the making of a boy bedroom

OK, folks, here it is. As previously promised, the "stuff" I have been hoarding for the baby's room.

But 1st. May I have the privilege of making an introduction. I feel I am safe to announce, since my husband has allowed me to purchase a wall decal with his name on it, our baby boy's name. So, because it is forever etched in orange vinyl, and my husband is freely using the name when referring to our son....Without further ado.


Rigg Allen Chastain's room.



this gives you a great view of all the junk I have been collecting
for Riggs room. It is slowly filling up my office.

These are the paint colors. The whole room will be taupe. I will then add a large
orange stripe about eye level. Inside the orange stripe we will
paint a small chocolate brown stripe.
Here is a stop sign (left over from my father's college years) and
some other cool signage.
We have also been tracking down some fun vintage license plates.

This is a cool sign I found along with a motor oil
can that has been turned into a trash can...Nifty!

Because I call Andy, Captain, I got Rigg a shirt so he can be a Captain too.
Andy and I think Rigg will be captain of the JV team since
his daddy is clearly the choice for varsity...I mean have you seen him
last is the bedding...rumpled and in need of ironing, but here it is!
I am planning on making a couple of big floor pillows, as well as get some fun colored canvas totes to hold things on the changing table. Along with the wall decal (that should be here any day!) and a few odds and ends. We are almost ready to put the room together. I will post more pictures when we finally get that going. What do you think?

Cute, cute, cute!! And I happen to remember my teenage boys having bedrooms that looked just like your first picture!! That was at the point in life that we picked our battles and the room just didn't seem to be one of them! (But I'm happy to report now that they have wives their rooms look great again so don't worry, it's only a phase!)

You are so incredibly creative. I would NEVER have thought of putting that together, but it is such an excellent boys room. Could you come over and decorate my house when you have time?

I'm so impressed. I am just hoping to get our nursery painted a tan color of some sort before our baby arrives in August. And maybe hang stuff on the walls, if I ever get it painted! I can't wait to see the end results!
