It’s finally done! I have been working on transforming Blake’s room into a big boy room since July, throughout all of my other projects. I think I am most excited about this room out of all of the revamping I’ve done around the house these past few months. I just want to hang out in Blake’s new pad all day long.
It all started with the chairs. Blake loved sitting in satellite chairs at my parents’ house, so when I found similar chairs, I just had to get them. I could only find the chairs in navy, and since navy didn’t match the old décor, the wheels in my head started turning for a total room makeover. Troy even agreed to let me paint the walls which is a big deal for him. I was only planning on painting one accent wall, but Troy didn’t like the look of that, so I ended up painting the whole room. Blake and his crib were temporarily moved into the guest room for a week while I painted.
My favorite addition to his room is the alphabet wall. I’ve been collecting alphabet letters for a few months and I finally finished painting them and hanging them up over the weekend.
Here are some of the other details. I mostly just repainted or added to what was already there. I used a lot of fabrics, ribbons, and papers. I also got a little orange-spray-paint-happy.
I am really excited now that we know that Blake is going to have a brother because they can eventually share this “big boy” room. I think we’ll keep them separated until their sleeping schedules are similar, but Troy is very happy that I’m not going to get pink-spray-paint-happy anytime soon.
