This fall, I will be working on making over a room in my home. I chose a room that was once our precious nursery, but quickly became a guest room, then my oldest son's room. In the hustle and bustle of moving the boys' rooms around, I never quite got done with decorating this room. This son collects bones and artifacts that he finds in the woods by our home. Those "collections" pile up in his room. I just threw out some random tooth in my washing machine yesterday.... Ahhhh, the life of a boy mom.
As embarrassing as it is, I am going to show you what the room looks like RIGHT NOW. Keep in mind this is my 11-year-old, hunter/gatherer's room. He is not my tidiest of children.
We purchased this bed frame a few months ago off Craigslist and I quickly wrapped some material around the box spring.
I actually cleaned and organized his bedside shelf and desk FOUR days ago. You would never know.
The dresser is left over from my Shabby Chic Vintage Nursery. It is original paint and original glass hardware. My son hates it.
The pale blue window treatments are also leftover from the nursery. They have a blackout liner, which make this room dark and cozy for my sleepy tween. My son is begging me for Camouflage walls, bedding, and window treatments. Hmmmm. What do you think?
I have some handsome details in mind for this room! I will be working on it for the next six weeks and popping in here and there to give you an update.
In the meantime, go see what my blogging friends are up to in their spaces. I am anxiously awaiting their final reveals.
Thank you to Cassie, from Primitive and Proper, for hosting this "Fall in Love" series and including my blog among these fabulous blogs.
