At long last, Charm's room is complete...you know, just in time to move him to a twin sized bed:). I started working on it early last summer, so it really does feel like it's been a never ending project.
Just as a reminder, here is what the room looked like back in July:
And here it is now:
I already posted about most of the major projects like the gutter book shelves, the gallery wall, the desk area, the wave artwork, the pouf, the night stand and the clip board wall art. In addition, I made the 'headboard' art using a thrift store embroidery hoop, fabric from IKEA and embroidery floss to sew on an 'H'.
I also made him a duvet cover using a fun green organic cotton fabric that I purchased at Fabric.com.
I made the curtains using fabric from IKEA. (It has since been discontinued, but was called Monalis.) The fabric wasn't cheap at $8/yard = $48 for two panels (not my usually cheapo standards), but I just loved the pattern, because it reminds me of a tree house which reminds me of little boys, which reminds me of Charm. I also sewed in a liner to keep it nice and dark during day time naps. The liner was on sale at Joann's 50% and I had a bonus take an additional 25% off sale prices coupon, so it was $15 for 6 yards.
I updated his chalkboard globe recently with the famous line from Dr. Seuss, "Oh, the places you'll go!". Fitting that it's written on a globe, no?
What do you think? Anyone else finish a never ending room as of late? What a great feeling it is to finally get 'er done. And now, it's time for me to focus on the next room or two. Or three. :)
Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Spring is here in Minnesota!! Don't forget your sunscreen!
