After Brayden started to crawl out of his crib last winter we turned the crib into a toddler bed for safety reasons. He soon was outgrowing that too and decided it was time to get him a bigger bed and bigger dresser for his clothes. Since he has a bigger room than Chase we went with a full bed. We found the bedroom set at HOM furniture. It looks a lot like Chases with the book case headboard and drawers underneath but just a bigger size and different color. I went with a sports theme for the bedding even though he's not as biggest sports fan as Chase. Very boy though.
Now that we found the bedroom set the next thing was to repaint the room. Since I had neutral colors in the room from when I did it 4 years ago I wanted to make it look more like a boys room. I kept it easy on Eric and let him kept the red stripe around the room and just made him paint above and below it. We only had to buy 1 gallon of paint too because we had left over blue from Chase's room that would match his new bedding.
Here are pics below.

|This was the only pic I could find of the room before the latest paint job. This was done before Chase's arrival in 2008.|
|Chase helping out with the painting this time around.|
|Of course Chase wants a new bed now too. Here was the first night he wanted to sleep with Brayden but they were too excited to sleep together.|
|Here is an after picture. I haven't hung up all the pictures yet.|

|Isn't he a doll? He uses the head board to climb on and jump onto the bed. Typically Brayden!!|
