My Vintage Home: My Children's Rooms
I thought since my goal is to work on the kids rooms between April and June of this year that perhaps you could all join in me in this exciting process and even if possible help me along? I mean, what are vintage sisters, right?
My two eldest sleep in the same room at the moment. That room was my former craft room so it still has the shabby chic look that I decorated it as back in 2006. The nursery is painted in sage green and it was that color for all three babies nursery themes. The photos below were taken in 2011 prior to my eldest son moving into his sisters room, he was still in the nursery (was a Winnie the Pooh theme and is now a Monkey theme), and the baby was in the bassinet in our bedroom.
The nursery aka future playroom is a really small space as you can see from above. There is a closest there that I cover with a curtain and one window. Making this space fun to play in and functional is going to be a challenge for sure.
The photo below is of a 1950's child's playroom. I would love to put a chalkboard in the room and not paint the wall with black chalk paint because it will just damage the wall in the long run.
1950's playroom. Sweet isn't??! I have NO clue how to decorate the kids sleeping quarters. They all love different things. I need to figure out something generic but nice and defiantly no decals. My lil monkey boy would tear that up in two seconds hehe
So what do you think? This will be one of my new series that I will include on my blog along with "My Vintage Wardrobe", "Weekend Cinema Spotlight", and "Classic Film Actor Spotlight".
If you have any suggestions, tips, or any help at all--you can email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or share them with me on my Facebook page. I have some time to work on this project but I know my baby will need to be in his toddler bed no later than the summer.
Boy, this is going to be fun!!!!
