Y’all. I am SO excited that Boy Mom Madness is finally here!
To recap, Boy Mom Madness is something I started working on before the holidays and I can’t wait for you to be COMPLETELY inspired! Seriously, if you are a boy mom you are going to be rocked this week because 15 bloggers with 36 boys will be weighing in on what makes their boy mom world tick. And if you are a girl mom, that’s cool too because everything you see will rock anyone’s world! Be sure to click on the links below to see all of the other rooms!
Today I am sharing Mr. Big Stuff’s (MBS) room. MBS is our threenager and he makes our family awesome. He makes me laugh out loud at least once a day, but actually usually more like ten. I honestly am a terrible blogger seeing as how I technically pulled this room together about a year ago before the baby was born. Along the way, I shared many of the DIYs but as I was putting this Boy-Mom Madness campaign together, it occurred to me that I have never actually shared the whole room in one post.
OK. I am feeling kind of wordy so I guess I better get on with the show!
And without further ado, here we go!
First up, I painted some navy and white striped walls. This room was previously the guest room and we started with a solid navy wall. However, it felt heavy and dark. Nothing a couple bright white stripes can’t help to really brighten things up! The campaign nightstand was a thrift store find that I painted white. The Coca-Cola tray is a mandatory item around these parts and I love it for corralling books in his room.
Moving on… the rug is from Mohawk, the navy chair is a thrift store find, the framed flag was my husband’s grandmothers. The bedding is a hodge podge of patterns and textures- Ralph Lauren velvet navy pillows, Pottery Barn madras comforter and Mickey Mouse sheets. Hey why not?
The bed, dresser and chest were hand-me-downs from my mother in law. What started as old boring plain furniture is now young and fun. I love the dapper two toned gray and green and think the little guy will be able to grow into it for years to come. I also love that it was free.
