Blog for Digs: My Childhood Bedroom Was…

A few weeks ago, we told you about the Blog for Digs fundraiser event for Dwell with Dignity. Dwell with Dignity is a non-profit organization, comprised of a group of interior designers and volunteers, which creates comfortable and inspiring homes for families struggling with homelessness and poverty. Today, we are participating in the Blog for Digs blog crawl event hosted by Stonehouse Love. Participating bloggers finish the sentence “My childhood bedroom was…” and share the one decor items they wished they had as kid. Here is Dolan’s response:

My childhood bedroom was forgettable. I shared a room with my brother on the first floor of our two story brick farmhouse. The floors were hardwood and the window s were deep, with sills that could support the entirety of my childhood frame. But I spent little time sitting in those windows and most of my time outside of them. My brother and I were both allergic to the indoors. We woke quickly and dressed in seconds, eager to see what treasures were drying in the morning dew outside. My mother knew this and so she gave us chore lists that involved doing things outside; mowing, raking, trimming trees, cleaning gutters, digging ditches, mending fences. At the end of the day, when we finally dropped into bed, our eyes closed to the sound of bullfrogs in the pond, and leaves scratching the window, beckoning us to come back out and play.

Oh, and the decor item I most wish I had as a child—a tepee. Mostly because I always wanted to sleep outside.

Take a moment to stop by design box and see Melissa’s very-pink childhood bedroom. On Monday, stop by fabulous k for her response. Find a complete list of participating blogs here.

Be sure to visit Dwell with Dignity and become a member for as little as $30. Give deserving families the childhood bedrooms they’ve also wanted.
