*Holly's Life*

If you follow me on Pinterest you would notice that I have been pinning a lot of ideas for my son's room.  He is now 8 years old and is ready for a more grown-up room.  
We (or I should say I persuaded him) decided on gray, orange and navy for the colors.  My inspiration came from this room from It All Started with Paint.  I am using navy instead of black. 

He is dying to have a bunk bed so he can sleep on a top bunk.  We have decided to make a loft bed in the style of this one.  This will allow for a dresser to go underneath and he can still have his top bunk.  As some of you may know we are hoping to adopt a child/ren so my husband is going to make the bed so that, if needed, we can add a bed underneath to make a L-shape bunk bed.   
My son's room has a boring white ceiling fan so I am hoping to do something like this with gray chevron stripes.

And finally, I have been eyeing these shelves made from pipe and plank wood... so I definitely will be putting these in his room too.  
The room has already been painted now it is time to get to  work on the fun part...decorating!!
