Kids Bedrooms

Roomspiration continues today over at All Things Bright and Beautiful with kids bedrooms.  I have a son and a daughter.  In honor of Roomspiration today, here is a tour of both of their bedrooms:
My daughter's room was updated a few months back on a budget.
I made the bedskirt and the euro pillows as well as the neck rolls.
The chair was reupholstered.  It started out looking like this:
I think everyone had a glider chair like this.  
Big transformation and so much less money than a new chair.
I recently found a desk and chair on Craigslist for $30.  Using AS Chalk Paint I transformed the desk and chair and reupholstered the chair with fabric I had on hand.
The wall in her room was stenciled by me.  It took five hours but the end result was worth all of the hard work.  You can check out how I did it here.

Here is my son's room.  Clearly a baseball fan, his room definitely has a sports theme. 
This was his room about four years ago.  We were in transition from his toddler years Pooh room to a sports room.  He didn't want to totally get rid of the mural my brother painted until he was ten when he was finally ready to let us paint over it.  The side table was an unfinished piece of furniture from AC Moore which I painted and added baseball knobs.  All pre-blog...imagine that.

My husband and my son are visiting all of the MLB baseball stadiums.  At each stadium they collect a baseball for his case.

I sewed the valance for his window.  I wanted it to look like pennants to go with the sports theme.  
Here's a close up of the table I painted for his room.

I headed over to link up my kid's bedrooms.  I hope you will stop by All Things Bright and Beautiful and link up your kid's rooms too.

Hope to see you there!

Both bedrooms are beautiful! I have to say I'm stunned by the glider...I have one sitting in my basement right now. I had to idea it could be turned into something so pretty.

Lovely! Would you be willing to share a step by step of how you transformed the rocker? Yes, I have 2 actually of those very same chairs in your daughters room. Awesome job. :)

Your kids rooms are so amazing Judy! You can tell you put lots of thought and time into them and they look incredible. I still can't get over what you did to your daughter's glider! You are so talented my friend! :-)

I am super impressed by both rooms, girly...especially with your daughter's! You can tell it was done with love...I'm especially crushing on that PBteen pillow I spy on the bed, I've been eyeing it for a while now, I might just have to take the plunge! Such cute rooms! Thanks for linking up, girl!

I just finished my son's room and am about to start my daughter's...my son just turned 2 and my daughter is almost 11 mos, so we are in the stage it looks like you just left. I LOVE the daybed with all the pillows and patterned bedskirt.
