I LOVE the feeling of finishing a project. Especially a big project!
I showed you here how the Board & Batten turned out in Mr. A's room.
I showed you here all the tips and tricks I could think of for tackling B&B yourself!
So, do you want to see his FINISHED room?!
Lots of pictures to follow, and a list of where I found all his stuff at the bottom of the post.
I was SHOCKED by how much stuff this system can hold! It handles all the toys from my living room, all of Mr. A's books, and MUCH more.
The best part? The chalkboard doors. Mr. A looooooves them!
He also loves his little chalk pail:
I showed you in this post how I used vinyl to number his bins.
I really like the way they look!
I love his bed! We also sprung for the guard rail that matches it.....it looks so much nicer than the ghetto metal one I had on Miss J's bed!
Close up of the details:
Nice and boyish, right?
Mr. A is, of his own choosing, all about basketball.
I wanted to do a sports theme in his room without it screaming SPORTS!!
This quilt is a great weight. Not too heavy, and it feels really well made. He loves all the balls on it.
Above the Bed
Mr. A's only request for the whole room was a "hoop".
So, I found him a pretty darn cute one!
(it has chalkboard score boxes on both sides....love it!)
I customized it with his name and my trusty Cricut. Wish I could show you the whole name; it's so cute!
(you'll just have to wonder what Mr. A's real identity is.....)
His favorite past time is standing on his bed and shooting hoops :)
If the storage wall wasn't enough, I found this FAB ball bin for Mr. A's bigger balls and stuff.
It's super tall, which is a plus. Also, it breaks up all the wood in the room. I like the metal.
Of course my hubby had input in our only son's room.
He found this big vinyl decal and insisted that I find I place for it. I was NOT sold on it at first, but I really like it now!
My biggest hold up in the room was what do on the looong wall above the bed.
I didn't want something giant up there, and we already had vinyl up on the wall that faced the bed. Hmmmmm.
Where else would I find what I need than at Costco! (love that store)
They were running a special on their photo canvas. $10 off each canvas; that is a deal!
I decided to do 3 canvases, and it took up the whole wall:
This is my favorite of the pictures:
I think that's it. Hope you enjoyed the "tour"!
Where I found Mr.A's stuff
Storage Wall System - Pottery Barn Kids
Bed & Bedding - Pottery Barn Kids
Tall Wire Ball Bin - Land of Nod
Oversized Basketball Player vinyl decal - Empire City Studios (etsy)
Black & White Photo Canvas - Costco
Numbered Storage Bins: Lowes (customized by me)
Basketball hoop: Pottery Barn Kids (customized by me)
Galvanized Chalk Pail - Target (dollar bins)
TIP: The pieces I bought at PBK were ALL on sale. January is their "storage sale" month (only ONCE a year), and they really mark down alot of their furniture. I would recommend buying their storage system in January, when it's on sale.
The bed and bedding were also on sale too....sale prices beat full price!
