We have a game of musical rooms going on at our house. The oldest two were sharing the bunk room. Then they got on each other’s nerves. Soon they became territorial about toys, Dude Diary’s and real estate. (I thought boys weren’t supposed to get caught up in this kind of drama). The oldest moved out and started sleeping in the spare room (aka the junk room…it’s kind of like a junk drawer but on a much larger scale).
Plans for this room got put on the top of the to-do list due to a brotherly squabble.
First the bedroom got cleared (no easy task).
The youngest (aka the angel) gave us a little Vanna White before-shot show off.
Planks, planks and more planks were installed using the same technique as we used for our stair wall.
The oldest boy actually liked the look of the unfinished boards. I agree, they did look good but it gave an awful orange hue to the rest of the room.
So white they went. I’m really loving “Silent White” lately by Clark and Kensington.
This other blip of a wall also got planked as well. I experimented with staining the boards a Walnut but after I took a step back and looked it was just too dark for this small little room. There is this small little 90 degree nook right next to the door. I’m planning some floating shelves to give some added storage.
I’m really excited about the third wall. The oldest boy really wanted some color. I picked up a dozen sample cans of paint at ACE Hardware last month during their $0.99 sale and tested them all on the wall. You may fall in love with a color on a sample card but if you don’t test it on the actual wall playing off the light in the room you can never really be sure. I’ve got big plans for this wall. It looks great in my mind but I’m hoping I can enlist the right help to pull it off.
I’ve also got plans for the 4th wall which I’m not quite ready to divulge…stay tuned.
