2 Decorating peeves and solutions


Okay, I know its popular to put your kid's name on the wall but I don't get it. Is it supposed to promote literacy, help forgetful parents, what?
If you are reading this chances are, you don't need my help but I saw one too many stupid nurseries in Pinterest and had to vent.
Words on walls is my #1 peeve in this post and in life.
If your kitchen wall says "Eat here" what on earth does it say in your bathroom?
I am a fan of original art anywhere you have a bare wall but that is not in the budget for everyone so here are two ideas for a kid's room that I prefer.


Map are interesting and in theory you can leave it on the wall until they head off to college. Maybe they will learn something other than their name.


Chalkboard walls aren't just black anymore.
The possibilities on a chalkboard wall are limitless and its just paint.

Peeve #2
Matching sofa and loveseat


Are everyone's eyes still in place? I removed all sharp objects before writing this post so I would not be tempted to gouge my own eyes out.
If you have this situation already a) burn the rug and b) stash that loveseat elsewhere and go chair shopping.

Grab a matching pair if you must but don't forget Craigslist, Ikea, and CB2 for affordable options.


See? Nothing matches.
World keeps spinning...

Mother in law and sister in law are en route...Surprise!
I might be out for the rest of the week. As long as I don't end up twitching in a corner, life's alright.

I could not agree more about putting stupid phrases on the wall. Drives me crazy too.

hahahaha!!!! Sorry I'm 'guilty' of the first offense - have the word PLAY in my sons bedroom ( just like the lettering from RH Child, so I couldn't resist), luckily I placed his name on DECALS that are easily removable when he's older.

But from my own perspective, the reason for the name on the wall just signifies ownership. For a little kid, it means the world to them that the room is officially theirs and everyone can see it! At least, that's how my son loves his name :-)

As for the sofa and love seat, so agree on that, but if you go to furniture stores, discounts are DEEP if you get the set, so a lot of people couldn't resist! I say, get the set, then break it up in different spots in your home. :-)

Oh my, Kerry, I'm with you. And if you have to be so creative as to come up with an alternate spelling for your child's name, can't you think of something more creative for the wall? I love when you get in your snarky mood : )

Raina Cox said...

HA! I'm completely with you on both counts.
