Rett's Big Boy Rom

Back in March, I shared our plans for Greta's "big girl" room which will hopefully happen soon after we find a new house (fingers crossed on that front, the market in the Boston area is crazy town right now!) but I thought now would be a good time to share what I've pulled together for Rett's next room.

To be brutally honest, his room really hasn't changed since it was highlighted on Project Nursery when he was just a few months old. We've swapped the crib for a bed, switched out the dresser, moved the chair to Greta's nursery and rearranged slightly but other than that, it's essentially in the same state as it was in 2009. Until recently, our little guy was reticent to let me change anything but since his discovery of -- and subsequent obsession with -- Star Wars Legos, he's very eager to have a new space that will let him display his many mini-figures, AT-ATs, starships ... you know, very important stuff.

I'm not going to lie, it's been an interesting conundrum for me to find ways to include the Star Wars and SW Lego items without the room feeling "themed" (there is little that I like less than a themed kid room) but as ever, etsy and all the creative genius it houses came to the rescue. I was able to bring in artwork and display capability without the room going too crazy. And once he's moved on from Legos, it'll just be a matter of changing out a few things to keep up with him. Well, that and a whole lot of energy.


Here's a breakdown of everything we're hoping to include in the space (obviously, what actually goes in there will depend on the room he actually gets in the house we hope to find):
