Today at the Romanos/Jantzen house...

We live in a 2 bedroom house.
One room is my craft room

the other room is Riley's music room

We wanted our own space for things so we sacrificed the bedroom. We have a nook in our living room so that is where we placed the bed. It's kinda plain there and we don't want to paint it because this is a rent home and that is just another wall to paint back white when we move.
So today we created some simple wall art to put in our bednook!

We used 4 cork squares and dark brown spray paint

Applied two coats

Let dry and that is complete!
Next we hung the cork on the wall

We got these wallflower wall decor at Blue 7 so what is what we are putting on the cork.

Here's our bednook

and here is the finished product

We'll probably add a curtain to separate the space eventually.
Other than that today, I've been busy making owl snugglies!

Tonight is the new season of The Office!! Yay! As well as Grey's Anatomy but they start at the same time. Phooey. But I'm going to choose The Office.

What new projects are you working on?


  1. What a cute idea! I love your bedspread...did you make this as well? I am choosing the Office also..Grey's got to dramatic for me last year. I have a notepad that says I heart Jim.

  2. Very neat idea! I love the flower's. I*m a sucker for lotus flowers. You guys did a good job for the wall pieces. 2 thumbs up!

  3. Who doesn't want a notepad that says I heart Jim!? Wasn't the show great! Love it! So glad it was an hour:)

  4. Awesome idea! It looks great! I can't wait until we upgrade our home so I can have my own craft room!!

  5. I love it!

    you don't how many times I've looked around my kids' bedroom with it's beautiful bright open space and thought,"This should be my studio!". Now I just have to figure out what to do with the kids... :P

    Projects? I'm working on trying to get over being sick. Then we'll see :)

  6. i love your little art projects you share. Tom and I share a room for my craft space and his office space, I definitely have 2/3 of the room and craft stuff ends up on his desk all the time!

  7. awwies! it's cute!

    i've got projects laying all over the house in hopes of a shop update sometime soon.

  8. That is crazy. I have my own craft room and my boyfriend has a music room tooooo. The only diff is that we actually have a bedroom. But let me tell you, you two make it look so cool to have a bed nook. Our bedroom is quite boring in comparison.

    Good choice...the office.

  9. You guys are so creative! I love that you have two craft rooms and a bed nook! I'm just about ready to take over our bedroom and move it to the 1/3 of the attic I currently use for art! Now to get the hubby on board...
    I just finished some custom projects as seen on my blog!

  10. What a neat idea!

    That's awesome that you have your own rooms for your projects! My boyfriend and I live in a small one bedroom apartment now, but we dream of the day when I can have a craft room and he can have a music room.

  11. Ooh, the wall art looks great!
    And I love that quilt on your bed :)
