Starting out, I knew that I wanted the room to be a light gray with navy and white and pops of red added in. I didn't want anything too theme-y but I did want to include lots of dog things since Everett loves them. Any and all dogs: he wants to pet them, say hello, and is constantly playing with ours. So, that was my jumping off point. I brainstormed a lot and made a Pinterest board devoted to his big boy room.
The biggest project by far (and the cause for the delay) was the dog sign on the wall. In the end though, it's also my favorite part of his room. I love when something I envision actually becomes a reality. The other awesome piece is the chevron quilt that my mom made. It's perfect!
It took a year and a half, but I love this room. I love the personal stuff like my favorite picture of Everett and I when he was little and his bed that I painted white. It's a bed that I slept in growing up and so did my sisters and so did my dad. I love the chevron, polka dots, dogs, and initials. I love the signs I made, because I made them for Everett. I love the quilt and curtain that my mom made. And best of all, I love that Everett loves it just as much as I do.
