We've been living here for about a month now and I finally got around to hanging Theron's pictures on his wall and David installed his acrylic bookshelves [that are a big hit in blogland! Thanks to my girl FC, for starting the trend].
We didn't buy a single thing new for Theron's in-between room. I call it that because I don't consider him a baby anymore but he's not necessarily a big boy either. I, of course, can't wait to decorate a new room for him as he grows up but for now his room is a nice combo of his old room + playroom from our first home. We have bigger rooms in this home so it's nice that he has a substantial space to play in his new room.
So, again, here is what we started with:
And here's where we're at today:
We painted Theron's room Incredible White by Sherwin Williams. I told you earlier, I'm addicted to white paint!
Theron's gallery wall [yes, I still dig 'em!] is a mixture of prints found from stores on the internet, Etsy finds, DIY prints I made, online free printables, and greeting cards. If you're interested in a specific print I can point you in the right direction.
The benches were a DIY project made by my super handy father-in-law. I told him what I wanted, after being inspired by the fabulous Jen over at I Heart Organizing's playroom benches, and he made them come to life. While these benches get pinned over and over as an IKEA hack, they are not from IKEA at all! Guess my father-in-law makes a pretty good look-a-like. We also followed Jen's tutorial on the bench cushion.
You can see the acrylic bookshelves in this shot really well. We are going to order two more to put above and below the two we already have. For reference we have the 30" size. They are extremely affordable and pretty. Can't beat that!
This wall sits opposite the gallery & bench wall. Theron is obsessed with that giraffe, or Gidgey as we so lovingly refer to her. He hugs and kisses her everyday. Great buy, for sure.
Theron's dresser was a thrift store find that we painted a peacock blue. It has great storage and we can't see ourselves getting rid of it anytime soon. And quite possibly my favorite baby gift ever, the Theron nametag, was a gift from my best friend Cori. Theron's name is in my handwriting and it is just the sweet thing. If you don't know her by now, Kacia, is the fabulous and kind blogger over at Coconut Robot who makes these! She's incredibly talented and I'm lucky to call her my friend because of Cori. I love how the world works sometimes.
And so that's our little guy's room for now. He's doing amazingly well. Keeping us on our toes everyday-all day.
Thanks for checking out his new space and thanks for taking the time to leave a little comment love yesterday. It's good to be back. :-)
