A chevron wall painting project for the nursery, a handmade lion coat for baby, an organized home office idea, a letterpress birth announcement, and a casual yet fashionable outfit for mom.

Lowes is sharing some super creative ideas for the home on their site and this chevron nursery wall project is going viral! I love the bright colors they’ve selected — and you can get the look easily with the help of the experts from Lowes. They’ve included included instructions AND a video explaining how to layout and paint these chevron stripes on your walls.

We’ve had a little break with the weather lately, but kiddos still need to cover up. This Child’s Ferocious Felt Lion Coat ($145) from Little Goodall is simply irresistible — and it looks like something out of a fairy tale. Available for babies 12 months and up.

As we all well know, running a home is a full time job — and mama needs her space to keep everything organized and running smoothly. This small home office space featured on is super organized, thanks to squares of fabric-covered corkboard for notes, pegboards for hanging supply cups and bins, and a whiteboard and chalkboard for jotting down reminders.

I’m a big fan of letterpress. I love the work that goes into printing using a letterpress and how the indentations on the paper feel when you brush your fingers against the paper. This Modern Baby Boy Letterpress Baby Announcement was spotted over on Oh So Beautiful Paper, designed by Greg from Work to Date for his newborn son, Oliver.

As warmer weather approaches, I’ve realized that I’m in need of a few new outfits for the new season. Are you in the same boat? Now I know that neon accents are all the rage this Spring, and I’m super excited about that, but I can’t deny that I’ll a traditional girl at heart. I could totally see myself wearing this for a casual outing with the fam!
