Since it was a while ago, I'll just remind you that it was a longer/narrow room (with HORRID rose flowered wallpaper), and we built a wall in the middle so that Princess could have her own room. The door above goes to her room.

Please imagine the ugly (but we got it for free) play kitchen gone and replaced by this red IKEA chair. AHHH, that's better, right? Hopefully that'll happen soon.
More details tomorrow, but you can click on the pictures to see notes in flickr.
Originally I wanted the toy cabinets (IKEA, unfinished) to be red, too. Eventually I decided that they'd probably be too high contrast. There's plenty of that without a giant red cabinet, right? I decoupaged red dotted scrapbook paper to make the letters on the doors. The cabinets have baby locks on them so that the boys have to ask to get something out - and to do that, they have to put something away.
The train table rotates between trains, Playmobil and Legos. The bins beneath the table hold engines + track, star wars stuff, and cars.
Not shown are the cubbies (for shoes and library books)with red-framed baby pictures of the kiddos above them, and the big sliding door with new white drapes (goodbye vertical blinds!).
For pictures I used inexpensive IKEA frames, put red-checked scrapbook paper in them, and on top of that put illustrations from cute books. There's kind of a Dick and Jane/train theme going on. On the left are pix from D&J, and on the right are some from The Little Train. The framed Thomas poster was a hand-me-down from a neighbor - someday it'll disappear, but for now the boys love it - and it matches. Some of the bunting fabric is D&J, too.
All in all I'm pretty pleased - it's a fun room, and turned out pretty much the way I imagined it - how often does that happen! :)
