i think it’s so sweet when parents make over furniture or rooms for their children. i grew up with parents that were cool with me wanting to repaint or redecorate my space and it really did a lot to make me feel at home. so i was happy to hear from parents ben and ian about projects they did for their children.
first up is ben, who remade his son’s dresser using paint and a little old-fashioned elbow grease. the hardware update combined with the folkart chalkboard paint makes for a fun and cheerful piece that would be great in any child’s room. great work, ben!
next up is ian, who just finished this room for 2 year-old daughter, devin. ian explained that, “the design on the wall actually came out of choosing too dark of a green the first time round and not realizing it was too dark until it was on the walls.” but after a little tinkering, they are thrilled with the results. there’s just something so sweet and so special about parents making things for their children with their own two-hands. thanks so much for sharing, ian.
