Parker’s Room….. Vintage Baseball Boys’ Bedroom

301 Flares 301 Flares ×
Happy Friday Friends!!
I can’t believe another week has come & gone! CRAZY!!
Am I the only one who feels like time is flying?!

I mentioned in my post yesterday that Parker has started full days of school this year & that I am slowly adjusting to having just one child at home with me throughout the day. I’ve noticed that I’m able to keep the house a lot cleaner since there is only one child destroying things as opposed to two! And since Parker is gone all day, his room stays nice & tidy! Imagine that?!

Then it occurred to me that I really haven’t shared too many photos of his room here on the blog!  So now that his room is nice & tidy…….Let’s take a tour, shall we?!
 

We moved Parker into this room about 2.5 years ago when I was pregnant with Griffin. I knew I wanted to do a sports theme in his room, but I didn’t want the bedding to reflect that theme! I knew that his room could still reflect a sports theme just by adding some wall hangings & other accessories while leaving his bedding somewhat neutral. I absolutely adore his plaid bedding!  It’s traditional, it’s classic, & it’s just so BOY! I also feel like this bedding is something that can “grow” with him for a while! I could easily change his theme without having to buy new!

The bedding (quilt, shams & two throw pillows) was purchased through JcPenney’s online store. When I bought it, it was on clearance, so I am pretty certain that they don’t carry it anymore. :( The curtain panels were bought at Target around the same time. I bought six curtain panels total, but only used 5 of them. The sixth panel was used to make another set of pillow shams for the bed. The baseball rug was purchased at Kohl’s.

We recently just moved around all of the furniture in his room. The bed used to be on the wall were the TV is, but I am loving it in front of the windows instead! Isn’t it amazing how just moving furniture around can totally change the feel of a room?! Its like a mini room makeover without having to spend any money! 
LOVE it!!

As far as his furniture is concerned, it was purchased online through JcPenney as well. All of the furniture pieces (including his bed) were in his nursery & followed him into his new “big boy” room. The crib we purchased converted to a toddler bed & then into a full size bed. 
Most of all the wall hangings & accessories in this room are from Hobby Lobby.  Everything you see here was purchased there with the exception of the lamp! I bought it at Gordman’s.

Hobby Lobby has tons of sports frames to choose from. I bought several different ones they had available & filled them with pictures of Parker playing ball at one of our local baseball fields. We just took a glove, bat, & baseball helmet with us, and I snapped pictures while him & his daddy played ball.


I printed all of them in a sepia tone to kinda match the vintage style of the decor. I love the way they turned out! Even though these pictures are a couple years old, they are still one of my favorite parts of his room!
The baseball guy was also a Hobby Lobby find….

To the left of the dresser, there is a baseball player decal on the wall that my mom found at Walmart for $4.00 a couple years back. Again, since it was purchased a couple years ago, I don’t know if it’s still available.

The “Little Slugger” pillow was made by my mom & can be purchased in her etsy shop
You can find it HERE.
This “entertainment center” was actually his changing table when he was a baby. Now it houses his TV, movies, books, games, etc.

Another photo taken by myself & frame purchased at Hobby Lobby….
This little table was a project that I made a while back. It serves as his nightstand & is just decorated with some old vintage baseball books I purchased at an antique store & a ceramic baseball glove & ball. 

The base of the table is actually made from an old baseball bat. 
I shared the full tutorial on how to make the nighstand HERE.
And one last look at his room as a whole….
What do you think?!
What is your favorite part about this room?!
Although I am overall pretty happy with this room, there are still a few projects I am wanting to complete! Perhaps I will share some of those ideas & some inspiration pictures with you next week?!
Let’s plan on that, okay?!
Until then, I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!
p.s. I will be adding these pictures to my home tour page

  3. Tonya I am in LOVE with this room! I love the fact that you did a sports theme without going “over the top” with it. The idea you had for the bedding was so smart and not to mention my favorite part of the room. & I must agree it sure does scream BOY! Thanks for sharing this with us, I will have to keep this idea stored away for when I have kids!

  4. Wonderful this room, I Love it¡¡¡ Some ideas: the grass of the Baseball field and a baseball cap. Congratulations… ¡¡¡

    I do not like the bed in front of the window,,,much better on the side,,,just sayin’

  6. I am in love with this room, Tonya!! So very BOY and something that will grow with him, too!
    We just did the big bedroom switcheroo in our house — my college age daughter no longer wanted to share a bathroom with the teenage boys, so she migrated to the guest room downstairs. Then of course, the boys wanted to move. Needless to say, I have quite a lot of painting, re-decoranging to do!
    Enjoy this awesome space!

    PS– the bed in front of the window is inspired. Just sayin’… ;-)

    Just stopping by to say hi and that I read all your posts but most of the time can’t comment ’cause I’m feeding the Coopster.

    P.S. I think I’m going a bit darker with my hair too. I’m scared!!!

  13. I love your little man’s room, Tonya! I’m fairly new to your blog (and love it!!) so I enjoy reading older posts. My favorite part is the bedding…. although I love everything! I’m just in the process of getting rid of our little guy’s Thomas the Train theme and doing a different theme. I wish I could find that same material to make his bedding :) Take care!

  14. I adore this room!
    It is perfect!
    Would love if you stopped by to link this up to my party happening now!
