When we started buying stuff for Liam’s room, we mostly got things that went with the “vibe” of the rest of our house. Mostly muted grays and whites with dark furniture (all from Target) and maybe a navy accent here and there. Never once did it occur to me that we were supposed to have a “theme” until people started asking me what it was. “So what’s the theme of his room?” “Uhhh… Baby?” We ended up with some race car stuff, some outdoorsy stuff, some animal stuff, you name it. Though we don’t have a “theme” it all turned out so much nicer than I expected. We chose furniture that can be converted (changing table to standard dresser, crib to toddler bed, to daybed, to full bed) so he can use to for a long time (budget win!). The crib is pretty much for decoration because he sleeps with me, but I’m confident that he’ll sleep in it one day. Until then, it’s a great place to store pillows, stuffed animals, whatever else, at the moment.
We stuck a little reading nook in the corner for when he’s a little bigger. We read him bedtime stories every day and he really loves it, so I think that reading books in his little nook will be really fun for him. I made this Ruler Growth Chart (tutorial coming soon) for about $10 and I can’t wait to be able to mark his growth on it. We opted for sheer rather than blackout curtains to help prevent our little guy getting his days and nights mixed up. I got a great deal on them on Amazon (duh, everything is from Amazon).
This is the most comfortable chair of all time. I seriously would sleep in it voluntarily. It also shipped already assembled, which is a huge plus for me because my patience with little parts and pieces lasts about 15 seconds. We chose it because it has a higher back than most of the ones that we looked at, which is great for tall Daddies.
I made these little Car Prints. They were incredibly easy, took all of 10 minutes, and look precious. All I did was search for “car scale images” on Google, found ones that I liked, printed, matted, and framed them. The frames were originally tacky brass that I spray painted to match the rest of the room.
We created this collage wall all with items on sale at Hobby Lobby (HoLo is life!). We used a drawer organizer as a “garage” for toy cars and it turned out way cuter than expected. I love this little 3D bear too.
I added cubby shelves from Target for toy storage, two lamps from story time (one from Hobby Lobby, one from a garage sale that I spray painted and replaced the shade) and a vintage glass water jug to use as his “piggy bank”.
