Little Ro’s Room

Posted in Uncategorized at 10:30 pm by chasingtoddlermom

I am feeling a little overwhelmed at all the work I need to do to move Little Ro’ into a big boy room in a couple of months and clean out the play room.  UGH.  How on earth did one little boy acquire so many toys??  Not to mention all the junk we have stuffed in the playroom closet.  It will become the new baby’s nursery.  So, we have the clean-out, the wall-washing, the painting, the shutter-ordering, and on and on to do in the next couple of months.  This is going to be a heck of a honey-do list!  Just kidding!

I’m having an impossible time finding bedroom furniture that I like for LR, but I have already bought his bedding and my mind (and internet shopping skills) are going a million miles an hour to figure out all the details.  I bought his bedding quite a while ago at Pottery Barn Kids.  Is there any other place??  I think not.  To follow his obsession, his room is going to be all about trains.  Here is what is left of the bedding at PBK.  It’s so perfect, I had to snatch it up!  I picked up the matching lamp shade this weekend.  So…now onto storage and wall art, etc.  We’re looking for a storage bed, but if we can’t find one we like, I think I’ll go for some PBK Sabrina baskets under the bed for toys, etc.  And I’m going to pick up one of these in red.  He has a darling little red chair I’m hoping we can fit in his room as well.

In my quest to create the perfect train room for my little guy, I have come across some great sites to get very unique wall art!  I haven’t ordered anything yet, so I guess I can’t speak for the final products, but they look so darn cute, I can’t resist!  Okay…in no particular order…here are the fun sites I’ve found:
www.cuddlebugsart.com – I don’t think I can live without this and a few other train-related items on the site.  She also has some darling sailboat art possibly for the nursery, but more on that in another post.

Sarah Jane Studeos – I think I’m in love with just about everything in her store.  Nothing here for LR’s room, but another nursery idea…again, for another post.  And a bonus–she’s local!  I’m tempted to order from her just to support a local mom in business for herself!

Constant Dreamer – I love these prints–especially the fish, turtle, and whale.  Again, another idea for the nursery…

I’m still searching out other cute sites along the same lines, but had to share these great finds!  Etsy is a great source for unique finds and there are a ton of other artists with great prints, but these three just stood out to me.

Wish me luck!!

  1. Oh my gosh, I think I might need to invest in some of those train letters myself! They are so adorable! If you need to go check some stuff out in person, just let me know. I’d love to tag along!

    Thanks! I’m definitely going to need some help deciding on paint colors at the very least. I hate picking out paint–it scares me to death! I just ordered the train letters, so I’ll show you as soon as they’re here! I decided to order those before ordering anything else from her, just in case. But I’m really excited.
