A Gallery Display in Thomas’s Room

A year ago, I was scrambling to get Thomas and Nell’s rooms “finished” after moving in before Peter’s arrival. We worked with what we had, not wanting to spend a ton with a new baby on the way. So, a year has gone by, and there are a few things that just weren’t working in the kids rooms. So, I’m taking it one room at a time, getting things in working order, adding finishing touches and just giving the rooms a little new life for Spring. Thomas’s room is the first up. I’m excited to share pictures with you soon of his space soon, but we rearranged his furniture last week, I ordered him new sheets for his bed, am on the hunt for a solution for his windows, and am now focusing on getting something up on the walls.


This was what Tom’s room looked like a week ago (minus the safety rail) – I had been wanting to move his bed out from the wall for awhile, and as much as it pains me to admit it, he’s suddenly a little boy and not so much a toddler. He was ready to sleep without a wall for safety. So, with the furniture rearranging, we have a big empty wall to decorate now. So I’m planning and scheming.

Thomas loves maps, so his US states map will be remain and be a part of the new setup, along with numbers and a few of my favorite snapshots of T. But, as I was perusing all of the adorable and fresh feeling kids birthday invitations on Minted for Peter’s big 1st birthday party — just family, but with our families, that’s big! — I discovered their art marketplace and was immediately smitten.

I love Minted for holiday cards and the aforementioned kids birthday invitations, but I didn’t know about their Art Marketplace until recently and I’m loving it. I’ve picked a few favorites out for T’s mini-room makeover:

And this pink penguin print will be making it’s way to Nell’s room very shortly…her’s is next up on my list of rooms to add a finishing touch to:

I’m excited for how it will all come together and excited to share it when it’s done. I’m on a roll, so hopefully soon!
