Boys Bedroom

We've had fun decorating the boys room,
using what we have on hand, and finding some good deals here and there.

For a long time, I've wanted to make a "missionary wall", with a big world map and pictures of all of our missionaries in our family. I thought the boy's room would be the perfect spot for this. And so today, with the help of Jolyn, we busted out the vinyl and created our own little version.

Large map of the World- $5, Deseret Industries Thrift Store.
(One day I'd like to repaint the gold frame navy or black with metal paint. )

Jolyn and I couldn't stop at just one with the vinyl, though!
We made some perfect artwork for our little Star-Wars themed room.

Vinyl, $5.

And on to other accessories....

I found these navy curtains on clearance at Target ($10).
The silver curtain rod (free) was from our other house.

We bought this vintage looking Star Wars poster at K-Mart ($6), Frame Target ($12, clearance).

And we repainted the boy's bunkbed with the same paint that had on hand from when we painted the dressor. (Pics still to come)
And later we found a funky grey-shag rug sealed the deal.
Target, $90.
And Hyrum couldn't live without this Master Yoda plush toy/pillow, so we got that too.
We splurged.
Target, $20.

And another splurge, bedding,
Pottery Barn $240 for 4 pillowcases and 2 duvet covers.
I know, I know. Pricey.
But the print was worth the price. It was just what we wanted!
Two of the pillowcases were shipped, but the other bedding is on back-order so we'll have to wait a few weeks to see the final product!

Total: $388.00

Remaining in our budget:

$500-$93(dresser & paint)=$407

$407-$388 (bedding, curtains, art, accessories)=$19

Whew, we're getting close!
