We are about ready to transition to a “big boy” bed and do some redecorating, so I thought I better take some pictures of Adam’s room before it changes!
I picked out the colors before Adam was born, and we didn’t know if we were having a boy or a girl. I decided to go with red and white, and my Grandma Ede helped me make this quilt.
We were in the middle of renovations (wait a minute, we still are!) when Adam was born, so he didn’t move into his room until he was about 4 months old.
The recliner from the living room used to sit in this corner, but when we moved it downstairs, in came this super comfy, super ugly “muppet chair.” I have two of these chairs, which I bought at a garage sale for $5 each. They swivel, and are truly comfortable, but the furry upholstery reminds us of the Muppets.
The changing table was long ago re-purposed for books and toys. We read about 14 books every night. (Okay, that’s an exaggeration, but if I let Adam choose, we’d read at least 9-11 each night!)
My mom found this dresser at the Goodwill for $25, and the barn door was in a shed when we moved here. Yes, it’s crooked.
This was my childhood dresser. I repainted it white in college. No, I didn’t distress it…the chipped paint is from being moved (and used) over the last several years!
My best friend’s sister had the “Adam” bank painted for him – the normal design has a chicken, but she had them paint a turkey just for him!
