Welcome to Douglas’ transitional woodland theme toddler bedroom! The inspiration came from my husbands love for the woods. He grew up in a small town in East Texas on a ranch and spent most of his childhood in the forest. Even though our family is currently in the city, I know he hopes to instill that same passion & love for the outdoors, into our children. I am calling this room transitional as he is learning how to sleep in a big boy bed at the moment. He’s been doing great sleeping! Pretty soon, we will get him a big boy bed. 😉
I choose solid and cedar wood for the furniture to give the room a rustic look. I went to my local craft store and picked up the cute decor for the wall gallery. I love these triangle floating shelves, you can put cute little nick knacks in them. When he was little he was gifted a heirloom handmade cedar toy chest. We recently painted it a forest green and plan to do art work on it, with his name.
As far as bedding, I found this adorable set from Target! We transitioned him to a twin bed on the floor when we moved back into our home. Thankfully we had no issues! I think it was a ideal strategy to converting him to the big boy bed because even if he happened to fall out of bed, the floor is right there. I’m linking the bed I would like to get him below.
I love the look of metal and wood together so I got these oversized letters to display his monogram. Did I mention that our Douglas is a FIFTH? Yes, that’s right, DLM #5. Our family still hasn’t figured out what to call him. Mom and Dad still call him Douglas but the family calls him Duke, our friends call him Cinco, and I have also heard Dougie fresh. lol These cute little arrows complete the look for the wall.
His bookshelf, we love. It’s made of 100% cedar and makes his room smell like the woods. When it comes to kids bookshelves, have fun, fan their favorites, put some vertical and horizontal. I like to organize them based on theme; for the seasonal books (such as Christmas and holidays) I put those up top. Don’t forget to secure heavy furniture items to the wall with safety straps or brackets.
I hope you enjoyed looking at this sweet little boy’s room as much as I enjoyed putting it together!
Until next time,
