{Guest Post} Cassie at Primitive & Proper

Hello all! I hope you had a very Merry and Joyous Christmas weekend! We were blessed to spend it with all our family, but isn’t there also something so sweet about the day after Christmas? The kids are content to play with all their new toys, there is no where to be and nothing to cook…we spent all day yesterday in our jammies! And while I’ve managed to clean up the piles of wrapping paper, I am still hunting down more batteries. I’m sure once I get the final toy ready to go, the first one will be ready for a new set. But seeing their faces as they ripped open the paper to find what they’d been hoping for, makes everything worth it! (Even if I’m later putting duct tape over the speaker of that same toy!)

I’m thrilled to have another week home with my kids, so we’ll continue the Best of the Best series. I hope you’re enjoying it as much as I am! I do have a few posts of my own planned this week, and I’m really excited about sharing more of my favorite bloggers and their favorite projects with you.

Today we kick things off with the Fabulous Cassie from Primitive & Proper. Besides having a kickin’ name, she also transforms furniture like no one I’ve seen. Somehow she manages to turn an old-piece into a master-piece several times a week, while raising two kids…oh, and teaching a spinning class before the sun comes up! Check her out!


Hey there, Hi Sugarplum! fans!  I am another Cassie, from…

I am so excited that Cassie has asked me to be here today.  Since I know I like to be able to put a face to a name, I’ll share a picture of myself first.  Here I am with my two favorite superheroes!

I thought today I would share my daughter Emmy’s room with you, since I am a huge fan of Cassie’s kids rooms. Her’s are fabulous and bright, but I tend to keep my home pretty soft and neutral (I need relaxing colors!).  My bedroom is my favorite room and is a prime example of the cool colors I prefer.

But in my children’s rooms, I like to have fun with color, especially since that is what they prefer! Emmy’s room is painted a pale blush pink, and has touches of pink, pink, and a little blue. She loves pink! Here are some pictures form her room… I have painted all of the pieces in her room over the course of the past 2 years, and love how they all work together.

Its a fairly small room, so that’s about it!

Emmy will be turning 4 in January and loves the combination of pink, orange, and purple. So for her birthday, we very well may be doing it over in those colors and making it a little bolder to suit her spunky little personality. What do you think? I would love to hear your ideas!!! Come visit me and let me know your thoughts! I would love to hear from you.

Cassie, thank you so much for having me here today, and hope you are enjoying some lovely family time!

Thank you, Cassie! I’m crazy about those striped drapes and blue dresser! And don’t think I’ve forgotten about the makeover of my Babygirl’s room…projects will resume soon. But tomorrow we welcome the talented Danielle, from Danielle Oakey Interiorsand her fab project!

    Adorable Cassie – thanks for sharing! I love the blue dresser, is that a Tiffany blue or brighter? And the tulle balls (?) above the bed is such a cute touch!
