I love adding Christmas touches to my kids’ rooms to make the holidays a little extra special for them. My boys’ room was already decorated in Navy blues and grays (see pictures here), so I thought adding a festive pop with red plaid pillows would be fun!
Ella has a tinsel tree in her room with pink and girly touches. My boys didn’t have a tree, and my sweet little man really wanted one like his sister. When I ran across this cute one, I snatched it up. I loved the galvanized bucket with typography and the tree was so pretty with the pinecones. It didn’t come with lights, so I added those. My plan was to keep the Christmas tree up on the dresser, but it ended up being bigger than I had anticipated once I got it home! Oh well… :). The boys love it and it is easy enough to scoot around when we need to.
One of the main focal points in their room is this sweet antique dresser that I found secondhand and painted with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint. I love the charm it adds to their room. I lightly sanded the entire piece and didn’t use the bonding agent. I painted it the color “Trophy” (find it here) and left a topcoat off of it for several months to achieve a very natural, heavy chippy look. I just ordered some of the MMSMP Tough Coat to prevent further chipping (and to hold up to my boys). I really love the chippy look of the dresser juxtaposed against the clean paint and lines of my DIY barn door window treatment.
I had to throw this picture in here because this stick horse is one of their favorite little toys and it keeps ending up out in the room. I think it matches so sweetly, but I love that they love to play with a toy (ride their horsey) that their daddy played with when he was a little boy. My hubby’s great aunt Leola made it for him.
The little ones make Christmas so special. I am so thankful for them.
