Big Boy Room!

Our son will be 4 this year, and it was time to create a big boy room that will grow with him. Our primary reason for the room redo was desperate need of toy organization as well as a big boy bed that functions in a small space. The room started as a blank slate, as the only thing we did in the nursery was paint. My husband built DIY built-in shelves (that will soon be cabinets, doors need to be placed on the upper and lower shelves) as well as board and batten. We used a rich navy on the upper half, white for all woodwork. I wanted to keep the theme as something my son loves (transportation: cars, trucks, planes, etc.) but also wanted to be able to change out accessories at any time as he grows and his interests change. The room now is full of storage options. We chose a loft bed to maximize the floor space below, it is the perfect movie nook and play area. best of all, our son LOVES his big boy room.

    Nice work Emily - how big is this room? Looks like you did alot with minimal space. I always like a small ledge around the room...especially for boys...great place to "park" cars or place trophies and awards. I'm looking at doing something right now for my own little guy...who is going on 4

    Well done...As he gets older I'm sure he will have more input into what he wants. This room will be haven for years to come.
