For someone who doesn't celebrate Valentine's Day, why was it so much fun to change over my Christmas decor? Oh yeah, because I have a daughter and I'm living out all of my girly-est decor dreams through her.... AND I got a new, kick-a$$ candelabra for Christmas and I had to design a space around such gorgeous-ness and share it with you!
BELOW: Before I painted the drawer-shelves and covered the speaker in peel and stick wallpaper. This is how the madness begins....
I switched out the rugs from Tilly's bedroom and the living room. Definitely the right choice. The grey rug was meant to be in the living room and the pink one meant for Tilly's room. I just hope a pit doesn't puke on this gorgeous rug! Eeek!
There are pros and cons to living with a hoarder, errr, "collector". In this case, a pro, the fence surrounding the wood stove. I said, "We need something like a fence around this whole area to keep Tilly out." Fence delivered. No problem. Baby safety has never looked so chic!

OMG! Can you even stand how friggin cute this is?! I chose a, mostly, pink and white color scheme for this space. It's a kid's space, but it's also in the corner of our living room. So, I wanted to be able to tuck away the majority of toys easily. Considering she has a whole other separate playroom, I figure I can be a clean and tidy freak about this area.
The dogs decided the footstool turned toy box was really a window seat for them ;)
I blew this adorable glass tea light at a glass blowing lesson with my aunt! And the vase is a Pinterest/ dollar store hack. I filled a vase (maybe it's a tall cup, because I found it in the dish aisle of the dollar store, idk) with sweat tarts and added faux flowers. The cuteness is rotting my teeth ;)
TOY CORNER DETAILS:
My theme with the rest of the room was red and black with leopard accent. Before I even started decorating, I rounded up all the heart shaped and red colored accessories I could find. With my 3 tiered kitchen tray, I found a small heart shaped basket and a heart shaped cookie cutter! You see the back of a red dollar store teddy bear who happens to be missing his eyes thanks to a pit-bull I know ;) My counter runner is really two overlapping scarves; one leopard, one red fleece. I actually have an ANCIENT tutorial for that GUMBALL MACHINE!
My whole idea was to reuse as MUCH as possible from my Christmas decor. I used the round branch wreath on my barn fence at Christmas time. I knew I wanted to use it as the 'O' of 'XO' for my Valentine's day decor.
I bought the lips pillow off eBay for $8. It's a cute idea, for sure! Not good quality though :( The lips aren't fully screen printed on as you can see.
Thanks for visiting and checking out my decor! I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's day and wonderful February in general (since I supposedly don't celebrate Valentine's day) <3 ;)
You'll love these too!
