I have slowly been renovating both the kids' rooms, and I still have quite a way to go, but for now Ryleah has made herself a vibrant yet cosy place to retreat to.
When given some money for Christmas, Ryleah invested in 3 old trunks and an old iron gumball machine. She also asked for something old for Christmas from Ben and I, see the little marianette puppet on her wall? That was so hard to find! Will need to take some close ups for you later.
Looks like she takes after me in her taste for all things vintage! She picked it all herself.
We picked up this cute owl backpack in an ancient water town during our first trip to China
We found this awesome crochet blanket in a cute little shop in Daylesford. At $35 it was probably a bit overpriced as it was pre-loved, but it would take me forever and a day to make one this size so we snapped it up. It fits her bed perfectly and the colours couldn't be better!
Next we plan on knocking her wardrobe out (then her room will be big enough to fit this) and making the old ensuite into her walk-in-robe. She will have her own basin and mirror in there so when she's a teenager she won't be hogging the main bathroom all the time!
See, we're thinkers!
Do you love decorating your kids rooms as much as I do?
