Hello and happy weekday to you all :). I am thrilled to be sharing more style revamp reveals with you guys, especially when they are a long time in the making. Hope you enjoy?
Finally, revealing this big boy bedroom redo:). My little guys, Dylan, and Aidan waited ever so patiently to transition from their sweet toddler room into the only décor on their wishlist, sports, sports and did I mention sports. My hubby and I wanted to grant their wish but needed a design element and style they would grow into, and that was somewhat budget friendly.
Molding: My hubby hung all the crown molding and painted the ceiling a lighter shade, which makes a big difference.
Curtains: These lovely navy herringbone curtains, purchased at WestElm.com, add another element of color and depth to the room.
Bedding: We are reusing twin beds the boys already had and were gifts from their grandparents when they were 2 and 3. The beds are sentimental and an investment, according to grandpa:), we’ll use these beds until the boys outgrow them:). They are adorable too.
The San Francisco Giants duvet covers were our boys’ Christmas wish from Santa. (We may have helped Santa by purchasing the covers from WestElm.com and Potterybarn.com!) The color combination of gray and vibrant orange, make the room pop. We added baseballs from the boys’ baseball games to a cool distressed wire basket.
Sheets and pillows shams were on clearance at, West Elm.com. The stripes and checks added more depth and texture to the beds.
Paint: We allowed the boys to pick out their paint colors. The selection started at 12 patches on the wall, but they were able to narrow down their choices to their top 2 favs. As you could imagine, the colors were very creative, to say the least. The final result, well I will let you decide:);
- Valspar La Fonda Sombrero 2008-5B Walls
- Valspar La Fonda Copper 2008-5A Walls
- Valspar Granite Dusk 5006-1C Walls
- Valspar Comet Dusk 5006-1A Ceiling
The boys needed a desk area to do homework and work on various art projects, which they love. So we decided to convert their closet into a work station. We purchased the shelving at Lowes.com to provide space for all their stuff and used an existing desk that we bought for my hubby’s office years ago; (potterybarn.com). We wanted the boys to have a place to hang their photos, art and sports cards, so I found these galvanized steel sheets, at Lowes.com, which I hung on the back of the closet wall. It worked out great.
This piece of furniture belonged to my older son, and when he went off to college, his design style changed a bit. So the littles’ have claimed this piece as their own. It is used to store their clothes and toys.
The night stand is another old piece from Pier One Imports which my husband and I found on clearance way back when. It sits between the boys bed and holds all their books and some treasures. I purchased the orange tray at West Elm to provide a pop of color and store more treasures. I also found this darling galvanized lantern at a garage sale which I use for their bedtime readers:).
Other pieces of art that line the room are what we call big brother’s inspiration. The older boys have graduated from college and are just starting in their careers, living several hours from our home. The little boys don’t get an opportunity to see their big brother’s that often, but when they do, it is a huge deal and is talked about for weeks to follow.
I’m always trying to incorporate something special that is a reminder of their big brothers:). Both the older boys played sports and were passionate athletics. The little boys love to hear all about their big brother’s sports stories and look through all their cool stuff. Brandon aka #7 was a QB for Pop Warner. Justin aka, #61, played defensive tackle for Serra Padres. I thought it would be a neat idea to create art by using Jersey’s the boys wore and some cool newspaper articles about their games. These pieces of art are a constant reminder that their brothers are always with them and nearby.
Thank you for letting us share more Style Revamp.
