Navy Striped Nautical Bedroom

I am going to put the sailboat and light house up here and put the lantern on his dresser. I hate the way the toys look on this armoire so I am making wooden boxes for each shelf and going to drill holes and make rope handles. I will paint them navy since I have extra navy paint.

"W" loves his map and his sailboat.

This is a dropcloth with all the nautical flags and knots, its really cool.

We ended up hanging red curtains. The furniture is from IKEA. The bed has cubbies and shelves to hide buckets of toys.

Ok I promised better pictures once I got my computers working again so here they are. I love how his room turned out. It has become a big mess already, but at least I was able to get some pictures first. I can't get to the before pictures up yet, they are on the dead laptop.

I'm not normally a fan of nautical themes, but this is REALLY nice! Love the stripes on the wall - they look so nice and sharp! Great job :)

Thanks for the nice comments. I was so excited to hear the positive reviews. I am new to blogging and this made my day.

Love this room. Great job! I am actually sitting here thinking of doing stripes on my next project. Was it difficult? I haven't decided or googled instructions yet but I think it's something I might do.

Thanks for stopping by to see me today. In answer to your question about the red/gray room - my (teen) daughter actually chose that when we purchased the house and said "go ahead - do what you want". But, we had only lived here for a year before she headed off on her own/college. Yea. I had the paint brush the minute we hugged goodbye. lol
