The day has finally come! Little man’s nautical big boy room is done. So, quick like a bunny, I snapped photos while it
was is in pristine condition before it becomes messy, smelly little boy land littered with dump trucks, and race cars.
I kept the nautical vibe his room had before, but now he has an exciting big boy bed with fun bedding instead of a boring old crib.
Coincidentally, after a fall out of the aforementioned exciting big boy bed last week, complete with a trip to the ER and a mild concussion, this mom is missing the safety of the boring old crib…except for the fact that he could climb out of the crib, making it sooo not safe either…
Basically, the kid needs to stop giving me a heart attack. I almost gave the entire room a bubble wrapped makeover…don’t worry – thanks to Pinterest and a few strategically placed pool noodles tucked under his sheets – he is now snug as a bug in a rug.
Remember my hand carved wall art? I hung it over here in his little reading nook.
I wanted some extra storage and a place to display his favorite books, so I hung these crates on the wall (just screwed them into the studs). And, yes, his dinosaur rain boots are stinking adorable, and I want a pair for myself.
I love this locker I found at one of my favorite vintage stores and gave it a little spray paint makeover. Right now, it holds diapers, wipes and socks, but some day when we conquer the potty training thing it will hold his clothes.
Little man likes to accessorize so he needed a place to hang his hat collection. Although, the only hat he will wear is his beloved “moto -cyca” baseball cap…
Love this kid :)
I will be sharing a few DIY projects from his room later in the week, but I’ll quick share some of my shopping sources –
Comforter, plaid pillow -Pottery Barn Kids
Wall flags, life guard pillow, striped pillow case – Land of Nod
Bed – Ikea (although more on that soon, it wasn’t originally navy)
You can see the DIY tutorial on his rope lamp here.
I better get back to bubble wrapping, or look into sticking him into one of those bubble boy contraptions…maybe just trade in the baseball hat for a football helmet?
