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!
