Joshua's Room

One of my hobbies is decorating our home. I've been working on it a little at a time, starting with the kids' rooms. Joshua's room has been done for a couple of years now and I'm finally getting around to sharing it here on my blog. 

And the little cutie himself (18 months old here but he's three now!).
First of all, everything I read online about painting stripes claimed they are really not that bad. I did not find that to be the case. I couldn't have done it without my husband's help. They were a pain but I really love how they turned out and it was definitely worth the effort. I'm so thankful to my sister, brother and mom (in addition to my husband) for helping me paint as well. They are amazing!

For those who want to know, here is the list of where several of the items came from:

Red cubby bookshelf: Expedit Kallax from Ikea
Red floating shelves: Ikea
Three red frames above the changing table: Ikea
Prints above the changing table: etsy
Gilder: Babies R Us (years ago - we used this for our oldest son, Oliver).
Curtains: Land of Nod (These were a bit of a splurge. I try to be somewhat frugal and reuse what we already have but I fell in love with these.)
Lamp: Target
Changing Table: Amazon (years ago - we used it with Oliver as well).
Quilt on glider: My mom made this for him. I love it!
Yellow cubby containers: Martha Stuart at Home Depot (I don't see the yellow ones online).
Grey and white cubby container: Land of Nod
Metal basket on red cubby shelf: Target
Joshua name bunting: I absolutely love this. A woman in Australia made it for me but she has since closed her etsy shop, sadly.
Rug: Urban Outfitters (I don't see it on their site anymore).
Clock: Target
Yellow dot pillow on glider: Pottery Barn several years ago (I don't see it on their site anymore).
Photo mobile: I got mine at a garage sale years ago but there is one here.
Red basket next to his glider: Michaels
Trash can: Target

This was such a fun project. Walking into his room makes me happy.
