yes, silas has a huge bed for a little boy, but it actually works out great for us. if we have a lot of our family visiting, we’ll generally give up our room and put silas on the floor and sean and i will take his bed.
silas’ headboard used to be ours for years, until we got our bed. a couple years ago i painted it retro avocado by behr and added the corkboard to the back.
he doesn’t usually have white sheets, but dark brown ones like in the last pic, but the white chenille bedspread is always there. it was ours when we first got married and i just haven’t found anything else that i really want for him, so this one stays for now.
i made his quilt at the end of his bed before he was born – it was a fun one, made up partially of shirts cut in strips!
the wall color is the same as the girls’ room, something very similar to mermaid net by behr. the wainscotting it also the same – 5 feet of tongue & groove panelling with a picture ledge at the top.
once we reorganized our garage with onesource cabinetry, this little tool chest no longer had a place. thankfully i was able to convince sean to give it a home here in silas’ room! we call it his tool chest and it holds lots of his little toys.
on top is a vintage skateboard sean and i found at a flea market years ago, a leather “s” i found at michaels, an “s” that silas made, a baby block and his itty bitty baby vans.
on the other side of his bed is this table i took from my parents’ house when i moved away for college. resting on it is a lamp from target and some fabric balls a friend and i made for a baby shower.
although technically a toy, this car from grandma serves equally as well as decor!
i found this locker cabinet at a garage sale and spray painted it a rusty orange (it was red). i got the blue metal suitcase and the sesame street lunch box at garage sales.
across form the end of silas’ bed is a bookshelf we got from an old school here in town, previously used as cubbies. silas loves reading books and this cubby system is awesome for him to be able to put away his own books. it also holds random toys and dress up clothes.
many of silas’ books were mine and sean’s when we were little.
just by adding hooks and screwing it to the wall, we turned a cracked longboard skateboard of sean’s into a cool coat rack behind silas’ door.
behind the 5-panel doors is his closet.
all the artwork around the room was found at a flea market and framed in aaron brothers frames.
and at the end of his bed is a little step stool from target that si uses to get up in bed.
up next is the kids’ bathroom!
