Kadens Room Remodel

I have been wanting to finish Ks room for months. We switched up his room and Daddys office so that when the time comes we will have enough room to stick a baby in there... Someday... not soon. :) Anyway. I had a hard time getting motivated to to anything about it after the switch. I was working on redoing three rooms. A little too ambitious I think. But I finally did it! It has taken a while to get everything finished, but Its ready. So here is a look!

First... the PLAID WALL! I love how it turned out. I am going to do a tutorial on my craft blog. I learned a lot while doing this! It isnt perfect but just dont look too close. It was a lot of fun and I have my friend Jen to thank for all her help with this one! Kaden picked out the colors for the walls and while I was a little skeptical i like how it turned out.

My Uncle works for a city and I asked him to keep an eye out for old signs they didnt need anymore and he came though like a champ! This combined with some hooks for his stuff and a project display board and we were golden!
I got the idea for this from THIS BLOG and it was the perfect solution for our latest dilemma. K always brings home papers from school that he wants to keep and they end up all over the house. So now we put them here and when we are tired of them we chuck them or save them in a more permanent place.

I got K this chair from IKEA a while ago. It had a plain canvas cover on it and while it is a GREAT little chair, it was kind of ugly. So I took an extra pillowcase and some black binding and recovered it. Super easy and fast!

In his old room we had these framed pictures of cars in blue frames so they got a paint job and some new home made art.

I just loved these round rugs from IKEA... again. Love that place! They were only a couple bucks each too!

Heres how things look looking at his bed.

And heres the view of the other wall. These were some galvanized buckets from... IKEA... :) I punched holes in the buckets and screwed them into the wall with anchors. He stores all sorts of treasures in them.

I love room re-dos! If I could start a dream job, I would be a professional organizer, no joke. Love it.
