For My Prince

I have been busy these past few weeks decorating and making basic stuff for my children's room. They are still very young so they will be sharing a room for the time being. I had a lot of fun looking for stuff for my son's room. He loves cars, trains, airplanes, basically anything that has an engine and moves! So I've decided to incorporate a transportation theme :o). These are what I have made so far:

A mirror with a heli and a train. The mirror was on sale. It was previously SD$39.95 and it went down to SD$9.95! It was the perfect colour too! I just had to grab it!

This is a clothes hanger. Bought the hanger at a thrift shop for RM2.00. It was a natural wood colour so I spray painted it blue.

I was looking everywhere for a blue wastepaper basket and found it at a local supermarket. A car, train and airplane later.. voila!

I found these colourful boxes at a two dollar store. It would be very handy for putting his little toy cars and trains in (all 1,578 of them! :o))..

A little blue clock (shhh.. I bought it for only RM5.90 :o)).

I found this lamp at IKEA. Not as cheap as I would have liked it to be but it compliments all the other stuff so it's a good excuse :o).

Ohh.. and I'm so proud of this growth chart that I made from scratch! I went to the hardware store and got them to cut a long piece of wood for me (for just RM4.00!). Brought it home and spray painted it blue. A lot of measuring and gluing and drawing later.. a growth chart is born! :o)

And last but not least, a sign for his door :o)

Glad to say that it all did not cost very much but my son gets all excited every time he looks at them :o) Ahh.. the little pleasures of life :o) Enjoy my little munchkin, mama loves you!
