1. if you have a problem with strong winds use a sleeper piece of wood to keep door open. nice and heavy, kids dont pick it up...and dogs dont chew on it like those stupid plastic stops. ad a rope for convience.

2. old paletes as a frame with a steel plate painted with chaulk board paint. it magnetic and nice and handy in the kitchen for messages etc. i used a set of old spoons that we never used...but you can what ever you want.

Thank you pursekeys for the info on the chairs! I love the Windsor type back on them. We have some of the same type of spring rocking chairs made of iron and love them for their comfort, durability, and beauty. But ours have a squared back with a knob on either side. I can't tell you how many times I have bent over and nearly knocked myself in the head on one of those knobs! Thank you again!

My thing is, don't all of these rooms seem a little dated?! They don't seem to be displaying any trends in kids rooms today. Beside, like any have said it almost too much. Kids change their likes and dislikes so often it would be insane to go this "all out"! I also agree with another comment is this seems more for the delight of the adult and borderline "shoving it down a kids throat. Just my opinion and isn't that what this comments section is for?!

When my girls were little, I painted a garden mural on two walls with their bunk beds incorporated into it by making the supports and guard rails into posts and fences with vines weaving through them. In the boys' room I painted a mural of a train trestle/mountain scene and my husband mounted a model train track on a door which was on hinges and could be hooked flat against the wall. When set in the open position, the mural was the backdrop landscape for the train set. Their bureau I covered in Thomas the Tank Engine characters. It was fun to create, they had fun for years, and when they got older, they repainted the rooms themselves. The girls, by the way, chose neon pink walls, a black floor and white ceiling with black and white checkered curtains and a pink shag area rug. It was bright (!) but awfully cute and their own design and creation. Oh - and their friends without exception admired their rooms and had fun in them.

Funny how we don't think it strange to go "all out" for a dinner party lasting one night, or Christmas, lasting a few weeks or less... Children are with us for such a short time in the scheme of things, that making the extra effort to give them a special space and special memories seems like a no brainer to me.
