My son’s room looked like a little kid room.
In many ways, he is a little kid. He’s only 7, and frankly I liked the Disney Cars bedding and curtains and Veggie Tales comforter.
But in many ways, he’s also a big boy, and deserves a room more fit for a 3rd grader.
I had grand visions for his room including a fancy loft bed with a desk and shelves and a fun, yet more grown up feel, but a major furniture re-do just isn’t in the budget for us right now.
But sometimes even small changes can make a world of difference.
This was his room:
Not a bad start for a “big kid” room but still showing some signs of “little kid”.
But with a few quick, easy and affordable changes, his room now looks like this:
A new comforter, pillow sham, bed skirt and window valance and a little bit of magic happened.
He LOVES it.
The bedding set is the All Star Sports Bedding Set from Beyond Bedding and it included the window valence! Beyond Bedding has all kinds of great bedding sets including toddler bedding, kids bedding and even baby boy bedding.

- 1 Twin Standard Sham (20″ X 26″)
- Twin Bed Skirt (Dust Ruffle)
- Window Valance (84″ X 15″)
This set is very striking. The colors give it the perfect feel of “big boy” as does the micro suede fabric. It is soft and comfortable my son actually makes his bed every morning now because he really likes the comforter and wants to show it off on his bed.
It’s amazing the effect a bed shirt has on helping make a more formal, more mature look to the room, and the color combinations are fantastic for adding to that feel as well.
Overall we are very happy with this set and the completely new look and feel it gives to my son’s room. They window valence was a little disappointing in that it was a lot different material than what is shown in the picture so it doesn’t hang anywhere near as nicely as the package. Still a much better solution for him than the Disney Cars curtains!
