My favorite word when decorating is without a doubt is sentimental. If you use something with meaning in your design I can promise you, it will outlast that pillow you picked up from the big box store!
Back in October when we had Cooper’s first birthday party my dad gave me my old toy box I had as a girl. I’d forgotten about it but as soon as I saw it, I remember lots of memories of emptying out the toy box and hiding inside of it. I love that he gave me the toy box so I could use it for Cooper’s room.
Cooper is 16 months old now and he’s starting to play so much more. He loves cars, dump trucks and garbage trucks. I don’t know if it’s because he’s my last baby but I feel like I’m guilty of buying him more toys than I did for my daughter (sorry Sloan)!! In my defense my daughter didn’t take a huge interest in toys she seriously loved books and even played with them.
So as Coop gets older I need more space for his stuff and decided to start working to make a fun place for him to play in his closet and his new toy box is going to look great in there!
I gave a little sneak peek on instagram of what I was up to when I started the makeover.
I picked up some wooden letters to put on his toy box and painted them a custom blue and ultra pure white paint by Behr. (Behr Premium Plus Ultra, Stain-Blocking Paint & Primer in One)
The after isn’t perfect, the toy box is old, part of it is wood and part of it is particle board so I did the best I could.
Sentimental Toy Box
Cooper is very happy with his new toy box and has already been inside of it and sat on top of it! (about 100 times)
There’s been a few more changes to his room that I’m excited to show you so stay tuned!!
One more thing, I thought I’d start sharing great ideas, rooms, etc. with you everytime I do my own post, I read and research so much and I love sharing what I find!! So while researching some organization for kids room I ran across this nursery that I totally fell in love with! It is so good!!
