We moved to a new house last October and I finally got around to decorating the kids' rooms. My boys will be turning 1 and 2 next week. (They will actually both be 1 year old for 5 days! LOL) My almost 2 year old is really into cars, so we decided to go with a race car themed room. They are sharing a room.

Here is the picture from the doorway. My soon to be two year old, Chip, is standing on the bed. Right now he is in the big crib and his little brother is in the porable crib in the corner, but when he starts sleeping in this bed, his brother will move into his crib. I still need to make a quilt for his race car bed.

The mural spans two walls. It is a wall paper mural. I cut uout all the pieces and pasted them up with border paste. The dresser was mine when I was a kid. I just painted it freehand with old craft paints and it doubles as a changing table.

There are two closets in the room...one for each. We bought some retro tin oil and gas signs and the stop light really lights up. I need to paint the bookshelf to match the dresser.

This is the coat rack by the door.

We will buy another race car bed once the youngest is ready to move from the crib. We would also like to get rid of teh carpet and get wood floors in the next year.

This must have made your boys soooooooo happy! I love the way you did the mural and repurposing the dresser/change table with some creativity and paints. Well done. Smiley

One word of advice from a car bed buyin' mama to another....buy a twin size bed and then as the older one gets bigger he can grow into it. I had bought the toddler sized and had to up grade shortly after. Could have stopped feeding him to slow his growth but I doubt that is allowed Wink.

Ya just can't stop a crafty girl!

That is a really good idea, sum1smuma. We bought the bed from a military family that was moving, so we got it pretty cheap.
