A couple of days ago my son finally decided that he was ready for something a little less bulky in his room that also would be a little more geared towards an 8 year old.
Then as luck would have it we found the perfect bed at
Here it is all set up in his room.
I swear, it doesn't always look like this. My kids are pretty much normal kids. No kids room looks magazine perfect after the first ten minutes of cleaning.
Which is why I snapped these pics immediately after I worked on it and before he got home from school.
Here is what it looked like when I first went in there....
See, like I said....normal kids. If I had a nickle for everytime I stepped on a Lego, well I'd have a ton of nickles.
Now all of his toys fit neatly in vintage suitcases and crates that he can easily slide under the bed when not in use.
He collects globes, this one is a light!
The dresser and locker were curbside treasures. They were both green, so a coat of white and some distressing to make the green pop made them perfect. I mod podged maps on them to go along with his globe collection.
