T is for Tour

For the last post of "T" week I am going to give you all a tour of my kids' rooms.

If you haven't figured it out I have three kids, 2 girls and 1 boy. They are 9, 7, and 5.
Some days it feels like I have about 10, I have no idea how that chick on 19 kids and counting does it and keeps smiling. I think she is on medication, but she is probably just a whole lot more of a woman than I am!!

Anyway, I'll start with daughter #1's room, the 9 year old.

This is the view as soon as you walk in the door. She has my old bedroom furniture that I painted white. Here are some elements in her room:

Bench at the end of the bed. I painted it then wiped glaze over it.
It is upholstered in green cheetah looking print.

A #1 has what is considered the "master bedroom" so she has 2 closets.
The doors on one of the closets would NEVER stay closed so I took the doors off and put up these sheets. This works great because she, her sister and friends use it for their dressing room when they play.

Finally this is her bed wall. You can find step by step how I created the "Ode to A's" here. Yes, I do require my kids make their beds everyday.
I read once that if you could do one thing and 80% of your room would be clean would you?
That one thing is make up your bed.
I never used to make my bed until I was well into my 20's and now I cannot go without making it up. Drives me crazy.

On to daughter #2 (or A #2). This is the 7 year old's room:

This is what you see when you first walk in the door.
Yeah, major Pinky Tuscadaro going on.
Those polka dots on her wall are white, pink and silver. The silver looks a little brown in these, but it really is silver.

There is her printer's tray and the dollhouse hand made by her grandfather.

This is the view from the other side of the room. I use the chiffarobe (anyone else use that word?) for the girls dress up stuff.
Please don't ask me to open the door.
All the things are just shoved in the bottom. It's just plain scary.

Finally here is little man's room. You have already seen some of it here.
This is how it looks when you walk in the door.
The tape is where I had a Star Wars puzzle hung up. It fell off. I haven't fixed it yet.
This is about as far as I can take the Star Wars theme. A few pictures. maybe a Yoda pillow.
No comforter, curtains, etc for me.
Sorry about the blurry picture, but I wanted to include the lockers. Oh and that is Star Wars sheets, I try to keep is subtle without being the decorating Nazi.
Finally, I can't show you Little Man's room without including the mighty warrior scripture. You can read more about it on the link above.

There are the kiddos' rooms. They aren't magazine perfect like I would want them, but I also need to remember they are getting old enough to put their own marks on their spaces.
I try to overlook the posters, pictures and random things they love.
As long as they make their beds and not write on the walls I'm good...for the most part.

Thanks for stopping by,

The Decorating Nazi, ooops, I mean


  1. cute rooms! I just love all the fun colors! The A's and dots are my favorite! Great job!!

  2. These rooms are adorable. Thanks for a tour of your kids' spaces. That woman with 19 kids has got to be on a heavy dose of something. If having children makes you more of a woman, I guess I'm out in the cold!

  3. Hi Molly! Thanks for your input on my front door painting. I love the color schemes you did in your girls' rooms. Very fun and just how girl's rooms should look!

  4. Can you tell me where you got the bedding for A #1's room? My daughter wants a blue room and that bedding would be so cute for it.
