Yep, I have 3 cuties!
This is the only room shot you're getting, but it is the best view :) He IS an 11 year old boy and I do NOT clean his room so I can not turn around a take a picture. You would see his dresser and book case and and they are both a total mess all the time!
Every frame above came from the thrift store. I didn't go one day and say I need 10 frames, I went every week for awhile and bought neat frames. I knew 6 needed glass and thin frames and on the others I wanted pretty wood but that didn't work. I changed the wood tone on almost every thing on the wall above his headboard and I did not sand or stain. I'll share how I did it soon. His bedding came from Ikea and tied it all together.
The snake skeleton in the upper right started the whole room because I ask him what he wanted in his room and he said a snake skeleton. It stumped me for awhile! I did check out real skeletons- pricey! Then I found this cool image and this idea was born. Some of these images came from Graphics Fairy, I LOVE that site. For the others I googled animal skeletons and then just black and white animal images. I printed them on card stock and popped them in my painted frames. They are brad nailed to a 1 x 2 that I weathered to look like barn wood, it was so easy. Toggle bolts hold it firmly to the wall.
I glued light colored burlap to cardboard and then glued his collection in frames with a hot glue gun. I knew I could always peel them off when the time comes to change things up. Call me crazy, but I think collections look better in frames on walls than in ziploc baggies in drawers! I used Elmer's glue to adhere the burlap because it is cheaper and less toxic than spray mount type products.
This shelf above was country cute with some lace and hearts I ripped right off. This is more of his collection. Seeds, nuts and shells!
Here the some of the 8 x 10 frames I used for the black and white images. These were cheap when they were new and were really cheap at the thrift store.
Here the only before picture I could find.
