Big Boy Bedroom Makeover… Part III. The Reveal

Woohoo!  It’s done!  My big boy officially has a Big Boy Room!  It’s been a long journey from the initial planning stages, through to all the hard work of painting, hanging and making.  The final (and fun) stage is now done, and all the finishing touches have been added to the room.  I have created a room that Nate absolutely loves, with Lego, beagles, cows, football, farming, superheroes and motorbikes all featuring in the final look of the room.  Not only does it look great, but it’s completely practical… there’s room for all of Nate’s things to be stored away, and also plenty of room for him and his sisters to play, create and use their imagination.  I’ve joined forces with some AHH-MAZING small business gals in this makeover, and if you keep reading, there are some special offers just for Chasing Spring readers…  (go on keep scrolling!)

I am a big supporter of shopping small wherever I can.  The quality of products that you buy from a small biz always surpasses that of the mass produced, and the whole buying experience is different!  Products come beautifully packaged with cute handwritten notes, and you can just feel that the maker has put a little piece of their heart into your purchase!  I had the privilege of using lots of small biz products in Nate’s room makeover, and I just love that they add to the individuality of the room!  These small biz gals were amazingly supportive, and they have kindly offered DISCOUNT CODES to use in their online stores, just for Chasing Spring readers!  WOOHOO!  Thanks so much girls!!  Scroll on through all the photos, GET INSPIRED, and at the end of the post you will find all the details you will need including links to these amazing stores, their products and the discounts codes!  Happy shopping!

  1. I need to have a hook for footy boots!

    Also really love that lego space. better than all over the floor.

    I bet Nate loves it. xx

    1. Thanks Helle, yes the lego space is great- many many hours spent there already! And the hook for footy boots has become a necessity after the ‘mystery of the ONE lost footy boot’ last weekend! Nate loves the whole room, and also loves playing with his new car… it doesn’t always get to sit peacefully on the shelf! xx
