Paint Chips and Bedroom Plans

I've been away for the last four days which has meant no computer while I was visiting my sister and her family.  Now that I am back I can see that I have lots of reading to catch up on - my blog reader is showing all the wonderful things everyone has been up to!!  

So even though I took a break from the computer, it didn't take long for me to break out the pen, paper and Benjamin Moore paint chips while I was away to start planning my three year old's bedroom.  His older brother's train themed bedroom is almost finished, the baby's nursery is done and now my little guy wants a "big boy room" for himself (and I am more than happy to oblige).  

We will be moving him to a Queen sized bed, which seems SO big but his room has to double as a guest room since we have three children now and four bedrooms total.

His only requirements for the room are that the walls be brown and there be a BIG star on the wall which has me thinking of Pottery Barns' star quilts (but we'll have to see if the budget will accommodate that).  

Of course I will also be incorporating my favorite drop cloths as curtains and maybe as a few pillows (is there anything we can't make from a drop cloth??)

I hope to have some pictures up of my trip in the next couple of days ... hope you all are enjoying your week!

  1. Is that your handwriting?! Wow! I wish ! had that kind of penmanship! Can't wait to see what you do. I am ignoring the fact that my 2 1/2 y.o. needs a big boy room. I wonder if he'll get teased if he's still in a crib when he goes to kindergarten?

  2. I love these (new to me) drop cloth sewing ideas. Do you just purchase them at hardware stores? I'm getting excited about trying the pillows! Thanks for the inspiration.


Thanks for leaving a comment - I love reading them!
