While my sister is in town she also helped me restyle Ben's room. He moved out of his crib and into a toddler bed about a year ago. At that time, I made his room look a bit older and less baby-ish. Hung a few things. But then it all went to he** when we closed off his extra door this past winter/spring.
|Ben's baby room, it was sooo sweet|
So my sister was kind enough to help me pull it all together. Best of all, I only spent about $5 on the 3M strips to hang everything. (I also spent about $30 last year on fabric for his pillows and comforter cover. His bed frame was about $75).
|We purchased the long subway art while visiting NYC last spring and the picture frames are from Steve's parents home.|
|The train was a birthday present from Ben's friend, Addie|
|Yup, I collected lunch boxes in my former life :) The vintage books belonged to Steve|
|More finds from the family hoard. I made the map letter "B"...map modge-podged onto a wooden B|
|I found the farm at an estate sale-I had the same one as a kid. Yup, still makes the pathetic "moo" when you open and close the doors|
|Steve's pup-luv! Yes, our boy loves books!|
|some of Ben's lovies. Elle, the elephant, is his fav; a gift from his cousin's W&H on his first birthday|

|love this little box...yellow B and BEN from Rejuv and other found family hoard items|
Have you ever just had it all come together almost too easily and for almost free? Don't you just love it when that happens?
