A LOOK INTO MY SON'S ROOM & PLANS FOR IT!
WEDNESDAY, MAY 22, 2013
This is what my son's room looks like,
now that his little sis has her own room.
|The bed skirt helped hide all their excess toys.|
He has a jungle/safari theme currently
They had lots of toys between them and keeping the room
tidy and simplified was a difficult task for me.
I can't handle clutter.
I'm a visual person and visual clutter tends to cause me mental clutter,
if that makes sense.
Of course, there are times when so much is going on,
that clutter happens and I can't do anything about it, in that very moment.
So I do my best to not stress over it and
remind myself I will handle it when I get to it.
|Dollar Tree frames & hats. Pictures printed from computer.|
|The desk aka homework spot and computer are newer additions, since my daughter has moved out.|
|I made the lamp with an Asian cone hat, straw skirt and a lamp kit.|
|Ms. M&M was a gift hubby brought from work for the kids.....yay, more stuff lol|
It was part of a display.
My son's room is much larger than my daughter's.
I feel less pressure about doing his room for some reason.
Except I haven't started it yet lol
He made a compromise with me as I AGAIN did not want to do a typical
He wants NASCAR/racing, I suggested racing from different periods,
which would include some retro stuff :)
I'd also like to include some weathered/rusted items.
Here are some of my ideas!
|all photos found online|
My challenge with him as well is keeping true to what he likes/wants
but with a slight variance.
I'd like to include these ideas in doing the following:
Paint the light colored walls the same color as my daughter's room- Stone White I've included a color sample of what the opposite walls already are, they'll be staying that color Remove bed skirt & go through everything under the bed Convert the bed back into a seating area Make/find cushion cover and make throw pillows Thrift a newer comforter for the topUsed 1 we already had Removeor fix small mirrored dresser(if fixed, then paint knobs) Removed
- Paint mirror grayish blue like this Left as isI prefer the 2 left ones
Paint the desk, maybe this will be the rusted item Paint the chairs and reupholster, adding padding and checkered material
- Didn't reupholster but added checkered material
- Attempting to convert his current lamp into a filter one STILL want to do this!
Make a new hanging lamp Finding/making new curtains
- Painting the knobs on the dresser with the TV, grayish blue Left as is
Change out/make a hanging lamp
- Try making my own chalk paint and painting the short oak dresser Left as is
Take Ms. M&M out! Hang up a large racing flag we got from the church sale a few years ago Frame some signed racing pictures hubby got a few years ago Use tool boxes I recently thrifted Hang auto parts we recently found at the flea market Make large auto collage and use my daughter's old frame to frame it. Make a cool mobile with son's banged up hot wheels Hang up son's thrifted race suit we used for his 9th birthday
MAYBE, if hubby can swing it, make a cool rolling tire table, 2 tires high.
In my mind this all sounds great, hahaha
hopefully it's not an overload for the room.
