see tons of pics of lil' archer's room after the jump break!
come on in!
here are some "before" pictures of lil' archer's room. it was painted a quasi-army green-slash-sage color.
...and here is the "after" picture i posted a few days ago
showing the chalkboard wall:
the wall is not nearly so immaculate anymore.
lil' archer loves drawing on it...
and erasing! who would have known?
we painted the walls with behr frost...
...and the ceiling with behr frost wind ((top chip)).
there are a couple of dressers in his room, which i use for toy storage.
i put his car and truck decals randomly throughout the room,
most traveling along the baseboard.
there are planes flying by the light switch:
...and fish had the idea to put a plane on one of
the ceiling fan blades -- lil' archer loves it!
((you can't tell the ceiling is blue at all in this picture.))
there's a car and truck traveling along windowpane way:
i love the ivy growing on his other window...
here's the bookshelf just under the ivied window.
it's part of a stackable unit, but i separated them
and they are perfect toddler height!
we put a rug by his crib for a soft area to play.
this is an old wicker chair i got from my grandmother ages ago. it's the most comfortable chair EVER -- and yes, definitely needs to be repainted sometime soon. i put it in lil' archer's room so we had somewhere to sit and read before his afternoon nap.
...but HE loves the chair too!
...so i think it may have a permanent spot in his room.
lil' archer's crib...with a steady rotation of handmade blankets from family friends hanging on it. i particularly love this one, which we received at his baby shower.
there are still several things we want to do -- like make a FORT BED and string up some fun felt ball garlands from the ceiling...
...but i think we've got a pretty great start.
i LOVE lil' archer's room!
(( and i think he does too! ))
