I knew I wanted to do navy and yellow in his room but wasn't sure about yellow walls. We tried to choose a light shade to avoid it looking like a highlighter (we had a bad experience when trying to paint our bathroom yellow). We were a little unsure at first but now with everything in the room we love it!
The vintage flashcards were the inspiration for the room. My cousin Alicia gave them to me as a gift when I graduated from A&M with a degree in eduation. They were her grandmother's teaching flashcards from the 1960's. I picked out my favorite boyish cards and hunted for 8x10 frames at Goodwill. Once I found all the frame we spray painted them navy and I had 8x10 matching mats cut at Hobby Lobby.
Chandler loves his books and we are always needing more storage for them so Cody made these adorable pallet bookshelves for his walls. My mom's friend gave us the old Radio Flyer wagon. I am still looking for the perfect baskets to go inside for storage.
We also had this old timeline of the Bible poster that we loved but have had a hard time finding a frame big enough for it. When we were trying to decide what to do Cody said that he could probably make something for it. Literally 20 minutes later he walked inside with this amazing frame he just "whipped up" out of some fence scraps. He is unbelievable.
Did you notice the bed? He made that too. Crazy. It is very sturdy and is built high enough to eventually be a trundle bed.
Chandler definitely loves his new room and will take you by the hand to show you!
