Remember way back when I wrote about re-doing my son's room??? Well, I thought I should finally post a little something about the makeover! I don't have pictures of the whole room but here are a few to start...
Since my son is now sharing his room with our foster son I had to find a larger dresser to fit both of their stuff. I was so glad when I found one on Craigslist for $50.00.
Of course I forgot to take a before picture but it looks just like this one that Cassie re-did on Primitive and Proper. Go check her out she has a great blog and I love what she did with her dresser.
I painted the base and drawers of the dresser white and then sanded heavily to age it. My husband and I found the license plates at the Sacramento Antique Fair. The California one was from on of my husbands old trucks. I drilled a hole in the license plate then added old wooden knobs.
I stained the top of the dresser and added industrial gate pulls to the remaining drawers.
Definitely a keeper... this can grow with my boys through their teen years!
(Of course, knowing me, I will get tired of it...sell it and do something different in 2-3 years!)
I also found an old sign at the same flea market that said "Toy Loading Zone." I think it may of been a Christmas decoration. So I had my husband cut it into strips and then I mounted it to an old fence board (from my parents old porch) and screwed it onto their toy box. Yep...I like it!!
P.S....Isn't that chalkboard amazing??!! My brother-in-law made that for my son...go check out his cool art here!
