Note the custom made Thomas the Tank Engine bedding made my husband.
It's hard to see but we had a little dresser with bright blue number drawer pulls...adorable!
We also did a lot of custom artwork actually made by my step son. All of it is way to "young" for him now.
Truthfully, I have NO money to put into our house right now but this weekend we are going to hit up some indoor flea markets and thrift stores to look for storage ideas. I have been compiling picture after picture on my desktop of rooms that inspire me. How did you make the change from baby to "big kid" room without losing the whimsy and fun?
Our other issue is the play room. Right now? It sucks.
No rug or chairs or storage what so ever. It's just a few bins full of stuff and toys all over the floor. It's been made a top priority. It's hard to tell in these pictures but the main wall is curved. It's the shape of a wave and at no point does it flatten out so I could hang pictures. The other wall in the playroom is tin so all the prints and art work I have for the room couldn't go there either. I'm not sure how to make it work, other than hitting up Ikea and doing the generic bookcase thing.
I like a home to feel just like that, a home. I am well aware that there is no way to make everything happen over night. A home is made over time and not by one trip to the store. I'm looking forward to treasure hunting but at the same time I am anxious for the end result.
If any of you see some great playroom storage ideas or older kid/teen bedrooms please feel free to share them with me!
