My Son's Skateboard Room

Hello all! Hope you're all doing well!

Baby boy #5 will be joining this world in about 4 1/2 weeks or so and I've been busy "nesting" and trying to get ready for the little guy!  I can't wait to meet him! Not to mention that I'm SO ready to be done being pregnant.

With that being said, it was time to start changing some rooms around in my home to create a new nursery.  So... for the past couple of weeks, I've been doing just that.

Today, I'm sharing my second oldest son's skateboard themed room, before I took it all apart to turn this room into the nursery again.

This is what it looked like when my second oldest moved into it:
 He totally loves skateboarding and many different kinds of sports, so I created a skateboard room.

This room was the nursery a while back. 
 It's been different now for at least a year or more. I just never got around to sharing it with you until now. 
The bedding, rug and curtains came from my oldest son's room.  That 'World Traveler Room' is totally different now too.  It's now more of a music room, because my oldest LOVES music.

The skate poster above the bed is from All Posters.com.  It's this one HERE, but mine is much larger.

You can find all kinds of Skateboard Decor in my Amazon Store.

 The skateboard pillow sham is from Pottery Barn Teen. The pillowcases behind are from Walmart.
 The lamps are from Target.
 The skateboards on the wall were inspired by Pottery Barns' Skate Deck Wall Art.
 
But... I didn't want to buy new skateboard decks, as we had plenty of them. So I removed the wheels from some old skateboards & spray painted fun designs on them.  I printed the No Speed Limit onto paper and still plan to glue it onto the board, but haven't yet... it's just taped on ;)
The photo is from Costco ( I found a print that my son liked from their Image Gallery.)

For the hooks,  I  spray painted boards & added the wheel tracks (or whatever they're called) from the skateboards that I took apart.
 For this wall... I used old skateboards, took the wheels off,  spray painted them...
 ... got the hanging brackets from Target...
... and made skateboard shelves.
:)
I bought these hooks from a friend.  They're from Pottery Barn from quite a few years back.  I don't even know if they sell them anymore.
Today.. this room looks NOTHING like this... It is now the new nursery.  I'm almost done putting it all together and when I finish it, I do hope to share it with you.

Before I get to showing you what this room looks like now that it's back to a nursery, I'll show you where I moved this skateboard room.  I shared parts of the toy room with you in the past. That's where my second oldest was moved to.  At the end of this week or the beginning of next week, I hope to share all the photo's of what the toy room looked like before it changed too.

May you be a little inspired!
Until next time,
DaNita
