When I found out I was pregnant with my 3rd baby. I was so overwhelmed, where is she gonna sleep? Where are we gonna put her stuff? What about our little boy? He already doesn’t have a room. We discussed building on so many times, had it all planned out. But wow, have you seen the prices on treated lumber? Wow!
That’s when we started looking at other options. We had a “den” that I had turned into a playroom. I basically hated this room because I’m OCD and it was one of the first things you seen when you walked into our house, TOYS EVERYWHERE 😳
That’s when we decided we would box this room in & make a bedroom, without a closet. Just a basic toddler room! It would also gives us a hallway where I could hang so many of our family pictures up. (A year later & I’ve yet to do that 😑)
I spent SO many late nights looking at decorations for this bedroom. I wanted it to be something “toddler friendly” my little boy was only 2 at the time, now 3. But I also wanted it to be something he could grow into so I wouldn’t have to change it unless he absolutely wanted to. I went with the farmhouse theme, buffalo plaid & deers.
I also had to come up with a separate light option, I wanted something other than a shade lamp but to keep the normal light, we was gonna have to rewire so many things. It was just gonna take way to much time.
At this point you are probably thinking “he’s 2, where is his toys?” … I have to have storage for toys, they all have to be placed in there own place 🙈 I stayed on Amazon for hours trying to find stuff that matched his room furniture but was still kid friendly.
His furniture is the “Trinell” Collection from Ashley Furniture. I bought it on a sale, the real price scared me off 🙈 but it’s honestly so worth it. He can use this stuff for years & it’s so pretty!
Let’s talk wall decor … probably my favorite thing about decorating. I think it gives a bedroom so much character and what truly brings the room together. I browsed over 200 pages on Hobby Lobby for this stuff 🙈
Don’t let those prices freak you out. “Wall decor” at Hobby Lobby goes on a 50% off sale every other week . So if it’s not on sale this week, it will be next! Making something that’s regular $18 this week, $9 next week. Just keep checking back & don’t buy til’ you get the sale!
Curtains & Name? My two favorite places! Hobby Lobby & Amazon.
Bedding? I bought his quilt and sheet set from Zulily. It says “all gone now.” But I’m sure they have tons of similar ones. There stuff is good quality, mostly fast shipping & always so cute!
