KJ's Room

The kids rooms are clean. Enough said right? It made for a perfect time to snap some pics to share. I still need to add art in KJ's room once I find it, but for now he is quite pleased with it. I let the kiddos be in charge of decorating their own rooms this time around. KJ knew what he wanted... red, blue, orange, and gray. Yes, that was the only part of the vision he shared with me. Come to find out he also may be the most picky boy I know. He would not sway from what he had in his head and in the end I was rather impressed. To be honest there were a few times I had my doubts. It's fun, preppy, and everything has a place which fits him to a tee.

First off we HAD to paint the space and have the plaster walls repaired. They were quite a mess. {before's here} I would share the color, but I can't recall for the life of me! It's a really light gray though. We also added new romans from Home Depot. I thought about having them lined, but we did not need the privacy and the kiddos like to be able to see the trees and squirrels. As for decor most things came from the old house. The bed, antlers, chair, ottoman, side table, and ikea bookshelf were all in our old house in one room or another. The rug is new since his got ruined in the old house flood.

The bedding took us forever to find. We went to every local shop and spent hours scrolling through online shops. We happened to come across this quilt at T.J. Maxx and he LOVED it. He also grabbed the throw there too. The orange pillow was from Home Goods. The bird pillow I made him when he was a baby.

His side table is an ikea rast dresser with knobs he found locally. The lamp was a fun find with the orange cord since the placement of the outlet leaves the cord exposed. My boy also has an infatuation with air plants. When he spotted this hanging glass orb locally he was too giddy for me to pass it up. It actually hangs on cable tv wire that some brilliant person drilled through the wall. Can't pull it out without leaving a hole. Next best thing was to give it a purpose.

The ikea bookcase thankfully made it through the flood in decent condition. It still is his favorite piece. I also love how organized it keeps him. The wire baskets we found at bed bath & beyond. These also took quite the search to find the ones he found to be "perfect". The black chair we used to have in our old tv room. The only addition I made without asking first was the fun string lights by Bright Lab.
