Part of becoming a big brother is getting a big boy room...or....we need the mattress out of your toddler bed for the crib so you get new furniture big boy room.We decided to get Logan bunk beds since the third bedroom was going to become the nursery and we'd loose the spare bed in there. Not to mention bunk beds are super fun and cool!
First step in the big boy room was a little paint. The color above the chair rail was his nursery color, Behr Gulf Stream blue. I loooove this color. It's the perfect blue. But, it needed a little upgrade so hubby suggested we paint a complementary color below the chair rail. He did a good job in picking Sherwin Williams Dignity blue for the lower part of the room. I have to admit I was a little skeptical when he said he wanted to paint "dark blue" under the chair rail, but it looks awesome!!!
Next, the furniture. We looked all over. You name the store, we looked. We finally decided on a set from City Mattress. It was a little more than we wanted to spend, but the quality of construction is excellent and these bunks should stand up to the abuse two little boys will most certainly throw at them. I especially like the "captains box" storage underneath. The rugby stripe quilts we picked out from Pottery Barn Teen. You can find them HERE.
These fun clip-on lights, also from Pottery Barn Teen, clip easily onto the sides of the bunk for extra reading light. It is a total cave in there at night. Logan loves the easy on/off switch for story time before bed.
The nautical accessories were recycled from his "little boy room". More on them HERE.
I am thrilled with the way the room turned out! The paint, furniture, accessories...everything!
