Like all renovations this project took twice as long as I thought it would. An ice storm resulting in 5 days without power didn't help matters. By the end we were each taking shifts with the kids and the room, tagging in when the other person when they've had enough. About 20 minutes before midnight the night before Brady's birthday we finally finished.
Brady had been sleeping in his little brother's room during the renovation so he hadn't seen the room yet. We transferred a sleeping boy into his new room, hoping that he didn't wake up completely disoriented and scared. That sounds like a great new HGTV show. "Scare the Shazam Out of Your Kid." Luckily he loved it!
This is now my favorite room in the house. I kind of want to sleep in there.
We DIY'ed the wainscoting. Remind me next time how hard that is...mmm k?
I've got plans for this corner of the room. For now his crib/changing table will do.
I painted paper mache letters of his name using a left over test pot of orange.
Bedding from Ikea. Can't beat $29.99.
Sconces flanking the bed for stories at bedtime. I built the bed the same way I built the baby's big boy bed a couple months ago. The only difference is that this time I used an old door from a prior renovation. It is upholstered in Gray Duck cloth.
So there you have it. The big boy bedroom that more than just one boy loves. Now the oldest wants a new room for his birthday. Sigh.
