The S is not upside down… It looks like it is..but in real life it is not.
I have used that in their rooms since they were little and love love it. First used it as their dessert table backdrop at their Vintage Circus birthday party. The bedding is from IKEA..and the book shelves are ikea picture ledges. Micah loves getting the books off their and bringing them to me when I lay on the bottom bunk.
I think he needs the same set up in his new room ;)
The baskets on their dresser hold their princess dolls and hair accessories.
You know.. the necessities. (baskets from home goods)
(strawberry and puppy from ikea. worn in and loved ;)
I got these old wooden frames about 5 years ago at a garage sale.
I think I payed around 5 bucks for 8 of them! some bigger some smaller.
I FINALLY put them to use all these years. Spray painted them gold…
Measured and cut out foam board as the back (they didn’t have a back originally)
Then I used roll out cork board and used spray adhesive to attach it.
I love hanging the girls’ artwork and random doodles up to see.
I also found a mirror at a garage sale that needed a little tlc..
I cleaned it up as much as I could and spray painted it gold to match.
It’s the perfect height and size for them use. They call it their princess mirror.
Thanks for stopping by! I guarantee that in the time it took me to write this post,
their room’s floor got covered with toys. It’s their skill- speed mess makers. haha.
I recently teamed up with IKEA here in pittsburgh for a beautiful and functional basement makeover!
We wanted to have a kid friendly adult space… We needed to have an office area, an entertainment area and a defined kid area! (with a limited amount of toys!) I filmed a video to give you the full tour. ALSO!! There’s another IKEA Makeover to check out at the bottom of my post! My Friend Abby created the cutest big boy room!
I’ll link all of the products that are from IKEA!
If you have any questions, comment below!
I knew that I HAD to have a chalkboard wall in our basement!
The girls absolutely love it. We got the paint at Lowes. It went on really easy.
Micah loves pulling up, standing and walking across this area.
The girls are all about playing restaurant or bakery right now…
and micah loves to put toys in and out of the storage bins. He is a sorter. ;)
I needed some desk space..but didn’t want the tables to be sticking out into the room.
I was so happy when we found these desks at IKEA
because they are very shallow and sleek!
We got the high gloss black and I think the light reflecting off of them helps brighten the space and not make it so flat. We hung two magnetic boards so we could post calendars, to-dos, artwork and homework! The LACK shelf above holds storage, books and my pens/sharpies/scissors high away from little trouble makers. ;)
The Shelf was actually really simple to mount on the wall! It was the one piece I was kinda worried about but it went up like a breeze and feels sturdy!
I loved these chairs… they felt modern, simple and not bulky!
I put a white besta piece next to my desk to hide my printer and give me more storage!
(the owls are from marshalls or tj maxx..lamp from target.)
LOVE this space…Date nights are hard to come by with three kids, so ben and I really wanted to have a comfy space where we can do movie nights… or game nights with friends!
The rug helped define the space. We chose the KIVIK Loveseat and sofa. LOVEE them. They were the easiest IKEA furniture to put together out of the whole space! I love how sturdy and comfy they are… the fabric pattern is great with kid spillage… and pretty at the same time!
The Gallery wall was SO CHEAP to do. The 6 frame project cost $40.
I snapped some photos of the kids in our backyard, uploaded the images to staples.com for their architect prints(10 bucks!!)… picked them up at the store a few hours later! Framed them in these IKEA frames that are on sale right now for 4.99….crazy right?? Do this project! I’m so happy with how it turned out… and the girls loved seeing their faces “I have a big faceee!!” SAXNAS Frames.KIVIK Loveseat.KIVIK Sofa.BESTA Burs TV Unit.
I picked out these IKEA coffee tables because I loved how they were on wheels.
We can move them in front of the tv to work as a baby gate and keep micah
from high fiving our tv…and we can move them around to use for putting food and
drinks on.. or if we are playing games on a game night!
