My Little Boy's Vintage Room

Antique bedroom set bought on Craigslist.  Thought about painting it but the wood look speaks masculinity.

What are BOYS really? .........                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

My favorite piece in the whole room is this antique amoire which I bought at an antique store.  No room for it anywhere else in the house but I think it matches perfectly in here!                                                                                        

Love the details!                                                         
Beadboard on the amoire.                                         

The reading corner.  Old Truck pillow from Pottery Barn.  And a good ole TEXAS pillow thrown in the mix (my birth state.)                                                                     

Mr. Froggy peering over the basket of books.
