Gooood morning! What's your wake up routine? My children literally pry my eyes open. It's Canadian Bloggers Home Tour day 3, and there are four new homes linked up on today! Here's a look at my sweet Little A's room in #ourdiyhouse . She's one of the eye pry-ers. πŸ™€ #cbhometour #HomeDecor #interiordesign #nursery

kalynnelise : What color is that paint? We attempted to have a similar color.. But once on the wall it looks more like mint. 😩 I'm so disappointed!
trev_clairebell : This is amazing, I love the teepee x x
janinnned : Is that corkboard or burlap in the ikea frame? Either way genius... I bought the black one because I couldn't think of anything to put in the white one & the black has a mirror! I'm going to spray paint it turquoise anyways πŸ™ŠπŸ™ŠπŸ™Š
shawnadovetail : Yes, I'd love to know the paint colour too!
thediymommy : @kalynnelise @shawnadovetail It's Mystic Sea by @valsparpaint . I think it's just the right shade of aqua for a kid's room! We have it in A's room and our kid's bath.
thediymommy : @janinnned I covered the actual glass in burlap with a glue gun. Worked like a charm! I love the black mirror one too. Would look awesome in turquoise!
thediymommy : @trev_clairebell Thanks,_Claire! The teepee is my favourite part. :)
shawnadovetail : Thanks Christina

So begins the infatuation with yanking on mom's hair. And earrings.
thediymommy : @virtualme2011 Thanks! Yes, I'm very tempted to cut mine again.
thediymommy : @jgolom It's serious work, this hair pulling.
thediymommy : @dwellinginhappiness LOL! Mine does that too when she nurses!
thediymommy : @bestbdays Sure is. She's on a mission!
thediymommy : @sarahdawnw Might be a very smart thing to do!
hollie37 : Oh shame... Don't I know that! #jmac also loves to claw up my face. What moms put up with out of love. :) #lifewithbaby
hollie37 : PS - She has the best look ever on her face! A girl on a mission!
thediymommy : @hollie37 I know, hey? We endure so much abuse. ;)

melindakepper : Hmm interesting . As long as it's not the icky milk powder tasting lattes that'll be ok .
thediymommy : @melindakepper I make my own lattes with fresh milk and a whisky thing, and I'm still patiently waiting on the new 2.0 details... Apparently we'll be able to brew more coffee at a time.
flourishingpalms : @thediymommy πŸ˜‚ whisky I read as whiskey. Thought you were really enjoying your coffee!
thediymommy : @flourishingpalms hahaha! Some days it's tempting! πŸ˜‰
jmwilson725 : Ooohh, that's exciting! Love my Keurig and love your hashtag #succulentphotobomb! πŸ˜‚

204park : Yay @thediymommy!!! Looks great!
thediymommy : @204park Thanks! I'm not normally a fan of square mosaic tile, but hubby wanted some to make the shower floor installation easier. I'm happier than I thought with this time mix!
