Should I redecorate the Toy Room?

Dolls weren't included in the original Toy Room. If you don't believe me, just ask C-Bear! He'd never touch girlie stuff. Even My Little Pony was too girlie for him. But I loved them, and, slowly, the doll corner grew.

A porcelain doll. Rubber dolls. A wind up crawling doll. A Nancy Ann Storybook See Saw Majorie Daw (sis had one like it). A Nancy Ann Storybook Little Red Riding Hood (like the one I had). A boy football doll. Baby squeaky dolls. And, of course, a doll from my m-i-l.

Feel free to take a silent tour around the rest of the room, then tell me. Should I redecorate it for the older C-Bear or let him sleep on the couch?


  1. I don't remember how old C-Bear is. But, I'd say change can be fun and exciting. Box up the stuff for now and have fun making a new room that both you and the boy can appreciate. Maybe a bunch of old atheletic equipment/balls/hunting stuff? What does he like? College memorabilia? 50's room? Texas stuff? I bet you can maintain a cool look while appeasing him. How often does he visit? Get him off that couch! (I love the chairs on the wall, and the white dresser rocks)

  2. A re-do of the spare room might be
    a good opportunity to expand your
    love of southwestern arts and findings.
    Think of all the colors you could
    indulge in. Your grandson doesn't
    come that often. Unleash your
    decorating passion and your creative

  3. Two for redecorating, none against. Guess I will do it. We already have one western guest room so I'll have to think of something else. I'll miss my circus tent!

  4. By the way, I said 50's when I meant 70's. Showing my age! I love the bones of the room. The bed is kick booty. You have good structure already. It's just a matter of going a different direction for the man-child. Can't wait to see what you do. ~Mindy

Your opinion doesn't count, but I'd like to know what it is anyway! Please leave a comment!
