Show Us Where You Live Friday- Kids Rooms

It is Friday already and this week at Kelly's Corner it is time to tour children's bedroom's/nursery.

This is Ayla's room, we actually have not changed anything since she was born. Since she is still in her crib, I am going to wait until she is in her big girl bed before I change anything. I have seen the cutest little girl bedding at Homegoods lately but I am not going to rush anything. I will let her sleep in her crib until she can no longer move she outgrows it!!

My husband got a little carried away with wanting to keep "toys" off of the floor and so he put some hooks on the wall to hang the bigger toys. It doesn't look all that great but it gets the job done!

Her name on the wall behind the bed was the first thing that we "made" for her room. John also painted some patterns on the wall that matched her baby bedding but after we put all of the furniture in, well you really couldn't see much of it.
Anyway, Ayla loves all of her butterflies (which she calls "fireflies") hanging from the ceiling

Everything turned out really cute, but I am anxious to get rid of the shelves and put some paintings day!!





Yes I know, I have a problem with buying clothes.... my husband tells me all of the time!! So that is it for Ayla's room

And this is Brennan's room

To be honest with you, Brennan's room was not even finished before he was born. Since Ayla was a baby throughout my pregnancy with him and since I am sick as a dog when I am pregnant, the room was the last thing to be done.

We didn't even paint, we planned on painting some road lines and racing designs on the walls but we never got around to it. Hopefully we will be able to do that in the future. John did everything in this room, if you haven't figured it out, he is a huge fan of cars, "fast cars" to be exact. There was no question what this room would look like..ha!

All of the antique toys hanging from the ceiling and on the shelves (sorry honey) are my husband's when he was a little boy. The hot wheels cars on the shelves are his as well! The drawing of the Mustang on the wall was done by my husband so we decided to hang it in his room.

Thank goodness Brennan loves cars! But I really don't think he has much of a choice!!!


I wasn't going to show this picture of the closet because it is SO MESSY, but I am just keeping it real ya'll!!!!

Hope you enjoyed the rooms, have a great weekend everyone!!!
