From a kitchen to a little boy's bedroom, that's the transformation that took place. When the house was divided into a 3 apartments, this was the upstairs kitchen. It was also open to what is now the master bedroom. So we gutted it and put up a wall to make it my boy's bedroom.
Hubby laid a wood floor and we painted it white. Of course my husband didn't think a white floor in a boy's bedroom was very manly. But I do love white wood floors and especially in bedrooms. I knew with the right rug (and of course my rustic pieces) it would not look too feminine.
The tent over Eli's bed was made from drop cloth and rope I purchased at Lowes! Love how it turned out.
I wanted the walls to be grey, however since his dresser and so much of his little pieces are warmer tones I wanted the grey to be a warm tone as well. I found the color but it was a bit too dark so I had the man mix it at 50%. It was another one of those times when I just picked out a swatch cold at Lowes and committed to it and....I LOVE IT! I think it looks great with the rug I bought at Urban Outfitters! I wish I could tell you the color, but of course I lost the swatch, the paint can is gone and we did not have a 'My Lowes' card. Many regrets!
