I have four kids. Each one is always wanting me to repaint and redecorate their rooms. Well, I’m always willing to oblige but who first? Well, my son came out the winner this time mainly because it has been the longest since his room has been redone( as I write this my oldest daughter is hovering over me saying “I’m next… right?”) Anyway, I ‘ve starting collecting items for his room when I see them. I picked up this very large map at one of my favorite consignment shops, it looks like some out of Ballard’s but with out the price tag. I paid 50.00 which I think was a great price (plus I used a gift card from Christmas so it was like getting it for free). I’ve always had a things for old maps and this one has a vintage look to it that doesn’t show up in the photo. I’ve been seeing them used a lot lately am I loving it. I can’t wait to see this one on the wall. I also found a very nice lamp that I thought my son would like…he did. I bought it at TJ MAXX for 30.00. I like the oiled bronze look of it. I also dismantled an old cupboard that I picked years ago so it can be made into a desk (I’ll keep you updated on that one). The wood is a wonderful old pine with bits of the old green paint that was left when I first stripped it. The patina is great on the wood. My son chose his paint color but I want to gather a couple more items before I get started. I’ve been on Pinterest looking and swooning at the fabulous rooms to get some inspiration.
Have a great day.
