We made the switch from Mac’s crib to a twin trundle awhile back. Overall, I would say it has gone really well! Mac is excited to be in his new room, and I think he likes the idea of having a “big boy bed like Daddy’s”. He keeps telling me that his old crib is for sharing with Baby Natalie, which is very sweet.
I wanted to show you some of the details of his new space! It’s not completely finished (nothing ever is…) Here is a reminder of what it looked like when we first moved in:
And here is where we are now!
Again, we painted everything – ceiling, trim, and walls. The wall color is Still Moment by Behr. It looks a little more warm in these pictures than it does in real life… It’s a bit more gray-green in person, and balances the warm wood and orange rug out nicely.
The trundle bed, chest of drawers, and smaller matching bookcase are actually the furniture from my room when I was a little girl! Thanks to my parents for hanging onto these pieces at my request… I love “things with a story”. Speaking of, the ship on the wall was actually in Andrew’s room when he was a little boy!
Mac’s trundle bed was fun to put together. It makes the most sense turned as a “day bed” against the wall. Until he stops falling out at night (which has only happened 2 or 3 times!), we pull the trundle out to buffer his fall.
I found the soft flannel sheets at TJ Maxx, and the quilt is a Pottery Barn twin.
I am still looking for what to hang above his bed. Currently, his favorite game is “No More Monkeys Jumping on the Bed” and I think anything with any weight may eventually impale/crush him when he knocks it off. 🙂 I’m leaning towards a really big map that hangs very close to the wall or even sticks to the wall, although I’m not looking to put up actual wallpaper.
Here are a few links if you want more details about the details:
I took this picture the first night we put made the switch… that Daddy loves his boy and I sure do love both of them.
Thanks for following along! We are still on baby watch around here… If nothing happens naturally, my C-section is scheduled next week!
