Pottery Barn Kids Inspired Room

For Spring Break we drove down to Georgia.   Our main motivation for going down there was to help my sister-in-law transition my nephew into a big boy room.   She had a list of things she needed my help with.   Armed with my paint sprayer, Silhouette machine and a gift card courtesy of Lowes we recreated the Pottery Barn Kids Junior Varsity Room.   She wanted a room dedicated to her sports loving husband 3 year-old son and I think we did a pretty good job of achieving it.

I had a blast recreating this room for a fraction of the price.   I will break down all the aspects of the room here soon.   But here is where the money went.

My sister-in-law liked the PB Kids Madras Quilt for $139 but settled for the Target Circo Quilt for half the price at $69.

Then she got a hand-me-down rustic bed and dresser from her brother that I painted Olympic Premium Milky Way from Lowes.

I reused this bookshelf from the office and put books and sports paraphernalia on it.

It looks eerily similar to the $299 Cameron 3-Shelf Bookcase from Pottery Barn Kids as well.

In the inspiration picture you can see the scoreboard above the bed which is not sold at Pottery Barn Kids. Rather, it is just used in the backdrop of the picture.

However, we loved the look so I recreated it football style with a vinyl stencil cut from with my Silhouette Cameo, some Kilz Primer and Olympic Premium Paint in Basil Pesto.   This sign doesn’t look big in the picture but it is 3’ x 5’.

The Pottery Barn Holman shelves are $85 a piece.

With a couple of 1” x 4”s, a 1” x 2” and some Minwax Jacobean stain you can get a similar look for about $5 a shelf.

This rocking chair was my father-in-laws.   He used to rock in when he was a little boy.   Obviously that was a million moons ago (right, dad?) so it got a coat of Krylon Satin Almond and a football vinyl sticker my sister found on clearance a while back.   Adding a pillow I created originally for my nephew’s nursery 3 years ago, and it was the perfect piece for a lone corner.

The coatrack was created by Paw-Paw, our kid’s great grandpa.   This was stained in Minwax Jacobean as well and we added few NFL hats for that pop of color.

And last week I showed you the Pottery Barn Kids Knock-off Pennants I made too:

All the supplies were purchased at Lowes:

Kilz Primer

1” x 4” x 10’ pine

1” x 2” x 8’ pine

Minwax Jacobean Stain

Minwax Wipe-On Poly

Olympic Premium Eggshell: Stonington (walls)

Olmypic Premium Eggshell: Milky Way (furniture)

Olympic Premium Eggshell: Basil Pesto   (scoreboard)

Both my brother and sister-in-law were thrilled with the room.   And now my nephew has a room to grow in and can give the crib (toddler bed) to his new younger brother.   Stay tuned as I show you how I painted the furniture and the scoreboard sign.

  7. I am so glad I came across this because we are in the midst of transforming my sons room into a vintage sports themed room as well. I am using the same pottery barn photo as inspiration! Although our scoreboard is not going so well. I need to sand it back down and re-do the letters because the paint bled all over the place. Great job on everything! It looks amazing and you save sooo much money! -Sarah @ Repeat Crafter Me

  8. I think you did a great job. I love bookshelves and the pendant.

  13. This is such an adorable room! I love that plaid quilt and the blue furniture. You did a great job, as always!

  14. I just used so many of the same things for my son’s room using the Pottery Barn room as inspiration – same beddng, same color furniture, and then a lot of great ports metal pieces from Hobby Lobby. My son loves it and I do too!

  15. This looks amazing. I am visiting you via the party at Somewhat Simple. I look forward to seeing you at My Dream Canvas.

  16. Thank you for showing us and explaining to us! the room looks fantastic!

  17. This room is so awsome! You totally rock. Don’t know which room I like the best – the varsity room or the surfer room. Kudos to you for being so creative.

  18. Awesome room! I love it! You are so creative. I am going to transition my younger son’s room and was wondering where you had found the bookshelf. I was also looking at the PotteryBarn version also, but was looking for an alternative. Thanks.

    • Hi Chris, Thanks so much for your sweet words! My sister-in-law actually got the bookshelf years ago on clearance from Pier 1 Imports. Sorry I couldn’t offer you a helpful alternative. It’s a pretty classic style though so hopefully you can find something similar if you look around online. Best of luck!
