Carson's finished room....

Ugh, the flu virus hit around here. I have been busy taking care of sick people. Everyone is back at school and work though. Praise the Lord!!

I told you all I would post Carson's room, I just love how it turned out.

He loves his new "big bed"! He sleeps on both sides, makes for a mess in the morning. we got his bed at Oak express, if you live in the Little Rock area, check that place out, fabulous quality and prices.

I absolutely love these book ledges from Pottery Barn. We had these in his old room too, but I just love them.

I repainted his desk and hutch red and glazed over them a bit too, to give it a worn look. The chalkboard frames were just ugly rooster prints, And I painted over them with chalkboard paint. They look much better now! I framed a star as well, just added some burlap and glued on the star.

I told you about the 4.99 pillows from Ballard's. What a steal!!

I ordered a natural color slipcover to cover his cowboy chair, a great expensive way to change a chair.

I hope you like his room as much as I do. I had fun working on it, and am happy to report that Carson loves it.

I'm going to get back into blogging, I have been so busy and lazy as the same time, HA! I'm going to try to blog EVERYDAY! Now that's a challenge for me!

I guess I better get back to laundry and ironing.

Happy hump day.

Darling! I just want to say I think your three boys are adorable. I love seeing cute little boys and a happy mama. I'm pregnant with my third boy (though I do have a girl in the mix.) I might have to steal some ideas for my boys' rooms.

I love the room! I found your blog from Just A Girl and am so glad I did! Where did you find the comforter? I am looking for a denim or chambray duvet cover or comforter for my little boy's room.
