J’s room update

J's room updateWhat started with a little rocket to hold Tsum Tsums became a room transformation for J. Besides his Tsum Tsum holder, here is how I updated J’s room this summer…

J's room updateBack in May I purchased the rocket for J’s room, and then realized he needed some updating in his room, especially a new headboard, so he doesn’t continue to look like he’s just moved into a college dorm room.

Here is the finished look:

And here is a close-up of his decor:

The little animal holder was made by my Grampie for me. You’ll notice that a lot of the pieces in his room (and A’s) are ones that have been handed down. I frequently move around pieces and use them where they work. This was perfect for J’s little collection of Schleich animals, frogs, and dinosaurs.

I also updated the bins at the end of his bed (Target) with ones that have easily removable lids. His little rug on the bins is from IKEA and he’s had it since he was a baby.

The corner of his room I moved some of his furniture around (and moved his kitchen and tool bench to his closet) to give him more space in his room.

Both of the boys LOVE reading, so this bookcase (It’s vintage from my Grandparents) holds just some of his many books. They have so many that I work to buy only favorites and we check out a bunch from the library.

I had to feature the finished Disney mat and frame for J’s room:

I picked up 5 x 7 frames from Target and they easily fit in a ziploc bag with a sharpie. I slide them into my backpack and everytime we saw a character I would just quickly get them out and have them signed. The boys especially liked the “Gawrsh” from Goofy.

And finally here is the other side of J’s room:

Overall, I think he’s pretty excited:
