Backlogged by the recent busyness for the month of August due to party set ups, I finally got around to continuing with my mini make over project for the house! My son has been bugging me and telling me “Mom you promised you will fix my room in August!”…I was able to do it in the last days of August and here is the result finally!
My idea for his room make over was to make it into a baseball themed bedroom, since he is into baseball. Sadly, it was very difficult to find baseball decors and stuff here in the Philippines. So I resorted to mostly making the decors myself. As I said before, a little creativity goes a long way! 🙂 I was challenged with the DIY projects I had in mind, but as usual, I had a blast making them for my little boy! The best part was when he saw his room and hugged me and said “Thank you mom! It’s the best room in the world!”… All the body aches from drilling and sewing suddenly disappeared!
I also realized that more than the make over of the look of a room, it’s really the organization that is important. When things have their own proper place and you know where they are, toys and stuff are maximized. Most importantly, the room begins to look great when the mess is gone!
I hope you enjoy the make over as much as I enjoyed doing it! 🙂
Of course I want to say thank you to the beautiful ladies of @myclosetmonster who provided me with wonderful stuff for the little boy’s room!
Just a month ago or so, I was able to convince him to let go of toys/stuff that he doesn’t play with anymore. We gave them away, donated some books and sold some at a garage sale. The money we got from the garage sale is the money I use to buy new stuff for the make overs.:) …these toys are already the trimmed down toys that he really plays with.
At first I was hesitant to put curtains and was thinking of just keeping the blinds…plus his room had a lot of windows and I thought that it would be expensive to buy panels of curtains…When I went to Divisoria to buy party stuff, I saw these denim like curtains on Ilaya street…They were just P150.00 per panel!!! Just to give you an idea, the cheapest that I have seen in department stores are P500 per panel! So this was such a steal! Love Divisoria!
Decided to make these felt baseball buntings to decorate his curtains. They are hand sewn and so much fun to make! So happy that it matched his denim blue curtains too!
Made this baseball name hanging with an old baseball wooden bat and felt cutouts of his name. He loved this! Got these other wall hangings from target and wall mart from our last trip. 🙂 He said that this is his favorite part of the room! 🙂
Used these Ikea Kassett boxes from @myclosetmonster as bookends and containers for his Origami papers and books and the other for his lego instruction booklets (that were all over the room before we organized). 🙂 He even helped assemble the boxes!
Made these baseball and bat applique for his throw pillows to add more baseball elements. Placed it with his white sox bear that he got from the very first real baseball game that we watched: ChicagoWhite Sox against Cleaveland Indians! Well obviously he is a Chicago White Sox fan! 🙂
