Our youngest decided he was ready to have his own room so we tore out the ugly pink carpet in the “junk room” in the basement and did a total transformation on it.
Axel helped with the whole transition starting with paint on the walls. I taped out a mountain pattern on the wall and he and his sister painted it and peeled off the tape. It was a quick way to bring the outdoors in!
We thrifted a dresser which we painted a Norwegian flag on. It’s a little nod to Axel’s namesake. His great great grandfather came over from Oslo in 1890. We also thrifted a lamp, globe and desk while we were at it. Watch as Axel gives you the tour below…
I traded some goods for the rock art (but that’s an easy DIY) and got the vintage pennants and the bed frame from the Farm Chicks Antique Show. If you’re a junker than that’s the place to go YO….first weekend in June every year in Spokane, WA. Love it there!
So that’s all the bits of goodness I have. If you have any questions or suggestions let us know!
