So let me just say that this little bedroom has been a labor of love. I knew I wanted to do something that was more big boy than his nursery but we would have plenty of time for a sports theme or motorcycles in the future as well. I fell in love with some striped bedding from pottery barn but with my little budget that wasn't happening. I knew I wanted stripes somewhere (little did I know exactly how many stripes would actually be in the space. Ha.) So I decided to put big neutral stripes on the wall and get solid bedding.
Well the paint went up and I was in love, a week later I found a knock off of the bedding I loved so much at Target, I bought it thinking that Deakon was not going to be in the room for that long. It's meant to be a nursery and it's connected to our room. We moved him in there when we first moved so he would be close to us. Eventually he would need to move to a bigger room and I loved the bedding to much to pass on it.
I know that it's a lot of pattern, A LOT.
Although, right now though our life seems to be stuck in transition mode if that makes any sense.
Deakon might be in this room for a year or more and he might not be, so I went with it.
I tried to find pictures of loved one's we miss in Idaho, so something feels familiar for him.
As well as a collage of our past years instagram photos.
I plan on changing them out and putting them in an album when the year is done.
I re-purposed the magnet board, It was an old decoration that came from my mom's house that framed some quilting (not done by her). I loved the frame to much to give it to Goodwill.
Alyssa made the prints for the wall, they ended up being really cute.
We of course had to have some Idaho pride. :]
The little blue book shelves are spice racks from IKEA, that I painted.We are working on our ABC's so these little magnets were perfect for the wall, although when they came in the mail I had two C's and no G (annoying, and possibly confusing for Deakon). I ordered it from one of those daily deal sites online and there was no way to return it or contact the shop it originally came from. Buyer's beware.
All in all I think his little room turned out really cute, he loves it and I love doing it.
