Hi Everyone, Rocky here!
If you have been reading for a while than you probably read about my plans to transform my sons room in this post here. Just to jog your memory, when we moved into our rental I basically just threw a bunch of kid furniture in here and didn’t touch it again.
What can I say, the room was a bit of a mess. I couldn’t stand how the color of the walls made everything look a little bit dingy and yellow. Since my son was still sleeping and napping in this room it took me about a month of working on it in small chunks to finish everything. To combat the buttercream color I decided to paint the whole room Dunn Edwards Crystal Haze, it has been one of my favorite go to warm grays. It seems to work in every house I put it in and I especially love it in this room.

If you have been reading for a while you probably remember my daughter’s Heart room makeover. In our last house both kids shared a tiny bedroom. When we decided to move, one of our goals was to get a house with enough bedrooms so that each kid could have their own room. I talked a lot about the reasons in the linked post above, but long story short separating them meant that everyone would get more sleep. We took on Big sisters room first since it was our previous guest room furniture and the whole room desperately needed some attention. She was also going to start school soon and I wanted her adjusted to her new space before the year started. I knew then that my sons room would come next and I decided on a surf shack theme. Since we live in San Clemente, have views of the ocean from our house and frequent the beach it seemed appropriate. So, with that in mind, as I saw things that could work in his space I started picking them up on clearance and stock piling.

We had discussed eventually separating our kids into their own bedrooms once we got settled into our new house. Initially I did not want to mess with their routine or disturb our school schedule. However, we quickly realized our two year old needs about three less hours of sleep than everyone else in our house *insert big eye emoji*. I am going to take this opportunity to interject that we do have a bedtime routine and we are pretty diligent about sticking to it ( mainly for our own sanity). He is just a little more high energy than the rest of us and wakes up every morning on a mission. Most nights at bedtime we hear our daughter screaming for us to come upstairs and remove him from her bed. Or he kindly decides to body slam her first thing in the morning. All this being said, her room quickly moved to the top of the list of priority projects. Well, that and a set of black out curtains for our sons room.
