Eclectic Kids Room Tour: Shared Space

Well hello all of my darling little friends! I miss you all so very much. I can't believe its 2013. It's odd to me that I started this blog just one short year ago, and how much it's grown so quickly. Thanks all for reading!

For 2013, I told myself-- not a resolution, 'cause I don't really set myself up for those kind of things, but I told myself that I would commit to becoming more organized. Oh, and patient. Yes, that's it.

So when I planned to redo my kids bedrooms I thought about clever ways to make their bedroom gender neutral-- but I still wanted my little diva to have her glam and I wanted my Batman to have his "manly" flava in the room. Here's a new room, for a new year for 2 of my 3 precious children! My youngest is still co-sleeping and nursing, but she'll have her space in here soon!

Woot woot!

Here's a close up of my adorable Rugs USA area rug here! I love the colors!!!!

Then I came across this super adorable monogram free printable via For Chic Sake. You can download the template here and totally customize it with your kids initials. Adore? Yes.

I made tassels for my little diva and Batman. I just sold the pink one shown below, but I have plenty more via my Etsy store here. Oh and they're only 8 bucks. Yup. $8.

 I'm thinking about adding a little more blue to my sons tassel on the left and then adding it to my Etsy store next weekend. Fun?! Yes, I'd like to think so.

And.. my DIY bird mobile. I had to handstitch the birds using this pattern via Lavender's Blue Designs here! Oh and to add insult to the injury my husband had to teach me how to handstitch. Ha! He's amazing.

I just giggled. So, that flower vase is actually a reused can of yams. Yes-- candied yams. It's been washed of course, but when my kids saw the vase they picked it up and kept yelling that the flowers smelled so yummy. I informed them the flowers were fake, and the "yummy" smell was in their head. I then realized that it was quite possible they were actually smelling the remnants from the candied yams. Ahh-- good times. 

 So what do you think of the room? I'd like to eventually replace the existing nightstand with a smaller, kid-size nitestand, as the room's proportion are a bit off with that giant mass of furniture in between my kid's bed.

  1. I would love to know which shade of paint you used. It's so pretty. I left you a comment on Apartment therapy as well. Nice job!

  2. Oh hello!! Thanks for stopping by. The paint color is actual left from the previous homeowner and we never had a chance to paint over it. Sorry I couldn't be more of a help. I love the color too!
