Have you read the brand new book all about home, Home Made Lovely?

The Boy’s Train Room

Well we’ve made a bit more progress in our son’s room this week. Some of you may remember, back in the fall, we participated in Crafting With the Stars. The final round was home decor and we redid this side of his room:

 

Up until this week much of the rest of the space was left rather in shambles.

We just got busy and since the bookshelves from the living room were coming in here after we built the new ones for that space…well…bad Mommy and Daddy just didn’t have time to work on those. Anyway, we are finally working on the new living room shelves (should be done by Christmas) and we moved the older black bookcases into our son’s room this past weekend. 

 

And yesterday we finally got around to organizing them too. We have had those blue Ikea buckets since Jonah was a toddler – those things are durable! Oh and for anyone wondering, there are no ceiling lights in the bedrooms of this house, so lamps are needed for now. One day we’ll get to installing proper ceiling light fixtures! (Add it to the never ending list!)

 

And the rest of the room is shaping up as a result of tidying up too.

 

Jonah likes it – what do you think?

I'd love it if you'd share:

    I love his room! I wanted to do the map and clock idea in my son’s room but he said the ticking would drive him crazy and clocks that were stopped would be stupid… oh well! I still love it!
    Merry Christmas, LuAnn

    I will tell him but at 19 he thinks he knows more!!! LOL
    P.S. You have been such an inspiration. I am a fellow homeschooler and to see all you have done is exciting! I know that at times school has completely buried me and snuffed out the decorating. But I have graduated 2 and only have 1 to go, so I am being to get into it more! Thanks again and love you blog!

      Lol. Well yes, don’t we all know more than our parents at 19?! And thank you…we have many years of homeschooling left – including getting all three munchkins through high school! Merry Christmas LuAnn!

    Love it! Question: did your map come rolled? I bought big maps for my son’s room when I redid it this past summer but they were folded…I did my best to iron out the creases but still a bit noticable. 🙁 He loves to look at the flags around the border and find the country. 🙂

      Yes, our map came rolled. I’m not sure what would help flatten out the fold marks. Anyone else have any ideas??

I loved the lesson on color theory, and also THAT YOU TOLD US EXACTLY WHAT ORDER TO DECORATE IN!

I love your easy process to determine my style. I've also learned that my style has changed over the years and seasons...

Your explanation of paint colors was the light bulb moment for me! Your explanation would have saved us from painting...
