When I was pregnant with Jack, we decided not to find out if he was a boy or girl, but I don't think that would have changed the way we did his room. We love Dr. Seuss, so it was perfect for us to make a space for our child with Dr. Seuss characters at it's core. Once Jack arrived and we started knowing him better, we added more things that fit his personality.
Here is the his room when you stand in the doorway. Paintings, bunting, and curtains are made by me. The beautiful blue quilt was made for him by Matt's mom, and she also made the Thomas the Tank Engine pillows for him. He loves those pillow so much! It's pretty cute!
Here is the view of the other wall. Due to the size of the room, I had to shoot these vertically, but for reference, his dresser is on the other side of the window in the above picture.
I'd like to touch on his dresser for a minute. Both of the boys have a beautiful dresser that Matt's uncle made by hand, specifically for them.
I love that they have these heirloom pieces, and I am so glad they will be able to keep them for years to come (maybe even for their own babies! Eeek what a thought!). On top of the dresser is his piggy bank, his crayon bank (dude loves saving coins!), and his goldfish. Side note: I had to move the fish food off of his dresser because one day I came into his room to find him standing on a box at his dresser, eating the fish food. True story.
Now...I usually steer clear of closet pictures, because really - hanging clothes are pretty standard, but in kid spaces, it is important to make the most of your toy storage. We put a foam puzzle mat in his closet and he uses that area as more play space.
So there you have it! Jack's big boy room!
