D and His New Room

With every passing window a new frame is hung and another shelf finds a place on our walls.. The process of decorating is definitely more fun than the renovation part.. though not so sure if M would agree since he is the one with the hammer.

We started with the master bath and the master bedroom and you can take a click here to get a peak at all the renovating we have already done.

We started with this.. though I of course waited too long.. forgot to do my blogger duty of taking good before pictures.. and by the time I got around to taking the pictures we were at a point in our renovations where we were all sleeping in his room..



Nonetheless this was no cute, fun child room


The room was painted a light barely there purple.. It is his current favorite color and since we don't intend to paint the room a different color every time he picks a new favorite we picked something light, Behrs Permafrost. 


The gross old carpet was removed.. the floors sanded and stained English Chestnut.


A cute purple chevron rug and his old Ikea Kura bed. A map on the wall for my world traveler to mark is adventures.






We choose roman shades for the windows and Ikea spice racks to hold his books. I used a little washi tape to add some color.





Our old chest of drawers went to his room.. and I added some Duck tape to add a little color.



A few cute quotes on the wall to finish the room.. I have one little project still in the works otherwise I am done.. the room feels so much lighter and brighter.. just what a kids room should feel like.


I found these amazing free printables here and here

It looks so nice, Hena. I love that bed, how fun. I wish on a weekly basis, probably, that we had IKEA in NM. I love that you hung a world map in his room. I did the same when my son was about the same age and it was a good idea - at ten, he still loves to look at it and talk about places he wants to visit. I love the duck tape on the dresser knobs, that's a great idea. Nice job!

Hena, this is so cute! I really like the flooring and the new paint color. The map is perfect for a growing boy. I like that there's room to play in there too. I can pictures Legos all over the floor.:)

Thank you for your sweet comment about our pond. It's finished but we have a mess to clean up!

Great job - those floors are gorgeous. And it looks like D has plenty of room to grow. Love what you did with the IKEA spice racks too.

Your little man has a very special room, what a savvy decorator you are to use spice racks for book shelves!
I love that idea and I am going to pass it on to my middle daughter.
Such a timeless look with those gorgeous hardwood floors and paint color.

I so appreciate you visiting me today, your kind comment really brightened my afternoon!

That map is just the perfect addition!

Oh I LOVE it soooo much! I bet he does too.
Living in the suburbs of CA, it is always so incredible to me that you all on the other coast can lift up your carpet and find floors that look like that. I know it was the thing to do at one time, but why in the world would they want to cover them up. When I had floors done a few weeks ago, there was just concrete under that carpet. I was hoping for wood, but no such luck! :)
The finishing touches on the room are too cute and just put it altogether. Perfect!

Looks like the room is coming together so nicely! Love the map!
