I feel like we've been in a mad dash to get things done before the summer hits. We plan on doing a lot of relaxing this summer so it's been catch up time on the house projects. One thing we wanted to get accomplished was our son's room.
I forgot to take official "before" pics until after the room was already emptied but trust me, it wasn't all that exciting. There was a toddler bed, a plastic toy box and a train table that he never played with and took up too much space.
Oh and there was also carpet which we took up and much to our surprise, the hardwood underneath was in great condition!
The walls, doors and trim were all painted the same color, a light brownish tan that was entirely too dark for the room.....
Here's a peek at how it is now. I'm not done decorating yet but it's coming along! He loves the wall we did in floor to ceiling chalkboard paint....
This shelf is huge and sits on one whole wall. I'm waiting on a large map that I ordered to hang above it.
He loves superheroes so the sheets are Spiderman and the sham is from Pottery Barn. I had it personalized because, with his unique name, it is impossible to find anything with his name on it. I still plan on ordering a navy star quilt from PB Kids when budget allows.
Wall sconce is also from PB Kids. I took some frames and made a collage of pictures and his artwork for above the dresser.
Wall color is called Mineral, it's from Behr's new paint and primer in one. The fabric bunting came from this store: Jump Up And Down .
His furniture was my moms when she was young. I'm so glad she held onto it, I think it's special that he has it now. I made the mistake of calling it an "antique." Oops, sorry Mom!
He loves his room and I was surprised at how fun it was to decorate a boys room. It can be hard to find inspiration whereas adorable girl rooms are overflowing.
I'll share some more photos when it's all done!
