Lucas' Lovely "Baby Zone"

My Room

Name: Lucas (1)
Location: Norfolk, VA

This space used to be my craft room. Once our third child arrived though, we decided it would be better used as his own baby safe zone.

We had a queen sized mattress already, so we decided to try that out as his bed. I wasn't sure about how a mattress on the floor would look, but the baby just loves being able to climb up there himself. It has been wonderful.

The whole family gravitates to this room. It gets tons of sunlight (and we painted it a pale yellow). We used lots of colorful toys and natural wood in this space. Almost everything in here we already had from our other two children. The large mirror used to be over a vanity in my grandparents' home, now it's perfect for him to see himself and the whole room. I quickly made the little hanger for all the kids play scarves. An easy project and all the kids love it. The wood dollhouse is from an old kindergarten classroom. It's the perfect height for him right now. He loves pulling off the toys and books and putting them back in again. I'm planing on making a whole bunch of large star pillows in different fabrics for the bed, so far only that one blue one has been made.
