Bedroom makeover!

I will be sharing this fun project with Kristin's painters tarps summer blog party edition.
Debbiedoo's has her summer paint project edition
Never have I had so much fun transforming a room as I have now.
I am not sure if it was all my Gramps positive energy floating around,
or that I just truly have fun decorating.
I know for sure it is BOTH!~
 Let's start with the curtains.  Painters tarps, painted and stenciled.  I will give a tutorial soon.
 Mike thought I was crazy...this is his old red wagon, that has been sitting in our garage for years...what a perfect time to dig it out.It is about 40 years old.  And it is serving a purpose...LEGOS!

 Now this was fun.  Once a pine toy chest turned FUNKAY! I bought the trespassing sign and just sanded the heck crap out of it, I wish things could rust overnight, but they can't to my knowledge.
Tutorial on the chest coming soon.

And yes  some rust too!

And here was Jack when he came home from school today...He is inspecting that everything is there that should be.
I forgot to show you a few other things...

These are my Granfathers gloves from when he was a child..I think this must have been an ashtray, it's missing the center piece.
Oh and here is Jack's before bedroom:

THINGS I did for this room makeover:
The bedside light
The burlap curtains
The chest
Brought in the wagon, that was my husbands when he was Jack's age.
Brought out old time memories and keepsakes of my Dear Grandfather

I love it all, the curtains, trunk and the wagon. I used to put CC's wagon under the Christmas tree with gifts in it. That wagon is a treasure as are the hands.

Great job, Debbie. My favorite part is probably the RadioFlyer wagon. I love it...and those hands are amazing. I immediately thought they would look cute cradling an old baseball or something. How wonderful that you even have them. Nice work, kiddo! Hugs-Diana

What a neat room, any boy would just love it how you took your grandfather's objects and used them as a part of Jack's room. The curtains are unbelieveable, I bet Pottery Barn is zoning in on them!

Hello! This is a great transformation. The red wagon is such a nice touch, and how sweet that you have your Gramps' gloves! Love it all. Thanks again also for hosting the Newbie Party!

It looks great, Debbie! I think Granfather's gloves might just be my favorite part. We've all seen bronzed baby shoes, but those gloves are very special!

Hope you have a happy Valentine's Day!

Boy, what a fun room for Jack! Love all the little touches like the lamp, the chest, the curtains... Thinking outside the box can be a thought provoking challenge but you succeeded. :-) Love the bronzed gloves!
