Luke’s Awesome Room

This is Luke….
We just finished redecorating his room…come see!

Luke’s Room Before
This is Luke’s Room Now.
I repainted this room a few months ago and left it really simple.  But when I found this fence section at the lumber store … I knew exactly what to do with it.
I used the backside of it because it was more weathered and I like the cross beams.
This iron headboard was a wedding gift from my grandparents.
It was actually shiny black and brass… 🙂 (1993)
I spray painted it to look like flat black iron.
A Mon. – Fri. wardrobe shelf helps our mornings go smooth.
The words were printed on vinyl from my circut and applied right on the wall.
I bought these letters at Pottery Barn when my kids were babies.
That dresser was my husbands as a boy – it’s been refinished a few times.
A bookshelf made from an old wood pallet. 
This is a task light from my garage.  It makes for an awesome reading light.
 A 25 watt bulb puts off plenty of light without being too bright.
I turn a soft lamp on in each bedroom in the evenings to help keep the mood calm.
(Calm?….doesn’t always work)
Two tree trunks from our backyard support a small bench that houses some
 white crates filled with toys and things.
Part of the old pallet features some of Luke’s little treasures.
Luke wanted me to make him a sign that says
 “Life is Good”
I’m a loyal customer at the lumber store where I found this fence section.
It wasn’t very straight and looked neglected so I asked the guys if I could rescue it.
They also let me throw in an old wood pallet
 which made this project…FREE!
I have an eye for reusable items that might add character (basically…JUNK).  Sometimes while we are driving in the car we’ll see things on the side of the road with a free sign on them …. my husband always speeds up at that point hoping I won’t notice….
 I ALWAYS notice!
Sweet Dreams…
