Progress is coming along on a big boy room for our three year old. Although my original plans have been altered a little along the way, I am loving the way it is coming along. I set out to create a space that was a great mix of beauty, masculinity and of course a fun place to play. We still have a refinished dresser in progress and a few fun final touches that we hope to finish with soon. Until then, enjoy some of the pretty small details.
I was originally going for this railroad crossing lamp from Pottery Barn Kids, but just couldn’t justify the cost. I picked up this navy and gold beauty from Homegoods for $34.00 and it’s beautiful while still being masculine and mixes well with the cute table hardware, that M refers to as cupcakes. The cupcake hardware was also found at Homegoods and will also adorn his gray dresser mixed with other gold hardware.
I found these industrial wire baskets at homegoods and thought they would be the perfect size for books and puzzles. I was originally going to paint IKEA spice racks, but at just $12.00 a piece, two of these cost about the same and I feel, will hold more.
These prints, I love! They were another Homegoods find at only $16.00 a piece. I will admit, it’s a little feminine, but the message holds true for a boy, mr M will be reminded everyday of just how awesome he is!
These were shown in a previous post, but they were a cheap and easy DIY project!
So far our budget for his room has been on point and we have spent a little over $100.00 total. With just a few loose ends to tie up, we will have this toddler room done and ready for M to move into well before baby arrives!
