I had decals for Moon River over my daughters' cribs--"Two drifters, off too see the world/ There's such a lot of world to see". I loved it until they became toddlers and moved to big girl beds and peeled them apart one night. Grrrr.

A week after we bought our first house, our next door neighbor's had their annual "everything's a dollar" rummage sale. I scored a children's Ikea swivel chair with hood for $1. My girls use it constantly.

What's Your Best Bargain Kids' Room Find?

I live in Milwaukee, not a "deluxe" or ritzy location by any means and I have a choice of at least ten public pools within the city and its immediate suburbs, plus several smaller water/splash pad pools. And yes, some are right for our young toddlers and some pools are too big/adult.

What was the quality on the Moulin Roty toys? I've fallen in love with a few but the Amazon reviews lead me to believe they are super expensive garbage.

We were crazy broke when our first daughter was born and for her first Christmas, I spent way too much money on a Blabla baby doll for her. She was the fussiest baby ever and when she saw that doll for the first time, she laughed and smiled. Now she's almost four and still takes "Doll" everywhere with her.

I only wash my kids stuffed animals when they get thrown up on or peed on. They just don't get that dirty.

This room is adorable. If I had two little boys, I would copy all of this! As it stands, I think my two little girls would love some of your art/toy storage ideas!

Ha! I used to love this site but the out of control concern-trolling on every.single.post has really, really turned me off of it.

We buy a lot of second hand toys for our kids. They are quite young (1 and 3) so they don't know the difference yet. My older daughter loves those tiny Disney princess Polly Pocket things which run about $10 each at Target. I was able to buy an entire 100 piece lot on eBay for about $6. She was overjoyed to get so many little dolls and clothing options and had no idea that they were "used".

Actually, the closet my daughter slept in HAD an egress window and no door. It was a super old flat and the "closet" was at one point, a very tiny bedroom made for a very tiny antique bed. But thanks anyways! :)

Our daughter slept in a (very large) closet for two years until we bought our first house. It was such a cozy little space--I was actually jealous of it. She slept best in her own space, very close to us. This room is adorable and you have the best attitude about AT--it's NOT the place for parenting advice!

We have two Gulliver cribs from IKEA. Can't say enough good things about them. My 3 1/2 year old has shown no signs of wanting to move out of her crib, so it has been actively used for that long and it's still solid as a rock. Ditto for her 18 month old sister's crib. Why pay ten times as much?

We did this in our daughters' room with the lyrics from Moon River. Over one crib it says "Two drifters, off to see the world . . . " and over the other it says "There's such a lot of world to see."

OMG! A kids room that looks like actual kids live in it! Never did I think I would see it on AT in my life.

Knotty pine is ugly as sin. You did a great thing by painting over it. It looks wonderful.

One of my closest friends gave me a tin of tea-like stuff that you but on your ravaged "lady bits" to cool and comfort them after giving birth. The kind of thing only a very close friend can give you! (alas I had a c-section :()
