Bedroom under Construction!

Hola my friends! I trust you all had a wonderful weekend? Ours has been super busy with my grandson Cillian’s 2nd brithday – happy birthday my sweet little guy – and Mr. G and I have been repainting the bedroom!


The bedroom hasn’t been painted in 12 or more years!  Each wall is a different colour – bright orange, cobalt blue, fuchsia, and chartreuse!  Needless to say we had to prime the walls first to be able to cover the existing bright paint.  I am going for a more subdued two tone green colour.  Above is a photo of the prep work – taping around things…..the blackboard paint on the wall which originally housed the clipboards – (click here to see the video) will now have a frame around it and be an area where I’ll post inspirational sayings in chalk. It will be great to lie in bed and be inspired just by gazing at the wall!


Here’s a shot of the painted room – almost done – YAY! It’s been kind of challenging since the magic cottage is so tiny – in order to paint the bedroom we had to move all of the bedroom stuff in the living room along with the mattress which is sitting on top of the couch (where we’ve been sleeping).  Needless to say we can’t wait to get this room finished and get our bedroom and living room back!

I took some video footage of the bedroom reno so it will be made into a video soon! Stay tuned!


Happy Birthday Cillian!  Here’s a photo of my daughter Jessica, son-in-law Nis and Cillian with his special birthday cake! As you can see he’s all excited!


Here’s they yummy cake (um……i had to rely on Mr. G’s opinion since it wasn’t gluten-free!) my son-in-law Nis made – isn’t it so pretty in different coloured layers? All in all it was a pretty fun birthday for Cillian and everyone who attended!

See you all on Wednesday!

Love, Violette xo
