The chalkboard is an actual chalkboard from the Utah State University surplus store. I painted it black and then hand painted the white to look like chalk. It is sealed so that it cannot be erased--thank heaven. The "night stands" are actually file drawer cabinets that I got from the same place. Just a coat of paint, and they make the greatest dresser drawers--they fit his jeans much better than a standard dresser.
I found his desk at the same surplus store as the file drawer cabinets. I painted it to match the rest of the room, and it turned out great. It is super sturdy, and just the right
size to fit at the bottom of his bed.
Floating bookshelves and an antique dictionary stand
are the finishing touches in this fun room
