bryce's new room

I'm about ready to put Emmy in a big girl bed.  However, she was in the smaller room and had more furniture than Bryce.  This meant that when we made the change, we would also switch the kids' room.  They were actually excited about the move as long as they got new paint/decorations!  Bryce's only stipulation was he wanted orange because that's currently his favorite color.  After spending some time on pinterest, I found some inspiration that didn't make orange seem so bad, ha!
This room was definitely a Pottery Barn room.  The curtains came from Pottery Barn kids and the comforter came from Pottery Barn teen.  I found the fun lamp (that matched perfectly) at Ross.
I bought the book shelf to add to Bryce's room because I wanted to keep his old one in Emmy's room.  He has plenty of books on the bottom shelf, but I had fun decorating these top shelves.

Bryce is really into baseball right now so I wanted to incorporate that in the room without making it something permanent if he ever changes his mind.

I bought his sheets at Pottery Barn Teen as well.  I got him an American League sheet set and then bought him a set of additional National League pillow cases.  He loves it!  I'm looking for some kind of baseball throw pillows to spruce up his bed.

I found this baseball sign on Etsy, but it was way too small.  Jason insisted we could make our own and we did.  And let me tell you, it was a labor of love!  We took apart an old pallet to make the sign.  Next I painted the white circle and then hot glued red twine on it to look like a baseball.  A friend of mine printed out the quote on her silhouette and then we taped it down and painted it.  I started painting with a brush and is bled too much so we spray painted it instead.  It's by no means perfect, but it's DONE!!
I'm not a fan of trophies because they just collect dust, but Bryce is proud of them!  I decided instead of sitting them all out on his dresser, I would display them a little better.  The picture doesn't really fit the theme, but I thought it was fun!
Bryce is super excited about his room.  We compromised on some things (he wanted an orange stripe and I didn't) and I think it turned out perfectly!  It may be a little while until I get to Emmy's room.
