We over here have been working on some new year's goals. Darth Hubby has cut back on video games, and many nights I find him with the glow of an e-reader lighting his face, or having pillow fights with the girls and spinning them around on his shoulders at intentionally just the right speed to make my stomach turn (oh, he knows the speed...).
I myself have been working on getting more organized. I have more of the craft room I'm planning on updating soon, and this week, I made over this "Control Corner" - mostly for the kid's school stuff to be more organized.
Check it out!
First I wallfabricked the wall (I just made that word up, but it's gonna be a thing... It means wallpapered with fabric)
***THIS is a WONDERFUL trick, and so super easy. I recommend it to anyone, everyone, and very interior design conscious dogs. One of my favorite interior tricks to date!
Instructions for Wallfabricked wall:
1. CUT FABRIC TO FIT.
2. USING A PAINT ROLLER, ROLL OVER TOP OF FABRIC WITH STORE BOUGHT LIQUID STARCH (LIKE STA-FLO).
3. DO THE SAME IN THE CORNERS WITH A STARCH SOAKED SPONGE AND USE YOUR HANDS TO FLATTEN AND EVEN OUT THE FABRIC.
4. JUST LIKE THE SPOON, THERE IS NO 4. THAT'S IT! JUST THREE STEPS!
(For a more in depth tutorial, click here )
Are you geeking out about this as much as I am? Perhaps the best part is you can pull it down any time you like, and the fabric is still good for other projects after a washing.
Then I simply slowly added things we already had - some that were already there, and some that were away in storage.

|The frame above is a place where the children can display a grade or piece of art they feel they did particularly well on. It is just meant to be a little encouragement for them to try their best.|
|It even opens up to switch out the work easily. (It's from Target)|
Added some hooks and a clock, and, that's pretty much it, folks! Here are some different views
|Excuse the missing light switch plate. I broke it moving it and haven't had a chance to replace it...|
