Max's room ws a challenge because I usually like to paint murals, but since I rent my home I was not allowed to paint the walls. So, I had to be creative with the space to make up for the dull color. With the Help of Etsy, Rejuvenated Furniture and Finds and a DIY art piece, this is what I came up with!
My inspiration was to try not to do anything i've seen before. I really didn't have a theme in mind but it turned out to be Reading, Fun, and Games!
My Style is Eclectic with interest in Contemporary as well as Vintage.
My project started when i found this amazing furniture store, it's a local business called http://rejuvenatedfurniture.com/ The furnite is vintage and these particular pieces were unfinished when i saw them in the store. I chose the paint colors and they finished both pieces for me to my liking. Also the school desk was purchased there. The tree wall decal was from OrqueShaw's Walldecors at www.etsy.com , So nicely made and easy to hang! And last but not least the scrabble art was made by myself. I purchased 6in x 6in art boards from www.dickblick.com and painted the letters with acryllic paint. Also, the knobs on the dresser are from www.lowes.com
Well, i love the Scrabble piece because i made it with Love for Max but i truely love the furniture. The dresser is solid wood and from the 1940's and it's made so well it took 4 men to lift! and the book case/ dresser is an old piece of school furniture and I just think it's so original and interesting!
Just start with something you love and build it from there. You don't always have to have a matchy matchy theme.
