While we are FAR from completely moved in I have finished up the Boys’ room and I’m so excited to share it! D requested a “Pirate Room” and we’ve used it as an incentive to try and get him to sleep in his own bed at the new house.
As much as I would have LOVED to buy him one of these fancy pirate beds like he wanted it just wasn’t in the budget and he has a perfectly good bed so we are working with what we’ve got.
Since we are renting I couldn’t paint or make major changes so I had to work with what was already there. I LOVE the way the room turned out. I made it unapologetically pirate for D while weaving a few Peter Pan references in for added whimsy.
Since we couldn’t buy him a pirate bed I splurged on this Little Tikes 4 Piece Pirates Toddler Bedding Set. I think it really helped to make the theme more evident and cohesive. It was definitely a luxury purchase since we have TONS of bedding already but I don’t regret the purchase since it made him so happy.
K is still sleeping in his Graco Pack N Play. I thought about trying to make a pirate cover for the top or something but who has time for that? Besides, he probably won’t be in it much longer. When he starts climbing out I’ll get him a matching bed or move D up to a twin and give him the toddler bed.
D’s favorite part of the room is probably the pirate flag and it was a bargain Amazon buy.
The curtains and curtain rod both came from Target. I like how the curtains coordinate with the bedding and give the room a nautical feel.
I put their wood toy box by the window to double as a window seat. They both love sitting there and looking out the window. I love that they have a view of the lake!
My favorite part of the room is this sign over the dresser that says “Little boys should never be sent to bed. They always wake up a day older.” I ordered it from Etsy from seller Shiprock. It was one of the most reasonably priced wall pieces I could find and I LOVE the rustic feel the wood edges give the room! I still need to paint the wood initial letters red and hang them next to it but I just haven’t gotten around to it yet with the chaos of moving.
Another favorite is this pirate ship framed picture with a paraphrased psalm on it. I couldn’t find one that was exactly what I wanted so I made my own. You can download the print for free here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1J7tDsKGrvaiQAep_bpsKgM7dod5Ha3Zc
I rotate the boys’ books so they are frequently changed out on this Tot Tutors Book Rack Shelf. I prefer this style book shelf because I find my boys pick out books more often when they can see the covers.
I hung their growth chart over the book shelf in an attempt to keep them from playing with it. I bought it when D was a baby for his first birthday so it’s not *quite* on theme but I think it works.
The final touch was thisSun And Star Lighting Lamp I bought on a lightning deal. The boys love their starry bedroom ceiling at night.
Overall, I’m thrilled with how their room turned out! I tried not to make it too babyish so it can grow with them for awhile. Let me know what you think in the comments!
