Bennett's Nautical Room...

Back in the winter, not knowing if we would move or not, I decided to change up Bennett's room. If you haven't noticed by now, I like to change things up...often;)

But I've always loved the nautical theme for little boys and while browsing in the Christmas Tree Shops, all of this nautical stuff caught my eye. If you don't have a Christmas Tree Shop near you, you need to find one! I have no idea why it's called the Christmas Tree Shops but they have the cutest things and their prices are unbelievable!

Anyways, no before pics because again, I'm too lazy. But you can go here if you'd like to see some befores.

Here's his new nautical room! He has the hardest room to take pictures of but I did my best.

Bennett would like to welcome you!

This "B" plaque is from Hobby Lobby and I found the nautical fabric at Joann Fabrics.

Cute little knobs are from Hobby Lobby as well. I'd love to paint this armoire a burnt red one day!The items above the chair are from Christmas Tree Shops- I think they were $3 each! The little boats were from there as well and were $3 each too. The lamp-Christmas Tree Shops-$12. The fun red and white striped window panels were a Christmas Tree Shops find as well and just $6 each! I also have these on our gazebo thing in the back yard.

Bennett loves to crawl over to his big red bin, grab a book and curl up in his chair to "read".;)
The book ends... you guessed it, Christmas Tree Shops! I think I paid $3 each for them and the big red anchor in the back was $8.

Well it wouldn't be a proper post without the proper "smile arms" from Bennett! Oh and those oars in the corner...Christmas Tree shop-$4!! Bedding is Pottery Barn-love madras!

So there you have it and soon enough he'll be in his new room but it will be staying in this theme for quite a while;) I would love to do his new room in some shade of blue with a fun stripe or two of white with a darker blue, green or red. I need to look at some inspiration pics first.

Enough pictures mom, can you please take me out of my crib?
