Bedrooms Complete

Finally knocking out Evan's bed brings his big boy room to completion.  I now have both kids' rooms ready for our next family phase.

Here are a few before pictures of his room along with pictures of the bed I purchased on Craigslist for a whopping $25.






I painted the bed dark blue to match the color palette of the room.  It's a great kid's bed - solid wood with additional drawer storage underneath.

The rest of the room came together pretty easily.  I've never been one big on themes.  I picked the robot bedding primarily for the colors, but Evan also appreciates them along with many other things.  That is why I stuck to a color theme rather than a specific character or idea.  You'll notice cars, airplanes, kids art, photographs and many other contributing features.  Sticking to a robot theme would not have been an accurate reflection of Evan.  I would have at least had to go with cars and trucks if I were gonna stick to any one theme.

Here is the completed room:

The chalkboard wall is Awesome. I wish I had one of those in my room. Great overall design and color selection.

I think you created a really complete room that is fun for a kid and thats what is important. I like that you chose dark blue for the bed, that was a nice surprise. BTW themed rooms are terrible...my opinion of course.
