Well, it only took a few months but we FINALLY got around to finishing up the boys' room. I know I mentioned in my post about the girls' room that we were in the process of decorating their room, I just didn't know it would take so long. I suppose that's what an almost month-long vacation can do for your motivation.
Anyway, I finally took some pictures and thought I would share them. There's still a few things I may add, but we are done with most of the big stuff. And remember that little limitation we have of not being allowed to paint walls or choose our own carpet. I don't know what I'll do the day that I have a wall I can paint. Look out Benjamin Moore ...
Like I've said before, I'm not really a "theme" kinda gal when it comes to decorating rooms. I try to keep it within a certain genre and color scheme, but that's about it. Which is why I was surprised when I went with a bit of theme for the boys' room: Transportation. It's still pretty broad and my boys are really into any and all machinery or vehicles, so it worked. I went with navy and red as the main colors in the room with some tan thrown in. Also, as with the girls, I tried to make the room suitable for a child, but not too babyish, thus letting the room grow with the boys (I don't want to have to be re-decorating again in a couple years when it already took me a year and a half to finally get this one done!).
Ok, on with the pictures!
This is the view looking into the boys' room from the hallway.
Sam's bed is to the left and Luke's crib is to the right (you can't see it) once you walk in the door. That's the train table in the middle of the room. Please excuse the glare ... the sun is in their room all morning and that's when I took the pictures.
Here's the view if you step into the room and look to the right.
Here's the shot from the diagonal opposite of the room (if I stand right up against the dresser and face the doorway).
Here are a few close-ups of Luke's side of the room.
Here is Sam's part of the room from the side ...
Finally, here's a better shot of the dresser.
So there you have it ... boys' room, done! Only took me 18 months, but it's finally finished! Let me know what you think!
