My Boy's Room :: Furniture and Knobs

This was my weekend project and I am happy to say that it is completed! My father in-law who made the furniture from my drawings came and installed it on Friday.

I painted the knobs to go with the 'trucks, cars, traffic' motif in the room. Each knob was $0.97, so it was an inexpensive way to add some personality to the room. I used acrylic and made the outlines with permanent black marker, and once dried I sprayed the knobs with a gloss varnish. It was tricky painting on them because of the uneven surface, so it took me a little longer than I thought. About 1.5 hours.


This is the desk portion of the furniture. It looks fantastic! My father in-law thought of every detail, the shelves are adjustable and the sides have a lip so there's no way for my son to pull them off. There's also a light right above the desk.

This is the bed with the shelves. Outstanding! The bed has drawers on both sides for storage and the drawers are so easy to open and close. All the shelves and drawers provide so much storage! There are lights above the headboard. The green stain on the wood really makes all these pieces more fun and great for a boy's room! My son was very happy with his gift from 'papu'.

Hi Edrian! Thanks for visiting my blog. Great to meet you! Welcome to the blog world. Yes, Holly's article was very inspiring and just the push I needed to get me started on my journey. It has been an amazing experience and I have met some really great people who both inspire and encourage me. I, too, would like to go to the Intensive workshop in Orlando, but don't want to have to register for the main event in order to do that. Maybe next time! Best of luck with your journey! I will add you to my blog list so I can stay updated!

What a great boys room! How wonderful to have a father-in-law to do all that custom woodwork!!
