One Room – Finished!


If you remember, I’ve been working on my kids rooms recently. Well, I’m finished my son’s and thought I’d show it to you. Now, keep in mind, this is not an Extreme Makeover moment, but I’m pleased with it! This is from one angle:

And from the other:


Thanks for looking! Now, what am I most proud of? Well, when I picked the colours I realized that the wall colour and colour of the wood on his picture frames was almost the same. Solution? Choose three colours, red/green/blue, from the quilt and paint squares behind them to make them “pop”.

Also, finding curtains is such a chore for me. What to do? Take my old denim (Ralph Lauren too!) duvet cover and cut it in half. I used little clip tabs on top and, voila, curtains!

Lastly, my FAVOURITE part of his room is his sport ball artwork over his bed. I picked up the frame at Ikea and it had a picture in it but was on clearance for $4. I ripped out the picture and chose three colours of SU cardstock that matched the room – Creamy Caramel, Ballet Blue and Mellow Moss. I then put in three foamy balls from the dollar store and closed up the frame. Here is a close up:


Stay tuned – I’ll have my daughter’s room to show you soon!
