Before I get into it, I want to bring it back to how it looked before we started. I only have this one photo. I just stuck everything in there from the last house. And hated it. The curtains were obviously too short for the taller ceilings/windows, but I put them up anyways (Looking back I have no clue why).
Too much ugly, let's get to some pretty. I've already shared with you guys the portion of his room with his bed on it as I worked my way through the DIY's.
The bed was a Craigslist find that I reworked and painted. The moon art above his bed was a DIY. And the nightstands were a RAST hack.
And now here is the other side of the room!
Everything over here has special meaning. The dresser was his great grandmothers that I repainted years ago for Izzy's big girl room. A lot of the art was reused from his original nursery with some other pieces added in, mostly DIY's. Might be hard to see, but the photo in the bottom black frame is of my grandfather who tipped his plane on its nose during a hard landing. The antlers were found in Papa Moo Moo's barn on one of our visits. The globe was bought for his nursery and I wanted to keep it out since Sam loves looking at it to see if he can find where Grandma and Grandpa live. And the basket holds Mike's old baseball bats and glove.
I put a hanging chair in here for his because, hey, it's fun! It's also super comfy. Seriously, I could relax in that thing all day. But warning (and this shouldn't come as a surprise) kids are gonna swing the heck out of these so make sure you've got that puppy anchored into a ceiling beam and give yourself enough swinging space!
To keep his growing collection of stuffed animals from being piled up on the floor, I hung some baskets from the wall on hooks.
He loves his room. And that's all I could ask for.
