{Ryder's Room}

I am very excited to share Ryder's room. I love his space. 
Right away I knew I wanted to do a superhero theme room with more of an old school vintage theme {as we were re-using the rocking chair and dresser that Justin distressed for Delainey's nursery}.
It took a little convincing as Justin didn't want it to be too much about his 'likes' but after I showed him some of my ideas he agreed. Plus I think it's nice to have a room for our boy that has parts of his Daddy's passions - comics and bikes. :) Come to think of it - those 2 things are already some of Delainey's favorite things too!
His room is a very typical square room - not fun little nooks and cranny's like Delainey has so it made it a bit harder to fit all my ideas in and in the end we didn't have room for a little gallery wall like Delainey has.
But it turned out to be a fun little room for our Ryder.

We re-used Delainey's crib. 

Justin wanted to paint another striped wall like he did in Delainey's room so I said have at 'er!
He painted the room the same grey as Delainey's room as well.
{Initially I wanted a wall made of old wood or pallets but he kiboshed that idea! ;)}
I do just love how the wall turned out and the dark blue color.

Instead of an entire wall - I found a pallet DIY project to do. Hardest part was either tearing apart the pallet {which Justin did for me} as it was really dry or drawing the batman symbol on to the wood {which I also made Justin do}. 
And he took this job very seriously. He used math that I didn't even understand in high school. ;) I love my nerdy hubby.

 I learned I don't love hammering hundreds of little nails into wood and my fingers hurt for days.
But do love the finished product.

We asked her to come up with something for Ryder's room that included all of us like Delainey's tree and she came up with this:

I LOVE it. Watch on my Instagram for a giveaway for her shop to come!
