Procrastinator's Party Round 2: The Boy's Room and a Sneak Peek

Sorry it has taken so long to share the boy's new room. We tend to start new projects when we still have several others waiting to be finished.
This was the new project that put off the finishing of the other projects: Landscaping

So the boys room. I don't think I took a before picture. Here are a few of the afters.

I made the window valances from Ikea fabric. I ran out of money so I used upholstery tacks to attach them to the wall.

This light is my favorite part of the room. I found it at Pottery Barn Outlet.

This bookshelf used to be ugly and dirty. I painted it red....didn't like it is black. I still need to add a bit of bead board to the back. The picture above the shelf is also from Pottery Barn. The rug is from Crate and Barrel.

I got the boy's bedding from Pottery Barn and Target. Their bunk bed used to be their Grandpa's. My husband and his brother shared it when they were kids.

i used regular unfinished shelves from Hobby Lobby for the bookshelves. I painted them black, turned them upside down and added a rod to hold the books in.

Here is a sneak peek at the cabinet. I still need to attach the doors...and by "I" I mean my husband:)


  1. It looks so great, Melissa. So boy and so cute! I love it! The idea of turning over a shelf and attaching a rod to hold books is seriously genius! Wow. I am so impressed with that. Very cool! You did a great job! Can't wait to see the cabinet! : )

  2. I have 3 boys so this was such a fun post! You did an excellent job! It looks so classic and clean. I LOVE that Brothers sign!

  3. GREAT idea with the upside down shelves! Cute!

  4. This is the cutest room! Looks like it came out of a Pottery Barn magazine. I love the upside down shelves.

  5. It looks very pulled-together! I love the 'brothers' above the bed :).

  6. Love the room... totally how I love a little boys room to look.
