These are pictures of my son's room. We moved into a 1952 Mid Century modern ranch house that had original wood paneling in the family room and in one bedroom. We painted the family room white, which took so many coats to cover, I was bound and determined to make the bedroom work with wood paneling so I wouldn't have to paint again!

The desk and the shelves are built-ins, original to the house. His bedding is from Pottery Barn Kids and Land of Nod. Rug is IKEA, toy box and nautical flags are Land of Nod, desk chair and bed are from Overstock.

Galvanized metal "BOY" letters are from Hobby Lobby. The oar I found at an antique shop for $15 dollars, then painted white and added colored duct tape to make the pattern. The toy buckets are just paint buckets from Lowe's and I stenciled numbers on them.
