This past weekend I celebrated Ben's birthday dinner with his family. The food was delicious and I ate way too much... the cheesecake at Cheesecake really gets ya. Since I am trying to blog more outfits I thought I would put this one up here. BTW, I am telling you.. if you want cheap, cute shoe options check out Charlotte Russe. I haven't been in there in years and quickly went in there one day and was shocked at how much I liked the shoes. Hope everyone had a great weekend!

I am so excited over here because Shelby's room is finally done!! This is one of my first "full-room" projects that I got to start with a completely blank canvas. She didn't give me any direction so I tried to make it as much like her as I possibly could. If you know Shelby, you know shes loud, huge personality, and an amazing singer. Because music is such a huge part of her life, I wanted to incorporate it in a cool, teenage way. I love the way her lyric wall turned out and think it really gives the room a "wow" aspect (whether that's a good wow or not;). Make sure to check out all the DIY's I completed with this room! Lyric Wall, Engineered Prints, Wire Photo Wall, and Copper Curtain Rod. 


I am so excited about this DIY! Throughout the process of designing Shelby's room I have constantly changed my minds about the certain things I want. However, this was one of the only things that I knew I wanted. In the beginning I didn't think I was going to make these myself but after seeing the price tag of these bad boys in stores I knew that if I wanted it I needed to make it myself and luckily for they were so easy! AND cheap! Less than 10 dollars per rod.. pretty good if you ask me. 


Shelby's room has a wall that I put little to no thought too (which considering it was the first wall you see, I definitely should have!). One day when I was scrolling Pinterest I found a wire hanging photo rack that I LOVED from Urban Outfitters...but at 59 dollars each that just wasn't in my budget (college tuition to pay here people).


wood table numbers | a fabulous fete:
I am constantly going through phases where I use Pinterest a lot and other times where I don't go on for a few weeks. I really do love Pinterest though. I think its a genius database for creators and people that want inspiration. I always enjoying sharing with you different things that have caught my eye so here we go!


When I first started envisioning Shelby's room I wanted to put lights into the wall (like the ones pictured below). Unfortunately, because we are planning on putting our selling our house within the year, that was unrealistic. So, while at Ikea I found very similar lights that I would have wanted to put on the wall. We actually purchased two so they could go on either side of her bed and when I go to college I will be taking one (lucked out on that one;).
