Here's a picture of how it looks now. We've since installed new dark laminate floors, which are pretty but it makes the room look a lot darker than before. I know that photo frame is hung really high. I planned on doing a collage around it. Ha! That never happened!
The Ikea Klippan couch is going to stay, but I may get a new cover for it. During my four hour Ikea shopping bonanza last weekend I took a look at the different options for covers-white, natural, turquoise, red, black, banana yellow, and a crazy psychedelic print. The only color I'm really drawn to is the turquoise, but I don't think the boys would be too thrilled. I did happen to stumble on this website, knesting.com, that offers custom Ikea slipcovers. That opened up quite a few possibilities.
We also have an Ikea Expedit that's used as a tv console across from the couch. It's not pictured here. It's a brown-black color, but it could easily be painted.
So, this is my plan so far.
Paint the walls
New Window and Door Casings
What I might need:
Paint the TV Console
New Fan (No Chandelier since we're in TX!)
At least there isn't much to buy! I just need to decide on a theme/color scheme. Here are some inspiration pictures I've been pinning away lately.
Maybe some stripes on the wall?
Or woodwork if I'm feeling really adventurous...
What I really want!
This is one design my older son and I agreed on. I don't see this happening!
The boys dream room, an Xbox Studio.
I don't think the game room will be as exciting as most of these, but they're fun to look at and pick up ideas!
