a room of one’s own

This week, I’ve been mostly buying vintage lovelies for baby Owl, painting the bathroom, and spending hours on Pinterest trying to get inspiration for finishing off the Boy’s room. I really want to use recycled furniture if possible; on the list is a new large wardrobe, crates for his toys, cubes to mount on the walls for his books and games, and a few more nick nacks and prints. I also love the idea of using unconventional, retro wire baskets, like the one in the last picture (above) and am even thinking of turning an old chest into a play kitchen….

Sorry for the super short post – bed is calling, and the Boy still has a love of early rising, no matter how much tired Mama protests!
