It’s been a while since we began this project, but Hudson’s big boy room is finally finished. We kind of worked in stages on this room as it started as a play room and then when we found out we were expecting Hayes, we decided to make it Hudson’s big boy room.
I’ve already blogged about the transition to the big boy bed, but now that his room is officially complete, I can share all of the photos with you.
I went through my mom to order the custom draperies with blackout lining. They’re light and have just the right amount of blue chambray detailing to make them boyish without looking too heavy. This is the view from inside the bedroom door.
One wall includes the dresser and the cafe shelves with all of Hudson’s memorabilia on display. The cafe shelves are from Ballard Designs and we originally purchased them to use in our former study. The study became the play room and the play room became Hudson’s room. These cafe shelves are one of our favorite home purchases. The black dresser is from Rooms to Go Kids. It was a great price– especially since we know Hudson probably won’t use this furniture for too many years.
His birth announcement and a bulletin board are also hanging on the wall. Some of our favorite Melissa and Doug toys, Jellycats stuffed animals, and special gifts are sitting on the shelves. And Hudson and “Melmo” are sitting on the floor.
The view from the window looking at the bed. Isn’t the bed rail the best accessory? We don’t think we’re quite ready to drop the rail, although the bedding would be much cuter without it! The daybed and trundle are also from Rooms to Go Kids.
The bedding includes five different fabrics and it was custom made with the help of my mom. I was so happy when I found these fabrics and my mom was able to find an adorable car and truck fabric that was young-boyish without looking heavy and super masculine.
The fabulous Kim Wheeler of Small Words did Hudson’s canvas to match the bedding.
Here are a couple of views of the cubbies that we had built. We had these built and designed back when the room was going to be a play room. I’m loving them even more now. We have so much vertical storage for all of Hudson’s DVDs, toys, and books. He can see what he wants to play with and just grabs it.
He has also gotten really good about putting things back where they belong!
A closet up of the fabrics that we used for Hudson’s bedding. I think it’s all so much fun and the colors are so happy for a little boy’s room.
I think this guy is pretty comfortable in his new room! So is Melmo.
