boy inspiration

Here's just a few of the things I've found to insert some farmhouse/industrial decor into my sons room....

an old painters tray....metal wire baskets....and a super cool old metal plane....thanks Laura!

The large white box is what we keep his Legos in and I think it goes great with his new finds.

So...I'm hoping I'll be done painting his room in the next couple days....only to begin painting his bed and desk....so it'll be a little longer before I can show it to you...but by giving you a peek at what I'll fill his room with....you'll get an idea of what direction I'm going in.

Stay tuned!

  2. That is some really cool stuff. I'll be watching for more posts on the room. My big boy (age 65) loves anything having to do with airplanes, so this caught my eye. I found him a vintage book of airplane illustrations today at an estate sale.

    The wooden airplane I bought one almost like it at a garage sale way back.
