I really need to get my butt in gear and make things happen in my casa. One of the only ways for me to commit to getting “thangs” done is by participating in a challenge. So I decided to enter the $100 room challenge hosted by Erin from Lemons, Lavender, and Laundry. The direction I plan to go with this room is everything Wes Anderson. I am a huge fan of his and have already worked on some projects for this room that were inspired by him, check here and here.
I am making over this room for my son. It went from a disastrous red color to a pale blue. I even showed off a bit of it when I shared my “make-shift” office/study using World Market products. We used it as a study for a while, but as spring and summer are rolling around, we really needed to turn it into a bedroom because we plan on having guest over to stay. My son’s room will be somewhat of a multi-purpose room. It will be his bedroom, a guest room, and the kids tv room. We (the mister and I) are normally opposed to having any TV or electronics in the kids room but since we do not have a playroom, we have to make due with what we have. In other wards, they are making a huge mess when they watch TV in our main living area and it is driving me bonkers.
*SERIOUSLY, that red is awful. I don’t know how many homes I scrolled through when we were looking that had red rooms and bathrooms. ugh…
This is the darkest bedroom in the house and was originally a part of the formal living room. That is why the window is backed up to the wall. Crazy, huh? The walls have been painted already and 95% of the items in the room I already own prior to this makeover. The only thing I plan to really purchase for this room is the bedding. I really want a bench in this space, but it will push me over budget unless I find a second hand one. I will be on the lookout…we will see. Be sure to come back weekly to see all the room updates.
