Good Monday Morning! I hope you had a great weekend and maybe enjoyed some beautiful weather too. Today we are joining Aubrey over at All Things Bright & Beautiful for the kid’s bedrooms portion of Roomspiration!
I am re-posting my little boy’s room that I did back in April before we sold our house and moved this summer. Here is what the room originally looked like, it was really a lovely sea glass green. Let’s just call it a bad paint color choice made while pregnant.
I only have two pictures of this room, I thought I had more but I can’t find them. I think I say that for every room reveal. I really need to organize my photos but that’s another project for another day or maybe another year. Does anyone else throw their photos in a bin and quick shut the lid before they throw up all over the floor? I know Jen at I Heart Organizing just did a photo organizing challenge a few months ago so if you are looking to organize your photos, head over and see her blog, it’s full of great stuff! Back to the room, I get easily sidetracked. Maybe that’s why I have a hard time finishing projects.
Anyways, on to the finished project!
Here’s the before and after:
I didn’t want to spend a lot of cash on this room and I think I did a decent job of that. The lattice strips were $7.38 for a bundle and I didn’t even use them all for this room. The lamp I redid with some jute for $2, the pictures are flight maps that someone gifted to us, the frames for the flight maps were $1 each and are old black walnut door fronts from a store. The picture frames with his name were from the dollar section at Target and I made the letters on our printer, so total for that was $4. I made the flag pennant/bunting thing with some material that cost about $6 total and then strung them on the leftover jute from the lamp. I made the pillow for the bed for about $6, the rug was $17 on clearance at Target and the quilt was from TJ Maxx for $29. The dresser was gifted to us, the cubeicle I purchased for $50 and the fabric bins for that were $18. I purchased two gallons of paint for a total of $52 and the valances were $11 each.
Grand total for this room: $199.00 Woo Hoo!
Now that we are in the new house, I am not sure how I will do his room. I might keep it very similar to this room seeing as we only used it this way for about two months before we ended up moving.
So that’s the tour for today! I’m heading over to visit Aubrey and see what fun stuff everyone is linking up today. I hope you will join me and if you missed the other rooms, just click on the links below for previous Roomspiration link ups!
