Tuesday Tour: Kane's Room

I'm normally not a theme kind of girl, but I guess if I had to pick a theme for Kane's room it would be travel mixed with a touch of sports (his daddy is a coach after all). These shelves I got at Hobby Lobby along with the little planes and tractor. I love the blocks, they spell out his name.

I love antique furniture! This little display is where the sports comes in to the room.

This little shelf use to be white. I used spray paint to make it blue. The letters that spell out Kane on the wall I got at (where else?) Hobby Lobby. I spray painted them red and then used craft paint to decorate them.

I love these buckets! They are great for storing small things. This one Kane keeps his action figures in. It's great because when it's time for him to clean them up he can just scoop them all up and dump them in. There is also one with books in it (above on the blue shelf), and one with stuffed animals in it. You can buy these at Pottery Barn for who knows how much, or you can do what I did and go to Home Depot and buy them for a few $$$s and then (you got it) -Spray paint them!

I went to Wal-mart and bought a U.S. map, cut it in half, crumbled it up, put it in really concentrated tea, let it dry, and then framed it for this look below. I found the chair at a flea market, and the globe at a yard sale!!!

I love Kane's bed. I bought the frame at an auction for $25. When I got it rust had taken it over. I had Nolan sand it down for me, and then I (you guessed it!) spray painted it! (did I mention how much I love spray paint?) The sign on the wall was attached to a huge, wooden stork that was stuck in our yard when we came home from the hospital after having him. Isn't it cute?!

Kane loves pirates. His grandma Shirley got him this little tin sign to hang in his room. He thinks it's pretty cool.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the tour of Kane's room. Make sure to come back next Tuesday for a tour of another room in my house.
