Big Boy Bedroom Makeover: The Big Reveal

Welcome to the twins' Coastal Blues Big Boy Bedroom!  Last week I shared 3 design options and while I loved all three the bright and breezy vibe of the Coastal Blues was the way to go for my guys. The crisp whites and blues with pops of orange and turquoise give a playful personality to the room. Perfect for my soon to be Kindergarteners!  

Sources for the above mood board are....

This space was previously being used as our guest room. 
And the after!! We chose a super neutral wall color called Benjamin Moore Patriotic White.  It has the slightest tint of blue in it and really makes the room feel a lot bigger and airy.

There were a few DIY projects for this room like the 3-draw dresser, the diamond planked panel closet doors and an IKEA expedit hack. I'll share more details on those projects in the next coming weeks.  

The light neutral color pallet is totally relaxed and the pops of coral & turquoise in the gallery picture wall of art and window treatments bring brightness and fun to the decor.  How adorably sweet is this "Brothers Word Art" from the Etsy shop PaperMints?! The shop owner, Samantha, customized the colors to match the DIY roman shades I made out of Land of Nod Sketch Pad panel curtains.

Gotta have a little East Coast representation - Boston in the house!

My babes when they were about 8 months.
And now... how fast they grow!
I hope you enjoyed the tour of the Coastal Blues Big Boy Bedroom! The boys are fully loving their new space.  I still need to add a few playful accessories and of course figure out a way to store all of their Legos and Lego creations. But a girl can only do so much at 37 weeks prego!

If you are into this decor vibe come back tomorrow and I'll share how you can get the look with our cost saving sources!!!


  1. I am DYING over the closet doors!! They look amazing. I know you said you will be posting about them but will you tell me what you used as the base? I'm just in the process of planning new closet doors for my girls and was going to reuse the ones they have but they're pretty banged up!

    1. Hey! They are to die for right??? The frame is made of 3/4" poplar and the backing is 1/2" hardboard (what a traditional clipboard is made of), and we used 4"x1/4" pine planks (trim boards). They were cut on a compound miter saw and we used pennies as the spacers. xoxo
