I spent the week in Birmingham with my mom, so I didn't do anything else with the room until Saturday morning when I got home. I spent the morning working on getting everything cleaned up, closets moved, and just getting everything ready for my husband to move the furniture in on Saturday afternoon. Once the bed and everything was in, Cade and I headed to Target to look at the bedding. I was planning to just look and start formulating a plan. The yellow bedding was a no go, the white was actually very cream and not as crisp looking as I would have liked. We looked and looked, not really agreeing on much.
I have to say that his room looks very grown up right now. Wood furniture, navy and gray bedding, khaki walls. It's time to start adding a little color to the room. His nightstand is already yellow, and I am planning to work that in as one of the accent colors. They other thing we both agreed on was not to go theme-y with this room. I was so happy to here Cade say that he didn't want a theme. I plan to bring in some white, a little yellow, and possibly paint the room light gray. I won't decide on the painting part until I get new curtains and decide if it is necessary. If it isn't, I want mess with it.
As far as artwork goes, I think we are going to rework some of the canvases that we already have and see what we come up with. I'm thinking something striped with a monogram for over the bed and maybe a bulletin board over his dresser/desk and then something framed over his chest of drawers.
What have you been working on? Anyone else get new furniture that created another project?
