Big Boy Room Reveal!

I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving!  I'm probably off Black Friday shopping right now, but I thought I'd share a few pictures of Wyatt's finished room!  It took me so long to finish setting it up because I did several of the projects myself.

If you remember from a few months ago, I was trying to decide between a car theme or a construction zone theme.  I ended up ordering the construction zone bedding because I liked the colors better - it went better with the yellow walls so I didn't have to repaint, and Wyatt loves trucks!  

But the more I thought about it, the more I decided I didn't want to do a specific theme - Wyatt is into so many things right now.  Animals, cars, tractors, airplanes, trucks - he likes all of that.  So instead of a particular theme I just did a miss mash of things that I know Wyatt likes.  I really like the way it turned out, and I'm glad we kept the yellow walls because his room is so bright and cheerful!

The projects I did for his room:

-Derek and I got an old sewing table at the thrift store for six dollars, and I repainted it to turn it into a nightstand.  The nightstand was going to be tricky because the bed is so tall, so I was glad we found something that would work - and overall it only cost me $15!


-Obviously I made the felt circle banner, which I posted about earlier this week:

 -I also just hung a string with mini clothes pins so We could hang some of Wyatt's art work in his room.  I cut out the letters of his name to hang too.  I think it will be fun to add some of his masterpieces to the string as he makes them!

-The biggest project was the plaques I made to hang on his wall!  I am really happy with the way they turned out.  I might post a little tutorial on how I did them soon, so stay tuned.


I bought:

-New bedding from Amazon.

-The book shelf and storage cubes from Target

Everything else I already had!

It was a bit of a process moving Wyatt into his new room - my little guy is not a big fan of change.  But he's to the point now where he'll go down in there pretty easily for naps, and with only a little work at night.  

I was going to get him a step stool so he could climb up in to bed - but WYatt can actually climb up there pretty well all by himself, and he has no trouble getting down either!  I was also going to get a guard rail since the bed is so high, but I didn't have one ordered yet when we moved him in there - so I just put a bunch of pillows on the floor and a couple pillows on the edge of the bed as a barrier - and Wyatt has had no trouble rolling off yet, so I think I'm going to hold off on buying the rail.

As far as whether he likes the room - he loves his truck bedding!  He always wants to lay on his "truck pillow" - the other pillows will not do.  He was also really excited about the plaques I made for his wall - he was watching me paint them and couldn't stop chattering about the car and trucks!  I think he likes it, he's just getting used to the big switch.  I'm glad I included so many things that he likes, because I think it makes him feel more comfortable in there to be surrounded by so much fun stuff!

Looks great! Good job on the side table. I have about 3 pieces of furniture that I want to refinish right now, but with the Holidays and having an infant I can't find the time! Makes me sad because it's totally something I LOVE to do:)
