When we moved into our home a little over two years ago, the walls had been freshly painted – which was so great for us because I had a 2 year old, and a 4month old.

Granted, it was tough to find the time to dedicate to a room that is SO easy to close the door to.  I imagine a lot of people are in the same place.  When company is heading over: we simply take anything that we don’t have a place for {Read More}
