We bought a 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath 2-story home with a large bonus room above the 2-car garage (aka the kids toy room/guest room)!
It's perfect for us, for now! It's a large corner lot, we bought a wooden privacy fence and the yard is HUGE!
The one thing that needed work though was the two bedrooms upstairs. They would have been great if we had 2 girls. One was pink with a bright rainbow on one wall, and a few fairy princesses painted on the other and the other room, which ended up being my 4 yo's room was purple with a large apple tree painted on one wall, with a flying elephant, a mother and daughter and on the other wall, about 5 painted cats all lined up in a row! Don't get me wrong, the momma that lived here before me was a great artist, but it was just WAY too girly for my two boys!
So we painted.
I've searched high and low for the pictures of the room before we painted, but I just can't find them! So I'm going to post the after pictures of my 4 yo's room!
Notice that his room is not filled with toys and books and lots of stuff. I like to keep their rooms clean, and minimal, until he is done with the napping stage. He still naps for me every day (except while in pre-school) for about 1-2 hours each day!
The lack of toys and books leaves him peaceful and not distracted by all the 'stuff' that kids have in their rooms today. This way, when he goes up to his room for 'quiet time' he is more likely to fall asleep. Which makes for a much more joyful boy in the late afternoons! This is just how it works for us!
I was thrilled when given the opportunity to review a product from My Wonderful Walls. They offer fabric wall sticker kits, full-room stencil kits, and color-adjustable canvas art for decorating kid rooms and baby nurseries. To include adorable nursery murals, wall decals, and kids wall murals!
With their vast selection, you are sure to find just what you are looking for.
For my review, I really wanted something for the boys, who will more than likely be moved into one bedroom once the new little one comes! I was really tempted to do a nursery design, but seeing that I don't know the gender of my baby (and won't until s/he is born) I decided it was a good choice to treat the boys! I was almost set on the wall sticker kits, but then I knew in my heart of hearts that we will not be living in this home long term and decided it was best to go with something that would be easy to just take off the wall and take with us to our new home (when the time comes)!
This is why I chose My Wonderful Walls canvas wall art! I was actually browsing their selection when my 4 yo caught a glimpse of the Underwater Ocean Kids Murals and he was sold! I decided that since they were going in his room, I'd let him choose! This is a great way to help kids feel a part of the decision making within the home, especially when it affects them directly! This is what he picked:
The Seahorse and angelfish print:
And the sea turtles print:
So, yesterday the canvas' arrived! This is what we received:
