this week i’m sharing some out takes from my boys room featured in the Land of Nod catalog.
welcome to luke and liam’s room. did you know this used to be my room growing up (well at least until the 7th grade when i moved all my belongings to the basement in an effort to not share a room with my sister anymore)? if you are new here, i should mention that i live in the house i grew up in. it’s crazy. it’s awesome. it’s weird. but mostly it’s super cool. i’ve watched this room, in particular, go through many makeovers over the years according to who resided in it. at first it was my sister and i (ages 9 + 4, to start with). than just my sister for the longest of times. then when my family (as in my husband and i) moved back in it became my daughters room (this is her room now) and then we moved everyone around when # 4 came along. now my two middle boys share this room. and come to think of it, it is the first time boys have lived in this room which is, in fact, still claimed by my sister, as her name carved in the closet door states.
you can shop the look of this room right here! but here is a list of some of the resources :
paint / winter wheat by benjamin moore /chalkboard paint
bunk beds/ land of nod
light fixture/ up and atom light fixture
wire baskets / land of nod
desk / little sloan leaning desk
desk chair / class act desk chair
rug / chevron and on rug in grey
robot drawings / hand drawn by luke, age 7 (he was super proud and i was too)
window shades / the home depot
string lights / ikea
the mouse hole / this was a super fun addition we recently made connecting the boys room to the nursery. the kids think it’s so fun to crawl through and i think it just adds an extra touch of magic.
i’ll be wrapping up the room tours next week with my dining room/playroom. (and again…. if you have e-mailed me with a question or left a comment, i promise i will get back to you).

I’m glad you mentioned that Luke did the robot drawings. I was wondering about that the whole time I was scrolling down. He SHOULD be proud!! Those drawings are amazing. Tons of details and pattern. Quite a little artist. I’m a fan, already!

What a beautiful way to have the home change and shift over time. I love the little archway and the chalk wall. So much fun! Are the string lights LED powered?

thank you whitney! i don’t think the lights are LED. they are a few years old. they have more of the warm yellow glow.

I love the tunnel/kid size mouse door. Where does it go? Did you create it? Was it easy to make or do recommend hiring a professional? I love that your house is FUN!

thank you, theresa! it’s my goal to make our house a very fun one! the mouse hole connects to my youngest boys room. i designed it but i hired a professional. i don’t think it would be too difficult for a person who is really handy or can do drywall. xo . t

Hey Trina, love Luke’s robot drawing. Wondering if the boys have been able to erase and draw over it? Wanted to use this idea for a playroom but unsure how well the chalk comes off the chalkboard paint.
Commented on July 7th, 2016 at 2:47pm
Thank you! We wash it and reuse it. It will never have that super crisp black look again, though….as you can never get all of the chalk off…but I like the worn look. Also, if your walls are really bumpy then it is harder to clean, write on, etc. My walls are not super smooth but it works well enough for us. Hope this helps. xo . t
