{Boys Trim Work}

I know I still need to post about my trip to NYC, but can you believe that I TOTALLY forgot my camera!?! So all my pictures are on my friend's camera. Hopefully I will have some to share soon. 

In the meantime, I wanted to post about one of my favorite trim-work projects that my cute hubby Brett did in our home!!!

{The Boys Room}

This inspiration came while I was laying WIDE awake one night (as most of my ideas do) 

First...we made sure that the bottom half of the wall around the circumference of the room was NOT textured during construction. Then Brett used 2x4 MDF boards and nailed them vertically and evenly spaced out.

Next for the back wall...
We had a few extra planks from the salvaged barn, so Brett put them up vertically and then added more 2x4 MDF boards to break up the pattern into 3 squares.
 When that was done, we added the cross pattern with 1/4 inch board that Brett cut down in long 4 inch wide boards.  Then he framed it in with a top shelf and base board, again with MDF board.




My inspiration came from my love of old barn doors!
~Paint -Bull Frog Green- Valspar (Lowes)
~Bedding, Curtains and Street signs are PBK 2009
Beds are Downeast brand, Bought them when they were producing downeast furniture
~Silver pendant lights WORLD IMPORTS
~Sconces are outdoor lights from Lowes

I am new to your blog. I love this room. I am getting ready to work on my son's big room which is a cars theme from PBK. Love the signs you have on the ledge.

This is such a cute boys room. I tagged to Pinterest to try to recreate for my son's toddler room next year.

I would love it if you could share your room dimensions. I have to figure out how to do a combo girl boy room in a smaller sized room. I was thinking bunks were my only option but yet when I see your pics it looks like your room isn't mammoth. I am amazed and inspired by your blog! Thank you!
