Crime, Punishment & Castles

Since we moved into our new home back in November, we’ve had grand ideas for decorating each room. However, I was eight months pregnant at the time, and my husband wouldn’t let me anywhere near a paint can. We knew that we could only afford to complete one project at a time, but we had no idea where to start first. That was until our three year old decided to help us out! Within one month of our daughter’s birth in January, our son had decorated our new home with SEVEN murals!!! Geez! Some form of regression? Acting out? Jealousy? Terrible threes? Who knows! I wanted to freak out at first, but I had to take a step back and remind myself that I would one day miss those crayon marks on the walls. So I decided to take pictures for his scrapbook then put him to work…..

The pictures I’m not showing are the ones where he finally broke down into tears. Sad, I know, but he had to get the point that coloring all over the walls is not acceptable. So it looks like we’ll be starting our decorating in his room! We have grand ideas of a castle themed room, and I can’t wait. The paint is bought…has been for about three months now…We’ll get to it eventually. In the mean time, I’m having a blast gathering ideas. 🙂

How cute is this?!

Inspiration for curtains, maybe?

Definitely have to do this!

 I can’t wait to get started!

  1. That’s awesome! I absolutely love the little reading nook on the last picture! Can I grab that as a future idea for our kid rooms? 😉

    That is super cool! I can’t wait to see it all come together.

  3. I did some searching on pintrest for ya.

    I like the brick painted walls. Might be overkill to do the whole room, but maybe a mural or something.

    That one isn’t a room, but I dig the pennents.

    Most of the other castle things I’m finding are for girls, but I’ll keep thinking.
