Bedroom is Getting a Makeover

The bedroom is used as the playroom. I am slowly converting it to my son's room.


 I love going to consignment shops. I decided to purchase this large iron headboard. I knew it would look fantastic in the room. I also picked up the lamp there. I just added a glass shade from Lowes.

~ Iron Headboard ~
Do you see the potential? I ran back out and came home with a sample of faux leather/pleather.

I painted the iron headboard with many different shades of brown.

This was another find. The pottery was painted red. I just repainted it blue and brown. I may still need to paint the inside blue.

The room needs some cool looking lighting so this baby came home with me too.

 I cleaned it up and used silver rub-n-buff on it.

Here are some of the things that might work in the room.

I painted the walls Ralph Lauren Naturals Popular Island. I decided to get a darker pleather (fake leather) for the headboard.

There is so much more that needs to be done. I just thought you would like to see a sneak peek. This is going to take me awhile to finish.

Thanks for stopping by!

Dee, Your son is going to love it. Your look reminds me of Earnest Hemingway, you know, manly but also well traveled. Does that make sense? Very masculine, but in a very sophisticated way. Great job! Connie :)

The room is going to turn out just darling, or maybe I should say rustic for a boy. I think the head board looks like it is rusty now with the new paint job and I just love it. I think your son is going to be so happy with his new space:)
