Max's Big Boy Room Renovation Plans

As I've said before, Max's nursery room never got redone when we moved (yep, been here over a year now). 
We had set up a Where the Wild Things are nursery mural out of vinyl and the family buying it had 2 young boys so it was perfect for them. He will keep the same Wild Things theme (he really loves the book now) with a foresty/woodsy feel to his room.
Here is the inspiration pic (from Pottery barn when they carried the wild things theme). Luckily my sister bought the wild things sheets before they were discontinued last year.
This is Max's current room. He has a big wall that you see when you walk in the door. The ceilings are pitched as you can kind of see and to the right is the huge window (not sure why I didn't take a picture). His window is a big square and then has 2 side panels and a half circle arch above the big square one so lots of light.  We have black out panels and his curtains. Across from his crib is some wall space where we have his book and chair and then his closet.
His dresser/changing table are on the left wall. We decided to give the white nursery furniture to baby girl including the glider. Max will get a new big boy bed (twin), dresser and all that in a dark wood color probably. Did you know that beds/furniture is ridiculously expensive for nice stuff? Well, it is. I am still searching for the perfect things. The existing beige in the walls is pretty nice and this room must not have been used much as there are no marks on the walls like in other rooms.
We decided to paint the one wall where his bed (current crib wall) is on a foresty green. I picked a bunch of paint swatches as you could see in the past post and decided on Porter Paint's Dill.  I painted a poster board so we could see how it would look in different lighting in the room and with the bed quilt. My cousin Adam is going to paint his wall as his birthday gift (thanks Adam in advance!).
Here is Max modeling his sleeping with his quilt. Looks pretty comfy, buddy! I'll update you once we finish/start this! Pin It

Here's to a cool and welcoming overhaul for your kids' room! It should be a great time to assess not only the look and feel of the room, but also the soundness of the appliance, both from an aesthetic as well as a health standpoint. It all depends on how you're going to approach this. In any case, have a good one!

Look into young America for furniture. Great quality but not terribly expensive!
