Boy’s Room Resource {Better Homes and Gardens Bedroom}

by Chris on October 17, 2012

How do you write a post saying, “Hey look! I was in a magazine!” without it sounding like, “Hey look! I was in a magazine!” I hadn’t planned on writing it at all, but then I received droves (love that word) of e-mails and messages asking about resources for it.

Needless to say, my 15 minutes of fame are long gone, but I do want to put the shopping resources in one place for you. So if you’ve been wondering where I found the items in this room, this post is for you!

Better Homes and Gardens bedroom

  • Rug: RugsUSA
  • Gray blanket: Ikea
  • Orange blanket: Ikea
  • Curtains: Ikea
  • Curtain rods: Hobby Lobby
  • Dust ruffle: Meijer (local grocery store) Smile
  • Orange lamp: (Purchased by BHG stylist) I think it’s TJMaxx
  • Throw pillows: TJMaxx

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~{Not pictured in this post, but often inquired about}~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  • Orange locker-style magazine holders: Joann’s

Hey, if I was in a magazine, I’d totally say, “I’m in a magazine!” There’s no one out there who wouldn’t know. You did an amazing job, the room is fantastic – and it’s an all “guy” room! My favorite thing is that lampshade – I love the woven effect and that it’s orange, too. Another thing, his room fits right in here in Austin – home of the Texas Longhorns!

I am just so excited for you that this room was featured! I said it should be in a magazine when you first revealed it! Now it needs to be in MORE magazines!

Carrie October 17, 2012 at 6:22 pm

Woohoo! So happy to see you in there. It’s my all time fave magazine. You deserve it – very creative with the wood pallets & color choices! I still remember you talking about them being piled in your driveway.


Barbara October 18, 2012 at 10:42 am

Of course you have to write about it! We applaud you!! Where did you source all the old wood, by the way? October 18, 2012 at 5:27 pm

Your mom still gets giddy with pride everytime I look at your BH&G article!

JaneEllen October 21, 2012 at 2:44 am

I saw that in my zine. How exciting for you. Loved the wall.I’d love to do that in any room since I’ve been waiting for rooms to get painted for over 6 Think it would insulate the walls also. Congrats.
Talk about patience, didn’t know I had patience, let alone 6 + yrs. worth, lol.

jessica@fourgenerationsoneroof October 22, 2012 at 9:02 pm

Well of course you should write a post about it! It’s not everyday you end up in a magazine, never mind BHG!!!!! Whaaaaaahooooo! Congrats and so happy for you!
