Toddler room makeover: It’s time to do something about June’s room

by Jessie K on July 27, 2012

I love decorating. I love decor. I love glossy magazines and blogs and pin boards devoted to the topic. My problem is that I get so overwhelmed by all the insanely creative and fantastic ideas out there that I usually end up feeling more fetal than inspired…especially when it comes to the decoration of kids’ rooms.

Anymore, it seems like it’s not enough to give a child their own special place to sleep and play. Rather, a kid’s room must inspire creativity and individuality–whimsy! A romp on the back of Aslan through Narnia! A princess fetish!

It’s no wonder June’s bedroom looks like this…

Yep the link to “the rest of the story” isn’t working.

The new storage unit does make a world of difference. Don’t buy into the overdone kiddie room thing. My mother couldn’t afford to do a room in extreme child decor, which would have forced a complete redo in a very few years, plus people didn’t expect so much back then. I just had a normal paint job and furniture, but had my own radio and later a stereo) and all my things, and was happy as a clam. I wasn’t warped for life or anything. I loved my room, because it was my private space. From a young age, I knew the best decor was a full book shelf!

Just do what you are comfortable with and can afford and she will be just as happy as if she had a “princess palace.”
