Leah's BedRoom Tour
Hey Loves! It's currently 17 degrees outside today and the past few days we've had like 5 to 7 degree weather in Chicago. I love snow but I hate cold, I'd rather hibernate than be in it. This post has been in the making for months. There's been parts of it on Instagram and some of you have asked to see more. Leah’s room and the living room were the first two rooms I started on when we moved into our apartment. We decided to give her the master bedroom to fit all her toys and as a play space for her and Joseph. We also knew that depending on how long we live here, Joseph may move into the room with her and we’d later switch them over to bunk beds.
As for now, not only is this her bedroom it's also my home office. My desk area and showcase can be seen as soon as you walk in, but I decided not to show that entire area until I’m done fixing it up for the new year. As for Leah's space, it's finally done.
Before Christmas, we usually donate a lot of toys, clothes, and items that are in good condition over to Salvation Army. This allows us to make room for new stuff and give items away that she no longer plays with.
Eventually, I’d like to repaint these old bookcases. For now, Leah uses them as toy storage and to display her Shopkins Collection. They now live on the top shelf to stay out of Joseph's reach.
Her storage bench is perfect to hold more toys and as a sitting area to read. We found these colorful storage boxes at IKEA. Not only are they stackable but they also roll.
She loves Shopkins and Hatchimals, but she can't get another Hatchimal until they go down in price.
I love these books! The rest of them are in those storage boxes. They were on shelves but Mr. Joseph kept pulling them all down.
I used this old fashioned rocker/bassinet for Joseph when he was a newborn. On the other side, is my desk. It was very convenient to lay him there after rocking him to sleep as I worked. Now that he's bigger, Leah uses it for her baby alive.
This hopscotch rug is also from Ikea. Leah loves playing this game outside after drawing it on the ground with chalk. It was such a cute find and cool to be able to play it indoors as well.
Her mini table set came from Hobby Lobby last year. She uses it for home work, toy play and sometimes she moves it over in front of her bed. She says, it's easier for her to watch tv and YouTube on my computer while she plays. You'll catch most of her own Youtube videos filmed at this desk as well.
On the other side of the room is Leah's bed and tent.
You’ll find pillows from our collection everywhere but the mini pillows are from Target's dollar section for $3 each.
This hand made #blackgirlfly doll was also given to Leah for Christmas. Now, her baby alive has a big sister.
Leah has a ton of stuffed animals that she’s accumulated from birth! Too keep them clean I usually throw the ones I can into the washing machine. Others, I sprinkle corn starch on them and shake them off after I’ve let them sit for awhile.
I kept the hooray balloons from their birthday and the dots on the wall are mini gold glittered wall decals. The moon and star I found at IKEA and Leah uses them as nightlights.
Another item she received for Christmas was this tent from one of her grandmothers. When she doesn’t like laying in her bed. She’s inside watching videos or playing games on her tablet or our phones. Both her and Joseph can be found playing inside here.
