Toddler to Big Boy Room full of DIY details!

Ive been blessed with girls so when it comes to decorating or anything related to boys, I’m clueless but that doesn’t stop me from loving a great boy’s room before and after makeover. I love this one from Hi SugarplumEspecially when it involves creative ideas, repurposing and DIY.  Here are some of her photos but be sure to head over to check out the full reveal and all of the details here


It seems like only yesterday I was decorating my son’s nursery, but now he’s 9 and it was time to kiss the ‘sweetness’ good-bye. So while he was visiting his grandparents for two weeks, we surprised him with a room makeover suitable for a big guy. And the best part is, by using items from our house, updating his existing stuff, and shopping smart….the total bill for the room came to under $300!



Pale lime walls, puppy dog patchwork bedding, pictures he made as a toddler, Crystal Light carpet stains

And the awesome afters:

The bed was spray painted high-gloss white. The small Ikea sisal rug was borrowed from the laundry room and adds some warmer tones as well as texture. The over sized wall clock is from Marshalls.


Love the stripes!

DIY – cover a corkboard with burlap to add texture.



DIY – soup can pencils holders


Organized study area…


Gallery wall with room to grow and DIY prints from the zoo.


DIY cork map (A project on my list too – just waiting for the map to arrive.  Great minds DIY alike!)A


Awesome job, Cassie (proven by his happy reaction at the reveal)!  Loved that!  Thanks so much for sharing your hard work.  You created a fun big boy room – so creative with your budget.  Great job!
