This time last year we were about a week from Gibson’s due date and frantically finishing the final touches on the kids rooms before his arrival. Funny enough, a week or so later he was born and I never finished decorating. But nevertheless I figured it’d be fun to share a few of our DIY projects we did to decorate the kids rooms!

When it came to designing Charlee’s space my biggest concern was her being able to keep her independence. At the time all she knew was being an only child and I was so worried about how it would affect her emotionally. I wanted to create a safe space for her, somewhere she could play and read and relax in her element. I also wanted to highlight some of things I always want her to strive for; bravery, adventure, knowing her value as a child of God, dreaming big…etc

Last week we had a little family session to capture the memories built in this sweet room and I just have to share.

DIY Projects

House Bed - We built her house bed following a tutorial from Pinterest, hubby got a little distracted in the process and ended up building his own design with the pieces I cut out from the template. This project was definitely a labor of love, I spent all day Christmas last year in a freezing cold garage cutting, sanding and staining the pieces to make this for her and it was so worth it!

Rain Gutter Book Shelves - This was probably the best idea we had and cost us less than $10.

Triangle Hanging Shelves - Another easy piece that added such a nice touch! We took scrap wood pieces from the bed and had Jeremy’s mom crochet the yarn to hang them.

All bedding items from Target - Comforter, Pillows and Canopy

“I am a Child of God” Canvas from Modern Burlap

Sound Machine and Nightlight - Hatch Baby

Teepee - Amazon
