Theron's Big Boy Bed

Theron's three years old and since we have a new baby boy on the way [eek!] we thought it the perfect time to switch him over to a big boy bed. 

He has been in his crib-converterted-toddler bed for awhile now...maybe even over a year. He did so well with that transition and thus far has done great with this latest one, too. 

I was hesitant on buying a bed because they are not cheap. I mean, you can find some cheap ones but I didn't want to waste my money on something that wasn't sturdy or that we would have to replace in his teen years. 

I debated between a couple metal beds from Target and Walmart but finally settled on the one I had always loved from West Elm. It has a classic shape, color, and is solid wood so I hope it will stand the test of time. I still want to get him some new bedding but the current setup seems to be working for now. 

We were worried that Theron would roll or fall out since we decided against purchasing bed rails but so far, so good. He happily went to bed the first night and didn't have an issue one. I hope I'm not jinxing us by writing that!

When we first moved in his room looked like this:



Then we transformed it into this:




And now, here it is with his big boy bed:





It's a simple space, but one that our kiddo seems to love!

Love the bed you choose! It looks so good in his room, we also choose a twin bed from West Elm for Avery:) I just knew it was something we'd love long term vs. going with the toddler bed which only serves a very short purpose.

Seriously love Theron's room

This is a beautiful room - and I adore the bed you purchased. What a great wood tone and the style is just so classic - he'll have it forever. (Unless you make him leave it behind when he moves out - SOB - Our babies are going to leave us someday.) ;)

It looks so great! I love how it isn't childish at all but still looks like a space that belongs to a little boy with all the fun colors. That's what I was aiming for in our nursery and will definitely be doing when we transition to a big boy room - I love how well yours transitioned! And the bed is great - love that all the furniture can grow up with him or be used elsewhere in a house just as well.
