Jordan's Room Reveal

So, our entire house has had an overhaul in the past two months. Jordan's room was a big one. He had an old futon, a dresser that was falling apart, and oh yeah. His room started out pink.

I found this dresser at a garage sale. I was blown away when I saw the exact same dresser in Better Homes and Gardens (they painted theirs a glossy green).

He got actual curtains, he got our old TV, and his room got reaaranged!

One thing I've always wanted to do in his room were hang posters. But I didn't want to just hang them. I found these frames at a garage sale for $3 each. They had really pretty pictures in them, but I knew I would like the posters better. Right now, he is REALLY into the Avengers, and has always been into Star Wars.

I used this table from the girls' room..

and painted it like this, in glossy black with metallic silver on the bottom.

My brother in law had some old fence posts that he was throwing away, so as an experiment, I painted them the colors of the room and nailed them together. I don't hate it, but I am not in love with it. But he likes it, so I guess that's all that matters, right?

Oh, and just so you know, to take all of these pictures I just kept moving Legos from one spot to another. I know this picture is blurry, but here is the desk. It's COVERED in Legos.

Legos will overtake your LIFE. I never realized how many he had until recently. They are EVERYWHERE. Ugh. Lego men, lego boats, lego jet planes, lego Ninjagos, LEGOS LEGOS LEGOS!!!
