You may remember the orange chair that I scored from Craigslist when we lived in Virginia. We removed the skirt to update the feel of it, but I had a few more things in my boys’ room stash to add here.
The lamp I found at a local thrift store this past fall and spray painted it the same color of our family room lamps. But there was a catch when I was spray painting and a huge long story to go with it -- that I will tell another day. :)
I wanted to do something a little different than we did in our Texas boys’ room. I used the same table tops, painted them a light blue and paired them with a pair of bike tires that I found at the YMCA thrift shop in Fairlawn, Virginia. I thought they were so cool -- I see them every day in my garage, but they just looked different off the bike and in the thrift store. Then they got packed up and brought across the country because I knew I wanted to use them in the boys’ room.
The zinc-look letters are just paper mache letters from JoAnn for around $3 each with coupon and painted
with some black paint and then overcoated with a mixture of gunmetal and pearl white
Just kind of brush it on until it looks zinc-y.
There you have it!
It's coming along -- I try to grab an hour here and there to work on their room and I wish I was a magic superwoman and could whip it all out in one weekend, but it’s progress!
