Lacey’s Space {An Update}

Dear Friends,

Hello, my name is Erin and I’m a recovering space tweaker.  In the past, no room has been safe from a sudden spontaneous makeover.  Yet, I say “recovering” because there is one room where I haven’t been tempted to change a single thing and it has been almost a year since completion. Lacey’s room has been untouched for nearly 365 days.


Hold your horses, that might be a first!  Mark this day as monumental.  My one year roomiversary.


I haven’t messed with Lacey’s room because it is my favorite space in the house if you don’t count the screened porch. No tweaking necessary.

I don’t necessarily love the yellow walls but Lacey feels strongly about the color.  It is her happy place.


This is where I mention that I do need to make a teeny tiny change.  The play kitchen is going to be replaced by a desk. We always knew this would happen but it seems like now is the time. During her quiet time, she likes to color and cut and doing all of that in the floor makes a royal mess.

I’m on a desk hunt – any suggestions?  I’m considering everything from Craig’s List to Amazon and I’ll probably research it to death like everything else.

Big and expensive is out.  I want something small and budget-friendly.

I like this KidKraft model and I’ve had good luck with that brand.  Of course I wouldn’t turn down a $25 yard sale or Craig’s List find either…

Reid’s room is still in progress.  I’ve been sidetracked by his crazy food allergies but I’d like to get that in the win column this summer.

Cheers to a finished room that does not tempt me to tweak! Today, Emily A Clark is hosting a Kids’ Spaces link-up and I’m excited to participate. Check out the other fun spaces.


Any thoughts on a desk?


P.S.  Want more info on the bedroom?  Sources & details can be found in part one and part two of last year’s post.

    I think you did a spectacular job on your daughter’s room. What little girl wouldn’t love it? And BTW, I was in love with yellow once even as an adult (made my best friend cringe). Nice work! 🙂

  2. Lacey’s room is a happy place – too cute! Love the good mornin’ pillow. 🙂 Thanks for linking up!
