KJ's Big Boy Room








I finally finished KJ's big boy room and he could not be more excited. We kept the same wall color, dresser, and rug, but everything else has been reworked and added. The bookshelf was once in our room, the mirror is freshly painted, the shade was once our old Pottery Barn duvet cover. I found the bed at a local antique shop and painted it Benjamin Moore Hale Blue. The frame behind the bed may be my favorite piece. It was made by Kiwi Wood Works and Design and I am smitten. I am now deciding whether to add a photo or design a special print. The last image has the fabric that I am thinking about making the pillow out of. It has a touch of every color and my son loves it.

Bedding: Ikea
Rug: Pottery Barn Kids
Basket under bed: Home Goods
Gallery Wall: more info here.
Chair, bed, dresser, side table: Vintage
white frames: ikea Ribba
Frame behind bed:
Kiwi Wood Works and Design

From here on out for the next two weeks everything had been guest blogged or pre-posted. I am hoping to still enjoy all your blogs daily but commenting may just not happen right now. Kellen has been my editor and he can not possibly edit every comment I have till I am fully off the meds. Hope you all understand. I am one loopy lady lately.

There are so many beautiful things to look at in this room! How fun! I love the valance, the pillow fabric, the bed (we just found one like this for Liam's room), the colors....so nice! I'm sure he loves it. Hope you are well.

Great job Paula!! It amazes me how you accomplish so much. I hope you're resting comfortably and being pampered like nobody's business :) You deserve it!

Just wanted to let you know I bought a similar spindle bed for my sons's room a few weeks ago and have been trying to find the right dark blue to paint it. I was hesitant to go through with it because I didn't know exactly what it would look like - but after seeing your bed I think I am off to the hardware store today to grab the perfect shade :)


Thanks AGAIN for the inspiration.
