I’m happy to report that our big boy bedroom renovation is nearing completion!
The wall are painted (Sherwin Williams 7641 Collonade Gray) and the carpets are scrubbed. Whew.
I started with a set of rails I picked up at a thrift store. Then I found a new twin-sized box spring super cheap at my local furniture store. (They beat Walmart’s price!) When it comes to the box spring and mattress of a bed, I’m kind of a stickler about buying new. Blame it on the germaphobe in me, I guess.
This mattress is comprised of the Yoga Comfort System™, an advanced layered system that supports the body by dispersing weight evenly and reducing pressure points that cause tossing and turning. It’s built on four core elements: instant response foam, gel, a breathable foam base and a support base.
I went with Yogabed for a number of reasons:
- Our son was not sleeping well, getting up sometimes five times a night – not an awesome experience for mom and dad. We needed a mattress he would be super comfy on.
- It is affordable. Some of the popular foam mattresses out there are super expensive. Yogabed’s pricing is comparable to regular spring mattresses.
- This mattress comes with a removable, zip-n-wash mattress cover. Love this feature!
- Every mattress comes with free pillows, free shipping and a 101-night, no-risk trial period.

As far as the bed linens, I started with an airplane sheet set and royal blue quilt and sham set I picked up at Target.
I bought the Varsity Plaid Microfiber Comforter for $19.99 on clearance from Boscovs.com.
Then I added this airplane pillow to finish off the ensemble. I’m still waiting to receive a red linen airplane pillow I ordered online weeks ago; it hasn’t arrived in the mail yet.
Our little man absolutely loves his new big boy bed – and room. And his habit of getting up five times a night? Gone! Seriously. He sleeps through the night like a champ now.
What do you think of the new big boy bed?
Special thanks to the folks at Yogabed for providing a discount on the mattress I purchased in exchange for an honest review on the blog. As always, all opinions are 100% mine.
