A few weeks ago, my son and I spent a whole week redecorating my grandson’s
bedroom. My 7-year old grandson and my 3-yr old grandson would be sharing a
room. After ruling out bunk beds, my son and daughter-in-law decided on two
That meant two mattress sets, two sheet sets, two quilts, two blankets….
you get the idea.
We had decided on a nautical theme. Primarily, because the color scheme of
red, blue and khaki would allow them to grow with the room, with some simple
bedding and decor changes. So, I sat out designing the bedroom with this in
Initially, I found these sheets at Pottery Barn Kids.
These were perfect. As in the perfectness of all perfectnesses. THAT Perfect!
Both my boys have this fascination for all things shark. Don’t ask me why… it’s
a “boy thing” I guess. 🙂
Perusing the PK Kids site even more, I just knew this bedding collection would be
perfect for the look we were going for.
Ok, sheets check. Bedding, check.
Wait!!!! Uncheck! Uncheck! I had to remind myself it was Bedding x 2.
While I love Pottery Barn and Pottery Barn Kids, my debit card was having an
anxiety attack just thinking about the total cost.

I found this bedding at Target.
Not too bad, I was thinking. It was pretty darned close.
And with a considerable savings by combining the Pottery Barn shark sheets,

fabulous product, and best of all… I love how it will help protect the new
bedding and mattresses, too. That’s a win-win-win.
It’s called GoodNites Disposable Bed Mats.
Have you heard of these? My little Roo has an occasional accident, like all little
boys and girls do… so these are perfect because they are super absorbent and

You can lay it right under the fitted sheet on top of the mattress…
I love that all four corners have adhesive backs which allow the mats to stay
You can also place them right over the top of the sheet …

we are out and about.

I can’t wait to reveal the finished Boy’s Bedroom Project. Just a few final
touches and it will be done! Why do the final touches always take the longest?
I promise it will be a shark infested, pirate-chest filled, seashell explosion,
nautical good room. Aye, Matie!
