Big Boy Room

We redid Jake's room this week. We converted his crib to a toddler bed about a year ago(maybe more). But he still had all his nursery stuff in the room. We decided the time was right to convert his toddler bed to a full size bed and give him a new big boy room.

To say it was a very bittersweet day would be an understatement. Surprisingly it was very emotional to take all the baby stuff out of his room. It was very sweet that he was in the room helping us some of the time.But my goodness I just can't believe how fast time goes by.

The baby room-
The Big Boy Room


  1. So impressive! Do either of you have interior decorating experience? I especially like the textured look of the turquoise paint on the bottom half of the wall (how did you do that?).

    Also - I really like that you let Jake help with the painting. :)

  2. We don't have a background in interior design, but I love it. I really enjoy coming up with how to decorate an area and transform it. For the blue paint we painted a lighter blue underneath and then a darker paint on top. While the top coat was still wet we pulled a stiff paint brush over the paint to make the lines.
