Boys Room - Decked!

Last week I shared our house all decorated for Christmas (click HERE to see that post!) and so today I'm going to show y'all some the boys room!  There's a cute little tree in Griffin's room - but apparently I forgot to take pictures - so I'll have to save that for another day.


Luke and Mason share a room - and while they REALLY wanted a big tree - it's close quarters so I opted for lots of twinkle lights and some festive little touches instead.




I filled a couple little jars with candy canes and ornaments and then displayed a few Christmas books on the shelves as well.  Dave laughs at me for doing this because he says it looks like the special books on top of the library shelves :)

I put a garland on their dresser (yes... that's an aquarium... we have a turtle named Sharpie. hahaha.  I'll blog about him another time) and filled it with ornaments and Hot Wheels cars.

The white trees I found at Target a couple of years ago...



Okay.... so last year I picked up this PEACE marquee sign at Target.  But then I had no idea what to do with it.  hahaha

It sat in the game closet for an entire year. The letters don't stand up and I didn't love how they looked propped up.  They were awkward to hang and I just got super frustrated.  A couple of weeks ago I was putting some things away in the garage and I saw this random board (I think it's leftover from when I made the Monster beanbag toss for the kids birthday last Spring)


I painted the entire board white using acrylic paint, then taped off stripes.

I painted the stripes black...

Let it dry and then peeled off the tape.  Then I just laid the letters out (this was the hardest part since the letters were wired together and so I was limited as to how I could arrange them).

I really wanted to hang it on the wall - but it was crazy heavy and so I used an extra table I had and propped it up.  Kind of jimmy-rigged, but it works for now. ;)




Arthur's Christmas Cookies was my book when I was little ;)


The small tree on their table is decked with classy ornaments like Spiderman and socks. :)

I think my favorite part of their room right now are the Dr. Seuss sheets.  They're incredibly soft and adorable and on sale at Pottery Barn kids right now.  I was pregnant with Griffin when I bought these and I MAY have bawled like a baby when I showed them to Dave talking about how I was going to put these sheets on their beds every year and that someday when they came home from college I was still going to put them on.  I sobbed and blubbered and then sobbed and blubbered some more.  It was a good time ;)



And at night ;)  And yes.... one of the beds is sheetless.  #reallife

I can NOT believe that Christmas is two weeks away!  The excitement at our house is palpable :) 

Have a FABULOUS day and be sure to come back tomorrow for Friday Favorites!!! It's going to be a great one!!!

Also, there are TONS of great sales going on right now and so I did a post below highlighting some items you may want to add to your list for Santa :)
