This Big Boy needs a new Big Boy room!

Poor Bryce got booted from his room when Sydney was on her way.  His current room looks very similar to his nursery did when he was in there.  Same wall color, same furniture, same decor.  

See all the baby stuff?  It really needs to go.  He is still in his toddler bed and quickly outgrowing it!  The crib converts into a full bed with headboard and footboard, but I have to order the bed rails (at $120 and 12 week delivery time...WHAT?), so I think I might start looking for a twin bed.  That would probably leave more room for play in there.  

Anyway, since he is totally potty trained and starting pre-school, I think it's time for a new big boy room!
The new Pottery Barn Kids catalog came in the mail this weekend, and I just happened to find this amazing room.  Check out the personalized bedding...BRYCE!!!  Coincidentally this is the exact theme I was thinking for him!
Most of this is unrealistic, but I figured if I just started with the bedding, then hit up Hobby Lobby  for the rest, I could get a similar look for pretty cheap.  I really don't want to re-paint the walls, so the buttercream yellow is probably going to have to stay.  Here are a few other ideas I would like to incorporate:
I already found the tin signs at Hobby Lobby in the hopes of using them in his room re-do.  We found several old license plates recently while doing some cleaning.  I thought they might be fun to add in somewhere.    Just need to work on finding a few accessories (and the bed...of course).
OH...and did I mention that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the wood wall in the PB photo?  Reminds me a little of this wall over at Bower cute is this???
Probably won't happen...but a girl can dream, right?

Anyway, these thoughts have been on my mind a ton lately, so I thought I would gather them all in one place.  Besides, this blog post could make a good presentation for Dan when I'm ready to go shopping! ;)

Love that wall from Bower Power! Super cute bedding set. That chalkboard red frame could totally be done DIYed! Look forward to more updates with this...its right up MY alley.

I did a design board from your ideas for the big boy room. Feel free to totally disregard, I just love researching and coming up with more ideas.
