Tiny Tot Thursdays: repurposed cribs

image

Cribs. A piece of furniture that’s necessary but one that is only needed a short period of time. Unless you plan to broaden your family, you can always take some time to transform it into something else…

image

There are so many ways to repurpose a crib and get more bang for your buck. Kids grow so fast and when they are no longer toddlers, you can still get use out of that crib. Some of the ideas are as simple as literally flipping a crib upside down.

Tiny Tot Thursday: black and white nurseries

image

Here is a color combination you don’t see often in kids rooms: black and white. Is this too adult for you or do you like it with a punch of color?

image

Keeping rugs and some decor or furniture adult friendly can help when the child transitions to older ages…

image

Changing pillowcovers are easy and affordable ways to change a look without breaking the bank…

image

image

Adding color to the wall will make the nursery more gender specific while keeping the main items and decor gender neutral…

image

Wall decals are easy to use and removable when the room takes on a new theme or color scheme…

image

Using graphic patterns and designs can make the space fun for a child and not too serious….

image

You can soften the palette by adding gray to the mix…

image

Black rugs can hide unsightly stains that you may not have time to promptly clean…

Tiny Tot Thursday: fun playroom ideas

image

Have a magnetic wall spot designated for alphabets…

image

Place a mirror against a wall, add a curtain rod or hooks and hang costumes to create a dress up corner. See my other post about using old Halloween costumes for a dress up area here

image

Any curtains and a rug anchoring a microphone can create the stage you need….

image

Another fun idea is using an inflattable pool to store balls or cut swim noodles for a diy ball pit. What are your playroom must haves?

Tiny Tot Thursday: striped walls and ceilings

image

I really like the school desks painted in a hip and modern way. Fun pattern and colors will keep children engaged in homework and learning…

image

A cute tween room with a grown up feel. Using adult headboards and lighting will make it easier to transition as she grows older. It’ll also prove cheaper for the parent as they won’t have to buy new furniture every few years….
image
I like the way the circus canopy striped ceiling….

Tee pees and tents that makes me want to be a kid again…

image

Did you have a tent growing up? I was over my sis n law’s watching the Beyonce specials on tv this Saturday when I decided to lounge in my niece’s tent. Hers wasn’t quite a teepee but it was fun. There is just something about fabric enveloping you. Your own little secluded spot. Of course my niece loved it. So here is a roundup of tents and teepees to buy as well as several diy tutorials…
