I don't usually make design -mood- inspiration - whatever you want to call them - boards, but I decided to make one for the boy's room. Part of the reason I have yet to finish his room, even though we've been in this house for almost 2 years, is because I just keep changing my mind. I thought putting together a board - let's call it an inspiration board - would help me to narrow things down and really put a plan in motion.
I've started re-painting the walls this week.
I made a rash and regrettable decision when we first moved in and painted the walls a not so soothing blue color. Let's just say that even if you find a swatch of fabric that you love and want to paint your walls that color, you should get a test pot of paint before diving right in because the color may look different in the room than it does in your head. ;) Anyhow, I'm back on track finally, and I'm just about done painting the walls a soft grey - Olympic Zero VOC in Moonstone eggshell finish.
Here's the board I put together.
We already have all of the big items on this board. I'm using this furniture from Pottery Barn Kids that we bought for him about 4 years ago (it's the Larkin dresser and chest). The desk we have is similar to this one pictured except that it has a stainless steel top. We bought it at Ikea years ago, and I used it in my craft area at our old house. I already showed you the storage day bed that I "built", and I've come up with a plan for a diy headboard (more on that later). So basically all I really need to do after I'm done with all the painting is to accessorize and hang some art. Sounds easy enough right? Well, it should be if I can ever finish with all the painting! I decided to give the trim a fresh coat of paint and that's why it is taking so long! It will be worth it - that's what I keep telling myself at least.
Now you know what I'll be doing this weekend. What are your plans for the weekend?
