Big Boy Bedroom Reveal with IKEA

Hello Everyone, you might remember my Collage I shared with ideas for our sons bedroom some time back? Well last month his room finally got some new paint and new bookshelves. I also hung new curtains and he got a BIG Queen size bed to grow into. The room is not finished yet, but I do want to share the changes we've made so far.
I am on the look-out for a new side table and finishing touches. 

The curtain is RITVA from IKEA I just looped a rope around it,

just like I did in our Living and Dining Room 

I know a queen size bed is big for a  9 year old, but it works out super great for sleep-overs as well. 
He has a playroom, so he never plays in his bedroom anyways

The new Bed Linen is NYPONOS from IKEA

The bookshelves are LIATORP from IKEA

We badly needed more storage for his giant GODZILLA COLLECTION

This little boy loves Godzilla

and Sharks....

Here is what his little boy room looked like BEFORE
I was really tired of the red paint color

Well, that's it for today. Have a wonderful rest of your Sunday!!!!! 
HUGSSS to all

  1. What a wonderful space for your little man, Christine!! I LOVE the wall colors you chose! Great idea on the queen size bed too! Id nothing else-he has plenty of room to spread out all of his Godzilla's!! LOL!! Have a great weekend! Hugs, CD!

  2. Oh I just LOVE it! His room looks so much bigger with a bigger bed (I know what sounds weird, but it does.) I love the bookcases lined on the wall showcasing his collection too. I bet he loves his new bigger bed! That was money well spent. We still need to redo my 13 yr olds room. It's next on "the list". LOL! Doesn't everyone have a list? Btw, I know you already link to a lot of parties, but if you're interested, I co host a party every Wed night called Share Your Style. Me and 7 other bloggers host it so you link up to one of us and it shows up on all 8 blogs. Just thought I'd tell you about that if you're interested.

  3. Absolutely wonderful!!!!! Love how you displayed his collection!

  4. I love stylish this boy room is, but still screams BOY!! The colors, sharks, & lights are amazing!! Have a great week, Christine!


  5. I love it! My little guy walked in when I was looking at the pictures, and he likes it too -- especially the Godzilla collection. :)

  6. Such a great room. I love the use of the vintage planes. Are those little windows on the wall? They are super cute!

  7. This is such a cute idea. I only have girls, so I don't know if I would know how to decorate for a boy!

  10. That little boy will be a strapping teenager before you know it move buying a queen sized bed. It looks fabulous!

  11. Christine your little boy's room looks great! If anyone loves sharks, in my opinion, is an AWESOME human being. The kids are the future to saving our oceans and every living creature that live in them. Sorry off topic, but I get excited when I see fellow shark fans!

  12. Love the rope around the curtain. Your boy is lucky to have such a great bedroom!
