I have a 4 year old son and another on the way (we don't want to know if it's a boy or girl) and we are about to move.The only thing I'm missing are nice kid looking shelves or those wall decor where we can put picture frames or toys on for both rooms. I can't find any kid themed ones. The walls are brightly coloured so I think dark colours like dark brown, black and so on are out as they would not fit. I'm not too fond of white either but if it's the only choice I guess it would do. :) Thanks Outblush! Sincerely, Amelia"
Amelia, I, Rachel H., mother of a one-year-old boy, would love to help you out. Check out my selections below. My favorites were from a site called www.kidswoodworks.com. The shelves there have a fun kiddie look to them, but because they're in solid colors, they will also work as your sweet little babies grow up and become sullen, smelly teenagers. *sob*
1 - KidsWoodWorks Double Shelf ($60-$70)
2 - Baseball Glove Corner Shelves ($35)
3 - Closetmaid Cubeicals Cube Organizer ($50, shown w/ Closetmaid Fabric Drawers, Mulberry Picture Frame, and EduCraft Mosaic Tile Picture Frames. This could be painted another color.)
4 - Pottery Barn Kids Ryder Simple Shelving ($59)
5 - KidKraft Firehouse Bookcase ($98, on sale)
6 - KidsWoodWorks Single Shelf ($45-$50)
7 - KidsWoodWorks Magazine Shelf ($60-$65)
