It's been months in the making. Mostly of me stalling on finishing the curtains and deciding on what to hang above his crib, but finally James's big boy room is complete.
The idea was to create a travel themed room for my little explorer. I absolutely love to travel and travel themed pieces are one of my favorite things to collect. When I started dreaming up his room almost a year ago I decided that a huge old schoolroom map would be the centerpiece to the room. I found one on eBay that fit the bill (huge, full of bright colors, easy to read and an actual schoolroom map). It was purchased and the first tick mark was made on James's room.
When he moved from his nursery to his big boy room in December much of the same elements were in place. Over the last few months I've only added the flags above his bed and the curtains that I finally found time to sew.
His room is full of tiny details that just make me happy. Here is only a small glimpse of it.
Sailors Choice Nautical Code Flags. They were super easy to make with felt and my glue gun and they are so special. Not only do the tie in the travel theme nicely, but they spell "I love you."
