We bought our house in August of 2009 and spent the next 6 months completely renovating the inside. It wasn’t in bad shape, but it definitely wasn’t “us” either. Because we bought the house at such a low price, we had the wiggle room to update it. We moved in during February 2010 and I am constantly reorganizing and redecorating. I spent about four hours on Bryson’s room this past weekend and since I have never shared photos of it, I thought this would be a great time to do so. I know it won’t stay like this for more than ten minutes, so enjoy!
The entire idea for this room is credited to my husband. He thought of the colors, faux wood paneling, baseboards, etc. I just decorated, arranged, and organized. We make a good team!
We’ll start with a “before” photo. This is the room when we bought the house. Let’s just say it wasn’t pretty, but neither was any other room in the house!
And here is Bryson’s room today!
His bedding set is actually a sleeping bag set I bought from LL Bean on deep clearance when Bryson was just a few months old. Thankfully, it worked perfectly in his room. My mother-in-law bought Bryson’s crib for us and it looks great in his western themed room.
This cabinet was made by my uncle. I used if for a craft cabinet, but since I no longer have a craft room- it was moved into Bryson’s room. It hold his folded clothes and toys. The baskets on the bottom shelf came from Dollar General.
We had the “Bryson” sign made and my father-in-law found the western coat rack & Paul Revere painting who knows where. I picked up the door hanger for about $1 at a thrift shop.
My husband is currently in the process of building Bryson an entertainment center, but until then, this side table works fine. The plaid chairs are another find of my father-in-laws- I believe they were given to him & he can come up with some of the neatest things. Bryson was enamored with our small pink Christmas tree, so I bought this one for him to have his own.
The door you see is Bryson’s closet. In the window seal is a lantern we picked up for a few bucks. The barrel beside the cabinet was a $10 find it is OLD, but in great shape.
So, there you go. My husband put a ton of work into this room, as he did the entire house. I think he did a fabulous job on it and it definitely suits our little cowboy!
