Moon & Stars Boy Bedroom

By Kate |

This nursery is shared as part of the Real Reader Rooms series sponsored by
The Land of Nod.

This moon and stars bedroom has stood the test of time. Sarah painted and set the theme for this room seven years ago! Two babies later, it’s now a wonderfully warm and cozy room for her son. Sarah is quite crafty and created a lot of the unique touches in this room; you can follow all her craft projects at her blog Frills Fluff and Trucks.

Sarah: My husband and I painted this room 7+ years ago (time flies!) when I was pregnant with our first child. We didn’t know her gender and I dreamed up this paint scheme–loosely based on something I saw in a  catalog. As it turns out, it has worked well for both our children, one of each gender! I love home decor and recently took down 75% of my son’s wall decor, so there are a lot of empty spaces on his walls while I ponder what will work best for us.

His bed and trundle are family projects that we built from scratch using plans from Knock Off Wood.

Sarah: My husband and I made the raingutter bookshelves ourselves and my son LOVES the easy access to his books!

Sarah: The bedrooms in our house are small so there aren’t many toys; we keep those in the playroom–what used to be known as the dining room. I do have his rocking horse in here though. To the right of that is his dresser–it is Cafe Kids from Costco Online and holds so much! The window treatments are multi-layered in a desperate attempt to get him to sleep later. Layer one is a room darkening pull-down shade, layer two is a cute moon/stars window sheer that I bought off eBay seven years ago and layer three is a set of room darkening drapes. None of the layers work, he is an early riser!

Sarah: Under the window is another raingutter bookshelf and to the left of the window I have a little table with a lamp and shade from Target. The chair is a fully upholstered Dutailier glider that reclines and I love it! I have another one just like it in my daughter’s room. I planned ahead with those gliders and bought them in neutral colors rather than the denim fabric I initially was drawn to–eventually I plan to move both of them into either the master bedroom or the family room.

Sarah: I have a small shelf with star cut-outs above the glider that holds extra board books and other decorative items. There are many other moon and star items around the room including a “Twinkle Twinkle” sign from Etsy above the dresser and this moon (from Home Goods 7+ years ago) above the door.

    I love how well this works as a boy room and I can totally see how it would work for a girl too. I wish I had your glider(s). They are so much nicer looking than mine.

    I love this room and you did a great job putting it together!
