Rustic Boys Bedroom - Part 4- Hanging hats

My son is obsessed with shoes and hats as a result he has hats everywhere.
So I figured might as well make them a part of the d├ęcor and display them, smart huh?

Rustic Masculine Bedroom - Part 3 - Framed Vintage Airplane & Gallery Wall

I found these really cool 1972 amateur photographer's photos at an estate sale. As soon as I saw them I immediately thought, these would make great wall art for someones home.

The pictures were already professionally matted so I used the sturdiness of the matted picture and just attached these wood pieces to create a frame. To get the cool brown color on the wood my husband used the bernzomatic technique. The bernzo technique is used by burning the wood then sanding and sealing it. Aren't they cool?  

Rustic Boys Bedroom - Part 2 -Lamps-spiration

My husband and I had gone on a mini getaway to South Haven, Michigan where I found these adorable lamps at a small antique shop. I knew right away I wanted them for my sons' room. I knew if I added some Edison bulbs that they wouldn't need shades. These lamps became the inspiration for the rest of the room.

Rustic Boys Bedroom - Part 1 - The vision

We recently renovated and decorated my sons’ bedroom. My boys are 19 and
17 years old so I wanted a more masculine and mature look for their room.
The design started as a sketch on paper and a vision in my head of what could be.

My home office makeover

For months our office was used as storage but I envisioned a space where we could come, rest and be inspired. I needed a spot to house all my books and my husbands antique finds. I thought carefully about maximizing our room space, so we went with a floor to ceiling bookshelf that my husband built. I love the results.

Tall boy dresser - Wedding Blessing

My son had been dating his girlfriend a couple years when she dared to ask me for it. Yeah she asked for a tall boy dresser I had sitting in my basement waiting to be painted and restored. Cynthia my son's then girlfriend asked me, "If I marry Julian one day, can that be our wedding gift?" I know what your thinking, "What? (insert mouth open) The audacity of her?" However, I have always admired her for her daring and forward approach. It has gotten her in some trouble but nonetheless I thought this girl is audacious, I like that about her. My son is a bit of an introvert and has a passive personality and she is spunky and outspoken, they compliment each other well.  I laughed off her request for months but she was quite persistent. I finally said jokingly, "OK, you can have it if you promise me at least two grandbabies." The joke stuck, the tall boy dresser has been my bartering tool for grandchildren or perhaps a dowry of sorts. (I'm kidding people).
