Hi friends! So much has changed in the daily routine over here at A Lo and Behold Life. If you follow me on Instagram you know that we welcomed our sweet baby boy on September 10th! Juggling a newborn, 6 year old twins, the blog and a growing small business has been an interesting (let's call it) challenge. It's been business as usual over at - my customers don't care about 3 AM feedings. They want to get that growing collection of Matchbox and Hot Wheels off the floor and stored away!! And I don't blame them!!  Trust me, this wall garage is life changing! L I F E  C H A N G I N G ! !

DIY Yarn Wrapped Bunny Tail Grass

There is something about the first week of September that gets me giddy.  Maybe it's the smell of new school pencils and erasers or the fact that we've had some abnormally crisp cool mornings this week in Pasadena but I am all sorts of excited for the Fall season. It's too early for Halloween decorations but I'm dying to start decorating the house for the upcoming holidays. If you follow me on Instagram...

IKEA Expedit Hack

I can't resist a good IKEA hack. With a few simple upgrades you can instantly elevate an affordable piece of basic furniture and turn it into a customized and unique piece of furniture.  The original IKEA Kallax shelf has a very simple design. For this project we gave the $50 budget friendly bookshelf a modern makeover and transformed it into a chic storage unit for the twins bedroom. And turned this...

Big Boy Bedroom Makeover: The Big Reveal

Welcome to the twins' Coastal Blues Big Boy Bedroom!  Last week I shared 3 design options and while I loved all three the bright and breezy vibe of the Coastal Blues was the way to go for my guys. The crisp whites and blues with pops of orange and turquoise give a playful personality to the room. Perfect for my soon to be Kindergarteners!

Big Boy Twin Bedroom Ideas

Ummm hello?? Talk about taking a serious vaca from the blogging world. I have lots of reasons (ahem, excuses) for my absence but do you need me to go into every reason why? Probs not. We all know that life happens and priorities shift at a rapid rate throughout the years. Bottom line... I'm ready to get back into A Lo and Behold Life. I'm motivated, inspired and dying to share with you.Yay for me. Yay for you!

I can tell you with 100% certainty that my recent rise in motivation is due to the fact that I'm in a serious nesting frenzy.  That's right, I'm preggers with baby #3.  And I'm due in just 3 short weeks! We've been working frantically on getting the twins' new room ready so that the babes can move into the twin's old room.  Today I'm sharing a few mood boards for Big Boy Twin Bedroom Ideas that I pulled together - each with a slightly different vibe: one rustic, one modern and one coastal.

It's no secret that I'm obsessed with navy blue. It's the dominant color in all 3 design options for the Big Boy Twin Bedroom.
