1. I found some super soft "microfiber" plaid sheets at "Ross" for just $9/set.
2. The teal blue bedspread is from "Target".
3. A must for protecting your mattress with little ones, the "Aller Ease" waterproof mattress cover.
As luck would have it, I was able to get a bookcase for my sweet little guy to go along with the "big boy" bed. This bookcase used to be mine when I was growing up.
When I was young, I went through a "cherub/angel" motif design phase (it really was popular at the time). Appealing to my "cherub/angel" love, my Mom kindly stenciled a bookcase for me with angels on top. While I still greatly appreciate real angels, the decorative cherub/angel motifs are not on my design radar any more.
My Dad graciously agreed to sand down the "angel" stencil, so I could put on a fresh coat of "boy friendly" paint. I used the "Valspar" color "Vintage Teal" to tie in the color of the bedspread.
Three coats later, my little guy now has a good place to store all the books he loves.
It is so much fun to spruce up a child's room!
