When we moved into our house I had decided that I just wanted to work with the colors that were already painted on our walls. I painted in the condo and it was just a lot of work and I didn't feel up to painting again. And I really didn't mind the colors that were here. I actually really liked the colors that were in our 2 spare bedrooms because they were boy colors. The room that is now Prestons new room was painted in a navy blue and a beige with white trim. Right after we moved in I found bedding that I really liked with those same colors at Target and bought it, knowing that it would be for Prestons room. So I've known for a while that his bedroom would be a car theme, luckily he turned out to LOVE cars. We also already had a Ford banner up in the room as well as our computer and desk. So after I cleared out the desk and computer and all of our stuff the room looked like this...
( I don't know why this picture has circles on it...dumb camera! )
So really all I had to do was put together his new dresser, night stand, and headboard. And then decorate! We moved in all his toys and all we have left is his clothes and shoes. And I'm not sure I'm quite ready to move that until we move him out of his crib...another big step we will need to take in the next few months! But here is the after...I like how it turned out and I loved how Preston thought it was christmas when he saw his car rug...he plays on it a TON!
The American Iron poster on his wall is actually a poster of Ron, Grandpa Coon, Spencer holding Preston, John, Grant and James and Rob and Brigham all standing by Ron's cars. Its a really fun picture and I'm so glad Preston was able to be in it and now its the perfect poster for his room! Also the Ford banner was up in Spencers room when I met him and I'm not sure how long he's had it but I love that it got passed down to Preston...makes it special :).
Now for baby girls room...I'm going to have a lot more to do in that room because I will definitely have to paint and I have nothing for it so we are starting from scratch! Wish me luck :).
