Nautical Photo of the Week: Big Boy Bedroom

Remember Courtney from Southern Nest, the wooden monogram store I posted about recently? Well Courtney created the perfect nautical space for her son after he recently transitioned out of his crib and into a bed. Courtney blogs over at Charming Little Nest. There are so many individual projects that went into the room-Courtney will be giving more details over the next few weeks on her blog. First up, the Chippy bookshelf that she restored (to see the step by step go to her blog).

Courtney painted crisp navy and white stripes on the top half of the walls.  Then she put board and batten in his room (HERSELF!)

old pub table she turned into a child-size table and then painted to look like a distressed Union Jack

She painted the dresser yellow, then added navy and white stripes to the top.  Next she distressed it with a little sanding and dark wax

 Tiny sailboats are propped on the board and batten shel

Of course she added a Southern Nest monogram above the book shelf

And a tiny monogram on the side of the book shelf

back of a pew from a very old local church is now a bow tie holder


  1. Such a cute room!!

    Best, Mree

  2. What a clever designer she is!! I just love the whole room. I love the nautical mantra as it just does something for me..maybe it relaxes me :) This room does just that! I'm obsessing over the bow tie holder!


  3. Oh my gosh I love every little details! Such a great preppy room

  4. Oh my word... what an incredibly special room! Everything about it is perfect. I just love it to bits. So glad she shared pictures with all of us.


  5. She did an absolutely spectacular job!
