We actually had this room 99% finished back in July. I just had one thing to add before I took the photos of it. Anyhow, we tackled both of the boys rooms at the same time, check this out. Josiah’s room is so fun – he loves maps so off we went. Here’s the before:
And the fun afters . . . the desk was my great-grandma’s. My Mom gave it to Josiah and it is a sweet reminder of his great-grandma who had it last. He loves it and spends tons of time re-organizing it. Besides that, the dresser and one cube of shelves everything else is new. The walls are a green that we pulled from the huge map – yay for an awesome Ikea statement piece. We left the bunk unfinished because the wood tones are in the map too.
I love how Ikea has all those inspiration room sets when you first walk through – thanks for the great idea to put a couple of magnetic boards behind the map! Josiah loves that it doubles as a place to display whatever he wants. He sleeps on the bottom right now and uses the top bunk as a little reading nook. We’re thinking eventually of taking the bottom bunk out and making a little fort down there of some sort – we’ll see.
That ninja quote on the left (below) is soooo Josiah. I saw it somewhere and knew it had to be in his room somehow. I just made up a little deal in Photoshop and had it printed on a fabric wall cling (it made another appearance here). Love it!
Josiah’s closet was another one that needed a little help to make it useful for him. I’m so thankful for my super handy husband who added some shelves and lowered the rod for him. So much more functional now (Zac’s is currently in the laundry room tending to another closet – I can just feel the functionality coming!).
