Now, that Brady is officially a big boy and has already transitioned out of his crib (well, technically he's still in it, but using it as a toddler bed) I need to start making plans for his big boy room. We plan on moving all the nursery furniture into the new nursery for the baby, leaving Brady empty handed :) Not really though. We already have a twin sized mattress/box springs for him and my childhood dresser, which is in very good condition - but I want to paint it. I also found a cheap headboard for the bed at a consignment sale for $20 over a year ago. Rob was not too happy with me when I showed up with that purchase, but I think he will be happy now that it will finally get used. I want to paint it a fun color as well.
We already have crown molding and a chair rail installed in the room. I definitely want to change the paint colors. I'm so over the brown/blue combo that is currently there. I've heard good things about the new paintable beadboard wallpaper so I'm thinking I might give that a try. And after installing real beadboard in our master bath I have to say, I have NO desire to ever work with it again :)
I need to hurry up and get busy on this little project because I know once we find out the sex of this new baby on November 1st I won't be able to pull myself away from that room.
