Lucy's hot pink room is now a navy/dark blue color, and "construction" themed for Connor and Jack:
I found the bedding at the Pottery Barn outlet in Atlanta, and from
there, I did what any mom who wanted to find some fun, creative ideas
for completing the room - I hit up Pinterest! :) I found an adorable idea of using a wooden pallet as a headboard. While there were a few wooden pallets along side the road, they were filthy. As usual, I got lucky at Habitat ReStore downtown and found a very clean, very large wooden pallet for $10. A light spray with the hose to remove the dust, a light sanding, a quick cut into two pieces, and voila! wooden headboards. I LOVE how they turned out!
I like the vertical headboard, but it needed something. I took two old decorative wooden pictured that don't match any of our rooms anymore, covered them in white fabric I already had, then played around with the wooden blocks. I was able to make the words, "lift," "dig," "haul," and "boom." After stealing two toy cars from the boys, I glued together a fun construction scene for each boy's headboard.
dump trucks, cranes, and cement mixers, oh my! :)
We had planned to go ahead and move Connor, but after the conclusion that I need to have surgery on my knee, we're going to keep him in his nursery because it's on the same level as our bedroom. It's already going to be challenging enough to keep up with him on crutches, there's no way I'm going to add getting up and down the stairs anymore than I have to :)
