Little Boys Bedroom and an old crate

Hi Peeps, last weekend I went to one of my favorite stores in the Olympia area Wisteria Cottage One of the things I bought there was yet another old crate...haha..one can never have enough. So here is what I did with it...It is now serving as a nightstand

 and perfect display for R2D2

The airplanes are from the Potterybarn Kids 
I know I know I need curtains...I just took down the old Potterybarn curtains..they are dark blue and I want something lighter and brigher for the Spring...
The bedding is from Ikea

 


  
displayed on the bookshelf is a shark painting that my Mother-in law painted for Robbie last summer and a real shark jar.....gotta love EBAY ...yikes
I made this banner a couple of years ago when Robbie was on a "Godzilla trip" and you can't exactly find this kind of deco in the stores..haha
 



well that's it for today...just wanted to share my new litte crate .....If you want to see more on how I display old crates in my home click here for-love-of-old-crates . Off to get ready for a dinner with friends. Happy Weekend! I hope you all come back for my next post!

  1. Your sons room is so cute! I love his bed. The crate turned on its side makes such a great side table. I love how that looks. The planes hanging from the ceiling are a great feature too.

  2. Robbie is a lucky boy! I love the crate, it is just the right size. We have that same R2D2....was like $120 and my kids never played with him. We tried to make him bring us drinks, like a real robot servant. lol! I also think your banner is very creative! I am so afraid of sharks, I couldn't handle those teeth. eek!

  9. I love this room! I had to stop myself this afternoon from buying a huge airplane for my son's room because it was $$ but I loved it. Love how you have yours hanging. Perfect.

  16. What a fun room! I love the way you put this together. I especially love the sunk-in frames on the wall above your sons bed. Makes me think "hum.....perfect place for lego collections". We might have to steal your idea. :) Our Simply Create Link party is going on right now. I would love to have you link up, as I'm sure my followers would like to see what you created too. Hope to see you soon!
