My Room: William

Moscow, ID

We can imagine how satisfying it must feel to put down roots in your own home and Krystal fittingly turned her attention to this great room for her son: After buying our first home last April I was ready to give our 3-year-old a finished, permanent room. My inspiration came from the three vintage globes that I bought at a local antique store for $40.

The big chalkboard I found for $4.99 a while ago at the Goodwill and painted the trim brown. I drew the world on it with chalk for fun until he was old enough to use and draw on it himself. The black, chipped lowboy dresser was only $30 and is still my favorite piece. The two small school chairs were $30 at another thrift store in town. I made the curtains using 6 yards of britton hus fabric from ikea. And the bed I chose and love, is Ikea's trofast extendable bed and mattress which has been perfect for his smallish room.

Thanks Krystal! Readers, you can find Krystal at Turquoise and Chocolate.
