A Boy's Nautical Touch Bedroom: Etsy Edition

Well of course I have to give some Etsy love, right? My son quickly grew out of his crib and went straight to a twin sized bed. I wasn't quite sure the direction I wanted to take with his bedroom, but ever since he was born I've been attracted to navy blue and red for him. I found a quilt from Pottery Barn Kids and sort of went from there. Their sheets are adorable, but I couldn't bring myself to spend so much money on themed sheets I'd probably get sick of (I know, not my bed though, right?). I just went with some jersey sheets from Target, also known as the more affordable route. I added some cuteness with a shark pillow and decided to go the nautical way. Living in Arizona we are the furthest thing from the ocean but it's one of my favorite places to be. Plus, everything nautical is SO cute.

 I started with this rustic wood whale from Folky Birds and Fish, although there no longer seems to be whales :(


And how about this cute surfboard shelf from Marker Six. A perfect little unique touch, without going overboard.




 I spruced up the light switch with an anchor switch cover from Two White Owls. Our light switches need some major updating, but isn't it cute?




Finally I added a photo from Matt Allen. I happen to love his Jack Mannequin designs so I was happy to support his Etsy shop with this "grown-up" surf photo.

Etsy is a fantastic place to get unique items at an affordable price and also support small business owners. It's definitely the first place I check for things nowadays and I can usually find what I'm looking for. I wish I had more space in Micah's room but I'm pretty happy with what I've found so far!
