Shutters, Finally!

Here is one last look at the room redo that I did for J. Smooth's (8 yrs. old) room.
Burlap curtains

Barn Stars
This one lights up for a "night light".

The two striped barns stars are actually made from an old barn using reclaimed wood. I purchased them at Wrapsody in Hoover.
Antique chair with classic books.

And finally.....the shutters!

I purposely allowed the natural wood to peek through in some places.
The star, if you will remember ,was green. I got it at Kirlands in the green clearance for less than seven dollars. I spray painted it black, then took some copper paint and hit the relief areas to get the bronze look.

My mother bought the burlap coffee beans sacks at an auction. I used one here, and plan to use more (bolster pillow and other shaped pillows). I also used one in another project (to come).
The quilt was from a lead from Cherry Hill Cottage.

The shelf and plate rack were items that I had put into a giveaway pile. Glad I decided to give them a second look. Big Daddy's paternal grandpa actually made the shelf, his maternal grandpa made the plate rack-that is now holding pictures.
The bed it not what I was given to us by my MIL. I recently gave away J. Smooth's twin bed (and cursed the very days that I had to change sheets on it. Changing sheets on a bunk bed is not only back breaking, but it can cause ugly thoughts to go through one's head). This is the bed for now, and quite honestly, I am in no hurry to change it, I know that I will eventually come acorss the bed that will fit this space better.
On the right of the bed is an open space. I have plans to use my father's childhood desk in that space. I am going to paint it black and then give it a good sanding and put it in that very spot.
Til then,
This is Smooth's room redo.
Stay tuned...

Leigh it turned out GORGEOUS! I know you are so tickled. How many times did you just walk into the room to 'behold' it after it was finished? I do that :)

Awesome room! Love the burlap, stars, and that headboard. I've been toying with using shutters as a headboard in my new place, but haven't quite decided yet. xoxo

The space is just lovely - and the shutters are perfect for that spot! The star looks fab on them, too.
