When Evan was three, I re-did his big boy room and chose a space theme that will hopefully grow with him. Although the kids have a playroom, he plays more in his room now, and we keep his big boy toys in there away from his little brother. I tried to use a more grown up style in the room so that with just some minimal touches, it could grow with him into the teen years.

When Brody came along, I was so excited to do another nursery. I don't mind that he was another boy; I love boy stuff! I guess I was made to be a mom of boys. I wanted a less "themey" and more classic style to his nursery which would also double as a guest bedroom. We already had a dresser and double bed in the room, but it was painted an antique white with brass and gold accents and just would not do for a boy. It needed updating. The bed used to be a four post bed, but we took those off and just added some simple finials to the posts. Then, we painted the furniture a crisp white and updated the hardware with a sleek nickel finish. Well, my husband did this work since I was prego at the time. I still love just lying on the big white bed in the nursery and looking at my precious baby's pictures on the wall. I hope he never outgrows his room!
