When my little guy turned 3, I felt it was time to move out the really baby stuff and bring in stuff that reflected his interests and style, as well as mine. We love vintage and he loves trucks and trains. Luckily, our child has also embraced the vintage and prefers "old trucks" to the new ones in packages. He has a really small room, so storage is important to us. We wanted it to be a fun space, but not too cluttered to spread out and play, so we couldn't have a lot of furniture.
The furniture is all vintage (the tall chest was my grandpa's and then mine) with the exception of the bookshelves which my husband made. We are still looking for a great piece to have more space for books. He also made the chalk art above the bed. I built the teepee and most all the art and accessories are vintage or from etsy. We did this on a pretty slim budget just painting items that we already had or repurposing a old fruit crate to hold books. He loves it and it is a pretty fun room!
