Pictures For A Big Boy Room

Transforming Graham’s room into a “big boy” room has definitely been a process.  I feel like it is something that we do a little at a time for a few different reasons.  First of all, money has to be spent wisely.  Secondly, his tastes are ever changing.  Finally, we want to create an environment that will grow with him for several years and not just one or two.

I am so grateful and blessed to be a Gallery Direct Ambassador which means we are able to try out many different pieces of high quality art throughout the year.  I have been stewing over this decision for quite sometime and I am so glad I did!  My final selection ended up being a homerun for the look of the room as well as for Graham’s taste.

If you are new around here, Gallery Direct is an online shop that allows you to upload your own pictures or browse through their massive selection of photos and have those photos/pictures put on several different mediums.  We absolutely love our aluminum piece of our favorite vacation destination: Ocracoke, NC.

So, for Graham’s room I decided upon two vintage stock photos of old cars.  I remember my brother’s room growing up featured magazine pull outs of his favorite cars which inspired me to this.  Graham truly loves just about any type of vehicle and he already had the gorgeous vintage airplane artwork we received last year from Gallery Direct.  I really wanted to pull it all together and I feel like these pieces did the trick!

My original idea was to place them on the same wall a few feet apart where his dresser is located, but once they came in we decided they were so beautiful that they each needed their own wall.  We opted for shelves on the other wall which were definitely needed!

I love the look and feel of the canvas wrap.  It is modern, but not too “fancy” for a little kids room.  I can see Graham loving these on his walls for at least 10 more years.  Hopefully he will love them until college (ok maybe that is wishful thinking).

  1. Hi! I love the canvas artwork you have in your son’s room. The vintage look and the classic cars is really neat. I would like this same look for my twin boys’ nursery. I understand you used Gallery Direct to print these pieces of artwork. What I am searching for however, is the artist who created these images? My father owns collector classic cars and I would love to take one of his photos and have it converted into this style of artwork. I assume this is just stock photography and coming up with the artist might be impossible but I figured I would begin with asking you first.
    Thank you so much for any info! Love your site, your writing and am a new follower today!

    • Hey Stephanie!

      I’m not sure who the artist is. However, you could always use different apps on your phone or even maybe a free online editing to create the look you are hoping for with the pictures you take. I would love to see what you end up doing. Also, thank you for your very sweet words! I’m off to check out your blog :)
