Big Boy Room Inspiration

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.

Larkin has that PB bedding in his crib! Minus the sheets, because I'm too cheap to spend all that money sheets that I have to change on a weekly basis. But it's really cute and will make an adorable little boy room! But why are you going to all this trouble when you are going to be moving back to Cincy really soon? :)
