H's room started out brown.. a milky coffee brown. The walls, the trim, the doors.. they were all painted the same color, the carpet a lighter variation of the same.. By the time I remembered that I forgot to take pictures the painters had already started spackling.
In the meantime the carpet was ripped out and the floors refinished. During the refinishing process we learnt a few things too.. beneath the carpet on the hardwood floor we discovered these stains
Turns out the previous family's pet liked to use this room to relieve itself. :( Yup.. gross. We were told that sanding the floor should reduce the stain but they could not guarantee that it would go away.
Yay for us the stains were barely visible after being sanded... the sight of freshly sanded floors is amazing.. so clean and new. We picked Behr's Permafrost; a pretty light blue for H's room.
His chevron rug matches D's except it's blue.. he inherited our dresser and the rest of his old furniture found it way back to his room.
Ikea Spice Rack book shelves and some cute transportation wall decals helped finish the look
