Hudson transitioned from a crib into a bed recently, and we thought that if he’s going to be in a big boy bed now, he needs a big boy room to match.
So we headed over to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena for their monthy flea market to be inspired…
Pat vetoed these British chairs because he thinks they’re over done, but I think they’re brilliant.
I still want them.
Here’s what we ended up with:
- Pendleton Wool Blanket
- Salvaged wood shelf
- Army Surgery trunk that dated back to the 1920’s (But it had paint chipping off, so I didn’t want to bring it into Hudson’s room, instead Pat happily put it in his office)
- And half of an old canvas army tent that we still haven’t figured out what to do with yet.
We painted a Mark Twain quote on his wall.
We put up the feather decal when we were decorating Hudson’s nursery before he was born. We kept it, because A) I like it, and B) when people see it they think I painted it…and sometimes I let them believe that.
We were inspired by the Ace Hotel, the flea market, the sea, and old army stuff.
We finally finished, and while it’s no Ace Hotel, Hudson likes it, and that’s really all that matters.
