I bought these shelves because they looked industrial, like the rest of his room. There use to be two long black fabric panels hiding the messiness. Those are long gone to somewhere that is still a mystery.....teenagers, ugh! You can see that the walls are shocking green and you can make out the one post on the loft bed to the left in the image to the right. (He is actually laying asleep in this bed as I sneak snap this picture.) He also has a pretty cool classic rock album collection displayed on the walls and a black futon to lay around on. This is what the room looked like a while back when we completed it.
So, I have decided to replace the shelves. It was a good experiment that didn't yield the best results. His bedroom is at the front door of the house and I am pretty tired of the mess. I am instituting: Project Hide Clutter. (Can I find something big enough to stuff him into as well??!!)
I have spent sometime looking on Craigslist. I have seen a few options, but none of them panned out because they were either too high in price, or already gone. Here are a few things I have been considering. I will most likely paint whatever I find black. (I know you find this shocking.)
|Nice and big....but it is too far away.|
|An armoire is possible. But|
would he keep the doors closed?
|Maybe buy something already done??|
Doesn't seem like me.
|I see these as I peruse Craigslist.|
Aren't they so kitschy adorable?!
Oh, the distractions!!!!
|Already sold. Darn.|
