elden's new room: the reveal

We're done! And I couldn't be happier! Jon is a rock star and finished painting the closet door while I was at work today so when I got home he could install it and we could hang everything up.
Initially we set out for a woodland theme for this room but since we had several bicycle items that matched the color scheme pretty well and the room was barren without them we decided to just go with it. We eventually want to add a few shelves to house Elden's books on the same wall his bed is on but that's on the back burner for now. The nursery will have the same colors on the trim, walls, ceiling and wainscoting but we are planning on picking up a few new items (carpet) for there in addition to some new items my mom is sewing for it. I am absolutely in love with his room and I hope it grows well with him.

The details:
  • bicycle pictures made by my mom and sister; reused from nursery
  • all furniture was second-hand from my work's classifieds
  • curtains were from our first apartment
  • bedding on clearance from Target
  • carpet from IKEA
  • owl everything was already owned and reused in this room
  • moose wall hanging from Target
  • deer head from Oriental Trading on clearance for $5
