I have shared my 4 year old’s room before when I posted about Toddler Room Organization, but the existing furniture wasn’t working for him anymore. He had a toddler bed, which basically had the same size mattress as a crib. It was time for a big boy room for Matthew.
We did some window shopping online and I found various pieces that matched the style that I wanted, but none that matched the price point we were looking for. Finally, in a local store we found the right set. We chose this set which came in many colors but we settled on the gray because honestly, not only was it nice but I figured it was the most “forgiving” color. This was a good call because before the furniture delivery personell had driven away, he was already using the bed rail as a car ramp.
We only purchased one nightstand since the room is small and also because we purchased a trundle that opens on the opposite end. Regarding the trundle, I am only storing bedding and wipes along with other uninteresting items inside it. If I placed toys in the trundle, I know that he would be pulling it out all day and I am not sure the bed could take all that “fun”.
All the wall art remained the same. The three pieces above the bed are very lightweight which gives me peace of mind. I am so paranoid about hanging heavy items above beds so I usually opt for light canvas art. The anchor is white cardboard that I spray painted.
On the nightstand I placed his little diffuser. I have diffusers in every room in my home, sans the bathrooms. If you know my 4 year old, you know that lavender is what I diffuse the most in this little room!
His little reading area remained the same but I added his backpack underneath. This is what he will use for school once he starts later this year. The backpack holds a dino and a small firetruck – all the items that he says he needs for school.
Most of his toys are inside these 4 blue bins. I would like to edit the toys even more and get it down to two, but for now this works.
I couldn’t wait to take advantage of all the space that this new bedroom set offered so I filled up his drawers right away. I will do a separate posts on how I organized the drawers and trundle.
And we will see how long this extreme organization lasts. Actually, I can already answer that. It lasted until I turned off the camera. Then he wanted to get dressed like a ninja and pulled out 3 shirts to pull off the look. Sigh. He was a super cute ninja though so totally worth it.
