What happens when your little guy has outgrown his crib and moved on to preschool? Yes! It’s time to think about a Big Boy Room! Meesh from Imeeshu designed this Restoration Hardware Inspired Big Boy Room for her son. The first step in any big kid room is deciding on a new bed. Pick something that will work with your space and with your lifestyle. Meesh chose to go big with a queen size bed. She says, “we got him into a queen-sized bed so that we could all snuggle down together and read at nap and bedtime. the glider was getting a little tight with me, the two boys, all the stuffed animals, and several books. we’re small folks, but c’mon! that’s gosh dang ridiculous (as we often say around here!)”
The bed was purchased from Craigslist and then given a face lift using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
Meesh says, “i just love the finish that Annie Sloan with dark wax gives. delicious! and lest you be confused, Annie Sloan’s paints aren’t JUST chalkboard paint. it’s a paint made with chalk in the mixture. i love it b/c i don’t have to sand, prime, or use toxic chemicals to paint over prior colors. glossy? no problem. just paint over it and use the Annie Sloan waxes to get a certain detailed effect.”
This pine dresser also got the “Annie Sloan Chalk Paint” treatment (Duck Egg for the shell of this dresser, dry-brushed some Aubusson Blue)
The dresser drawers have a base coat of magnetic paint for added fun!
No room is complete without a few well-loved stuffed animal pals. 🙂
