Room Decor

I am not an interior decorator so I always look for advice and ideas.  I do have friends who are gifted and talented in this area so I should recruit them to help me think of new ways to make my small place feel larger.  What advice do you have to make your small space seem bigger? 


One thing I like about my kids bedroom is the rug I found at a rummage sale a couple years ago.  I might not have designer rugs but this rug has bright colored circles that divide the room into a play area and works great!


I have no idea if I could pull of a rug in the living room area in this apartment.  I am tired of the carpet which needs a good cleaning anyways and maybe I am just trying to ignore the stains with a rug? I just see many beautiful rugs and it makes me want one to see if it will help make the apartment feel bigger? 


What do you think?  I am trying not to be envious in this matter either just because I see something does not mean I need it but I do want to feel like we have more space... maybe I need to do more organizing?

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
