Spencer's room

I have been working on a remodel for Spencer's room for quite some time now. I am pretty happy with how things turned out so far. Nate thinks is was silly to worry about what his room looked like and kept telling me that Spencer didn't care if it looked nice or not. Let's be honest...I did this for me! I love to make a space look nice. It just feels good. Mind you this is nothing from a magazine but I'm okay with that. I still have a few things that need to be finished but I am not sure when that will happen so I decided to just go a head a post what I have done. I did it all for about $20 - 25.


I made the curtains out of a sheet and lined it with dark fabric to block out the light.


I refinished some pillows that we already had.


I got these frames form the DI for $1.50 each.


I found this sweet poem and loved it! I just used foam board and scrapbook paper.



I got this idea from one of my favorite blogs and just made it my own way.




Ta-da!

Looks awesome!!!! I love perusing craft blogs to get ideas for decorating. There are so many things I'd love to do but can't since we're renters. Ugh. Someday.... ;)

It looks fantastic! I'm working on getting Hannah's big girl room ready, and I'm totally going overboard and she totally won't care. I've painted the walls and redone some furniture, and now I'm in the middle of building her a canopy bed, and then I'll be sewing curtains, quilts, etc. I just need something to keep myself busy, and it makes me happy, so I totally relate! I love that poem. I may have to steal it. :)

COOOOOL! Once upon a time I had intentions of making Megan's room really girly and cute, but I don't know if that's ever going to happen. Maybe with inspiration from you... :)

LOVE IT! The color combination is one of my favorites and the fact that you made so many things yourself is really special. Great job!

Love it! I fully understand that you decorated it for you and not him. Same reason I finally got around to decorating Evie's room, that and a screaming deal on a nursery set on KSL.
