Ahhhh remember baby Amos's nursery? I loved that room. It was my favorite room in the house. Alas, the problem with falling in love with a nursery is babies grow up and need big kid rooms. In this case, last year we decided to move both boys into the same room so it needed to be a big kid room for TWO.
I loved the grey (and am too lazy to repaint) so I knew that was staying. I knew we'd need a bunk bed, which Papa Ron lovingly agreed to build. (No, you may not have him.) We moved the toy storage and train table in and added a dresser repurposed from the living room. Both the bed and dresser were painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint from Flower + Furbish.
The last piece was removing the trees and adding color in a new and fun way. I love the look of bright bold colors on a calm background and G (Nicholas's mom) made the most awesome modern cool kids quilts for the boys bed. Inspired by those colors, I bought a rainbow of vinyl and cut big polka dots to scatter randomly around the room.
I'm so thrilled with the results and the boys are too!
