Jonathan's Robot Room Tour

Jonathan is quickly approaching his first birthday, and his room is finally done!

Before I was pregnant I was already a frequent visitor of Ohdeedoh, even though we weren't really planning for kids just yet. I loved all the room tours, they are all so different and so inspiring. They do ::not:: help with baby fever. When I found out I was pregnant I already knew if I had a boy I wanted ROBOTS! I usually prefer more vintage eclectic styles and muted colors, my husband wanted bright colors. So this is what came of our different styles ...

A brightly colored eclectic robot room.

See the full tour.

I love to make and create as much as time allows. So I made what I found time for, the curtains and his night-time routine poster are my favorites. I really wanted to make a quilt but I'm not an experienced quilter and didn't think I'd have the time or patience, so I found a great one on Etsy. With most of the furniture I chose things with clean lines. I found some great pieces at local vintage shops, like the robot and blocks.

I decided to put robot and gear wall decals low enough for my son to interact with them, hoping it inspires a creative mind. Because the room is on the smaller side and awkwardly shaped I removed the closet doors and painted the interior orange, to give the room a little surprise. I hope my son enjoys his space as much as I enjoyed creating it!

This is awesome! I love that room!

You said something about a quilt. What about your blankie that you refurbished for him? It's sort of like a quilt.

You never cease to amaze me with your talents!!!!
