Cai's Big Boy Bed Design Idea

Well, it looks like we are getting to have a climber on our hands. He hasn't climbed out of his crib yet, but I'm going to go ahead and set up a twin bed in his room for him to get used to before we make the big big boy bed transition. He climbed out of the pacnplay today 3 times! So, I'm sure the crib is next.

I've got an old vintage hand-made navy and white quilt that I am going to use for his bedspread. I'm hoping to get a few yellow spots out of it... any ideas? 

It's perfect timing, because we just moved my grandparents and they had an extra twin bed that they didn't need in their new house! THANK YOU, Nana and Grandpa!

The bed only has the bottom frame, so it is the perfect opportunity to do a DIY Upholstered Headboard. I used my PR&P giftcard and got these two fabrics to use in his room along with his window fabrics.

This is his room right now:
 But, imagine some toys on the floor, of course!

We will continue with the nautical theme and work with what we already have. It's a little "Americana" but I think it will blend well with what we have going on in there. I'm excited to have ordered this fabric and have a new project to work on soon!
