I am trying something new today. I saw this idea on the Kelly's Korner blog. She has a "show us where you live" Friday thing goin' on and this week is kids rooms. As I look at these pictures of my children's rooms through "blog" eyes - the thing that jumps out the most is how much stuff they have! The clutter that I just turn a blind eye to on a daily basis is astonishing! Our neighborhood garage sale cannot come soon enough!
I am going to start with the room that started it all. This is the nursery we decorated while I was pregnant with our first child. We didn't find out if we were having a boy or girl, but it probably wouldn't have changed the theme anyway. We wanted ABC's and primary colors - we wanted that little brain stimulated from the get go! I love the border. We made it out of trim and flashcards purchased at a teacher store.
The room has been lived in by all three of my kids. Hailey is the final inhabitant - that is why there are pink girly touches here and there. The room is our smallest room with a joke of a closet. Wouldn't you know that would be the room that our only GIRL gets to call her own. She may have to barter with her brothers for closet space! With the lack of space, we are thinking that the only bed option that will leave any space at all is a loft sort of bed. Therefore we can't really "do" her room until she is old enough to sleep in a high bed.
The blue ABC wall hanging behind the rocker was sort of the impetus for the room. It was the first thing I bought for the nursery.
This is Spencer's room. We moved him in and decorated when he was almost three and I was pregnant with his little brother. We chose a nautical theme for his room.
The bunk beds were in my mother's childhood home. They are maple and gorgeous! We were at the right place at the right time when my aunt was parting with them.
