It is now over 3 years since I last upgraded Matthew’s bedroom. The time I decorated and painted his room I was 20 weeks pregnant with him. That is quite some time ago. He is nearly 3 1/2 years old now and I think he deserves a more boyish room other Winnie Pooh all over the place in his room. I spent a long time on one of my favourite platform Pinterest lately to look for some ideas what I can turn his room into.
Originally I planned to paint it a different blue and just add some Disney Cars stickers or Thomas the Tank engine. But lately he is on and off with his likings for his characters. At the moment he likes Mickey Mouse again and Paw Patrol and Blaze and the Monster machine. I would be forever updating his room.
So basically I started looking for more general stuff but still have a car theme.
I love this idea. It has a bit of everything. The blue colour at the bottom wall means it will save me time because his room is already painted like that. The only thing I have to repaint is the top because his room is a lighter cream. I love the combination of these two coming together. The road in the middle adds to it. It might take some time to draw it but once I have a bit of time on my hands I like doing this sort of stuff.
For the walls I am thinking of drawing some of these characters on a piece of paper and adding each of them into a frame and hang them around in his room or paint them onto a canvas. They are so cute looking aren’t they?
Furthermore I am looking for some bunting to hang around his room. Something like above to replace the Winnie Pooh stickers above his changing unit drawer which will now act as a shelf.
I haven’t quite decided what personal touch I want to add above his bed. Right now he has a photo of himself when he was 6 weeks old and beside it I have a saying stuck to it from Ebay “First we had each other, then we had you, now we have everything”.
I also bought a bookshelf a while ago from GLTC to add to his wall behind the door. His books are all over the place lying on his chair at the moment and it would look so much better when they are all lined up in the bookshelf and I can rotate them easily whenever I want.
Are you planning or currently upgrading your children’s room? Do you have a theme?
