The evolution of our kids' rooms

by - July 15, 2014

While we're discussing my fickle career thoughts...why don't we go over things I do like to do.  Maybe that will give me some guidance.  I'm also linking up with Andrea today @ Momfessionals for her Come on In series.

I LOVE decorating my kids' rooms.  Here's a little look at what Willis and Lucia had in both the two previous houses we've owned.

Willis (birth-6 months).  The room that I created before I was a mom.  le sigh.  I had ample time, a very limited budget and very swollen feet.  I was going for cute and colourful.   Each square would get a picture of him on it for each month-aversary.  It was sad taking this room down when we moved out of Warman into Saskatoon.

Willis- your crib was in our room for the first month or so.  I may even be napping in the background there.  I think this was your baby shower day.
When we moved into our Baillie Cove house, Willis' room was quite generic,

and it took me a year to come up with a plan and then execute it.  So, for his 3rd birthday, he came home to a brand new outdoor themed bedroom, complete with a family tree.  I think he loved it, maybe the video may confirm that....

Then we decided to build a house.  Now Willis' current room is back to being kinda basic.  It definitely is ball themed, but will be getting a major face lift over the course of this year as I make a baseball bat headboard, a custom scoreboard and get some of my vintage 1992-1993 Blue Jay's World Series stuff framed.  Oh, and the autographed Roberto Alomar hat.  Swoooooon.  I may move into his room.  It's all the stuff I had in mine when I was 14.  I've blogged about the current kids' rooms here

Now Lucia has only had 2 bedrooms.  The one she had from birth- 2 years on Baillie Cove, which was underwater themed:

and then her current one, which I blogged about here.  Her room will also get some major updating as I get a handle on the basement.  I'm just now feeling the upstairs is nearing perfection, all that I am wanting is a bigass area rug and a coffee table and then I'll move on downstairs.

So that's the evolution of my kids' rooms which certainly is always fun for me.  I love drawing up ideas and gathering pieces.  Good times.  Thanks for stopping by!
