Boys Room Number Two

How was your weekend?
Mine was quiet but I got a chance to work around the house and that is always a plus in my book.

After I got my younger sons room finished I thought my older sons room needed a little refreshing. Isn't that how it goes, you start one room and that leads to another and another...well you get it. This is my college students room and truth be known he's never here so I just wanted to give it a little more warmth but still keep a masculine feel on a budget of course. 
The only purchases for this room were the curtains and the clock. Everything else were things I had on hand.

Sorry no before pics..

The doors lead out to a small atrium that is never used so I hung curtains to bring some warmth and pattern to the room. The old shutters I distressed with some Old White ASCP  and propped behind the dresser. My son is a huge music lover and his albums fit perfect in the slats of the shutters.

More framed album covers

The dresser was a $40 find. I painted it a flat black and replaced the hardware with brass knobs (Hobby Lobby).
Curtains from Target

Sorry I thought I had more pics but can't find them. You get the idea though...

Have you been busy with projects? I'm a little addicted now and keep moving around the house. 

Have a beautiful Monday!

Boy Room Makeover

Well that was a long vacation...
Hope your all having a wonderful New Year!
Even though I was absent from the blog, I did keep up with several of your blogs and have enjoyed seeing so many great ideas.

As soon as the tree was down, I couldn't wait to get started on my first project for the new year. 
A bedroom makeover for my boys! We've only been in our home for just over a year and never really did much to their rooms. Mainly because I wasn't sure what direction I wanted to go so that just sat..and sat..until a few weeks ago.

The only things I purchased was the new bedding and lamp (Target) and paint.
Everything else I had around the house. I wanted to give the room more of an industrial feel and something a little more grown up. We are both very happy with the results. 

Still need to replace pictures with some black and white updated and get a new clock (it decided to stop working). I used drop cloths for the curtains and all the accessories were from around the house. Pillow covers from Pottery Barn.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope some of you are still with me after that long hiatus. 
I will be sharing my older sons room update next.
