Well, I attempted to post this last week but I really wasn't pleased with the pictures. I got out Chris' camera this weekend and tried again...I think they are a little better!
He is almost four and has grown out of his toddler bed, so I searched this summer for a good deal on an antique bed--and I found one! I knew I wanted to paint the bed....and Liam, Chris and I all love green. I also remembered this photo I saw on Two Ellie
This is almost the same green we used on our front door...we still have so much left we used it for his bed...and his walls.
I also recall this picture from some of my Scandinavian files. I love how the bed blends in with the walls. Chris was on-board for painting about half of Liam's walls....so we went ahead and used the same semi-gloss Georgian Green by Benjamin Moore. I think glossy paint is good for kids' rooms....so easy to wipe stuff off!
our green door...
and here's our big boy's green (well, half-green) room...and green bed
Mama still needs to work on a dust ruffle. Here is a cute green & white rug I found at World Market. (Love that is has that Scandinavian cross, too :)
And this was my chair when I was little. My grandaddy found this in a junk pile in middle Georgia and took it home to my Mema. They covered it in the same fabric as their sofa and said it was mine. I was so tickled! You know, middle children do need to feel special every now and then.
Not sure what I was thinking getting white for a little boy. It may stay that way another year or so.
Here he is in former bed with his cousin, Augusta.
The cute tractor sheets (and excavators and cement mixers, of course!) are from Grandma.
Do you love painted furniture as much as I do?
His dresser got a makeover, too.
A while ago, Reid from Ghost Nest contacted me about his product. You know, I don't mind giving company props when it is really something I would buy. And how cute that these personalized knobs come in a fun paint can?
and even a sticker
Liam loves a good trailer...so the Airstream with a green background is a perfect fit for his room! He loves them. Thanks, Reid at Ghost Nest!
I think these could really be fun with a monogram or numbers.
Now...what to pick out for baby brother's room?
Happy Monday to you, Julie
