Maja's chalkboard wall

A while back I posted about Maja's room and how I was making some changes.  Today I am excited to share the first section of changes I did in her room.  If you remember from my post, Maja was doing a lot of drawing on the wallpaper with her Poo! Disgusting!  In an effort to direct her creative expression somewhere more easily removable and less gross, I decided to remove the bird wallpaper and paint the entire wall in black chalkboard paint. Amazingly it only took two quarts of paint to cover the entire wall.

My children really enjoy the chalkboard wall as well.  They have had so much fun drawing on every surface of the wall.

On the right side of the wall there is a hidden pocket door that leads to our storage closet.  I love how playful it looks when my friend drew faux moulding and a knob on the door.

We also swapped out Maja's crib for my narrow twin bed that I had growing up.

The vintage Pippi Longstocking pillow I found in a darling shop in Stockholm several years back.  The amazing Wolf portrait is also hand knit by Colette Bream.  Isn't it incredible?  I love it so much, the perfect addition to her room!

Besides the Marimekko curtains, I infused some more red into the room with the bedding.  I purchased this cute Japanese strawberry fabric from an Etsy shop and sewed it into a duvet cover.

Next week I'll be heading to Stockholm, I'm so excited!  I'll have some pictures from my trip to post in the next little while.  You can also follow my adventures on Instagram, onemoremushroom.
