The latest room makeover that I had a chance to help with is a show-stopper for sure, especially if you’re a fan of the Bulldogs and buffalo checks!  My friend, Brooke, had a vision in mind for her son’s room, then totally rocked it with the follow-through with the projects she did to make it happen!



I helped her with the buffalo checked mural, which is one of our favorite parts.  This is one of our custom printed removable wall coverings that we can produce at our graphics company, like I’ve done in several rooms in my own house.  (Contact me if you’re interested in knowing more about these!)  And Brooke did the rest of the work by painting the existing furniture she had and choosing the perfect bedding.

Here’s how the room was before…




And here it is now!



Brooke chose the perfect paint colors to totally refresh the pieces they already had.  On the walls is Sherwin William’s Fundamental White, the black is SW Pure Black, and the red bed is SW Positive Red.







And the gold hardware choice is just fantastic!



On one wall, she hung their collection of Georgia Bulldog art in a small gallery for an updated, fresh display.



In case you missed it, the tutorial for the pillow is here. And the large round mirror over the bed is the perfect understated statement for the bold checked wall!



Even though this is technically a football room, I think Brooke knocked it out of the park!! Am I right??  Another case of a fabulous room on a budget that doesn’t break the bank with a little creativity and DIY.
