I shared pictures of Emmett's room almost a year and a half ago. In that time, he has grown several inches, gained some independence and started to learn how to read! My little boy is growing up right before my eyes. We didn't change a whole lot in here, but we did remove some of the "little boy things" that he has obviously outgrown.
I bought two matching blue task lamps from Target a while ago (thinking ahead to the two boys sharing a room!). I picked up the little bench from a garage sale and the chair from an estate sale (it will be really cute when it gets recovered one day!).
The big red "E" is new from my favorite antique store in Dallas. The three books are new from the recently discovered antique store across from Kroger. The dinosaur fossil/figure were both put together by Emmett over the past year.
I added this "zone" to his room in the fall. He needed a place for his backpack and I've always wanted to use a big photo of him somewhere. This is from our trip to Yellowstone, he's in front of Old Faithful as it erupts. I also printed out a few 4x6 photos and let him pick his favorites. Come to think of it, I should probably do that again. Gotta replace that 4-year-old birthday cake pic with a 5-year-old birthday cake pic!
We removed a lot of things from his dresser. Now, it looks less cluttered and really showcases the awesome books I've picked up over the years.
I mean really, who doesn't want to Double Your Child's Grades in School?? These books are perfect for a boy's room. The small blue free mason book is new (to me), it dates back to 1908!
That's all the house tour photos I have to share. Thanks for indulging me. I've got a boy who's about to turn five that I need to write about and I'm sure Theo will soon be breaking the scales at his 15-month check up. I'll keep you informed. ;)
