The day has finally come!!! We’ve completed Tucker’s boys bedroom remodel. Our baby no longer has a closet for a room…he has a real honest to goodness bedroom!!! Woo Hoo!!! We keep kidding with Tuck that he went from worst to first. Even Bennett said WOW the first time he saw Tucker’s room finished. Bennett can’t wait till we start on his room, his attempts to talk Tuck into switching rooms with him failed…Ha! even a 4 year old knows how cool his room is:-).
To start back at the beginning here is what the room looked like when when we moved in, as you can see it really was a closet.
Can you believe that is the same room?!!! Crazy! Honestly the final reveal was even better than I imagined. The first thing Jason did after taking down a lot of the half closet walls was put up the bead board ceiling.
I love how clean and bright it looks. We kept the bunk bed ladder from the bigger boys original bunk beds.
We added lights and outlets to each of the bunk beds so Tucker and whoever is in the top bunk can read at night:-). Now everyone wants one at their bed! Jason added more bead board to the bottom of the top bunk as well.
Jason installed and finished the wide pine floors and made the built in bunk beds and made custom closet doors. Don’t they look amazing? We love the new wide pine floors. We chose a light warm stain to brighten up the room. The dresser we found on Craigslist. I love my Craigslist finds! I am not sure about the faux denim look but the size fits perfectly in the wall and the depth is small so it doesn’t protrude into the room too much allowing lots of floor space for Tucker to push his cars around :-).
Jason made a letter sign using the old wood sheathing from the house leftover from when he put the window in. It’s one of my favorite things in the room! I love the history and look of old wood. The letter is from Pottery Barn kids.
There was no window in the original closet. Here is that before,
So we added one and Jason made the built in bookcase and window seat.
Tucker and I organized his books and cars and brought in some playmobils. It is so nice to have most of his toys in his room.
The beautiful pine hutch fits perfectly in the old closet nook we kept. Tucker’s hot water bottle is hanging on the hook. There is no better way to stay warm in the winter than a hot water bottle in your bed! It’s from Restoration Hardware. I bought a wood truck mobil about 4 years ago from Pottery barn outlet and have been waiting to hang these wooden trucks on the wall. I love how it turned out!
The picture on the wall is an old paint by number painting made by my dad!!! I love it! We brought Tucker’s red chair up to his room so more of the kids can hang out together:).

Jason made the barn door out of 2 1/2 pallets we had sitting in the garage. The kids almost always keep their doors open so a sliding barn door made the most sense and adds so much character to the room. The barn door hardware turned out great and we would recommend it. We purchased it from amazon * affliate link*: 6FT Black Country Barn Wood Steel Sliding Door Hardware Closet Set Antique Style
The train shelf and train we picked up when the big boys were little from the Strasburg Railroad. It’s Amish made and I debated on painting it navy but I like that the natural wood ties in with the rest of the wood in the room. A few people have asked us what our next project is…We are still deciding:-).
Jason still has some patching and painting to do after our frozen pipes🙁 and I would like to finish the floor in our master bedroom and stairway while Jason would like to start on Bennett’s room:-). Please check back to find out what we decide on;) and thanks so much for stopping by to see what we have been up to! 🙂
