{Finalizing} Wes' New Bedroom

I've been doing a lot of work on Wes' new bedroom these past few weeks.  We cleaned out tons of toys, I sold his bunk bed, had the carpet cleaned and painting starts this week.  I also found a local artist to do a great paint treatment on his desk.  I can't wait to see how it turns out!

I found this chest of drawers at my local Home Goods by total accident.  It was such a bargain and was exactly what I needed, so I couldn't pass it up.  I love the drawer pulls, but may need to change them to ones with a more vintage feel.  We'll see.  Wes loves them!

I couldn't justify spending a lot of my budget on custom bedding, so I'm combining custom with this blue quilt I found at Target.  The stripe fabric will be used for the bed skirt and a pillow.  The neutral sheets will help to keep it simple.  I'm still undecided if I'm going to do any type of fabric treatment on the window.  If I do, it will be something very tailored.  The airplane art is one of three we're using...somewhere.  Their vintage (old) pieces I picked up at an antique shop last summer.

I tested two paint colors - I'm going with the one on the left.

Wes will be with his grandparents for a week in July, so I'm planning to finish two major projects (featured on a previous post) while he's away.  I broke down and hired someone to help me with these, too.  I'm finally learning my limitations and DIY projects are one of them!  I'll let you know how they turn out when I do my final post on this project. 

While doing a little accessories shopping for clients, Wes picked out a few goodies for his room.  He was really excited to find these little treasures.  

Wes told me he wants his room to be a place he can go and "just think about things".  I can't wait to make that happen for my favorite person in the world!

Thanks for reading,
