Cabin Inspired Boy's Bedroom


I think I mentioned a little while back that the kids' rooms were getting a little sprucing up. I'm here to say that we're finally done! Whew! Matthew wanted me to share his room first, so here we go......


Not too terribly much changed in his room {click here to see Matthew's room before} , but it was more of a tweaking to get a true cabin feel.  It was outdoorsy already, but I wanted to give it a strong winter cabin vibe.


I added a buffalo check duvet, some cabin inspired pillows and we repainted his bedside file cabinet a rich red. Throw in a vintage paddle, some deer antlers, a lantern, and I called it a day. I smile every time I walk by his room, and Matthew loves it, success! All the added pieces were on sale at Pottery Barn Kids, and just in case you're working on freshening up your boy's room, I listed my sources below.


Stay tuned, next Monday I'll be posting the girl's shared room. They were ready to take it from fun and color-full to..............well, you'll just have to wait until next week for that!
xo,
Amy

  2. Thank you so much Glenda! And yes, Matthew is very happy! He was most happy right before I took the photos because we had to get his room all nice and tidy for the pictures. 'Wow', he said, 'my room looks great'. I told him he should try to keep it so nice and clean ALL the time, there was some eye rolling involved ;)

  4. Amy,

    1. Hi Dana! My absolute favorite paint for small projects is Valspar Premium Finish Spray paint. I use this for all things metal and for little wood projects too. It holds up beautifully on my outdoor metal chairs too! For this file cabinet I used Gloss Cut Ruby. Thanks so much for your question!
