william's room

william is my only child right now and I have really enjoyed putting together his room. the first few pieces I bought were his lowboy and globes, all awesome finds at one of my favorite antique shops in palouse, wa. the globes, each a different size, inspired and led me to where his room is now. a very good friend of mine, michelle, made book-ends out of bricks, old maps an glue, perfect for standing up his favorite thing - books. the chalk board above his crib i found for a few dollars, repainted it and scribbled out the world in chalk. 

the 'w' sitting on a picture ledge is another one of my favorite things. i love 3-D letters, alone on a bookshelf, spelling out a name, old ones made of wood or metal, like the one he has. next to his 'w' is a framed picture of his first finger painting, i like seeing his framed art work.


i recently found a picture online that is very similar to william's lowboy set up. i was very pleased. it isn't prominent in the picture but you can see it in the lower right corner.

i'd like a similar bed and chair next.
