Max's Big Boy Room

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

When we moved into our new house, I decided that it was really important to me to make it into a home.  In our previous house I never really felt like the boy's rooms were completely done or the house was decorated how I really wanted.  I did have to have a little self talk and I am fully aware that making your house truly "homey" does take time (and a money tree) but I am loving the process so far.

I recently put up a little sneak peek of Max's big boy room on my Instagram.  Many of you were wondering where certain items in his room were from and basically I get distracted and forget to respond so I decided to post it all here for those who would like to know.

I wanted Max's new big boy room to be somewhat of a blank canvas.  I decided not to do a "theme" and instead let him decide what things he would want on his walls as his likes and interests evolve.  Max is really into Star Wars so the print above his bed was actually the very first piece that I purchased for his room.  He picked it out and I think it is perfect for his little space. 

Room Sources:
  • Star Wars Print: Society6
  • r2d2 Poster: aswegoArts
  • Bedspread: Pottery Barn Teen
  • Cross Pillow: Regans Brain
  • Black & White Blanket: Ikea
  • Bed: Garage sale find that we re-stained 
  • Nightstand: it was my husband's when he was a little boy and we sanded it down and re-stained it to match the bed
  • Metal M- a DIY made from a cardboard letter and metallic paint
  • Globes- thrift finds
  • Pendant Light- Home Depot
  • Dresser- Ikea Hack (DIY here)
  • White Book Shelves- Ikea 
  • Vintage School Desk- my cousin found it on Craigslist and my super talented Aunt painted it and gave it a new life for Max. 
His room is a work in progress and I am still on the hunt for the perfect pieces of fun art to hang on his walls but in the mean time he loves it and that is exactly what I was hoping for.

Super nice! I especially love the Star Wars posters! I also love how it's a boy's room but at the same time, it's not intimidating for a girl. Nice, nice, nice!

i love this. and YES, it does take time and money. i also like the room is a little simpler - i assume kids will always bring toys, books, clothing, etc. into their rooms, and his room just seems like this great space that reflects him and will allow him to grow into his own person at the same time. great job!

Love it! Thanks for sharing! Your style is great - you should consider sharing their play area. I need some good ideas on how to make you storage look good!

What a great room! I really like that as he gets older, the décor is still completely appropriate/not too little boyish. Does that make sense? Looking forward to seeing more. :)

Beautiful space! Also one that will grow with your munchkin! Well done.

Great job on Max's room! I love the school desk and bookshelf. Your DIY "M" project really turned out well for the space. Congrats! He must be so excited. : ) --Janet
