I am finally finishing my post about the major transformation of my son’s room. I originally wanted my children to share a room until we added on to our house; however, that did not work out. I was so stressed out about spending money on another room. I wish I could explain why I did not think about painting my old furniture or simply moving some items from my other area’s of the house – I will never know. The good news is I finally figured out that I could do this and make a beautiful nursery.
We re-used several items from my daughter’s nursery like the crib, rocker, curtains and a few accessories. And then we updated the furniture by painting it a blue-gray that matched the bedding we chose perfectly. Lamps came from the old guest room, as did the mirror that we updated. My mother made the pillows out of some fabric I had lying around.
The photos we hung in his room were meant to be in our living room, then moved to the kid’s shared room, and then they set the theme for Archer’s own room. It is amazing what I found lying around the house to make a complete room. The biggest win for me though was keeping my daughter’s furniture unisex and classic. I also really love Ikea, as I get all of my frames, book shelves, and bins from there.
