As you know, I’m on the hunt for a headboard for my son’s room. He is 3 and a 1/2, and I’m currently beginning the transition process from nursery to big boy room! I already cried in the last post. 😉
His crib went to his new sister a few months ago, but everything else is pretty much the same…minus the clutter from all of his toys!
He’s basically stuck in between a nursery and a big kid room, which I posted about last week. You can read that post HERE!
Honestly it’s somewhat frustrating, because it never feels completely put together and always feels messy.
I’ve got to start somewhere, but I’m not quite ready to create a vision board and pick a theme. Although I’m pretty sure it will be ANIMALS, since he’s obsessed!
Are all 3 year old boys obsessed with something?? Is it par for the course? Just trying to separate OCD from normal behavior. 😉
I thought I’d begin by looking for a headboard or bed. A headboard/bed is a great place to start, because it is a strong piece that will help anchor the room and begin this transition!
I’ve been looking at hard-surface headboards (metal or wood) and upholstered headboards. Both have their pros and cons!
I have specific color requirements as well! I’m either looking for a dark metal or wood headboard or a navy or gray upholstered headboard. I want to keep the neutrals in his room, but add a pop of color with some accents, so I’m choosing a neutral color headboard. That way it will last longer in his room, and I won’t have to worry about his not liking a color in two years! Especially since his favorite color is purple right now!
After a lot of searching, these are the headboards and beds that I have been looking at for Finn’s space! I know…eleven is a random number!
