Hello to you my friends!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend and were able to soak in as much summer as you could.
I know as we enter fall our friends down under are getting ready for Spring and I hope the warm sun is brightening up your days.
My kids went back to school today and I have to say that it is a bit odd having the house to myself.
Don't worry, I will get used to it....... :)
So this morning I took advantage of no kiddos around to finally take some photos of the shark room!
(sorry about the photos, his room faces north and we live in the woods so not much natural light comes through)
I can't believe this has taken me all summer and to be honest I am still not done.
I have a few more projects up my sleeve for the room but I won't drag this out any longer.
Here is my son's room before......
He LOVES Disney's Pixar Cars.......
like, lives and breathes them!!
But his room was so dark and so cluttered and when I presented him with the idea of a shark room he took to it right away.
So I didn't ask again and went to work......
And after much work and long and drawn out posts about it
here is the
The bed and dresser were painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Aubusson Blue.
Walls are painted in Glidden Simply White.
The rug was picked up at Walmart for $20 and the gray blanket on his bed is from Target for $14.
I hung two shelves from Lowes on one side of the window and put the PB knock off shark painting and another PB knock off crab painting on them.
The adorable stool is what I picked up from Laurie and Debbie's booth at the Flea Market. Laurie painted it a beautiful white and the top is wicker.
The yellow basket was another purchase from the Flea Market a couple months ago that was supposed to be a pendant light but hubby is "not sure" how to put it up.
I still have to put up some things on this side of his room.
I have these amazing shark prints that my dear friend Sandra sent me that I will Mod Podge on some canvas and hang and I also want to attempt a barn door for his closet door.
We will see how that goes.
So there you have it, the long awaited, hopefully-not-to-disappointing
I love how it turned out, it is so much brighter and just feels cleaner and most importantly,
the boy really likes it. :)
