E's Big Boy Room Updated

I'm sharing this oldie, but a goodie over on Dixie Delights today.
It sure is fun decorating for the little guy! 
Be sure and visit all the awesome BOY MADNESS on her blog this week!

No Minimalist Here

I'm sure I've mentioned our issues with 
Sneaky E not sleeping in his bedroom.

I am pleased to report,
after a few months of updates...
our big baby boy
is finally sleeping in his big boy bedroom.

Here's a before shot...
 the little cowboy nursery...

Then it became  
the little cowboy big boy room.

And for a little while it was
Big Bed Little Cowboy Bedroom....

And now it is
the "I'm too big for that little cowboy stuff, mom"
true big boy room. :)

We were happy to pass our cowboy goodness
to E's partner, cousin William.
Got to love a little cowboy! 

I had originally planned to paint this room,
but after getting in there...
I realized how much I still LOVE 
this gorgeous denim paint...
after touching up some spots,
I think we're good in there for a few more years.

I'm tickled to have his room spiffed up,
the only thing left to do in there 
is have the hardwood put down!

I'm over the moon
in love with this beautiful painting 
that I found on Etsy...
it looks just like our sweet Lab, Blue!

This Pottery Barn Kids book rack
 has been awesome for us!
Right there in the middle, 
E's most favorite book right now...

Why he loves it so, I cannot say.
But I know that both of us 
can recite the entire thing from memory...
start to finish...
I can think of a few other things 
I would rather be able to remember...

 A man has got to have his space.

This is E's "little office"...
Money, trophies,the holy word... 


My sweet neighbor, Linlee 
monogrammed these shams for me...
they turned out PERFECT

Poor Linlee,
I wear her out with my constant monogramming!!

Now, something I have a hard time with is...

When I first began updating,
I realized that
there was just WAY TOO MUCH 
stuff on the walls & in this room!

I think it's genetic.

these next three pictures 
are so bland & barren.
So clean & neat!! 

Let there be LIGHT!
Sweet P Daddy changed out the 
cheap contractor boob light 
with this awesome pendant.
I am so happy with it!

And here's the debatable spot.

Sneaky E is asking Santa for a flat screen...
 he has pals who have TV's in their room...
he says!

I love that the only entertainment in here 
is from books & imagination.

The jury is still out.

What are your thoughts? 

& I still love this red dresser,
just sayin'. :)

Pretty happy with it, yep. :)
