I recently (finally) put some finishing touches on Jude's bedroom.
(Even though he's slept in there for almost 2 years.)
His room was a "spare room" for the previous homeowners, but more specifically was the pretend classroom for their daughter. We used it as a playroom when we first moved into the house.
We thought about keeping the chalkboard wall, but all of the chalk dust accumulated on the baseboards and I didn't like how messy it was for a bedroom.
We washed the chalkboard wall and dried it, then primed over that wall. Then I painted the room when I was 8 months pregnant (needless to say, I don't recommend that unless you have a personal masseuse).
Now a very happy 4 year-old calls this room his own!

Stop by tomorrow for a tutorial on how I made the slipcovered headboard.
