Big Boy Room Plans

Well my little man will be 3 this spring.  Where oh where did the time go?  We just moved him out of his crib to a big boy bed so of course my gears starting turning on re-decorating his room.  I was sad to let go of the crib but so excited that we are starting a new chapter.

Here is the nursery that I did when he was born.

I still love the colors so not much will be changing.  I plan on swapping the light blue for green though.  Just to throw in a little bit of a change.

Here's what I'm thinking.

I definitely wanted navy blue and white striped bedding, which I already bought.  It was the first new thing for the room.  The navy was a color I wanted for his nursery but never incorporated.

His new twin bed is still dark espresso.  It was a must for me.  I love the dark against the lighter gray and white stripes.  It also matches the color of his dresser which is staying.  Glad we bought it instead of a changing table from the start so now we don't have to buy another piece of furniture.

For storage, he is inheriting his sister's Ikea Trofast.  I may need to get more bins though.  One of hers was pink so that definitely is not going to work in his room.  I am still keeping his stained crates, but they might get a little makeover.  They will hold books and toys.  I removed the Ikea wall shelves since he pulled one down.  They never stood a chance.

I plan to add more color with pillows and artwork.  I like this blue and white pillow from Ikea.  The orange chevron pillow I already have so we'll see if it makes its way to this room.  I think I'm going to keep the chevron rug for now since it does keep orange in the room.  I also like the idea of a blueprint in the space.  I am taking away the animals and giving him a cars theme.  Well, not so much a theme, but he loves hot wheels and I think he will love the cars throughout the room.  The animals are too baby so they are going away. 

I like the idea of adding a few industrial elements like this metal letter and blue print.  I also like the captain's mirror but not sure where I would put it.

So , what do you think?  Do you love the plans as much as I do?  I've already started on some things so hopefully this room won't take long to finish.
