Kids Dr. Seuss Bathroom with Wall Mural

Angela from Decorating the Dorchester Way really wanted to decorate her son’s bathroom with the Pottery Barn Kids’ Dr. Seuss bathroom theme, but it was no longer available. Not wanting to dish out the cash for eBay prices, Angela replicated the look with paint and some Target accessories. Angela used a projector for the fish and then free handed the rest of her mural. Pretty stinking impressive! I love how she incorporated lots of cute details from stenciled accessories to the iconic Dr. Seuss hat.

Rollaway Toy Storage Crate

Now that the presents have all been unwrapped are you wondering where you are going to store them all??? Desiree from Camelot Art Creations made this rolling storage bin to corral all the toys that threaten to take over her living area each day. The beauty of this piece is that it allows her children to be accountable for cleaning up themselves since it requires simply throwing the toys into the crate. Desiree built her crate for free using pallet wood, but if building’s not your thing, you could also doctor up an unfinished crate from the craft store.

Easy as 1, 2, 3 Numbers Floor Pouf

Charlotte from Ciburbanity recently participated in a contest where she was challenged to create a sewing project using fabric from Waverly. Since she doesn’t consider herself a skilled seamstress, Charlotte knew a copycat project was the way to go and found an adorable numeric pouf for inspiration. She combined her lovely blue floral fabric with canvas drop cloth to put a fun twist on Land of Nod’s comfy math cushion.

Kids Train Table

Like couches in living rooms, activity tables are staple furnishings for playrooms. However, they can be quite pricey, especially considering the fact that kids aren’t exactly gentle on furniture. Janette from Style with Cents shares how to make a table that is TWICE as big and HALF the cost of one of Pottery Barn Kid’s most popular activity tables using MDF and fence posts. I can’t say it any better than Janette – “That’s what you call WINNING, my friends.”

Brooke, being the creative genius that she is, turned two lazy Susans into fun AND decorative spinning chore charts for her kids. Who would ever think kids would actually […Read More]

Paula from Sweet Pea fulfilled a little girl’s Christmas wish by making a balance beam for her American Girl McKenna doll. The balance beam was on back order until March so Paula and her husband really came to the rescue. Their little friend tells everyone that her balance beam was crafted by “real live elves.” Too cute!

Jenn of A Jennuine Life had been planning to make her daughter a sleeping bag for Christmas. When her daughter went gaga for a Sherpa sleeping bag in the PB Kids catalog, the project got pushed to the top of Jenn’s to-do list. Jenn totally outdid herself with this snuggly Hello Kitty bag that features a plush Kitty face and fleece lining. I am amazed by Jenn’s work! I just might start sleeping on the floor if I had a sleeping bag like this one!

Retro Play Kitchen

After seeing some awesome vintage play kitchens for kids, Kayla Danelle decided to tackle her own repurpose and make one for her son. Kayla’s dad got in on the action and tracked down a set of upper kitchen cabinets to transform into the kitchen set. I love how this came out and the genius idea to reuse old cabinets. Why start from scratch when the work’s already done for you {Wink}?
