Home Tour: Kid's rooms!

Today at Kelly's Corner, we are showing our kid's rooms!

I've shared pictures of Grace's room before, but here are a few just in case you missed them. I really wanted something that would grow with her. Also, I love the look of murals but I have no artistic ability, so we chose to go with a decal from Etsy. We have had tons of people ask if it was hand painted!


My mom and I made the letters of her name using scrapbook paper and Modge Podge.

 My grandmother made the curtains and dust ruffle for us.

I am so happy with the way it turned out and I know that she won't just grow out of it in a year or two.

Now we're in the process of planning Connor's room. Currently, it is our guest room and it will need a total transformation before his arrival in the next 4 months. We are still in the initial planning phases but I will share a few of the ideas we have! We have decided to go with a puppy theme and my entire inspiration is based on this adorable rug:
The rug is an accessory of a bedding set that costs nearly $200. I will not be buying said bedding set because I am cheap and do not see the need to buy the set when we will not be using the comforter or the bumpers for safety reasons. So I found some fabric at Hobby Lobby that we will be using to make a crib skirt and valences for the windows.

I then found these adorable dog prints from Etsy that I just have to have to hang over his crib!


You can pick from a wide variety of dog breeds. We will of course be getting a Corgi and a Black Lab print, but I still need to decide on the others and the background colors.

Finally, I am on the hunt for a decal with his name to go over the changing table. This is my favorite so far but I'm not totally sold on it:
Obviously we would request boy colors, a different font, and no flower but I think it fits our concept well.

That's what I have planned so far. Of course it could all change tomorrow if I find something I like even more!

  1. I can't wait to see what you do to his room! Grace's room is adorable. I'm doing a racing theme in my sons room and I think in the next 6 months we're going to redo my daughters room also. I'm pretty excited about both.
