Boy's Bedroom Makeover

My little man turned 3 and I wanted to update his room!

I was inspired by the storage from Kate over at Outnumbered with her toy room makeover.  Didn't she do an amazing job!

I used the following plans from Ana White - there was the Open Base and then the cubbies.

Here is a bad before - I forgot to take a before - before I started painting.

Then I got painting:

Then I finished the closet:
Here is the before.

Then I added the closet:

I added a few signs that I made with my cricut.

Then I got all the boards cut - and then painted....

Then I put it all together!

They each have the cubbies storage inside.

He has a little reading nook - I made the shelfs too - guess from who - yup - Ana White - I just made them shorter to fit.

 I made the step stool from Ana White's plans here:

I made all three sighs.  The Truck, Bus and Car, the Star Wars and the Alphabet.  I spelled out M-I-K-E-Y in orange.

I have to say - I am super proud of his room! The investment for the closet was around $120, I had paint on hand.  The investment for the storage for the toys was about $220 - that included the bins, sheets of plywood (I used cabinet grade plywood - I wanted it to last), wainscoting, the totes, hinges, and knobs.  It took a little over a week - I painted it before it was assembled, and sanded in-between each coat of primer and paint.

So let's take a look again at the Before and Afters:
