Fancy Frugal Life: Entire Surfer Room

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

Entire Surfer Room

Here are more pics of my son's room. I put most of it together 3 years ago before I had a blog. We decided to go with the bunk beds because his room is also our "guest room", and it really has been a great purchase. We keep the ladder down so he doesn't go on the top (at least when I am looking.) Both the bedding and bed are from Baby USA (not so frugal, but they have lasted 3 moves in 3 years!)

This table was my very first DIY project. I couldn't find any stylish affordable kid furniture so I came up with this table. It started out from a thrift store in white and pink stripes. I painted it and used these vinyl decals from target, and then painted a clear coat over. It's been such a fun space for him!

I recently made these raffia window valances by tying two layers of raffia skirting (ordered from Amazon) to plain metal valances. I did this for both windows. One of my fav things in the room is the wood ore above the window :)

I've been collecting accessories from Goodwill, Ross, and Marshall's over the years.

I love how the toy box remodel came out. You can see the before here

I am pretty much obsessed with creative and stylish kid rooms! This one has been such a joy to put together for my son. I hope he lets me create his rooms for as long as possible :)

Thanks for stopping by!

I love the room! You would automatically assume the walls would be a blue color and I love even more that it is a green. Very Hawaiian of you. :)

WOW WOW WOW!! Gosh, I sure wish you could come help me!! I have a HUGE room to finish from scratch, for my boys, 2 of triplets. Their triplet sister just got her own room, but there's is still just sheet rock so far. Working to finish it, and then the design-brainstorming! I bet you would love that, huh? :)

Well I would LOVE it if you came and linked up as many creative projects you would like to, at my Our House Of Joyful Noise link-up party, every Tuesday!! : ) (Open for several days after too.) You might get featured!

What a fabulous room. I especially like your window treatment! It's so neat and tidy too. My daughter's room depresses me! It is always in such a terrible mess.
