REVEAL! Vintage Airplane Bedroom

Done! 

Finally!
I am tired!

 

This is the view into the room from the hallway. The map wreath found a home on the door.

This is the long wall across from the door and the closet. I really do love the headboard.

Like the paper airplane I painted on the wall? The trail is electrical tape! Found the idea here in this unbelievable bedroom.

There is the luggage tag lamp, which I decided to paint black,

and my reclaimed fence turned into wall art.

 Got the clip boards for $1.99 each at Target. Then, I printed some images from Graphics Fairy and displayed my fun telegram announcing Everett's birth. Buy your own here.
The kids found a big branch on a walk with dad and it was the perfect size to use as a curtain rod.

The curtains are cloth drop cloths which I just cut off at the bottom and attached with  shower curtain rings. Total project was $14.99, including the curtains, rings and brackets to hold the stick.

I think the dresser is my favorite piece in the room.

I made a copycat Ballard board to display some sentimental items.  The "Happy Journeys" block print was made by the Everett my Everett is named after.

 Here is a ski pass his godfather made for him when he was 1 week old!

I got my big airplane from Hobby Lobby and made little wooden discs with vintage images to hang above the closet.

I am just in love with the room and how it turned out. I spent next to nothing on it....I didn't save receipts or anything, but my guess is under $100.

This was a really big project and now that it is done, I am looking around and wondering, "hmmmm, what next?

P.S. The paint was from WalMart...believe it or not it went on easily and covered great! The color is Cinder Pebble Gray

  1. Love this! So creative. It's giving my some inspiration for my son's room. I REALLY like the headboard, curtains, and dresser. Awesome job – thanks for sharing!

  2. Kim – What an absolutely wonderful room full of DIY and recycled goodness. Lucky boy!

  3. It's a gorgeous room, and I love that you spent so little to make it look so great!

  4. Very creative!!

  5. I linked to this over at http://arecoveringperfectionist.wordpress.com because it reminds me of the FlyLady! She says FLY stands for "Finally Loving Yourself". I'm always looking for creative ways to display her little quotes in my home because she's really helped me, but a lot of her products just don't fit my style. I really liked your FLY sign with the paper airplane. I think it would be great with a hot air balloon theme, too!

  6. What a great room! Nice to see boy rooms in blogland. I love your creativeness.

  7. I love your boys bedroom. I've been working on a shared boy's vintage airplane/travel themed bedroom for awhile now, and lost steam. I've got some fabric on the way, and you have given me some fun ideas (love the paper airplane!) – I found you accidentally and am so glad I did! I hope you will stop by my blog too – it's so new, but I love to hear people's thoughts…

  8. Amazing job, and a girl after my own thrifty heart — we're moving my son into the guest room and I wanted a vintage airplane-themed room for him — your hard work gave me just the inspiration I needed. Thank you so much and congratulations, it's truly amazing!

  9. Wow! this roon is so great!

    Where did you get the “FLY” letters? Or did you make them? If so… mind sharing how?? LOVE IT!

  11. My husband works for an airline and I have a son OBSESSED with airplanes, so I am wanting to create an airplane themed room for him. I absolutely love your FLY letters above the bed and would love to know how you made them/where you got them!

  12. Amazing post, thank you. It’s so difficult to arrange a bedroom for boy. I did it for my son recently. I bought him great red racing car bed , curtains looking like car garage and grassy carpet. All together it looks amazing for me – but it’s nothing comparing to yours art.

  13. Kim, you did an amazing job on the room. Such a sweet room for your son. I love all the details, especially the branch turned curtain rod.

  14. I just love what you have created! What a master piece of a room! Your son is very lucky! Thank you for the inspiration and ideas! Magnificent!

  15. I love your creative room! Thanks for sharing, I was especially happy that you added what color paint you used for the walls. I have been looking for a good gray for my boys room, I’m going to check it out! I also really like how you didn’t paint the walls all the way up, my mind is spinning now! :)

    • Thanks so much, Miranda! I seriously love the room…too bad my son now sleeps on his sister’s trundle in her room! Hope he will enjoy it one day-haha

  16. Howdy are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying
    to get started and create my own. Do you require any
    coding expertise to make your own blog? Any help would
    be greatly appreciated!

    • I do use WordPress.org. I will say it is much trickier than blogger. You can make lots of changes and alterations with no code knowledge in Blogger, but definitely need to know some code for WP. However, on WP.org you own your content but with Blogger they do. Hope that helps! Kim

  17. I love this vintage airplane room. It brings back sweet memories of my oldest sons room when he was a toddler, we also had an airplane theme. I still have the Pottery Barn quilt we had on his bed. He is now 14 and his style has changed so much since then. I do love the pallet bed you created. My boy wants a barn wood headboard himself, I need to finish a few other projects around here and get started on that for him! Anyway, I enjoyed looking at this room, darling! Jeanne

  18. Do we know where the pillow with numbers came from?

  19. How did you treat the stick fro the curtain or did buy it. I’ve been trying to do this but im afraid of bugs. Plz email me thx in advanced.
