Our Son’s Room Make-Over

Well, it’s been more than two years since our son lived in this room. Trust me, it looked completely different then! 20120822-092714.jpg
The bed and nightstand came from our condo in San Francisco and this wonderful chest was purchased, not long ago, from an estate sale.

The fiber glass plantation shutters do a wonderful job keeping the heat out of the room, in the afternoon. So, I’m not going to worry about covering the sweet little window.

Speaking of sweet, I am a sucker for anything dog related. I got this little statue at Veranda, several months ago, and just love it.

This is my baby boy at about 18 months. He’s now 23, married and serving in the Navy. My, how the years fly by!

This Jack and Jill style bathroom is off of the bedroom. I shower is shared by what used to be my daughter’s bedroom. Her side of the bathroom is still under construction. My husband’s office/train and dust room is also a work in progress!


Well, it’s time to buckle down and spend a couple of hours in my office, pushing papers around and paying bills. When I hit the winning ticket, I’m going to hire a full-time assistant to take care of little details like that! Trouble is, I never buy lottery tickets, so the odds are really in their favor.

Have yourself some fun today!

      Hi Mary Ann! Thanks for stopping by! Have you done anything in your son’s room, now that he’s in college? I guess he hasn’t officially moved out, so that’s quite a bit different!

  3. I am so loving that gorgeous chest!…Looks like we have the same plantation shutters…I love mine!…Barb, but then my favorite thing in the room is the bench under that beautiful window!..Such a very sweet painting of your son!

      Hi Donnamae,
      I remember being upset with my husband at the time, because my son had on scuffed shoes. Today, that’s one of my favorite parts! I was so anal/uptight back then. If you think I am now… 🙂

  5. Hi Barbara,
    Just saw your beautiful home at Debbiedoos. It is gorgeous and beautifully decorated as well. Those kiddies do grow up much too fast don’t they; my baby is 41 – can’t believe it myself. Thanks for sharing your lovely home. I don’t have a blog but I love looking at so many others. Peggy
