Baby boy's room will continue to be a work in progress but I'm calling it good enough for now. There is still a lot of blank wall space and we're still trying to figure out the carpet situation but it is an improvement over what was there.
I started by repainting all the baseboards, doors and trim work and swapping out the brass doorknobs for brushed nickel to match the rest of the house. Then I painted the walls Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter.
I added 2 new nightstands from Overstock. The $140 price was way better than the identical $300 Pottery Barn version. The lamp is from Ikea. I've never bought an Ikea lamp but I was really impressed with the weight and quality for the $29.99 price tag.
I framed a screen print of the USA from Orka Posters using an Ikea frame.
I used the cut out scrap from the mat to make the chalkboard football play art.
Added the faux metallic letters I made here.
I used the Overstock.com reward points from buying the nightstands to buy the navy map canvas below. It gets a little lost on the wall so I may end up framing it to give it some weight.
New bedding. Ikea gingham checked Euro shams ($1.50!), quilt, standard shams and gray and white checked duvet cover from Pottery Barn. Spiderman sheets are hidden under all that :)
Still need to figure out this wall but will wait until the crib is gone to see what I'm working with.
Last but not least I moved the rolling storage crate to this room to store books. Tutorial here.
So that's it (for now)! Next up, figure out the carpet situation.
