It’s been nine months that we’ve lived/owned in this little house of ours and we’ve made a pretty good dent in the long list of renovations we had planed for it. Asher’s room was one of the very first rooms I started in on when we moved in. Now that I think about it, I actually had the carpet pulled up and subfloor painted before any of his furniture even made its way into the room. And it’s hands down my favorite room in house. This photo below is the only before photo I have of the room (I apologize). I should snapped a few photos of the space beforehand. It had the original 1970’s carpet intact, which was a bright orange shag, you know typical 70’s vibe, mustard-ish walls, paneling and a ceiling that was just a few shades lighter than the walls. On the flip side, the room had a great layout, tons of natural light and a super functional nicely sized closet. A little paint, new hardwood floors, trim and a light fixture and this room was looking much brighter in no time! Here’s a full tour of the space and below (very bottom) i’ve listed and linked up where you can find everything! -xo With the solid hardwood flooring, I need something soft for Asher to play on. I placed this 9X12 rug in the space and it fit perfectly! Protects the floors as well! You can read all about it HERE.

This large framed print is such a staple piece in the room. It’s a photo of Asher and Jacob that I snapped on one of our many California camping adventures. This was Idyllwild, CA – San Bernardino National Forest – a must see. Breathtaking views of the low desert (Palm Springs, Cochella, Desert Hot Springs, Palm Desert) and Salton Sea. My lovely friends at Framebridge printed and framed this beauty for me. Every time I look at it, I am always reminded of that wonderful little adventure we had. Yes, that’s a trump stump. It also makes for a perfect little nightstand. I happened to be driving through our neighborhood this past summer when I spotted a large pile of wood with a cardboard “free” sign on it. So I pulled over, threw one in the back of my car, stripped all the bark off of it and let it dry out for 6 months or so. I love the raw texture it brings to the room. It definitely compliments the space. I went with a Tuft + Needle mattress on his bed. Seriously like sleeping on a cloud! It’s the most perfect amount of thickness and so very comfy! That cute little bunny is actually a nightlight! So much better than the plug-in ones! If you look close that’s paneling on that wall. I primed and painted it and it turned out perfectly! I always joke that it’s “vertical shiplap” ha! Chip + Jo would be proud! With this being the fourth room asher’s had in his three years of life, I definitely put a lot of thought into it. I wanted it to be light, airy, functional and easy to change if need be. I had always been super inspired by Jordan Ferney’s boy’s room and this shelving unit sparked from that. The entire system was less than $40 dollars and instead of using the white precut shelving that was suggested, I had lowes cut a couple of 12ft pine boards in half. (Yes they will cut them for you in the store! Have your measurements ready!) It’s a perfect shelving system for kids and all of their knick knacks. I’ve been storing a good majority of Asher’s books on it and little trinkets that hold a special place in my heart.
