I’m Rachelle from Adventures In Creating! I currently live in Altus, OK (AKA Middle of No Where thank you US Air Force) but am originally from down south in Louisiana. I’m an Interior Designer who loves all things DIY- from welding to crafting I’ve tried a little bit of everything. My style is a mix of vintage and modern; I try to bring a little of each into each room of our home. I started writing a blog to record all my projects around the house.
Con-Man went to a little summer school last week so I finally had time to throw all his toys in his closet/ toy box give his room a good clean up. I don’t know about everyone else but every time I try to clean up after my son he pulls out other toys and makes a new mess right behind me. C’est la vie…
Anyway- in a rare moment of cleanliness here are pictures from Con-Man’s Big Boys bedroom:
The comforter was the jumping off point for the color scheme. I saw it on the Land of Nod website and decided to DIY one myself. The pattern on the wall just came to me one day. I wanted a feature wall but didn’t want anything to busy. We’re renting our home so this will be easy to paint over when we leave.
We had the airplane already. It was a gift Connor got for Christmas. He loves to tell people he has an airplane on his ceiling. I’m on the lookout for a few more to hang with it.The bedside lamp is from Ikea.
I built the step stool as well from leftover scrap wood from his bed. It was quick and easy to make; but as you can see I still haven’t decided which color to paint it yet.
The curtains are the same ones he had before which I made from sheets. To refashion them I purchased some cheap orange sheets from Walmart and sewed them onto the bottom.
The desk was the Hubs’ from when he was little. I debated whether or not to paint it to go with the new decor. In the end I decided to leave it as it is to give a vintage feel to the room. Con-Man likes to sit here and color in his coloring books.
