28 May The Fire Truck Room #3: The Reveal
To review, the fire truck theme came about from the fact that my son’s Farfar use to be a fire fighter. Both he and my husband have fond memories of those fire fighter days– the large fire trucks and putting out the fires. Also, I like that I can use the red and white color scheme for any future rooms that Aiden might ask for, such as a Nebraska Husker room (my husband’s alma mater University of Nebraska). The third reason, I just think the theme is super cute! I mean, what is not to love about fire trucks and there is a lot to choose from when it comes to decoration!
The moment has arrived, the big reveal. I hope I didn’t build this room up too much! This is the right side of the room when you walked in before.
And now this is the right side of the room. The table was $14 at IKEA and the chair were given to me by my sister Luci. They use to be beat up spider-man chairs, but I painted them white so hopefully they can go with other kids things in the future. The main black area above the table is a chalk board so Aiden can draw to his heart’s content.
And this is the window side of the area now. You will see that I hung a couple more shelves, the hanging bumper pad book holders, and the toy box also doubles as a window seat.
Here is the new painted toddler bed and the fire truck painting I made him.
That’s the big reveal of the fire truck room. I hope I will have given some of you out there some cute ideas to add to your own toddler’s room. Now only if we can get him to stay in that toddler bed…..that’s a different story and there will be more on that soon!
