One Room Challenge: Week 6 - Peyton's Room Reveal!!

Let me first say that it had been quite a challenge trying to keep my 2 year old locked out of his 'new' room :-)
He cried for a while and begged me to let him inside, but I did not want to spoil the surprise. Anyway, as of today, he 'waits no more'. I can report he is very "happy, happy, happy, happy".

The bed was originally a convertible crib which served as a very good investment.

This monogram art was a 'spur of the moment' decision. Initially, I had planned to use the map, but later decided against it, (it was too large for the space). Anyway, I am happy with the way the art turned out, considering, it was a DIY project. 

The wall lamps are 'dressed' in a lovely striped, orange, ribbon trim :-). They can be rotated as needed.

The trim on the roman shades, is just a wider version of that used on the lamps.

These fan blades were painted to match the color of the walls. It is such a 'cool' item to look at (pun intended),  :-) and by far, one of my favorite elements in the room. Its features include a 6 speed full function remote control, and a revolutionary quiet DC motor. It also has 2, 4 and 8 hour 
sleep timer and 1 minute walk away light delay....'so super cool'.

You may notice there is no specific theme going on here. I 
just tried to incorporate small touches of things little boys love.

Money Bank

One of my favorite baby pictures.

I made this shadowbox following inspiration from here. It was funny watching my son try to pry the cars out of the shadowbox, only for him to discover it was sealed shut :-).

The orange truck serves as a night light. It features a rechargeable battery, which requires you pressing down on it to turn the light on or off.

(Painted Ikea Latt table and chair set, with added padding for comfort). I followed this tutorial.

Storage for his drawing and writing tools.

My little one loves to be read to, so I know he will like having all these books on his wall.

I reupholstered this chaise which was originally pink. This provides a cozy spot for reading. The chaise belonged to my daughter, and I had to promise her a new one before she finally decided to give it up :-). 
Click here to see what the chaise looked like before.

DIY magnetic boards. My intention was to use these as stop lights; red, yellow, and green. I decided against it when I observed how much color the room already had. I think the neutral looks a lot better. I added magnetic strips to painted wooden cut-outs.

Well, that wraps it up for the tour, and as usual, I hope you were inspired. Thanks for stopping by, and also for the encouragement received during the challenge. It is much appreciated. Please head over to Linda's blog for even more inspiration.

  4. Delia!
    I'm so glad you participated again this round! You have amazing talent - I have so enjoyed following your progress! This room is adorable! Great job!

    1. Thank you so much Shelia! It is encouragement such as these that keep me going :-)

  5. You made me laugh just thinking about your son trying to get into everything before the big reveal! Delia I love every detail of Payton's new and improved big boy room! My favorite elements are the roman shades, the lamp, his initials above his bed, and that adorable craft table with tins for all the arts & craft supplies! He's one lucky boy to have a talented mama like you! You can tell you put so much love and care into this room. I had such a hard time figuring out what to do with the bed situation with my daughter who is 3, because my youngest daughter will be 2 in a few months and who knows if they'll be sharing a room. Looks like you decided to use a full? XOXO Sarah

    1. Hahaha...thanks Sarah :-) My son's crib was a convertible which could later be changed to a full-sized bed. I figured he would grow with it. I plan on attaching the original side rails that came with the crib, for safety purposes.

  6. P.S. I meant to write Peyton but darn spell check. Sorry. :)

    1. No worries. I type one thing and it spells out another...frustrating.

  7. I am sure there is nothing worse than a mad 2 year old!!! But I am also sure that Peyton was a happy boy when he walked in for the first time:) Such a cute room with so many great details! Great job!

  8. What a great room for a little boy! I love the colour scheme--and everything looks great. What a lot of work you did!

  9. Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic....I did feel bad when you said that your son cried :(. I love this room. You gave it so much thought. I really like how the fan blades match. Great shadow box and definitely made with love. So good.

    1. Thanks a lot Linda. I reassured him mommy was making it pretty :-)
