Panels & Boys' Room Details

Thanks for all of your comments on my window treatment dilemma! You all pretty much said the same thing, and I went for the panels with the chocolate trim. I'm happy with the way they turned out, and the rod hung extra high adds some height to my 8 foot ceilings.

I used these items to create the trim on the IKEA drapes.

No Sewing! Seriously so easy!

Now onto the details of the room..

The bunk beds are the PB Kendall bunks that we got at Down East. I found one of the striped duvets as well as 9 yards of the same striped fabric there for $70. Pretty good deal. I sewed another duvet, as well as the blue euro shams, and the dog silhouette pillows, love those! My sister-in-law and mother-in-law made the quilts with the boys' initials on them.

My most favorite picture of Will is this one by his bed, he's a sweet 9 months old, oh that face is too cute! I paired it with a set of his hand prints (great inexpensive art!).

The seagrass rug was $24.99 at TJ Maxx! My sister-in-law always says "You get the max for the minimum at TJ's" True, true!
And the personalized Land of Nod bean bags are so great for reading or playing DS in.

Love this mustard colored dresser that Trevor's mom spotted at the junk store. Look at those legs!! Originally I was going to re-finish it but I love the mustard against the blue walls, and the crackle in the paint is awesome!

I'm sure you're tired of seeing this gallery wall so click here for the details. But it really is my favorite part of the room:) I adored the little dog lamp on the dresser for quite awhile, love the way it ties in the dog silhouettes. I added a little trim to a new shade to just kind of finish it off.

This little bench is also a junk store find for $9. I re-stained it and added some left over stripe fabric to it. Pretty sweet.

I almost forgot...paint is Ralph Lauren Canyon Blue. Trim is Behr Swiss Coffee (if you are looking for a good white, this one is awesome! This is the third house I've used it in.

I'm happy with the end result, and so glad my boys have a put together room that they can call their own. Isn't it funny though, that sometimes by the time a project is complete, our tastes have changed a bit. If I could do it all over I would go a little different direction, but hey, I'm sure it will get re-done in a few years anyway. We'll enjoy it while we can:)
