I know... still haven't fixed my blog. But I've been thinking that part of the reason I feel so overwhelmed and frustrated is because my house is a train wreck all the time. We have a banquet in the kitchen with upholstered seating {i.e., a fabric covered bench} and two slip-covered chairs. I was so pleased with the set right after I made the slipcovers, but now... they are covered in chocolate milk stains and ground in goldfish. It's nasty. Anyway, I was thinking that if I replaced some things in the kitchen, I might feel more motivated to keep it clean. I found a gorgeous farmhouse pedestal table on an online yard sale for a steal and some rustic green chairs in another listing. I also need to replace our disgusting Ikea rug, maybe with something from FLOR. I love FLOR. Back in the day, I worked in marketing for a flooring store and discovered this company before they made it big. I love their modular carpet tiles. I have some in our playroom. They are durable, and I can pick them up and wash them in the sink if Aidan drop an ice-cream cone on one. Anyway, here's hoping all my lovely finds are still available. Fingers crossed....

In the mean time, here are some pics of FLOR.

Ooohhh...I love that FLOR stuff! I might need to look into that for my daughters' room. I have a rug in there made of tiny pieces (got it at Target but don't know how to describe it) but my 2 1/2 yr old decided to pick at it during naptime and now there's a hole in the middle. Uuugghh!

Love your playroom!

Kids! They are into everything. I had these vintage reproduction hooks in the bathroom {hung them with 50 lb drywall anchors} and my boy still managed to pull them out of the wall by swing from the towel. Flor is great--they have some tiles that are $4.99 ea--so cheap!
