From Nursery to Big Boy Room

Well - my baby boy, isn't much of a baby boy anymore. In fact, he's growing up faster than I ever could have imagined. On Friday he received his "advanced white" belt in Tae Kwon Do.

And in just over a week, he'll be starting kindergarten - how is that possible?

What isn't working - is that his room, is still his nursery theme. Sure, we've added bunk beds (his sister, despite having her own room - sleeps on the top bunk in his... they are so stinkin' cute.)

I really want to his bedroom to be finished before he starts school. And as luck would have it, my husband is taking the kids camping labor day weekend and they'll be gone for 4 and a half days... leaving me to transform his room.

My inspiration is coming from this quilt:

It suits his personality perfectly - he loves sports. I didn't want to go with decor that was specific to a single sport or a single team... he's 4, let's face it, his tastes are going to change. So the mix of 4 sports, without team affiliation is perfect.

I've fabric in the dryer for new valances and a little surprise I've got planned for his bunk bed. The paint has been bought. I've got the artwork ready to fire up the Cricut to create some fun personal touches:

Hopefully - I'll keep up with the progress here. Fingers crossed.


  1. Wow... looks like you have your work cut out for you! Can't wait to see the end result. Does he know his bedroom is getting a facelift or is it a surprise?

  2. My little guy starts kindergarten on Monday and soccer in two weeks. It's crazy how fast they grow up! Good to see you blogging again. I can't wait to see how the new room turns out!

  3. Hey Maggie, I can so relate. My little boy is no longer little anymore either. He started pre-k, this week, and he also started Tae Kwon Do along with me, lol. My oldest two are almost black belts, lol. He was literally still in my tummy when they started, CRAZY!!

    They grow so fast, but you already know that!! How luck you are to have an entire weekend to work on that room. Should turn out super great!! YAY for the big boy, so sweet!

    p.s. If you get a chance I'm inviting you over to my blog, I'm kinda having a HUGE giveaway going on, and you MIGHT like it, (or LOVE it). I'd be so happy to have your support!
