• Tell Your Friends

My childhood bedroom was straight out of a movie, complete with pink bedding, a frilly canopy and curio cabinets full of not-to-be touched dolls and figurines. It was lovely but not the playful, whimsical space I longed for. Oh, to be a kid now. You wouldn’t be able to extract me from that uber-cute play area with drum set. And Brian Patrick Flynn’s photo wall mural project is awesome!

Brian Patrick Flynn Favorite Toy Photo Project

Brian Patrick Flynn makes it easy to turn any photograph into an joyous piece of art. Simply take a high-resolution photo of your child’s favorite toys (he suggests picking easily identifiable objects such as cars, stuffed animals or dolls), have the image printed onto vinyl and attach the print to a handmade box frame. Voila!

Janell Beals Colorful Painted Chalkboard Dresser

Give me something to draw on, and I’m one happy camper. That’s why I love this colorful chalkboard dresser. Paint your child’s dresser with bold chalkboard paint, and help keep him or her organized by labeling each drawer with its contents. Or let them create their own artwork.

Brian Patrick Flynn Bedroom Stair Post Kids' Desk

Every child needs a place to do homework, so why not make them a colorful desk of their own. All you need are wooden posts, plywood and paint to create this pint-size piece. Resting on two legs, this chunky desk delivers a modern edge to any space.

      And would have saved my little brother from getting in trouble when he so conveniently labeled his all-white dresser "1, 2, 3" on each drawer!
