For G's room, we wanted big drama on a reduced budget (this damn recession!) . After spending too much on Big Sister's crib set, I picked a bumper from PBK and just bought solid sheets/crib skirt to go with it - done. From that, we decided to go nautical.... but with a PIRATE feel!
My favorite part of the room is the gigantic pirate ship over his crib (do you see a tiny g-man in the crib?!) It's a 5 feet long white vinyl decal and I worked with Camary at Hums and Tiddely Poms on Etsy to get it just how I envisioned. The Everythings came over last summer to help put it up. Vinyl decals are super easy to put up and super cheap. This one took up a huge wall and cost $50. And it's removable, which is important because we move alot, and the next people might not be into pirates. ;) You can get a vinyl decal to go with anything! Just go to etsy.com and search for: vinyl decal owls, sports, ladybugs, whatever!!
I have to give Mr. Fix-It alot of credit.... it was his idea to put up the beadboard (it's great because, as a builder, he sees alot of cool things and brings the ideas home!) I wanted to paint the walls navy blue and the beadboard white - lots of contrast!
And a few of the special pics in his room..... A belly shot of me with Big Sister:
Um, ignore that the trashcan is FULL! ;)
One of the drawer pulls - a pirate ship!
