Elio's New Room

I painted my son's room a few months ago, but I just couldn't decide how I wanted to decorate it. I knew I wanted to keep it kinda simple.

We had an old deck that was pretty rotten, and my husband's been working hard to get it replaced.
We're crossing our fingers for it being done by the end of summer.
Anyway I used some of the old wood for a wedding sign, and at that point, I knew I wanted to try to incorporate it into Elio's room.

 I tried to choose pieces that had some personality (the really rotten ones!)

 This is the entry wall, you can see from our livingroom, so I wanted to keep it simple.

 I found this quote on Pinterest and I fell in love with it!

 I made this using my Silhouette.

 You can find the prints in this Etsy Shop
(They have some super cute things!) 

 He really does work, and my son loves him.

  This print was a card I found and I put a mat around it. I just love the hearts used as the zebra's stripes.

Of course, if you are going to hang up shelves that are as heavy as these, make sure you hang them on the studs. I used a stud finder which was a lifesaver. And don't forget to attach the boards to the brackets, it's especially important in a kids room.

Thanks for stopping by!

That shelf is super fun! I love the colors of the room! Great job using what you have to recycle!
