Planning T's "Big Boy" Room

We did it. We finally agreed on and ordered all Trey's furniture, bedding and most of the accessories for his "big kid" room.

We had originially planned on a "vintage-y robot" theme but it just never came together the way I was envisioning it. Then I stumbled upon these sheets.

I love it because I've been able to find a happy mix between some sort of "theme" that Trey will find fun and some neutrals that I feel have some longevity. These sheets just called to me, I think they are still playful and child-like without being "too much". Trey has always loved choo-choo's and J.D. has a soft spot for them as well, so they are both excited!

The furniture we picked is an espresso color and has a very classic feel to it, definitely something that can grow with him. I picked touches of navy to tone down the train items as well as lots of navy gingham to give it some dimension.

We still have some art work that we need to order. I've been looking on Etsy, Land of Nod, Pinterest and haven't found anything that I am over the moon about so if anyone sees anything amazing please send it my way!

And last but not least we still haven't picked a paint color. I want something like a pretty tan or a light gray. Again, any specific paint colors that you love are more than welcomed!

I am excited for this change but I love his nursery. It's always been such a happy and cozy space. I think him turning 2 and a half next month is just really getting to me. All of these "big kid" changes are too much for this mama.... Whhhhhy do they grow so quickly?

Quite a few of the things I have purchased are on back-order but as soon as a paint color is picked and everything is here we will be working hard to switch everything over and make his new space cozy! I can't wait to share the "after" with y'all!

That is going to be adorable! I can't wait to see the finished product. For paint, I just went through this song and dance with the new house. Sherwin Williams Mindful Grey - it's seriously the perfect grey. I'm using it in our bedroom, Abby's room (with pops of pink/white, and our dining room. I LOVE it! Good luck!

This will be super adorable! Did you happen to see any sheets that are not too "theme-y" with lots of vehicles? We are going with transportation.

I loved planning my son's big boy room...we went with sailboats. He has since moved on to sports, but I saved everything so we can use it with our second son.

I can't wait to see pictures of uis room :)

I love it! That will be such a precious "big boy" room. And I'll bring you a box of Kleenex when you start to take down the nursery.

Love the plans for your son's big boy room. I'm looking forward to starting inspiration boards for my son's room soon. He's very much into trains so I love seeing some of your ideas. Can't wait to see the final pics.
