This room used to be my craft room. It was disorganized and upstairs, so not very practical either. Once Lucas was here, we decided it would be better to convert this upstairs room into his room. We cleaned it out (now all my fabric is in bags in the attic!?) and painted it pale yellow. It is the sunniest room of the house. He was so happy when we gave him his own baby space where he could crawl around and not have us deterring him (like we have to do downstairs).
This is the left side. The cubby shelving serve as his dresser for now. The mobile was his birthday present last week. It’s so awesome and fun to watch. I’ve got a thing for mobiles.
No seriously. I love mobiles. I have to refrain myself from hanging things from the ceiling in every room of our home. This mobile even has glow in the dark parts! WHAAAAT? Yeah, it does.
So awesome. Mmmkay. Moving along.
Here he’s got his little star night light (from Ikea) and our what-would-we-do-without-you noise machine/sound spa thing there. The little framed prints are free from Mr. Printable. Cute, no?
Now for the right side of the room. The large mirror used to be over a vanity in my grandparent’s house. We saved it knowing that we’d use it some day. It’s really large and heavy. It is also perfect for playing, kissing yourself in, and seeing around the whole room. That shelving unit holds lots of stuff. The top is full of all the children’s toys that used to be in our old playroom.
The lower shelves are for Lucas. They are great because they are so low and accessible to him. Yeah sure he likes to clear everything off of them with wild sweeping arms and then crawl through it like a tunnel, but I guess I’d do that too if I was his size.
Lucas loves this old kindergarten classroom dollhouse. The lid flips open and closed and the windows are the perfect size for reaching through and grabbing toys. Open, close, open, close, back and forth, back and forth. Go crazy baby!
His scarf/silks rack that I previously wrote about is in the corner there .
Lucas has a queen-sized bed… on the floor. I know. I know. I was very hesitant about this. I didn’t want it to look all sloppy and flop house like, but it’s not so bad in appearance and all the children love it. It’s the best bounce spot. Lucas loves sitting on it and playing and looking out his window. I’m working on a few more star pillows for his bed too. One looks a little lonely.
O.k. there ya have it. I hope you enjoyed the very formal baby room tour. Please return your headsets at the courtesy desk before you leave.
*****Oh and just for fun- this is what the room looked like when we bought the house…
and while renovating…
