Ryder's Big Boy Room

After we found out that we were going to have a little girl, it was time to start on some home organization and decoration.

I knew I would never, ever be willing to paint over those dang chevron stripes in the nursery, so we decided to keep that as the baby's room, which meant it was time for...

Ryder's Big Boy Room!

We've had two guest rooms ever since we moved into this house, mainly because we really didn't have anything else in particular to do with the extra space. Therefore, we picked the larger of the two, cleared it out, and began creating a fun, personal space for Ryder to grow up in.

Since we actually have, on occasion, used both of our guest rooms at the same time, we decided on a bunk bed set for Ryder's room that has a full sized bed on the bottom. That way we can still utilize the room for guests in the future if we need to. And for now we've opted to remove the ladder to the top bunk... just to be on the safe side until he's a bit older!

I certainly wasn't willing to tackle stripes again, but I did decide to paint one accent wall in a dark navy blue color to make the room more cozy.

After that it was simply a matter of choosing some new bedding and transferring all of Ryder's stuff out of the nursery and into his new room!

Also, a huge shout out to my mom, who spent the day with me painting and assembling furniture.

We moved quite a few of Ryder's toys into his room that were previously located all over the house. Now our living areas feel super de-cluttered, and Ryder absolutely loves his new play room with all his favorite things in the same place.

So far he hasn't actually been willing to sleep in his new room (yes, we're still co-sleeping), but we're content to take things one step at time. 

And as for the nursery, we're putting on the final touches as we wait anxiously for Baby Sister to arrive.

It won't be long now, and Big Brother Ryder can hardly wait!

  1. Awe, so cute! My sister and I sharing our bunkbed made for a lot of great funny stories, that we still tell today. I bet Ryder will love his new room.


Talk to me, Goose!
