4. Magnet Wall DIY: Use a piece of sheet metal, nails, hammer, cardboard and lots of alphabet letters to create a magnetic wall that invites playtime. Little bodies will stay busy for hours! (via Oh Happy Day)
7. Tree Shelving: You’ve probably clicked on your fair share of “how to organize your kids’ stuff” stories. This tree shelf is at the crossroads of cute meets functional, making it the ultimate solution for storing books. (via Rosenberry Rooms)
9. Chevron Backed Bookshelves: A patterned focal point like a chevron-backed bookshelf makes a real statement in your space. All you need to make this happen is some patterned fabric or paper. (via Michaels)
10. Chalkboard Walls: Nearly every parent has experienced that not-so-charming moment involving their child, a marker and white walls — er, once white walls. Those days are long gone thanks to chalkboard paint. (via Land of Nod)
11. Outer Space Themed Bedroom: Kids will go wild for an out-of-this-world space-themed bedroom! A ceiling mural, glow in the dark stars and suspended paper planets make it happen. (via Decorating Theme Bedrooms)

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
