Thank you to CSN Stores for participating in the Bloggy Birthday Blowout Event on Goodie Goodie Gumdrops!
With Nate's second birthday just one week away, I've been thinking about a room makeover. Soon enough, we'll be trading the nursery for a big-boy room. *sniff, sniff* I want to keep his nautical theme but upgrade the furniture so it's fit for an older child. And there's one place I can find everything I'll need: CSN Stores!
Have you heard about CSN Stores yet? Let me give you the skinny. They have a network of over 200 online stores where you can find everything from dinnerware and dog beds to tools and treadmills. With such an incredible selection, it's impossible not to find exactly what you want or need! I've had the pleasure of working with CSN Stores on several occasions in the past and it has always been a positive experience. So, I'm happy to report that that they've selected me to be a CSN Preferred Blogger! What does this mean? I'll be bringing you even more awesome reviews and giveaways from this great company!
Without further ado, here is my wish list for Nate's big-boy room:
The KidKraft Boat Toddler Bed (ARV $214.95) is just perfect for any little sailor. I've been eying this bed ever since I found out I was having a boy. I love the porthole accents on the safety rails and the storage compartment on the bow for sheets/blankets. The Canwood Furniture 4-Drawer Chest in Natural (ARV $195.95) complements the whole unfinished wood theme. It's very simple but I could dress it up by adding some nautical knobs or vinyl decals on the sides. They also have a matching night table!
KidKraft Sling Bookcase (ARV $29.95) and Early Childhood Resources 3-Tier Storage Rack (ARV $99). I love that the bookcase is compact and allows the covers of the books to be seen and the toy rack's open design means toys won't fall to the bottom of a huge box and be forgotten.
Guidecraft Art Table in Red (ARV $92.40) but I also like the Little Tikes Americana Table and Chairs Set (ARV $44.99) because it is lightweight and comes with two chairs to encourage group play.
Cloud B Twilight Turtle (ARV $30), which would display constellations and help soothe him to sleep in his new space. The Plan Toys Palomino Rocking Horse (ARV $76.50) is just stunning and I love the splashes of color. I'm sure it's a fun ride too!
I hope to be able to review some of the items above in the future when we finally make the transition. But for now, I get to share something special with you in honor of our Bloggy Birthday Blowout Event...
