Do you see the desperate plea? That is my 3 year old son, William, under that blanket. He is a lucky boy. He has is very own room. But as far as decor goes, he has hardly gotten the royal treatment. The wall color is the same as when his older sister had that room. He is still in a hand-me-down crib (!) poor boy. That is what you get for being child no. 3! And the room lacks boy elements.
This used to be a nice mobile with 8 pretty paper birds. Something happened…
Poor William is making the best of his space by decorating with his own drawings….
Oh, and here is the lamp…
Prince William is a very happy and content boy (he is such a sweetheart!) and he is not complaining much. But I feel that it is time to give his room a little bit of a makeover and make it his very own special & happy place. I am on a strict budget, though. No big splurges here. I will need your help to be creative with decor, style and budget. I am counting on you to help me get this right.
I am actually going to start with the window treatments because I have a feeling it might take a while before I find what I want and then actually have them installed (but I might be wrong).
Right now all that’s here is some plain white wooden shutters.
The window is rather large (bigger than it looks) with its 76″ width. I would love to install some roman shades, flat. Perhaps something with stripes? (And with black-out lining).
I have been lurking over at Smith & Noble lately but what I am looking at will set me back at least $550 + tax. Is that reasonable? Do you have any other shopping sites you recommend?
Next up: Wall color. I will equip myself with some color swatches over the weekend and trust that you will let me know what you think once I have them posted.
Happy weekend to you all! I have slowly eased myself into blogging again after a fun winter holiday. I hope to have even more energy next week!
