I cannot start a post with all of that yellow, so we shall start with an after. Dash’s room did not require a ton of work. We had the chimney plastered and of course refinished the hardwood floors but the main project was paint and decor. I knew I wanted timeless “boy” elements with items that Dash wouldn’t necessarily grow out of quickly. I never really start a room with a color scheme, I find things I love, put them together and it usually comes together. I don’t think that necessarily says anything about my decorating skills but that I tend to like the same colors etc.
For this room I started with the yellow thrift store spray-painted bookshelf <3 and the Elephant curtains from Overstock here. The blue dresser and the grey dresser (from my uncle that has passed) were refinished by my talented friend Kim Koons from ReFind. I have many items of furniture in my home that are very special to me. I believe that those things pull everything together as well as make my heart happy when I see them. Dash loves his room and all the storage for Legos and such! I stained and painted the captains bed from a glossy orange varnished wood. I love those finds (no one else wants) that you can remake into something great.
