I adored my bedroom in our 110 year old home. So the hubs was shocked at the suggestion that it should be turned into a kids’ room. But it was the largest room and the huge amount of kids toys, clothes, and more demanded the largest space. So I pushed, and Mr. L . argued, but still renovated our messy study into a new space for us! He wanted some color on the walls while I always like a neutral, so we finally agreed on a seafoamy green.
And move in…not as much room in this spot so we had to edit. I haven’t decided if I need a nightstand, using a chair and vintage tray for now. I’ve had this armoire forever! I bought it in an estate sale in a tiny town.
Vintage laundry basket above, vintage books below…
Perfect for me, this vintage handpainted tray was thrifted years ago, before I was a Lemondrop.
This bed was made by a local craftsman/welder who used old fencing… sometimes even iron fencing from cemeteries. So Edgar Allan Poe, right? What do you think of the room? Did we do a good job with our old house sans decorating advice from a pro?
Now, the kids’ room renovation begins in earnest. Prayers and well wishes appreciated since we need another project right now like we need another project!
We still haven’t decided on a color for the walls, I am pulling for this scheme without much luck.
