OLIVER’S BEDROOM

Oliver’s bedroom has been on our to-do list for quite some time now. We decorated his “nursery” while I was pregnant with him but to be honest, his “nursery” became our home gym right after he was born. Oliver’s room has never really been his so it was definitely time to give it a makeover and create a space just for him!

Oliver is only 2.5, but he has quite the personality! He knows exactly what he likes and doesn’t like. We wanted him to be involved in his bedroom makeover. We let him pick his paint color |we gave him options we were okay with| and we let him choose his theme/decorations! He LOVES superheroes, especially The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy |our Disney love runs deep| so it was no surprise when he gravitated towards those decor items!

When it came to the furniture in Oliver’s room, there was a lot of back and forth between John and me. I wanted Oliver to have the same IKEA dresser that Piper has in her room just in a different color. As for his bed, we really couldn’t decide whether we wanted to get him a twin bed or a bunk bed like Piper has. I started scrolling Pinterest for some inspiration and stumbled across a Jeep bed. I knew that Oliver would love it so I showed John. He immediately jumped on the idea of building Oliver’s bed!

I am still in awe at how awesome his bedroom looks! I loved seeing his little face light up the first time he saw it! He is completely OBSESSED with his bed |what child wouldn’t be?!| and loves pretending he’s Hulk Smash and Spider-Man! It seriously brings tears to my eyes seeing how happy he is in his bedroom!

This Jeep bed was built and customized completely by John and Oliver’s PopPop |John’s step-dad Kevin|. This bed has a steering wheel, working headlights, turn signals, and color changing rock lights!
The O on his door is a collage of superheroes, which is so cool! I love the shelf that holds his costumes. It is perfect for him to reach so that he can be a superhero whenever he wants, which is at least 3 times a day!! The O, shelf, and shield are from Hobby Lobby and Thor’s hammer is from Amazon. The rug is from Target.
This IKEA Hemnes dresser is seriously the best dresser for kids. I love that they will never outgrow it. The drawers open and close so easy and are very smooth, I worry a little less about smashed fingers! Spider-Man and Black Panther are actually pillows from Target. Oliver loves to run around the house with them! The light switch cover is from Amazon and has all of The Avengers on it.
The Groot wall sign, Hulk light switch cover, and the dinosaur bins are from Hobby Lobby. The curtain is from Target.
The comforter and sheet set are from Kohl’s.
The Captain America pillowcase and shield pillow are both from Target.
The Spider-Man wall decor is Hobby Lobby.
