I'm kind of excited about my first after shots! I know that "theme rooms" are sort of out. But my boys really love cars and trucks. And not just any trucks. MONSTER TRUCKS.
I have two boys (ages 2 and 4) that just started sharing a room, and I wanted it to be really special for them. A room they'd always remember.
How will they ever forget this?
This is the wall mural I painted in their new big boy room. It was based on the Tonka Monster Truck illustrations. I freehanded it (well, I used some tools like a straight edge, but no stencils). The boys just love their "cool monster truck" room.
The best part is I used all left over paints. 100% free, baby! Stay tuned for a tutorial to make your own. The shelf was a flea market find from years ago. I painted it red to match the room. Blue, green and orange frames I bought years ago from Hobby Lobby. Artwork was a gift from a friend at my baby shower.
Here they are climbing all over their big boy beds.
Bunk beds were a $50 craigsl!st find. Navy and red comforters from JC P*nney.
Sewed the valances myself. I love that old wooden dump truck. Found it at an old run down antique shop while on a drive with a friend (same friend that bought the artwork, Hi Livvy!). A great memory.
Got this wooden train at a second hand store. Plaid, navy and truck pillows from T@rget.
Like most rooms in the house, there's some final touches left to do. The boys' names will be hung in the sky on the left. A picture or two and I think that's it.
And just in case you were wondering, this is the cleanest this room has ever been. And it is already dirty.
Linking to some of these parties.
