House Tour // Atlas’ Room (kinda complete!)

Hey ya’ll! Happy midweek. I am so excited to have Atlas’ little man cave almost complete. With just a few more tweaks, we have a finished room. We painted his room horseradish so it wash’t too white and “cold” looking because Atlas’ room gets great light, we were able to go a little warmer and still have it feel crisp in there. We went back and forth a million time over wall + art vs. wallpaper. There is just so much cool wallpaper available these days. Also, you can make your own. The options are literally endless. Instead of committing to wallpaper (just yet), we went with the white walls + art road for a few reasons.

We are so new to this house, who knows what we are going to do to it. We have some pretty solid ideas, so I suppose the abetter questions is, who knows when we are going to execute our ideas. We made a promise to live here for six months before we do anything major. We have a plan for an extension, merging two rooms together to give me a larger office, finishing the attic to have a door and bathroom and closet, and possibly adding  guesthouse and a garage. Needless to say, the theme of right now is “do what you can with what you have”. Good thing we have a ton of stuff to work with.

If you remember, our first home nursery looked like this.

Our super talented friend Duane painted the tree, Joey refinished the dressers (a craigslist find), the “A” I made for $11, and the rest is an accumulation of big box and flea market finds.  This room was huge and filled with light. It was great. I can’t wait for our little guy to have a big room again. Until then, we have a pretty sweet spot to work with. We started with this.

Three coats of white paint later, we got the room white.

Sigh of relief. I don’t know what it is, but that blue (previous photo) makes me so sad. I love the clean slate. We changed the plan of the room layout a bit because I finally caved into the fact that the huge white chair 1/2 just was not going to work in the current set up for Atlas. I am excited to report that both the campaign dressers are going to make it into the new plan. Yes.

Right where Joey is standing is where we are going to put the twin. We are going to have a large slab of reclaimed wood span across both dresser tops to create one seamless surface. The original plan is kind of sort of still happening, and I think it’s fine to change your mind if things just don’t feel right. That chair ate up way too much floor space to Atlas to play.

We had laid out about five or six options for the gallery wall just like this on the floor before we committed to one. It was between these to layouts, and I liked them both the same, so I let Joey pick. We also have some really really useful advice on how to DIY a gallery wall. It’s not as fussy or complicated as you think. You don’t need to make templates and tape them to the wall or do any sort of dance where you spin round three times on one foot. Are you ready?….

You just need some measuring tape and some time. Promise. Lay it out how you want on the floor, and measure between each piece of art, and mimic on the wall. It’s the easiest gallery wall method we have ever done, and highly recommend you try if you fancy a gallery wall in your home.

Can’t wait to show you this room complete. The last pieces are:

  • Find a kilim rug
  • Hang new light on gallery wall  (it’s SO cute)
  • Hang ceiling light
  • Find storage/shelf
