Changing it Up … The Evolution of a Little Boys Room {Curtains}


If you follow me on Facebook, then you know that I’ve been working on the curtains for Mason’s room. It’s really quite a small change that makes a big difference in the look of the room.

If you are having a hard time remembering … here’s a look at what his room looked like before. Just remember it’s a work in progress :)



This is how the room looks now. I moved the curtain rod up a good six inches to make the room feel a little taller. I’m not sure why I ever hung them any lower … maybe to fit the curtain panels as they were!? LAZY! Then I just added a band of gray and white chevron fabric to the bottom of each panel so that they went to the floor. I don’t know about you, but I am extremely anti high-water curtains, so this simple fix did the trick!




I love having a new pattern introduced in the room. Even though it’s a small amount … and pretty neutral, it’s still a pattern, so I will go ahead and give myself a pat on the back for that! (If you know me you know I have a hard time adding in pattern … weird, I know.)




Here’s another look at the progress on the other side of the room. I’m wanting to start on the desk area next (it will be in the empty space to the left of the closet). But first I have to decide whether I should do white or stained planking on the wall. What do you think? I have always pictured it stained, but am feeling like the room is getting a little dark with the dark bedding and curtains. What to do, what to do!




Slowly but surely we are making progress. Here is a run down of what still needs to be done. I’m hoping to have it done by the end of the month so I can move onto something else … we shall see!!!
