Jesse’s Room!

I am so excited with how Jesse’s room turned out. It has given me confidence that I am able to design a room – you would never know I used to be afraid of color and just wanted to paint everything white in our first home!

My inspiration for this room was these green paper lanterns that I got from a friend’s wedding. I saved them for two years, planning all along to use them just like this…thanks, Hannah!

The biggest change in this room was a repostioning of the this cupboard. Before, it was in the middle of the wall, and felt out of proportion in this small bedroom. We pushed it into the corner (which had been an odd, little, wasted space) but as you can see, it still stuck out like a sore thumb.

Painting it same as the walls made them look like part of the wall and created harmony.

This created a cute little spot for Jesse’s new crib, which we found on Craig’s List for 1/3 of the original price – and it wasn’t used 4 times!
All the crib linens I got for $10 at a garage sale – Classic Winnie the Pooh – and they match the decor!

The wooden toys on the dresser were made by Jesse’s great-granpa for Jeremy when he was young.

The closets in the cupboards are perfect for little boy shirts and toys.

The carpet was a remnant – using a remnant saved us $150. That’s the up-side of small rooms! ๐Ÿ™‚ The room is very inviting, and the kids had fun in it yesterday…

    Hey, Olivia ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you stopped by ๐Ÿ™‚ I figured you might be slightly confused ๐Ÿ™‚
    No, the kid isn't mine ๐Ÿ™‚
    Trina (24) is married to Jeremy (he posts occasionally) and it is their baby, Jesse.
    Then there is Anja (20) and she is not married and lives at home.
    These are all pictures of Trina and Jeremy's new house.
    I have 4 other siblings as well. But they aren't contributers to the blog, so I won't confuse you with them. If you hang around long enough you will get to know them soon enough ๐Ÿ™‚
    Hope this has helped your confusion ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ooooooh – I Like it lots! Many years ago I painted my younger brothers' bedroom in three primary colors. Small circles all over. It was only up a year and then younger sisters moved in and wanted purple. ๐Ÿ™ Oh-well it was fun!

    Hey Olivia Joy,
    Awesome blog. Okay I'm a little confused you're going to have to tell me how many siblings you have (names and ages) and how many of them are married. I am assuming that is Trina's son's room? Have I got that much right? Comment me back. Olivia C.
