Caden's Room

Originally, Jayci and Caden shared a room. However, the amount of sleep that everyone received under this arrangement was minimal, to say the least. So, we converted a little room at the back of the house (next to Zack's room, that way he can just up with him every time he wakes up at 3am. Ha) to Caden's very own little space to sleep and play and create and live. We have some finishing touches to work on still, but at least it finally suits my colorful, beautiful boy!

Globe and crate - Thrifted
Stool - Target
Lockers - hand-me-downs from a friend that we spray painted a happy yellow.

DIY Radio Flyer wagon bookshelf for baby's room
Adam also made this shelf for the room from an old wagon we found at a flea market. He wrote about it right here if you want to know how he did it, cause y'all already know I have no idea.

This was an old map we found, and had one of our boys from the neighborhood create this art on it, which I love obviously. And then I mounted it on a piece of Plywood and had Adam screw it into the wall with drywall anchors, because I'm fancy like that.

Meaningful nursery art
Caden's bedroom - maps, yellow locker and thrifted/DIY details
Feed basket from Target
This is art I created at the Lovely workshop - it was perfect because it's a picture by Elizabeth Messina of a map with a heart of flowers on top. Of course, I covered over it with wax and then painted on top, so you can hardly see that anymore -- oops.

He wanted to pose for you in his "petty" (pretty) new room. 
This mobile will eventually hang above his crib. I sewed it with the help of my sweet friend Erica, and then lost it. If anyone sees it while they're at my house, let me know.
Mobile - Cloud with colorful heart "raindrops"
Globe, crate, and yellow lockers
The best part of the room? The cute little boy who lives there, obviously.
