boys owl bedding

A little update to the boys bedroom (see more about their awesome hanging beds and new bedroom here and here), a refresh on the bedding! FUN!

On a quick trip to IKEA (unfortunately is was a speed-shopping-kinda-day, and since IKEA is a 2 hour drive (one way) for me, I really try to go when I have time to appreciate it and waste a lot of time. However, my most recent trip wasn’t as planned and I was rushed (maybe a good thing… I spent less money!).

While there I picked up some bedding for the boys room. I was totally smitten with this owl-spider web-moon-dark coverlet.

This is my first bedding purchase from Ikea. I’ve been tempted many times, but usually I resist, however this time I was really loving this bedding. Not sure why I liked it so much, it’s sort of different, but the dark navy sky, with stars and owls… so cute (bedding is a dark navy color, picture makes it look like a bright blue). I do have to say, after washing and putting on the boys beds, it is NOT soft nor is it “nice against the skin” as stated in the add. I guess if you’re comparing it to sand paper, then yes, it is soft.

Once the bedding was on (and I also purchased the thin comforter, twin size, from IKEA to go with the coverlets) it looked better than expected! I totally LOVE this bedding! I love that it’s original, it is fun, and it’s not bulky or overwhelming, which is perfect for the hanging beds. Total WIN!

And since I’m sharing the new bedding, I thought I’d snap a few pictures of the boys enjoying their dual purpose beds (aka reading nooks). So far, so good. The hanging beds have been a huge hit with the boys and with their friends. Everyone who sees the boys room loves it and can’t say enough about how cool it looks.

Here are some sweet photo’s of the boys enjoying their reading time before bed (and snug in their new, cute owl bedding)…

And one last shot of the room at dark, with two sweet boys reading in their own, special spots. Sweet Dreams!
