Check out these beautiful monograms we are starting to offer, they are absolutely stunning and add the utmost sophistication to any room they adorn! The tall letter is 25" and is the last name part of the monogram. The other 2 letters are 8" and would be the first and middle names. I can't get enough of these, I'm hooked on the monogram look! I'm going to have to make my daughter some even though I just redid her letters! The letters are also perfect for use as wedding decor. They are the highest quality monogram letters available online at the best possible price! The monograms are available now on my etsy shop( and will be added to the website ( in the next week or so!

Dr. Seuss Kids Room Idea #4

Why have a plain old ceiling fan when you can have a Cat in the Hat striped fan instead! This idea is super easy and you can use the fan you already have! All you need to do is detach the fan blades be sure to clean them and remove any dust or lint, paint them white and let them dry. (I use spray paint, be sure to purchase a good quality brand from your hardware store) Next tape off the sections you want to be red with blue painters tape and paint those sections red to get the stripes. Lastly use a small paint brush and paint a thin black line between stripes to make your work more clean and professional looking! That easy after they dry re-install!

Dr. Seuss Kid's Room Idea #3

Fill your room with the classic faces of Dr. Seuss! It's pretty easy with a little patience and elbow grease!
  1. Decide what image/s you'd like for your room! Prepare a color and black and white copy
  2. .Using the black and white copy, make a transparency of the image. Most office supply stores have transparency sheets available for purchase.You can use a copier or scanner to make the transparency, or have a local office supply store or copy center assist you. 
  3.  Borrow, rent or purchase a projector. You may be able to borrow an overhead projector from your employer or a local school. Most office supply stores also have projectors available for rent.
  4. Turn the projector on and project the design onto the area you plan to paint. 
  5.  Put your transparency image on the projector and adjust the projector until the image is the desired size. Make sure the projector is squarely situated in front of the wall. If it is angled, it will distort the image. 
  6.  Trace the projected image on the wall with a soft pencil. In case you need to move the projector before you are finished, mark the position of the projector with masking tape.  
  7.  Using the color copy of the image, purchase the paint you need for your mural. Use acrylic paints, although interior latex paints are a feasible option for large areas of color. 
  8.  Paint the large areas of your mural first, using a wide, flat paintbrush. Add details and outline images with a round paintbrush.
  9.  After the paint is completely dry, erase all pencil marks.

Dr. Seuss Kid's Room Idea #2

More Seuss Kids Room Ideas! Here is #2! Decorate those walls! This is a pretty simple DIY if you are artsy and can stand some work, if not you can always look up a local artist, or place an ad for an artist to come paint a mural on your walls for you. You can go simple with red and white stripes. Adding a black outline along the red stripes to resemble Cat in the Hat's stripes makes your design that much more fabulous, don't worry the black line doesn't need to be straight in fact if it's crooked all the better!
Keep an eye out for post #3 I will give you directions on how to do your own wall murals in Seuss characters!

Decorating a Dr. Seuss Themed Room Idea #1

 Dr. Seuss brings out the kid in all of us. What better way to bring your child's room to life then to decorate it in a Seussical theme! Here are some ideas to help inspire your Seuss rooms! I will be posting new ideas through out the next few weeks so check back often to see more unique designs!
Idea #1. Garage sales are a great place to find old furniture to bring back to life! This idea is so easy, find a dresser that is still in stable shape to refinish. Paint white, purchase some new knobs, get some vinyl stickers in the one fish two fish red fish blue fish and your done (I found mine at Target)! That easy, and if you'd purchased that at a boutique it would be hundreds!
