Our house has been under construction for months. We need to renovate so that we could separate the kids who have shared a room since little (E) was born. At 3 and 6 we decided it was time for them to have their own spaces. I have decided to share both with you. I am proud of them and the kids are pleased.
(A) is obsessed with Dinosaurs. So much so that he had a Dino Birthday (write up to come) this past year and when I asked him what type of bedroom he would like, he was really excited to have it Dino themed as well. I am no interior designer, but I did my best.
I wanted to make the room mature but also fun, something that he didn’t outgrow in a year or so. As he is also in 1st grade and really starting to get into reading, I wanted to make a reading “nook” as well. That is where I first focused my efforts. I decided to create a Pteranodon nest for him that he could sit in and read.
The nest itself is a bean bag chair, and the eggs are “rock” pillows. I then found this great leaf canopy (made by IKEA) to put over the top. The dinosaurs on the side are from (A)’s birthday party but can be found HERE.
The Spinosaur shown was purchased from Etsy- but they have some smaller cool versions on AMAZON. We used this one and the map shown framed above (created to look like our back yard) to spice up the room. These were also from (A)’s birthday party.
Over his bed we added these “cave drawings” that he made.
Blanks can be purchased HERE. These are held up with 3M products.
(A) wanted to keep his quilt so I just added some cute dinosaur sheets that coordinated.
I love dream catchers, so I had to find one that was “on theme” (yes that is a Triceratops in the middle). I did and am OBSESSED. (A) made me read the legend several times and he is keeping it in his night stand. I actually have to find one for his sisters room now too.
I updated his lamp with this Glow in the dark vinyl sticker (which can be removed)- and then added them a few other places as well.
These shelves are a great way to display trophies and belts. We decorated with his sign that he made with Mary of Underground Finds and Furniture (it glows in the dark too).
He needed somewhere to store his things, so I found this great old toolbox for him to keep things organized. I made the banner for him, and then added the dinosaur skull lamp he received as a birthday gift from his cousin.
All in all he is SO pleased, as am I. He now has a bedroom that he loves and can grow with him- and so does his puppy.
