Curtains, Pillows, & the Letter Z



Every time I decorate a room, there comes a point where I’m not sure it’s turning out exactly how I had envisioned it.  That is how I had been feeling about my son’s room, until we hung the gallery wall & made a few other additions.  The game changer?

This marquee letter Z my husband made!  I love the way this corner now boasts green, blue, & orange.

Basically, it’s a 2x4 cut at crazy angles with holes drilled in it & filled with patio lights.  Still working on how to hide the cord…

I also made a faux roman shade, which was another near disaster!  (It was completely crooked!  Luckily re-attaching it at the top straightened it out.  I would not have been shocked if it had really been crooked, since I’m horrible at taking measurements!)

I made a couple of pillows for the bed.  The fabric reminds me of the game Space Invaders.  Anyone remember that game?  Not sure why it brings back that memory, but it made me think it would be great for my video game loving boy’s room.

We framed out some mirrored glass too, so now Zeke can make sure he is put together in the morning, or maybe just check out his guns!

Only three more things to do before this room is considered “finished”…
  • Build a headboard
  • Build a pull-down desk
  • Build a bench
You can check out the plan for the room here.

Since his room looks mostly finished (with the exception of the pile of junk where his desk should be), I am going to be taking a little break from Zeke’s room to whip my daughter’s room into shape.  I will be participating in Linda’s (from Calling It Home) One Room Challenge Linking Party.  I guess I am just a sucker for a challenge!



I will be back Thursday with the plans!

  2. Hard to say what's my favorite thing-- but I do love the Z! And since I have a thing for maps in my house, I'm loving that, too! Thanks for joining the Pretty Preppy Party!
