A Beach Boy's Bedroom (Reveal)

2.9K Views
We live very close to the beach and my four year old is the ultimate beach boy. He LOVES to feel the sand between his toes, explore the tide pools and ride the waves! His room is filled with treasures we've found on the beach and antiquing.

When we moved in. His room was pink and he sure wasn't happy about that! Here is the before:

Now it is a very pale green. We color matched Farrow & Ball's Pale Powder and used Benjamin Moore paint. This color goes with anything and is so very restful. His room is filled with one of a kind piece. A driftwood height chart, subway sign chest, a map wreath etc.

    Wonderful - all the attention to detail just makes the room! I love the height chart idea - and simply adore the wreath (I need to know how to do that!)...love it!

      @Nicole Crumbaugh Thanks, Nicole. You cut a cardboard circle for the backing and then you make paper cones with hot glue and then glue them to the cardboard circle. x

    I would have liked a link to the directions for the map art over his bed....

    • Finding Silver Pennies

      @Kc Nordquist I haven't written a post about doing the map wreaths yet. But Marian from Miss Mustard Seed has a tutorial in her book. You trace a plate on cardboard and cut it out. Then you make paper cones with pages. They can be book pages, maps,
