boy's room sneak peek...


I promised a peek at the progress on Detail Boy's room, so here you go...
unfinished, unstyled, and unmade bed,
but SO close to being finished! 
We won't meet our Friday deadline to have it completely crossed off our list
because we're still waiting on some artwork we've ordered. 
I'm hoping for next week, but the largest piece is coming from Hong Kong,
so we'll see, it's just a poster.

Paint - Behr's Mined Coal

Ikea Mellby Chair


Ikea Rug - Wouldn't this be a great pillow? 


Ikea - Besta Inreda Nightstand
 The coordinating cabinets above the bed are being installed tomorrow.
Sorry bad lighting, the paint reads charcoal like the photos above.


TJ Maxx - Lamp
Still needs client approval, but I'm betting it gets a thumbs up.  


Bedding, all ironed and ready to be styled with these pillows!


DIY Artwork - Tennis Match
(this was our first try, we improved!)


DIY Project from our Ladder


Mr. Simple, would you help me take our ladder apart, please? :)


Check in tomorrow for the details on what became of the ladder.
Btw, anyone have a ladder for sale? Ha! Seriously though!

Oh wow! It's looking amazing. He's got to be tickled pink. ha! ha! Okay, just tickled. Seriously, I love the dark and moody vibe you're creating.

I'm really looking forward to see what becomes of the ladder!

Yay! Looking good - and if Detail Boy does not approve the lamp then I'll take it. I need a lamp for my side of the bed. I love the wall color and the chair and the fabrics - it's awesome. I'm thinking the ladder is going to be turned into a few tack board type of things - where he can pin up stuff he likes. We've got so many old ladders in our garage - they were there when we moved in. They left everything in the garage - lucky us? This looks great though - can't wait to see more.

Loving it so far Pam! My poor son is almost 14 and his room still looks the same as when we moved into this house 7 years ago when he was 6!
You know how it goes... the shoemakers children have hole in their shoes:)

You certainly have inspired me to get going with it though, who knows maybe he'll get a big boy room after all, thanks to your post!

Pam, It room is going to look great! We are starting a room makeover for our youngest now that he has a room to himself. I am trying to convince him to go with grey as his bedding has grey in it. Grey, black, cream with pops of orange/red in the accessories. He is giving it some serious consideration! :) Can't wait to see your completed room! Trust me we need all the inspiration we can get!!

Have a wonderful day!

Looking good! I can just picture it all finished! Can't wait to see what the ladder has become! I love old wood ladders!

This bedroom is going to be so handsome. I love the gray chair and rug, still in love with IKEA after al these years. It was a godsend in setting up our older kids apartments, one in NYC and one in Chicago. They ended up with very stylish places. By pairing IKEA with vintage and antique furniture, it created a really nice look.

cindy said...

Also the bedding looks great as well!

Taylor Greenwalt said...

Love this color. Everything looks great.

Beth of designPOST Interiors said...

I can't wait to see what you do with the ladder. I am trying to incorporate one into my boys room too!
