Well, I'm trying to finalize decisions on Nate's bedroom. He just turned 10 and my big gift is to get his room complete for an all american boy theme. The comforter on the right is his old (since he was like 3) twin bunk blanket (he is very attached to it). On the left is the new one I found this week at TJMaxx, it is a double and fits the current bed. It even had 2 shams which the 1st comforter didn't have. They are both Ralph Lauren. I love his bed and he loves his bed it is a french antique. I've only tried like 6 comforter sets on him and he ix-nayed every one of them over the past year. It has to be soft, fluffy and down comfortable for him or fortget about it. lol
inspiration for the redo. I got a Ralph Lauren navy paint to match the new comforter but he is thinking red or green too. I will cover that sponge paint nursery blue with it. I also got a taupy/gray from the new comforter and will paint above the chair railing. I guess I could stencil red or white stars every so often for a border and some words like are on the frame. He painted that flag in Kindergarten and I love it. He is my artsy kid.
Well, this photo looks terrible but that big black whole is my fav dresser that we moved in here where his bed use to be. I gotta decide whether to paint it or re-stain it. Any help??
I loved his bed here because it had a tree-house feeling and the eves of the roof makes a nook. But, hubby and santa had other plans you'll see in a second. Hubby custom built these bookshelves for the nursery and I need to clean them up with great cubbies and baskets for his toys and stuff. I love this room it has wonderful baby memories and it was my craft room and now it is Nate's personal pre-teen space.
My mom and I are making a cornice with old swatches of denim and red and blue flannel shirts that the boys wore when they were littler. won't that be nostalgic. This nook is 1 of the neatest little corners in our home.
And here it is. My nemesis!! My girlfriend and I had worked for 1/2 a day on this closet and hubby changed the whole room around so the tv and Wii could live here....uggghhhh. I gotta work around it to stay happily married. I would like to paint out the closet since it'll be open a lot. I just did my 1st Wii fit yoga session last night and am thankful for it!
Any advice might help me stay sane...always a delicate balance for an anxiety girl.
