Colorful DIY Details Big Boy Room

Trucks, trains, color and lots of DIY projects are in this room! 
Lizzie at Pretty City Things recently finished decorating her son's 
big boy room and I'm pleased to share it with you.... 




Lizzie started with this design board:



Lizzie made the bed frame including the headboard you see below. 
You MUST see the bed tutorial - even if you don't want to make 
the bed, just see what she did!




Lizzie also embellished the bed linens by sewing ribbon onto the 
duvet cover she made from sheets.




Perfect storage and "garage!"




Did you notice these super cute book-ends on the dresser above? 
Lizzie's little man picked them out! A future designer!



Growth chart can be found here and learn how Lizzie jazzed up 
the ABC print!  



I tell you, this momma is a genius! Look at the "S" below, 
can you tell how its made? Check out her tutorial! 




I just love these colorful lanterns! And they're battery powered -
I think every house should have some!
Lizzie worked with really cool architecture - instead of covering 
it up, she let it be a part of the room.




So let's take a look at the BEFORE....





And AFTER....

FABULOUS!!

Last year Lizzie used the Tuesday's Nursery Link Party as incentive 
to finish the room. We all know how tedious finishing a project can 
be! You run into a snag and are ready to give it up or the room is 
80% done and you get started on another project. So Lizzie used 
the link party to post updates and mark her progress. 

This is exactly how I had intended Tuesday's Nursery party to be 
used - as an incentive to keep us going, showing the step by step 
progress of our rooms. Most other link parties are for completed 
projects, but I want everyone to feel good about stripping 
wallpaper, making an idea board or painting a room! 

Tuesday's Nursery will be returning on a monthly basis beginning August 7th - remember it's the FIRST TUESDAY of the month. 

Now head on over to Lizzie's blog Pretty City Things and tell her 
what a fab job she did on this room!

Thanks so much for the feature Nan! And so glad to hear Tuesday's Nursery is coming back - it'll get me moving on our baby daughter's room too!
All the best,
Lizzie :)
