Kids Room Accessories

While we worked in the Bear's room, I realized that we would hear the ever-popular "That's not fair!" from our other 2 kiddos upon their arrival home from camp Grama & Pop. So, after a quick trip to Hobby Lobby (ok, I spent 3 hours in there)  to pick up some accessories for Girly and Bud, I had several other projects to juggle.

Girly is into butterflies. Her kindergarten class was the Butterfly class, so it's been butterflies ever since. And there's a reason I call her Girly. She is. Not sure how that happened, since I don't consider myself to model the girliness she exudes, but anyway... So she's into pink, purple, anything that sparkles. You get the idea. Here's what I found in my happy place, Hobby Lobby.

I used white eye screws and fishing line to hang them at varying heights. When the air conditioning/heat is on, the butterflies "fly". Very fun.

She was also having trouble reaching her shirts hung in her closet, so I added a lower rack and one of those hanging cubby things. Pink, of course. I gave her a small laundry basket for her dance costumes. Her dollhouse lives in the closet too, and all the accessories to that have their own bin. Those 3M Command hooks came in handy to hang her bags. So many bags!

Please note - the closet has not looked this way since Girly got home. But I enjoyed looking at the organization while it lasted. I have since added a pink over-the-door shoe holder, where she puts her treasures like headbands, barbies, and rocks she collects. (I know, she's Girly, but she still likes dirt, rocks, and worms. Go figure.)

She loved it! She also loved the board & batten in her sister's room. So, that's on the project list. Girly wants her room painted a light turquoise blue above the b&b. I can deal with that. I was afraid she'd ask for purple, which is almost as gag-worthy as pink in my book. On a wall - it can just be too much for me.

Check back next week for a look at Bud's fisherman room accessories! Have a great weekend - don't forget to turn back the clocks!

  1. Love the butterflies. You have me thinking about how to make them!

    You probably could make them or at least something like them - but they were not very expensive - maybe $2-3 each? I can't remember exactly. I'd love to see what you come up with if you do make them!
