If you happen to follow me on Instagram, you may remember when I shared a photo of a stack of pallets that we scored for FREE! I was doing a little happy dance at that, because I had some big plans in mind for a few of them anyway.
Since our move from Michigan to Florida, Brayden and Aliyah have been sharing a room as we’ve been using other rooms for all of the guests that stay with us now that we live near a beach… but it also started out as a comfort to each other after such a big change, and for the most part, they’ve grown to love it.
What I didn’t love so much was the mesh of their two previous rooms, with Aliyah’s bright pink and purple theme and Brayden’s aqua and orange color pallet… well, you can guess how well that all matched up.
So I set my mind to a new project (because I so need more on my plate right now, ha) that wouldn’t cost much, that would be rental home friendly (meaning no wall paint and little holes), that would move Brayden from a toddler bed to a twin size bed and that would be a wonderful living space for my two littles to love together!
Behold, a must-have for an organized room makeover process… the Inspiration Board for their shared room:
This is my process… I usually find something I like and build around that. This time it was just a color pallet, and the pallet bed. I wanted to keep things light and natural with some pops of red and yellow to make it fun. Texture is always a great way to build on light colors and it also introduces kinesthetic learning for little eyes and hands. From there I found ideas and things I liked and threw it all together in a file… that has now become the Inspiration Board I will work from.
I’ll be sharing some of the step-by-step DIY processes as I makeover the room, and also links to items I’ve bought or used.
Here’s a link to the Inspiration Board I did when we put together Brayden’s Aqua and Orange Nursery.
