Meet the Sullivans: Owen's Christmas Room

Owen's Christmas Room

I had big plans for this Christmas season! I wanted to have Owen's room decorated for Christmas by the week after Thanksgiving -- what was I thinking?! Unfortunately life got in the way and I still haven't quite gotten it to the point where I'm happy with it, but I want to show off the few little bits that I spent time on before I take them down next week.

I tried my best to buy very little new decor to add to his room, and instead used some of the Christmas stuff we already had. I did pick up a few small items at Target though!

My favorite thing in his room this year was his little tree with the fair aisle tree skirt. The tree itself is so tiny that it couldn't really hold more than one ornament at a time, but it did it's job of brightening the room with its Christmas warmth! When I turn it on Owen says "Oooo, prrrrity!"

I picked up a couple of these yarn wreaths at a garage sale last month for $1 each and added the little poinsettias that I already had. 

**Let me excuse the quality of these photos by blaming the ugly lighting on the yellow walls. The color isn't this yellowy in person, it just really comes out in pictures. And it makes all the photos look kind of shaded and too warm. Sorry about that!**

Those cute Christmas sheets from Pottery Barn Kids are what started me on the whole idea of giving his room a little yule tide makeover. 

I also added the beautiful canvas print that was given to us by the nice people at Easy Canvas Prints. The photo is my favorite one of the three of us from our most recent family shoot in October. It is also the photo we used on our Christmas card this year.

Styling selves is actually a little challenging. You have to find the right balance (something I haven't totally mastered), and I love how the print helped complete the look I was going for on the shelves. Since I already had that cute picture in a frame I knew I didn't want to have our family picture in a frame too, so the print was a great alternative.

After the craziness of the season is behind us I'm planning to create a little gallery wall in our bedroom, and of course I will incorporate the print in it! I'm so glad we have another way to display the sweet photo in our home all year round! 

Now a little bit about the print itself: The 8x10 print they sent me is very high quality. The frame it is on is sturdy, but not too heavy that it will be difficult to hang. There is also a bracket affixed to the canvas for easy hanging. Easy Canvas Prints website is so easy to use. You can even upload photos from your Instagram account to use on your prints. 

The sweet people at Easy Canvas Prints sent me this print in exchange for sharing my honest and genuine review of their product with you. They also wanted me to include a discount for you too all use if you'd like to purchase one of your own! Use the code 50FREESHIP to get 50% OFF a canvas print and free shipping! That's a great deal!

So cute. I'm so sad that those sheets from PB Kids are sold out. I tried to order them a few days ago, and they were gone :(
