My Kids Rooms// The Mango Mermaid{{+Giveaway}}

Just when I think I'm done decorating my kids rooms I stumble across something(s) that I know would perfectly complete each room.

For instance, Marcus' room now looks like this...

Whereas before it looked like this...
See the newest addition?

While the change is ever so subtle those sail flags have totally completed the room. I've been on the hunt for something to put on the frame of the bed for the longest time, but to no avail. When I spotted these custom sail flags from The Mango Mermaid I knew they just had to be placed in Marcus' nautical room.
The flags actually spell out 'M-A-R-C-U-S-'. Before adding the flags to the room I honestly had no idea each individual flag was a letter, I just loved how they looked.

I'm tempted to add other custom sail flags from The Mango Mermaid to other areas of our home. Because, nautical. And, I'm obsessed.
Here are just a few samples of what can be done with with flags:

Top right: H-O-M-E
Bottom left: these would make the cutest gifts for a nautical loving friend of family member
Bottom right: S-E-A
The options are literally endless.
Naturally I couldn't buy something for Marcus and not see if there wasn't something from The Mango Mermaid that would tie M²'s room together. Lo and behold, I found this beauty:
This will transition nicely from a headband holder to a necklace holder as M² gets older.
With a little correspondence with Stephanie, the creator of all The Mango Mermaid goodies, she is going to give the wood a white washed look and the knobs will be brushed with some gold.  The PERFECT place to store all the little headbands I plan to put on M²'s sweet little head.

I can't help myself. Here are just a few more sneak peek's from M²'s room.
Eep! Her room is really coming together. I'm just waiting on curtains and a baby, and then room will be finished.

I won't lie. I kind of love my kids rooms and all the little personal touches that makes each room unique. Now, I just wish I knew what to do with my room (my kids rooms are so much cooler than mine).

Stephanie at The Mango Mermaid has so kindly agreed to giveaway $10 to her store for custom sail flags (but don't be afraid to check out all of her other awesome goodies; along with the flags and headband holder I have a few anchors of hers as well as a tic tac toe board made from drift wood)! Flags can be made in 3x3" squares or 5.5x5.5" squares (I had M-A-R-C-U-S done in 5.5x5.5" squares). Be sure to enter below!

  1. I had no idea flags stood for letters either. How cool!

  2. Spied that butterfly 'mobile' a week ago somewhere and knew immediately *if* there was a girl I'd be buying that for sure! Love the pink and gold!

  3. I love the flags! And your kids rooms are seriously SO COOL! Did you make that butterfly mobile? I can't wait to see the rest of M2's room!

  4. I also had no idea they were letters. That is awesome. Her room EEEKKKK!!!!! I can't wait for the big reveal.

  5. Oh my gosh... M2's room! LOVE!!!!
    Also, did you know that the flags stood for Marcus when you got them? The way you wrote it made it sound like it was a happy coincidence (because if so, thats amazing!!!) but I may have read it wrong. Either way, I love them and love the way they complete his room!

  6. great rooms, I love them, and I love that the flags spell Marcus!
