Room decor for my Son

My husband and I decided it was time for my son Aiden to have a big boy room (he turned 3 in November). We painted his room a taupey brown (pecan sandie was the name of the color) and bought a Jr. loft bed. Since the room is so small this was a great space saver, we can fit a small dresser under it in the future if need be, but for now it is a great play area ~ sort of fort like, which he LOVES.
So I gave the Big Boy a few theme choices ie; cars, jungle animals, trucks or dinosaurs.... He choose Dino's & I am so glad he did because Michelle (Designs on Cloud 9) has this adorable pattern set called "Dino Mite"
I took 4 12x12 canvas' painted them black & then built 4 coordinating scenes on them to hang on his wall.
I just LOVE how they turned out.

Once his room is totally completed I will post photos. We still need to find him a chest of draws (Geez, I have not been able to find a decently made & affordable piece of furniture in is just not made as well as it used to be) and my Mom is finishing up his curtains. They are coming out so cute.... I wanted Primary colors and it is very difficult to find nice curtains that have a dino print in primary colors, they all seem to be green, brown and yellows. So we bought a blue sheet from Walmart & I found a dino print fabric at a local fabric store (a little expensive per yard) so we bought a little bit of two different print fabrics to make a border on the solid curtain and Mom is putting together his curtains.
Thanks for visiting!
Hugs, Staci
