How was your weekend? My husband went to play laser tag with the kids for Noa’s birthday and they had a blast! Of course I had to stay back with the princess!
I’m finally (well almost) done cleaning out Noa’s room. I’m just planning on taking another trip to Ikea to get some shelves above his new (birthday present) TV.
I could start my house tour this way, because if I wait for everything to be done…you all know it’s never DONE! Always something to change and new ideas.
Here are some pictures:
He loves it and barely wants to leave his room, I guess that’s all that matters. He’s had the grey horizontal stripes for about 3 years and I haven’t grown tired of them yet. I still love them and I could add anything to his room and it would match. As you can see he is a Lego and Star Wars fan. One of his favorite things is the Captain Rex clone (find it here) hiding behind the curtains that Santa got him two Christmas’ ago. Cool!
My favorite piece in his room is the antique bed that he sleeps in. I bought the bed as a 15 year old at an estate sale in France for 30 Franc (France’s old currency). This is the equivelant of paying 25 Euros now which are about $32. What a deal. YES, I was 15 and already interested in this kind of stuff! Unbelievable! The bed is pre-1800s and the most expensive part of it was getting the foam mattress made since it doesn’t have a standard size. It’s shorter than a regular bed and I hope that he won’t outgrow it too soon. Isn’t it gorgeous?
He is a drummer and a really good one too so I always have to find room for his electronic Roland drum set, because he gets private lessons at home. I love listening to him and wonder where he got the natural talent from, certainly not me or my husband.
The Super Mario decals are from Blik (click here), the ceiling sun is from Ikea, the curtains (which I love) are from Overstock, Ikea Expedit shelves on their sides, the curtain rod is from Ikea…. hmmm did I forget anything? Oh yeah and the chevron rug which is actually a blanket, yes a thicker blanket from Marshalls with a rug-on-carpet ani-slip rug pad.
This is what his baby/toddler room looked like right after I took the crib out. So with only a couple of changes he had a “big boy” room. The striped walls over my hand-painted mural made a huge difference. Boy, was it hard to say goodby to my baby’s room.
Tomorrow or Tuesday I’ll be taking a trip to Ikea which is about 45 minutes away from my house, but I always LOVE going!
Talk to you soon fellow webbers. I hope to continue my house tour and work on some more projects.
