the bufflogals’ new room

We’ve been in our new place a few months now, and it’s finally getting into a state where I’d be willing to show you guys what it looks like. I figured I’d start with the cutest room: Etta’s and Claire’s.

Here’s the before:

The walls and ceilings of every single room in the new house were beige. We had all of them painted!

And here’s the after:

If you’ve seen the girls’ room in our old house, there’s not a lot different in terms of actual stuff, but with light purple walls, the whole space feels so much lighter and more fun than the dark blue floral wallpaper in our old rental.

Here you see a prime example of my half-assed gallery wall methods. Some blogs will give you a tutorial for measuring and laying out a mathematically perfect gallery wall. I am not that girl. I just sort of eyeballed it. I think it turned out OK. The Vonnegut quote canvas is up a little high, but it has to be to keep little hands from grabbing at it when changing babies on the changing table.

My husband built the toy shelf, and the changing table was a dresser found by the curb in our neighborhood.

I made this origami lampshade, and it’s one of my favorite things in the room.

  2. I love the lamp! Is it just a ton of origami cranes? Did you make the mobiles as well? This is very exciting… a possible use for all of those cranes i make when I’m bored!

    Beautiful room, very warm and full of love. Well done.
