Anyone else completely obsessed with watching the Olympics and accomplishing absolutely nothing beyond being glued to the tv? My little girl and I are all about gymnastics and beach volleyball and we have been staying up way too late! Basically my daughter tries to reenact all the gymnastics moves on my bed while I try to avoid being kicked in the face. I’m not sure which of us is in more danger of breaking a limb at this point…
While I chug coffee (and watch Olympics) I’m sharing a few quick changes we made in my little man’s nautical boy room.
Here is the before just for reference –
Now that he is 5 (sob), we decided it was safe to turn the bed away from the wall which gives him a little more floor space to play trains in here. His contribution to the room was picking out his new Paw Patrol sheets which are safely hidden under his blankets, making us both happy.
The stuff we had on the wall didn’t work with the new arrangement and was feeling a little busy anyway. Luckily I scored this cool vintage floaty ring thing (totally blanking on what these are called!) at the Allegan Antique Flea Market. The guy I bought it from said it was off a boat in the Upper Peninsula, so I thought that was pretty cool. Little man’s favorite color is orange so he was all about it too.
I stole a few pillows from the playroom to update the bed and also found this star blanket at Target on sale after the 4th of July. I realize I was in such a hurry to quick snap this room that I didn’t actually style these shelves, this is all him. Who doesn’t need a wire basket full of transformers and a batman piggy bank? Also could his preschool wood sculpture next to that piggy bank be any cuter!?
These were the framed prints that were above his bed and I swapped them over to his little desk wall. Quick tip – these are actually gift bags that I framed using leftover scrap wood find the tutorial here.
The “boats” sign is another flea market find that found it’s way in here.
That’s it, just a few new items plus shopping my house and his room has a whole new feel. Ok I have to return all of my attention to team USA and swimming, which clearly is more important than the laundry pile threatening to overtake our house…
PS – I know I have been blogging at a much slower pace this summer, but give me a few more weeks and I have so many projects coming up I’m not even sure how I’m going to fit it all in! I can’t wait to share some BIG news with you all, so stay tuned…
