I wanted to stylize Landen’s new shelves before taking pictures, but—didn’t happen. Oh, well. I’ll take a cue from Monsieur Monkey, and just relax!
I lUv the ReStore, here’s why—
- the storage shelf/now bed wall– $10
- the under bed storage– $20 (his half)
- the EXIT sign– $10
- the swing arm lamp– $5
- the portrait light– $2
- the spigot drawer handles– $1 and $2 each, total $10
- 3 under bed drawer handles– $1 all
Total spent $58! HUge budgetary help!
From the very start, Landen wanted a blue room. He picked out all kinds of blues to show me—ALL variations on navy, o-kaaay. I happened on this blue paint on an ooops rack for $5. It would NOT have been my 1st choice, but I came to really warm up to it. Everyone seems to make the same comment about the color and stripes—“There’s something sort of “Dr. Seuss” about the room. . !“
Asking my niece about a mirror above the dresser, she suggested a chalk board or something instead until he’s older. Hmmmm. . .
When I went to meet up with the Craig’s list guy about the barn board, I saw a metal ring laying on the ground–a ring from an old bathroom sink– $1. I’ll take that. An sos pad scrubbed it up, I cut up a cork board to fit— et, voilà!
I bought an “L” from Hobby Lobby, printed out and decoupaged a bunch of “Landen” pictures in black and white, and, you finally see that $2 portrait light!
The Closet-Wall. The goal was sort of “minimalistic!” So I purposely striped the closet door to “eliminate” any extra “interruptions” in this little room. When the door is closed, it’s just–gone! Even the tv and stand will be gone very soon–in favor of a small 19″ tv that can sit on the shelf or mount on the wall. –Boys and their video games–?!
Before all is said and done, I intend to re-frame the low window, adding a frieze board on top and raising the roller shade. Let’s at least fake it that the window is higher and more architectural!
Opening the closet door you’ll find a very well organized space–well, NOW, anyway! Completely simplified and stream-lined.
it packs sOme kinda punch!
