So far, this is the one room of the house that is DONE. And i actually still want to pick up a comforter for his new bed, but that can wait a bit... like maybe till fall, when it actually starts to get cool again. ; ) I'm pretty pleased with how his room has turned out, though, and D seems to like it, too.
First, the biggest change-- his NEW BED! We figured it was about time to get him a true twin-size "big kid" bed. Donovan LOVES it, and talks constantly about his new bed... which is a relief, since I was a bit worried about how the transition off the floor would go. (I know, we still need to get a bed rail for the side of the mattress, so for now at night we put down a thick blanket and a few pillows along the floor beside him. He's been using the new bed for just over a week and rolled off once... and went right back to sleep after climbing back in!)
The coolest thing about this bed? When D grows a bit older we can flip the entire frame upside-down and it becomes a loft! =)
Pretty much all the furniture is Ikea... the bed, the toy shelf, the table & chairs, the dresser, even the laundry hamper and new rug. What can I say? It's affordable and functional.... and if a piece gets broken, it's not that big a deal ; )
The animal prints are from an etsy shop called Fall Down Tree. I discovered this shop at least a full year ago, if not longer, and have been waiting for the right excuse to buy up a few of their prints. I think the llama is my absolute favorite.
The embroidery above is hanging right by the door to his room, and was made for Donovan by the Brazilian grandmother who lived down the street from us at our last house. I know, how awesome is that?
Above his dresser I also hung a print from the West Willow etsy shop that I could not resist, since this is the song I sing to Donovan each night and at nap time before he goes to sleep.
For now I've moved his diaper supplies into the hall bathroom, as a hopeful preparatory step to potty training later this summer. Can I tell you how nice it is to go from sharing a single bathroom for the whole house to now having 2.5 bathrooms?? Zach and I get a huge master bath, and we still have a hall bathroom for D that's big enough to stash a changing table and diaper pail into. SO. NICE.
The rest of our home is fairly well set up furniture-wise, but I'm trying to figure out what to do with the walls. Eventually I'll figure that out, and can then post a photo tour of everything else.
