Oh Target, How I Love Thee

Good Monday morning! I shared some details of my son’s mini room makeover a couple of weeks ago and I’m happy to say I have reached a stopping point – meaning I’ve done all it makes sense to do in a room of a house we very likely may be listing on the market soon. The final steps of his mini room makeover included painting his bookcase the same Sherwin Williams Organic Green as his nightstand, adding some fun new accessories as well as repainting a few old accessories, and organizing and rearranging until I basically passed out. It’s amazing how good the act of decluttering feels. See below for some peeks at his bookcase.


I also shared with you a couple of weeks ago my slight obsession with Target’s Pillowfort line. I thought I had cleared their shelves of the items I wanted for this room redesign, but lo and behold, the bear head came back in stock! And after that I discovered a set of sheets I hadn’t seen before and then came to the decision that he needed yet another fleece blanket in his room because three’s just not enough, especially with summer right around the corner. So you probably get the point. Basically I found myself spending way too large a sum of money at my beloved Target yet again. I’m telling you that 5% off with the Red Card that doesn’t sound like much at all can actually pay your utility bills when you frequent Target as much as I do. I realize I probably shouldn’t be proud of that.

The main thing I love about the Pillowfort line is that it’s fun, with a capital F.U.N. Each item gives off a hint of whimsy and what child’s room doesn’t need some of that? There actually are different “collections” within the Pillowfort line, but the great thing about this line is that you can mix and match items from the different collections and the turnout is still amazing. I’ve compiled my favorite nine below.

As for that bear head, it’s cute right? I debated buying it for so long that it became temporarily unavailable – probably a sign I should’ve acknowledged – but it recently reappeared at my local Target and I snagged it up. I’m not one for having animal heads on my walls (hence the debate I had in my head for entirely too long) but when they’re that cute and that fake you gotta give in a little, am I right?


It may be a while until this project is 100% complete but I promise to share all the details when it is. In the meantime, if you ever find yourself filling your Target cart with Pillowfort goodies, I’d love to hear what you snagged 🙂

Wishing everyone a great week ahead!
