Scraping the popcorn off the boys’ bedroom ceiling started a whole room revamp. Well, revamp implies we did something in there before. Which we didn’t. Other than hanging curtains and adding furniture, this room was untouched. And super boring. Now we’re working on making it a fun and happy place for our two rowdy boys.
1. Anjou Pear: Surprise, I’ve already painted the walls. And the color is brighter than the swatch looks.
2. Drexel Dresser: This dresser just makes me happy. Perfect for now and can easily transition to adult furniture.
3. Gray and White Stripe Curtains: Add a fun large pattern and the neutral colors keep the bold walls in check.
4. Magical Thinking Triangle Chain Rug: Another fun pattern in neutrals to balance the walls.
5. Fjellse Bed: Not having an Ikea near by means we won’t actually have these beds, but they’re the inspiration for a DIY version.
6. Fun fabric found on clearance at least a year ago: For another pop of color, I’m pulling this fabric out storage. The green-yellow is nearly identical to the walls.
7. Microfleece Blanket: For sophisticated color, I’m using navy accents, blanket. Actually, not this blanket because I found super soft throws at Costco for $9.99 each.
8. Threshold Down Alternative blanket: Ivory quilts are a soft backdrop for any bedding we want to use. I’m thinking of it as a blank canvas to add splashes of color and pattern on.
9. Gray Grid sheets: Apparently extra long twin sheets are rare. Target saves the day with their dorm bedding.
10. Modern Kids Movie Posters: Though it’s tough to decide. This Batman one is awesome and Ev is obsessed with Batman. Modern movie posters seem like a happy middle ground. Favorite movies and characters of the boys’, modern to seem less commercial.
11. Constellation Embroidery: Another navy accent. Bonus, it’s educational.
