My children were especially pleased to have their room finally decorated recently (after living here for over a year)! With a 5-year-old girl, a 2.5-year-old boy, and a new baby on the way, we kept the decor gender-neutral.
They love sharing a room together (and the baby will be with Mama & Daddy for awhile anyway), so you won’t see a baby bed in the photos. (I imagine we will be consolidating the oldest ones into bunk beds in the next year or so, to make room for Baby #3 in the children’s room eventually.)
I reused the bunting flags from a few years ago, and we used Mythic Paint for the red and aqua walls. On the lower half of the red wall, we painted chalkboard paint for some special amusement! Inspired by this drawer pull idea, I used a polka-dot tea-cup wall hanging as a holder for the chalk.
For the wooden wall art, I reused old pallets and barn wood. I used Making Memories letter stamps (from a thrift store) for the lettering to write some of my favorite quotes.
Above the clip boards for their art projects (reused from a few years ago), I put the Pablo Picasso quote, “Every child is an artist…” (inspired by this hall art). The large wall space contains a Mary Oliver quote (a poet I’ve really enjoyed), and above our little boy’s bed, the sweet Marc Brown quote, “Sometimes being a brother is better than being a superhero” (inspired by this room).
In a couple of the corners, we hung some nostalgic vintage artwork/framed cross-stitch pictures (mostly from when I was a little girl). The curtains are a simple sturdy, white canvas-type fabric that have accompanied our family on our many moves over the past 10 years.
Sweet Dreams, dear ones!
