1891 Bicycle Ad Headboard And Bedroom Re-Do!


Hello Hello Everyone,
As you know I LOVE LOVE LOVE.....LOVE graphics! 
I had an extra canvas lying around, as I used it for my master bedroom headboard in my previous house. It measures 5 feet wide by 4 feet tall, perfect for what I was thinking!

My little guy is 8 years old now, kind of outgrown the kiddie room but definitely still wants a cool room. He is pretty easy going, he loves his Transformers and Lego's and plays Hockey and Dirt Bike Races. We moved into our new house this past October and he wanted a new room style.

His room before.......



And now.....



I chalk painted the canvas with van Gogh Fossil Paint Chivalry Grey, and the graphic in Revenge Black.
I used a projector for this one and then a tiny little perfect brush to hand paint it all. The graphic is an 1891 bicycle ad from my favorite site on earth, Graphics Fairy. How amazing is that??!!
As soon as I was done, my son said he HAD to have it in his room!!


  This nightstand was given to me by another great friend....THANKS Janice....
How ideal to paint it to perfectly match his room?

 If you know anything about Dirt Bikes, his favorite bike is a KTM and their colors are Orange and Black. The bedding couldn't be a better match either, It's Ralph Lauren. It all came together just right and he loves it!

What do you think?

I hope this inspires you to create a fresh new space in your room.

Super Love,
Jenny
