Big Boys Room

Ok friends, I have officially wrestled my very last bunkbed sheets. Not doing that anymore. Even though it was some good cardio...

You know how it starts. The 5 year old needs a big boy bed, because after all, he's 5 years old still sleeping in a crib converted into a toddler bed. Yeah, it was time. So I decided he could have the guest bed. Then the big guys were like well, hey, if you're taking the bed out of the guest room, let us move into that room! And that's how the great fruit basket turnover of 2016 started. The whole house has been perfect chaos ever since.
But it's all good. Things are starting to come together. Kinda. 
That room was a bit bigger than their old room, so (Hallelujah!) we were able to separate the bunks. Now they have no excuses, they can change their own sheets. 

I didn't want to put a lot of money into the room swap, so all we did was put a fresh coat of white paint on the walls (Bright White from Sherwin Williams). I found the striped comforters on sale at Target for $14 each - Score! They didn't come with shams, so I bought solid navy ones from Walmart for 2.88 each. Made the throw pillows from some scrap fabric I had in my stash. I got the whole set of nautical flags on ebay for under $20, then strung them together to make banners. The oars were a Hobby Lobby clearance purchase - can't beat $12! Large metal letters were from TJ Maxx a few years ago.

Now, if I can just get the 5 year old's big boy room all done, I'll be one happy Mama!

Don't forget you still have a few days to enter the awesome watch giveaway! See previous post to enter.
