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.
