I realized as I was making the “big switch” that I had never had an official blog on each of my children’s rooms. I simply put them all in a slideshow in my old format. I have also received quite a few emails regarding bedding questions, furniture, rugs… you name it. I’ll do my best to recall each item, but if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me! I feel as though I’m constantly doing kids rooms-I’m getting ready to do Emerson’s big girl room as I write this. Oh the crazy life of a design crazed mom with stair step children. In the meantime, this was basically for archiving purposes, but here we go!
*Note: Malone was our third child, and a surprise all the way. We had no clue what we were having until that final push. So the challenge was to create a gender neutral space for our sweet new baby. Here’s what we created:
Rug: Ikea • Hutch: flea market find redo • knobs: anthropologie + dlawless • pouf rocker: ebay • floor lamp: ikea • shade: ballard designs • matted frames: Ikea • dresser: flea market redo • baskets: ikea • mirror: hobby lobby discount repainted • side table: antique from Jamin’s family • “Malone” letters on hutch: hobby lobby 1/2 sale repainted. Bedding: via my fabulous MIL designed by me via spoonflower • floor pouf: I totally sewed it myself! (via amy butler pattern) woot.
wall frames made by us
table lamps: via linwood avenue (etsy)
I just love this corner of the room!
Found this globe at the local flea market. (if you can’t tell, flea markets, hobby lobby, and other huge bargains are my faves…)
I sewed the rabbits you see here for each of the children one easter…
“Malone” is my maiden name. Spelled here with vintage letterpress alphabet words via Etsy.
The peter rabbit plate was originally in Aiden’s nursery, as his nursery was (SUBTLE) peter rabbit themed. (This was about five years before PBkids jumped all over that one so I gave myself a little pat on the back there and consider myself trendy or somethin’….RIIIGGGHHHHTTTT)
Piggy bank (peter rabbit) was mine as a child. As are the vintage story books. I refinished this nightmare of a hutch and backed it in fabric designed via spoonflower, to tie it in with the bedding.
I lined the icky drawers with some good old fashioned craft paper. Hurray for scrapbookers everywhere.
Spoonflower is the greatest invention ever. So are MIL’s who graciously agree to sew your children’s bedding for you.
And friends with monogramming machines, who after you make the pillow, are awesome and monogram them for you. (ABBIE)
I scored this awesome find (the M) on etsy.
Mobile made by me and available through special order (contact me)
Chandy is on loan to me via my awesome SIL. I won’t be using it when he gets big enough, as my dad kind of makes fun of me for putting it in there. I believe in doing up the baby while they’re still babies. Vehemently.
Thanks for stopping by!
