My two little boys are excited to share their new room with you all today.
They think it turned out pretty cool.
The first thing we did was paint a wall in chalkboard paint.
You can see that post HERE.
We have all had lots of fun drawing all over it.
The next thing we did was paint the ceiling, built-ins and trim in the same white as the rest of the house.
After that we painted two of the walls in a great boyish-blue color from Benjamin Moore called,
I ordered the prints of my boys through walmart.com
A 20 x 30 poster cost only $9.99 and then only a dollar something to get them shipped.
I was sooo thrilled when they arrived at my door.
I was worried that they may be a bit grainy, but they were picture perfect!
I framed them in some black picture frames, also from Wal-mart.
I decided to paint the back wall white instead of blue.
I thought it would break up the room a bit and keep it from looking too dark.
I then made the wood shelves that hang above the desk.
I found an old board in the garage, had Jake saw it in half (saws freak me out)
Sanded it, stained it, attached some grey brackets and hung them up.
I filled the shelves up with the boy's sports pictures, baseball hats, an old milk tin that I recently found at a yard sale, a spiderman toy and some shark teeth. The red arrow sign came from a fun junk store here in town.
I found this old wire locker bin at a yard sale as well.
It's a Great Room for 2 little boys.
Thanks for stopping by,
Liam & Jaxon
