Boy's Vintage Transportation Bedroom
It was roughly a year ago that we began working on Michael's room with Mike painting his old beds blue just before we moved into this house. With art on the walls and curtains on the window, I now feel satisfied calling this space complete.
Although I've documented a number of steps toward completion over this year including the industrial gear gallery wall and $.89 poster frames, the final project was completing the curtain rod and curtains.
Using a length of electrical conduit, Mike made a curtain rod inspired by the DIY Bay Window Curtain Rod project at Here Comes the Sun.
We used a cafe rod bracket set to hang the conduit after Mike bent it, and we attached fittings at the ends as industrial finials. We bought all of that at Lowes.
I bought some actual blackout curtains for this room, but once they were up I found they were not as effective as the DIY blackout curtains in Sophie's room. I ended up doing the same project for this space using regular store bought curtains and blackout fabric again.
This room suits Michael's warm personality and classic interests in all things transportation. It is just what I envisioned for our guy!
