) outgrown his cute little cowpoke-themed room and is D-O-N-E-DONE with anything bandana printed or denim. His vision for the room was to haul in a bunch of vintage...ahem, retro video game machines and throw down a sleeping bag in the middle of the madness. I have a slightly different plan. But I thought I'd put the usual vintage spin on the room and just have small gaming touches here and there. This is one of our first projects. Check out how easy it was below.

My Boys' Rooms

Today, I'm a part of a really fun blog hop that's all about the BOYS! This week, we're celebrating "Boy Mom Madness" in all sorts of ways. Today, we're sharing our boys' bedrooms. I'm literally smack dab in the middle of a makeover of my older son's room (I was truly hoping to have it finished by today...however, it's been a doozy of a month). But, below is just a little look at the spaces they call their own. And of course, check out these GORGEOUS rooms from my boy mom bloggy friends, too.

This week's series is so much fun! While my boys' rooms are somewhat simple, they're very special places in our homes. They're their havens. Their own little pieces of the world. While my older son's room hadn't been touched in six years (have mercy), I'm still showing the photos of the way it looked (before this month, when I started ripping into it. Literally.). Check out the fun below.

Inspiration Monday

I'm so happy you're here. Inspiration Monday is my favorite way to kick off a week. I've created my own craziness this past week (what's new, right?). I started ripping off wallpaper in my older son's room...and I'm still at it (have mercy). Hoping to start painting it asap! Will be sharing some plans for it later this week here (along with an awesome week filled to the brim with BOY projects...it's so fun, y'all!).

But first...LET'S GET THIS PARTY STARTED!
By linking up here, your project is seen on SEVEN blogs at the same time!

We have some BEAUTIFUL and full-of-spring features today.
This week's picks were selected by Debbie from Refresh Restyle>>>

Take Me to New York Free Printable

Last week, we did something a little crazy. We had been chatting about a family trip to NYC since I went there in October. A couple of months ago, we decided to wait to do it until summertime. We thought we'd tack on Niagara Falls and make a big NY state trip out of it...maybe even Canada, too. But, then we got a bit sad about not going in March (which is what our original plans had been). Three and a half days before spring break, I just went for it and booked the trip we had originally wanted. We're not really spontaneous people, so this was pretty crazy for us! But, wow...what a great decision (and we got an awesome last minute deal, too...score!). I created this printable out of my love for this incredible city. Download yours below.
