A Thoughtful Place: Big Boy Room Reveal

Big Boy Room Reveal

All in good time. That is the theme around here. I am thrilled to be showing you our son’s big boy room reveal in it’s entirety. For those of you who have been along for the ride for quite some time, then you have seen the many projects along the way. The very last project was the wall behind the bed.

…………………...a big boy room

When I stumbled upon a vinyl tree decal that not only incorporated nature, but the room colors as well I was ecstatic. Even better, my son was able to help me place all the leaves and birds on the wall. As with most elements in the room, the tree also holds special meaning for us. We lost a very dear member of our family recently. The fifth bird that is mid air reminds us of the bird that flew away.

  27. Courtney,

    You always do such an amazing job. I am sure your little guy will cherish all the thought and detail that went into creating this room for him! I've been looking for those curtains. Are they curtains or fabric from IKEA? I went to my local store a few weeks back and didn't see anything...

  72. Where do I begin!? I LOVE this room! It's so bright & airy and has so many "boy" elements that are just wonderful.
    and by the way I've been searching for a new bed for my son for a bit and haven't found anything I like that's worth its pricetag. But I saw yours and followed the link thru -- while it's just as spendy as the rest of the beds I've been looking at its totally what I have been wanting to find! I screamed like no other for my husband to come up from downstairs to look at it I was so excited so THANK YOU!
    Oh and also, absolutely in love w/ your blog & design style... new follower :)

    Thank you so much for the ideas I just love it!

  75. gosh. . those are from ikea but heard they may have stopped carrying them. If you can scoop up a duvet or anything with the print from there you could make them.

    Hope that helps!

    ReplyDelete
  89. First off, Love The Room!! Two questions, where did you get the curtains? If you made them where did you find the fabric? And secondly, I'm loving the toy closet. Did you find you didn't need the closet space for your son's clothes? I don't use my son's closet for two many clothes other than button down shirts. I've been 'toying' (no pun intended) with the idea of doing something similar for quite some time. How is it working out for you?
