We’ve been living in our new house for almost exactly a year now, so I think it’s time to actually take pictures of the boys’ rooms! Perhaps I’ll even get around to writing a post about the whys and whats of our move? Too far, too far, haha!
When we first moved in, this room was the dumping ground for all of Thomas’ furniture from the old house. We just needed his bed/changing table/toys set up right away so he could play while we unpacked. The school year started just a few weeks after we moved in, so it was actually a few months before we realized that this room wasn’t a good fit for him at the time (I was walking back and forth across the house to nurse him 2-3x/night, and since the boys’ room is next door, his light-sleeping tendencies were a problem during the day).
So for a time, this room was my office and our huge master closet was Thomas’s bedroom! It was such a cozy little set up and I’ll miss it for sure 🙂 He was right next to our bed for all his night time nursings, and he was able to become a much better sleeper due to the quiet and lack of light.
But alas, all good things come to an end eventually. When we got back from our long road trip this summer, Thomas was weaning and also sleeping through the night, so we decided it was time to regain our closet and give Thomas back his room! We also noticed he was outgrowing his mini crib/bassinet, which was somewhat emotional for me. I painstakingly hand painted this crib with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint when I was 6 months pregnant, and it was a definite labor of love! But he was definitely bumping up against the sides and so it was time. I decided to create his own modern boho baby room, since that description basically sums up my entire house, haha 😉
We kept the same dresser/changing table as before because I love how the drawers fit all of his things! I have plans to stain the natural wood to match the crib….when I get the time 😉 We have a sample of Ecos wood stain on its way, so we’ll see if it’s a match!
Every little guy needs his diffuser and saltwater sandals. <3
We moved all of Thomas’ toys near the window because he absolutely loves the sunshine.
And then of course his rocking chair and Sandra Boyton books! All three of my kids have loved her books and the boys are getting such a kick out of reading these same stories to Thomas now!
