Boys’ Nautical Shared Bedroom

We’ve been working for several weeks on our Boys’ Nautical Shared Bedroom and it is almost finished. Yay! I’m hoping to share the room reveal soon, but thought that I’d first give you a peek at what we are doing!

About a month ago, my hubby and I were racking our brains trying to figure out how we could find some more storage space in our home. We’ve rearranged furniture and minimized our belongings. However, we still just needed an area where things could be better organized, but out of the way. And that kept leading to the same solution.

We needed to reclaim our master closet turned nursery.

Not only for the storage possibilities but also more privacy and better sleep. So, we approached our older son about the possibility of him sharing his bedroom with his little brother. He loved that idea! I must say it was bittersweet thinking about saying goodbye to that sweet little nursery.

Originally, our son’s room had brown carpets like the rest of the bedrooms in The Country House. And they needed to go!

A couple of years ago, my hubby ripped out all of the flooring and replaced it with new laminate hardwood planks. We also painted all of the wood trim a crisp white. Other than that, we did nothing else to this room since. It has stayed that way with the same furniture that my son had in The City House.

Since we were going to be having the boys room together, it seemed like a great time to update this space for both of them!

 

For our Boys’ Nautical Shared Bedroom, we are going with an ocean theme.

Our older son has some major love for sharks and the sea. Plus, we already had an oar, so this seemed like a good place to start.

He also wanted some color on his walls. Not boring old white like his mom would pick out. After some deliberation, he settled on Silver Strand from Sherwin Williams. The name is a bit deceiving though since the color is actually green-gray color.

We are so excited to get this room wrapped up and I can’t wait to share the finished product!
