RJ gives a hand to get the ball rolling...
Once the sheet rocking is done, and we remove the 60's wallpaper from the closet. The ceiling fan gets a $2 makeover. Crown molding goes up. Baseboard and trim are installed. New doors and knobs are put in. The walls and trim are painted, and the floor is refinished.
The majority of the furnishings and textiles were purchased from Ikea. I did find a TV stand at Goodwill to for his TV and game systems. It was only $10. I just had to replace some baseboard at the bottom, add some knobs, and of course paint it.
Finally, a teen's dream come true....
The red locker desk is so cool. He got that and the swivel chair for Christmas. When you are done working, it folds up to give more space in the room. I came up with my own version of "athletic subway art" for the wall above the bed. The giant plum wood letters were found at the Brimfield flea market. Can you believe my luck..All they had were the R and J. Notice the photos above the locker hanging from a magnet board. RJ drew those. I am hoping we have an artist in the making.
There are still some final touches to be made and some more wall hangings to be added, but I have a good start and one VERY HAPPY boy!
