Big boy room

In celebration of Luke giving up his pacifiers, we finished converting his room to a big boy room. We moved out his nursery furniture and moved in the furniture that used to be in Jason's bedroom when he was little. It's nearly done and the last few touches will take a while, so I thought I'd go ahead and share.

I found this sign at a garage sale.

This is his growth chart that I ordered over a year ago but am just now hanging up. He loves to be measured in front of it!

This pole in the corner is a heavy duty cardboard role from the middle of a carpet roll, and has been covered in contact paper. There are hooks going up it, to hang stuffed animals, hats, etc off of. (Right now only 2 things are hanging on it.) My brother, sister, and I each had one of these in our rooms when we were younger. This is actually the exact one from my brother's room.

The car on the wall at the head of the bed used to hang on Jason's wall when he was little. I made the prints on the long wall.

The reading corner. I am one IKEA shelf short for my book shelves. Once I get the last one it will be painted green. The toy box under the window was one that used to hold my sister and I's dress up clothes. The little table in the middle of the room is his lego/car table.

The truck coat hanger thing was also from Jason's old room. The wooden tractor and car pieces on top of the desk were as well.

Also, if you blow up this picture big enough you can see Luke's artwork hanging on his desk. It has a tree, grass, sun, etc that Grandma drew. Luke is responsible for the big blob in the middle. He says it's a dinosaur. :)

And that's his room tour! This room has been my favorite room in our house. I loved it as a nursery and love it as a big boy room!

One more thing ... this won't be staying in here permanently, but I recently got it at a consignment sale and he loves playing on it.
