Big Boy Room Reveal

Big Boy Room Reveal

This post has been a long time coming, but here is the Big Boy Room reveal – finally! (If you’d like more info on sources and the budgets, check out the breakdown here.) Looking towards the door, you can see the alphabet print I talked about here, the growth chart I found on Etsy here and the monogram button art I made here.

There are a few things I want to tweak, and I might make some more bedding (with my mad sewing skills – ha!), but here it is… We bought our bedroom furniture about four years ago, with money that my grandparents had saved for me as a child.
