Bunnyville, a Clean and Serene place to be
Chloe giving Razzy a kiss and telling him it's good to be home.
Well it only took an entire week with two "party" animals living in the foyer, chaos all over the house, and me wanting new accessories. I mean hey, it's a new space I didn't want to load it back up with stuff. That's always how I felt that space was, a dumping ground for stuff I thought I would make and never did. Most of you know that I'm a complete neat freak and I hate clutter. I love carefully chosen pieces that I fall in love with and want to treasure. I'm also in loooooooove with French decorating. I love the simplicity, calmness and well.. everything. There are some great French blogs on my sidebar if you care to take a hop over.
Seeing as the bunnies have always lived upstairs, I never really knew what "party" animals they were. It seems 4:00 am is the magic hour that they chase each other around, shred paper, eat hay and Razzy tries to hump Chloe while she gives him a look of "back off fat boy." Razzy and Chloe have both been fixed, so there is no worry of babies. It's just a dominance thing.
When I "released the buns" on Friday night to their new abode, they ran and ran and ran. They were so happy and enjoyed investigating the new layout. I keep the cabinet doors open on both ends of my sewing table so they can run through on the bottom shelf or take a nap. They think this is totally cool and I get a kick out of watching them.
So onto the photos.
Upon climbing the stairs to Bunnyville, you are greated by
Riesling the Rabbit. Chateau St. Michelle Riesling is my favorite wine
and this bun was named after that. Probably after having a few glasses
one night. hee,hee,hee
I got rid of all the shelving and got cabinets. I couldn't take the
plastic storage bins any longer! I painted the back wall my favorite green,
Fishnet from the Seaside Cottage collection at Lowes. The rest of the walls are painted
Sailcloth from the same collection. I love these soft, muted colors. I even put the bunny's hay in that pretty white basket in a vintage pillowcase. I know, I know, I'm dorky, but it's pretty!!
Here's one more shot.
View looking back to the stairs. The vinyl looks like a stone tile, which I love. Of course not having to clean grout from bunny fur and fabric schnibbles I love even more!
In front of my sewing table and near the stairs is the bunny
playground. Tunnels, their favorite stick hiding hut, their poo poo bucket (Chloe's going to pee as I take this photo) and their dining area.
This is a view of my cabinet area. I love all the creamy accessories. Easy to clean too!
Yep I'm one happy camper in this space. Now I better get to work to pay for it all!
Finally, this last thing was the perfect finishing touch. I bought one of those cool transfers that you just rub on the wall. This truly says what I feel and what I believe. I have been a member of Make Mine Pink for several years and have always dreamed of being a front page boutique owner. Well....I am!!!!!!!!! I did it!!! I'll be revamping my website and carrying my quilting and stitching patterns and supplies. It will take me a few weeks to get it all there, but it's going to be worth the wait. I'll still have a few ready made things for sale, but mostly it will be patterns, etc.
Please hop over and visit Make Mine Pink and check me out. My store is at the bottom left. I'm so excited!!!!
Stop by and visit me on Wednesday. Have a fun week!
This week IGF believing in my dreams, a fabulous place to create and my fuzzy coworkers.
