When we moved my youngest son out of his crib last year and bought him a big boy bed, I decided it was time to ditch the baby room and update his room to reflect his interests and awesome
personality. He requested a room with dinosaurs and baseballs, so with new paint, (yes, thats a red ceiling!) some easy DIY projects, and smart shopping, I was able to create a room that doesn't feel like a typical themed kids room AND didn't break the bank. The result is a fun, quirky space with a stylish mix of vintage and modern that we both love.
My large antique alarm clock collection and other vintage finds were the inspiration for my craft room/office. Needing a place to create and store all of my crafting materials, I used
second-hand furniture that I painted, a pair of IKEA bookcases, DIY electrical conduit drapery rod, hand-made draperies and other cost-saving elements to turn this room into my little slice of crafting heaven without spending a lot!
Unfortunately we don't have a separate space for a playroom so we have changed our formal dinning room into our playroom. It's a much better use of space for our family. The only problem
is that it's the first room you see when you walk in. And I was sick of seeing all those toys. So I am in the process of trying to make the room look a bit better. I painted the room and have been trying to add inexpensive diy stuff back into the room. My favourite part of the room is the egg basket light I found at an antique store and turned into an overhead light. #Love2Repurpose
