The House: Kid Room #1

I know I said I wanted to go in order, but honestly order can go one of two ways.  I can show you the dining room, living room and playroom, or I can show you the kid’s rooms and guest bath.  I decided to go with the kids rooms first then work our way back.

So…Asa’s room.  Well, he originally started in what is currently the nursery/guest room, and when we had Mason we moved him to what was the guest room.  My inspiration (or blatant rip off) came from Thrifty Decor Chick (for some reason I can’t get a direct link to the actual page, so click on the “Our Home” link at the top, then the “Big Boy Room” and scroll down about three blog posts.).

I totally loved the way she framed out the walls to create a point of interest.  It was a really beautifully done room. So here it is (at least my version of it):

BEFORE:

Yep, those walls are as nasty as they look. Pretty sure the previous owners were smokers.  See that bottom left picture?  You can see the stains on the walls from where there were posters. SO NASTY!

AFTER:

Here are some bigger pictures:

The bookshelves are laminate but redone with this Crate and Barrel Knock Off DIY from Dittle Dattle. My dad built the bed for my brothers and when he moved gave it to us. The bedding is from Pottery Barn Kids and was a gift from my mom to Asa. The train sheets are no longer available. I bought the frame at Tuesday Morning ages ago and painted it white to work with the room.

The dresser was mine from when I was a little girl. The table and chairs were a Craigslist find. The airplane was a gift from my mom. The bookshelves are decorated with different books and toys we have acquired over the years. The rug was from Goodwill.

(There are framed pictures on the wall now, we just had these pictures done before they were up).

All the pretty pictures were done by Courtney Miller of Courtney Miller Photography. Thanks girl for making our house look good!
