The room is done and the 6 year old LOVES it. Success.
I found this industrial looking desk and shelf set at Overstock. My plan for not getting traditional kids furniture is that I want these pieces will grow with him. The shades are blackout roman shades from Pottery Barn. I don't like to pay PB prices but seriously those things are worth it.
Sean had the awesome idea to turn one of Matthew's little league pictures into a wrapped canvas.
Love how it turned out.
Matthew is a huge Phillies fan. The ball was signed by the now Phillies Manager Ryne Sandberg, given to my dad when he (Sandberg, not my dad) played 2nd base for the Chicago Cubs. At some point a golden doodle added some decorative teeth marks.
I added the Ikea baskets at the top to fill the unused space (and to bring some Phillies red into the room). The wire baskets (Home Goods) at the bottom hold his hockey skates and gear.
Hockey gear doubling as décor.
Minor league baseball hats.
Vintage looking hockey photos from Etsy.
A 5' Fathead decal of Citizens Bank Park over his bed. Really easy to install and is moveable.
Opposite the bed wall we hung a vintage looking scoreboard made of canvas. We may swap the Fathead with this down the road.
I got a set of 2 metal chairs from Target. One for the 6 year old and one for the lucky parent helping with homework.
Pinstriped duvet and Phillies red quilt and shams add to the baseball feel.
When I bought the red desk chairs I got $20 free from Target so I picked this up, basically for free.
We used the same strategy for the room reveal as we did for Brady. We tucked him in a spare bed and then worked until it was done. Then we transferred a sleeping kid into his new room. The awe when they wake up in their new digs makes that late night worth it :)
