Part of me wonders if it's even worth it to "finish" their rooms because we're going to have to do more shuffling around in the next year when we eventually combine their stuff into one room. We aren't exactly sure when a good time would be to have the boys share a room, but I know it will be around when Easton turns Two.
So since that's a year away-ish, I decided to at least follow through with a couple of the projects I wanted to do for Bennett's room.
The first thing to note is that his room is a boring beige color. First reason for that is because when we bought the house, Bennett's room was purple and Easton's room was royal blue -- so we just hurried and paint the bedrooms neutral colors before we moved everything in. Second reason is that I'm indecisive when it comes to paint color. So there's that. Beige walls it is. I've actually wanted to paint horizontal stripes in there but the more I get to thinking about it, the more I'm not sure it's worth the hassle. Ya know?
I didn't stick to a theme or any specific matchy color scheme. But I did create what I like to call a "classroom corner" for him, including his very own school desk. :-) I just don't want Bennett to outgrow his room so I chose to keep things basic and simple. Anyway, here's what Bennett's room looks like!
These first two are panoramic photos I took with my iPhone, so that's why they look a little bit funky! :-)
The only change we'll be making from here on out is switching out Bennett's toddler bed for a twin size bed. Hopefully we'll get around to doing that by the end of the Summer.

So that's pretty much it for Bennett's bedroom!! It may not be Pinterest worthy but it ain't no thang. All of the decor was actually pretty cheap and I'm happy with how everything came together!
