PB Inspired

March 19, 2010

Here is Jaymin's "PB" / "surfer" inspired bedroom
I mentioned in this post.
First off, a lovely before picture
{which I am terrible at remembering to take,
hence the outlet covers already removed. :)
Hey you're just lucky I hadn't started painting yet.}
Of course Jaymin had to be a part of every step of the process.
In this pic, he's catalog shopping I believe.
Ok, here it is {pretty much} completed...

And, in case you're wondering,
no {Mr. Officer} these signs are absolutely NOT stolen
from Lawrence, Kansas
while my husband was a student at KU.
We would NEVER subject our little boy
to the fruits of criminal activity.
I know they look VERY authentic,
with their screw holes and beat up edges,
but I opted for the high road
and spent a small fortune buying them from Pottery Barn. ;)

And of course, you remember "the quilt" from my last post...

This is a table I bought from a garage sale.
I really fell in love with its clean lines and thought it had a lot of potential.
I just painted it a simple navy blue.
I loooove this board!
My mom & stepdad made it for Jay for Christmas.
It used to be an old window.
They sanded and painted it and then mounted galvanized steel behind it
so it could be used as a magnetic board.
It even has the original hardware. So cute!

I bought this mirror in college from Hobby Lobby
for a house I lived in with my girlfriends.
It was originally dark stained wood
but I decided to give it a makeover for Jay's room
and hang it at his height.
So yeah, you know these storage systems
are not cheap from Target,
they only come in black, white or natural wood color,
and they're usually poorly constructed.
So I had my stepdad build these
according to the dimensions of the green boxes
and then I painted them navy.
Super simple!
The last thing I'm working on for his room is a skateboard shelf
that I saw {where else?} in PB Teen.
I bought a skateboard off Craigslist for a $1
{seriously, why bother 14-year-old boy?}
and sanded it down and am painting it red.
Only problem is, I can't find these super cool brackets anywhere.
So if you see them somewhere let me know!
That's it! Hope you enjoyed the "tour"!!
I leave you with this beautiful
photographic work from my 3-year-old son.
He's quite the photographer these days
{I just never know the surprises I'll find on my camera phone...}.
I love his eye for detail, drama and content in a photograph.
And he has such a unique point of view...
that could possibly have something to do with his stature...
Happy Friday! :)
