Room Reveal | An Industrial Loft Toddler Boy Bedroom

Room Reveal | An Industrial Loft Toddler Boy Bedroom

This post has been a long time coming, but here is the my little man’s toddler bedroom reveal, finally! We live in a loft, and two of the three bedrooms – including this one – don’t have exterior windows. My goal was to create as bright and happy a space as possible given the lack of natural light. I was also on a very tight budget, so there are a few DIYs and a lot of Ikea furniture! Sources are… View Post

DIY | Ikea Fjellse Hack: How to Upholster A Bed

I recently upholstered a basic wooden bed frame from Ikea. It’s going to live in my little boy’s new bedroom – his first “big boy bed.” It’s a very budget-friendly and straightforward DIY – perfectly doable if you love the look of upholstered beds but not the price tag.

Mood Board | A Colourful Toddler Bedroom

For the new “big boy” toddler bedroom, I’m embracing bright colours, pattern and kid-friendly design with a focus on lots of the little man’s favorite things (mostly trucks). The budget is tight, so I’m using furniture that we already own, then I’ll bring it all together with fun accessories and a few little DIYs. Kids rooms – nurseries and toddler bedrooms in particular – don’t need to be designed for longevity (aww shucks they just grow up so fast). So… View Post
