Well can you believe it’s yet another Project Challenge?! That means October is almost over…how can that have happened so fast?! I’m so glad to have you here today and share with you something my little boy has been wanting for quite awhile. A couple years ago we sat down and brainstormed all the things we wanted to do to his room. Then, due to circumstances, he ended up sharing with one of his big brothers for awhile. Now, with two children having left home, we have a little space freed up. This made it possible for all of our boys to have their own rooms. Now my 8 year old and I are ready to encorporate all the ideas we had before, as well as a few more. It all started with this neat statue he begged me to buy him one day while shopping at Ross. I couldn’t refuse since this little guy hardly ever asks for anything.
His bedroom is basically a blank canvas. Plenty of space to do whatever we want to, though the room is the smallest of them all. There was nothing above his bed, so we had decided to add a shield. It took me awhile of pinterest searching to find something that was suitable. That’s where this idea came from. (to see the inspiration, you can go here).
At first I just made it silver with brandishing to look old and used in battle (as shown in the picture above), but I felt like it lacked a contrast, so I added some gold leaf rub and buff to the HVAC tape around the edges, as well as the tree, and went over it again with a wash of chalkboard paint.
Now go see all these other fun projects by clicking on the links or pictures below, they are well worth the time. 😉
