One More Mommy

Thoughts of a mom and her husband, son, daughter, pets, friends, job (or lack thereof), house, family, trying to be more ecologically aware...

Design Monies

I am in the process of decorating the guest room to be Luke’s room so we can move him in seamlessly from the baby room. Luke’s room is of the theme Trains, Planes, and Automobiles, because he’s a little tiny walking stereotype. DIVERSIFY KID, DIVERSIFY.


So, I have been on the quest to create this bedroom o’ whimsy on the smallest budget possible, even though I had no real number for the budget. Small.

Thus far we are at $436.

An itemized list (more for my info than yours)
Car sheets - $24.99 (Marshall’s)
Border/Comforter/Sham/Car Pillow - $76 (Ebay)
Little Tikes Blue Race Car Bed - $150 (Ebay)
Paint (Red) - $22 (Home Depot)
Road Map Rug - $10 (Ikea)
Pictures – $23 (Michaels)
Tracks to hang model trains - $55 (Ebay)
Storage Unit - $60 (Target)
Model Plane - $11 (Michaels)
Firetruck Piggy Bank - $4 (Garage Sale)

We need curtains, a small dresser, and to frame the pictures, and then I think we’re done. Buying stuff, anyway, we still have to get it all together.

Trains, planes and automobiles? Don't forget to purchase two pillows. That way I can ask Luke where his hands are. And when he says, "Between two pillows," I can say, "THOSE AREN'T PILLOWS!!!"

And shame on you if you don't know that reference.
