Time to get rid of the crib and get him a big boy bed. Welcome bunk beds. Welcome a chance at re-decorating the room! This room seriously needed an update. It was the same as it had been since we were pregnant with Beckett.
Check out the before:
Now, feast on the after:
The boys are super-thrilled about their new bunk beds! I figured a sports theme could last
awhile with little boys, so I opted for that. I made the pennant banner with scraps of fabric I had around that house that *mostly* matched but I wasn't all too concerned with that...
MADE beds! Ha! They never look this good. Don't be fooled. I did this myself.
I customized this cutie pie canvas print on Paper Coterie when they were doing a freebie.
I absolutely love. it.
Now if only the boys could understand the greatness of brotherhood.
Allen's parents bought this chest of drawers for us from craigslist and I refinished it with paint and a little distressing. I love how it turned out.
My sweet friend, Misti, works at Beckett Sports Media and acquired these
awesome magazine covers for me to use on these canvases. I used the inside pages of Allen's old baseball magazines as the background and the covers Misti gave me on the front with some scrapbook paper to frame it. Modge podge was a great and difficult friend through the process.
Great find at IKEA. Beckett has loved having a place to put his favorite
treasures so he doesn't have to keep going up and down the ladder.
And finally, the boys enjoying their beds for their intended purpose. In case you can't tell, that's Easton on the right side of the picture. He has a reputation for sleeping anywhere BUT his bed.
We're counting that part of it a work in progress. ;)
