The Green Room
Hey friends~ Well, the name says it all. It's a green room alright. ;) Our youngest son, Luke, really wanted to have the color green on his walls in his new room. "Like the green in the trees, Mom." The color is called Derbyshire, by Sherwin Williams and I have to say, I may have had my doubts but now, we all love it. I thought this was interesting, from doing a little google search, the color green can represent; safety, harmony, & stability, and used to relax, revitalize, and bring peace. (Not sure how accurate that may be but it sounds lovely anyway.)
Here's what this room looked like before the remodel.
There used to be super heroes on the walls & they were also pretty dinged up, the carpet & fan had been the same for 14 years. It was time for an update. This wood headboard I made for Caleb when he was younger, and we recently passed it on to their cousin.
First, the board & batten wall treatment, or I guess it should be just battens? I decided to use a PVC product instead of wood on this project. The boards are straight and it was actually cheaper than the wood boards I would've used. Here are a few pictures of the process. (Lots of measuring involved here but I'm not including that because everyone has different sized walls.) My suggestion is to find your center point first and where you'd like the battens to end on each side of the wall and work accordingly with spacing. Using a level to get plumb lines along the way.
After attaching the battens with my Airstrike brad nailer, I caulked and filled all the nail holes and seams, gave the boards a light sanding, then began the painting process. It took three coats to get full coverage.
The rest of the walls in his room are painted in Alabaster, Sherwin Williams. (My favorite white paint color.)
We partnered with City Scene for this Zander comforter set and Luke just loves it, apparently so does Teddy.
This thrifted vintage chair was another DIY. It was dated with brown leather and old stain. After a couple coats of Annie Sloan Chalk paint (yes girl, you can paint leather), a little sanding, and a coat of Annie's clear wax, it looks hip enough to put in this cool kid's room. ;) A good $15 investment. (I already had the paint & wax.)
The metal letters for Luke's name, I found at one of my local favorite small shops, Wirewood Market, in Altamonte Springs, FL.
Luke is enjoying his new room and promises to keep it nice and clean! ;)
