Well, 8 weeks after installing the hardwood floor and painting it, I am finally showing you pictures of my son's room! We waited quite awhile to put his furniture back in the room because it is very heavy and we wanted to be certain the floor was dry...but, basically, I just had a hard time with the finishing touches in here...boy's rooms are not my specialty! :)
I'm still working on some of the finishing details, but most of the room is in place. I was going for a European look, but still trying to keep Braden's tastes in mind...and he loves to draw and color. So I gave up my petite farm table from my studio and created a little desk area for him...
The chalkboard is a garage sale picture that I just painted right over with some chalkboard paint. The picture was already on a piece of wood so it was super easy to convert it and dirt cheap!
I found the old galvanized farm caddy at the flea market a few months ago and decided, once it was cleaned and sealed, that it would make a perfect storage unit for Braden's room...
He loves his new little area!
Above his dresser, I put up some twine to hang a few of his pictures...we change it out all the time and it was a great way to add some color to the room...
A basket of his favorite books is at the foot of the bed. The dresser and bed match one of the dressers in my room and are family heirlooms on my husband's side...my hubby slept in this bed when he was a little boy as well :)
I love the contrast of the dark furniture against the white floor! I used simple, sheer white curtains to keep everything light and airy in here.
I also used one of the Vantorre Curtains from my shop as a coverlet on the bed for some extra interest...I just cut the ties off of the top. Oh, and I stole Maria's fabulous idea of using a grain sack runner at the foot of the bed for layering on some additional color to the bed.
Grain sack pillow from Dreamy Whites
Sheer white curtains, muslin bedspread, and small bear with heart from Ikea
I'm off to Junk Bonanza early Friday morning, so I hope to be back next week with some pictures to share!
Enjoy the rest of your week!!
