Look! Kid-Painted Walls

When we spotted these painted walls over at Baby Toolkit, our first thought was "Wow, cool parents!" They let their (now grown) 7 year old and 5 year old loose with paintbrushes and, more amazingly, have kept it this way for decades!

In a world controlled by adults and the decisions they made for us and our environment, we're not sure we can think of anything that would have thrilled us more as a kid than an opportunity like this. Young artist grown up Adrienne of Baby Toolkit writes:

Over the years my excitement about the room has waxed and waned. At the height of my embarrassment (late high school and early college), I begged them to let me paint the walls again...All requests were denied...
The room now charms me yet again. Maybe now because I can clearly see in my childish work exactly how adoring and supportive my parents have always been.
