This room has been such a labour of love... and a long time coming. Jay and I worked so hard pulling it together and we are so happy with how it turned out. More importantly, Elliott is thrilled. It's the quirky, mature space he wanted. The room is tiny and that couldn't be helped. At least now he has a special room designed just for him.
Welcome to Elliott's Room! The rug is from Turkey. My Mom brought it home for us when I was pregnant with Elliott.
Jay made the captain's bed, which has two huge drawers that house Elliott's clothes. The barnboard I scrubbed was installed on the headboard wall.
Jay also made the desk out of the rough pine salvaged barnboards. The artwork includes framed prints from an Anthropology Calendar from 2008, a real snakeskin in a shadowbox, and initial letter from PB and a bulletin board I covered with a map of Ontario and painted red.
I made the curtains from some Ikea panels on my Grandma's old sewing machine. You can also see the teeny closet, which we had dubbed the 'hobbit hole'. It actually runs the length of the bedroom, perfect for hiding out and reading.
I made this Union Jack Pillow yesterday using some leftover fabric I had from the curtains and an old Pottery Barn shower curtain. The light is from Barn Light Electric.
There are a few details I still want to complete. Things around here are always a work in progress. It's funny, the room turned out completely different from the inspiration board I originally made for the room. But we couldn't be happier with the results. I'd love to hear your feedback!
Just a note: I'm going to do a little work on the photos in this post. I'd really like for them to look a little more professional. I struggle with photography - I don't have an expensive camera or know much about it! If you have a suggestion for a photography resource, I'd really appreciate it.
