My Room: JD

Gardena, CA

It turns out that JD's awesome robot party was only the tip of the robot iceberg. His mom Adriana tells us about his robot room: Our 2 year old son JD loves robots, so we decided a robot big boy room was the perfect choice when we recently remolded his bedroom.

We didn't have an exact budget in mind for his new room remodel but did manage to keep our spending down by re-purposing existing furniture and doing most of our shopping on Craigslist and at IKEA! Since the re-do he's been spending a lot more time in his new room. Whenever someone comes to visit he immediately takes them to his room and wants to play, which makes us so happy!
