Mappy

I finished decorating Addison's room this week-a project that started last October.
First, I painted his walls Cottage White by Behr. It is my favorite shade of white. Not quite white, not quite ivory.


He loves geography, and already had a few maps in his room. A friend gave me an old Atlas and some maps she found from our local recycling barn, and I decided to take the map theme a bit further.
I secured them to the wall using blue painter's tape. I figure there will be no damage done if he wants to take them off.

Everything in his room is recycled.
The desk and bed were yard sale finds. I mixed my own paint for both pieces using Sunburst, by Behr and some white I had on hand.














The chest used to be mine, and that is what holds his toys.













I got some old wooden crates to create a bedside table. I think I paid $20 for all of them.











The dresser is an old one. My husband thinks his father used to use it when he was younger!







Addison came thrifting with me a few years ago, and loved that little clock. He thought it was so cool that you had to wind it up. The man at the booth gave it to him because he loved it so much!
His room is not always this neat, although he is a very tidy kid. He likes everything in it's place, which makes me very happy! I keep thinking his younger brother and sister will catch on, but so far it is not happening.
Enjoy the weekend!

What a fun room, and a refreshing change from the typical branded-character-theme of many kids' bedrooms!!!

That old Atlas was just meant to find a home with Addison. When he gets older he'll be able to find the countries that changed their names or new ones that aren't pictured yet. How fun.

It looks great! I LOVE those wooden crates and all the maps. While sorting through some old stuff this weekend I found a couple of maps my husband had bought while studying abroad in London and immediately started planning how to incorporate them into the baby's future toddler room! (His nursery will be "space".)

Larissa said...

Love the maps! My boys are older and wouldn't let me do this. Maybe one day i'll have a guest bedroom...

Penny said...

What a wonderful room. LOVE it!

Bekki said...

What a great room for a boy! I just love the maps on the wall and the wooden crates.

Tanja @ Postmodern Hostess said...

I just found your blog linked from Houzz. What a cool idea! I love how the end result is both worldly and casual, with a certain airiness to it. Beautiful.

I've been planning a map-covered entryway for a couple of years. Your project turned out great!

JoLynn said...

If you canon printer setup and you are unable to complete the scheduled tasks? This might happen if your printer is not connected properly to the power source but most of us overlook this because it is so basic. Your first step must be to check the connection between the printer and the power source and see if there are any loose wires or not.
If it is properly connected then you can open the control panel in order to see if the canon printer is set as the default printer or not. If more than one printer is connected and some other printer is set as default then your canon printer will show offline.
