The beginnings of a big boy room

Thursday, May 22, 2014
I suppose you could say we officially started working on P's big boy room today. The corner bedroom upstairs began its transformation from guest room to a room fit for a fun-loving toddler boy. P is really not close to being ready for a big boy bed and new room, so it is going to be a work in progress for a while. It is nice though that we are physically switching the room he will be in so we can gradually get the next room ready without disturbing his current "crib."

The first step was getting a window seat and whole wall of built-ins installed. The room is huge and definitely could handle a wall of storage with plenty of room to spare. We have been talking about doing something like this since we moved in but it just hadn't made it to the top of our priority list since the room was used so infrequently. We have also been wanting a window seat built and installed in the dormer of the Auburn room / man cave upstairs.

We found a great local guy to build the cabinetry and his team came and installed them both yesterday. So that is what has been happening around our house. Perry didn't know what to think of all the noise and commotion that came with the install and his nap got delayed a couple hours because of the power tools happening across the hall. It was totally worth it though because the cabinets look amazing!

What will be P's big boy room:

All that storage is going to be incredibly helpful in keeping a toddler's room a little more clutter free (hopefully). And provide tons of space for cute decorations and a sitting area below the window. We already have what will be his new bed (a wooden twin bed built by his great grandfather) and his bedding picked out. More on that to come. Until then I will be here admiring our new cabinets.
