Newness - Cardinals and Browns Bedrooms

The Crafty Gals blogging challenge for this month is Newness! I thought I'd share the boys bedrooms that hubby and I made over the week before Christmas. heard me right...the week before Christmas - as if Christmas isn't already busy enough.  Not one room....but two. They were so surprised and happy with the new rooms!  Tomorrow I'll post how I used my cricut to change up the plain white bookcase. Be sure to check out the other crafty gals blog posts by clicking the links on the side of my blog.

Before - Blue Boat Room
After - Red Arizona Cardinals Room

Awesome Banner and football book case!

Here's the Cleveland Browns room!
Before - Harley Davidson Room

After - Cleveland Browns Room

New Decor!

As you can see, the 1st room was much more work as it took 2 coats of paint to get the blue out. Plus the bookcase took some time and assembling the new furniture took some time too. Many folks have asked about the curtains. The curtains were purchased from Walmart. They originally were shower curtains that I cut up the middle, sewed, and hung.  They look fabulous and were cheaper and nicer than the panels I had originally considered. The bedding and trash cans were purchased from Walmart as well.

The loft beds were purchased from Ikea as well as the chair futon, cover, and curtain wires and clamps (love these)! The banners were purchased from Amazon at only $20 each. NFL Arizona Cardinals 3-by-5 Foot Helmet Flag

I love the way these rooms turned out!
