When we moved, I wanted to create a special space for Stepson.  There was no discussion.  He wanted an Army bedroom.  Army… Army… Army… just like his Father.

His was the first room I designed and completed, so please excuse the average paint job… I’ve gotten much better since then.  I used several different color greens and browns to give it a little more depth and interest.

Between buying the house and literally furnishing it from scratch, we were on a tight budget.  The problem… I like nice things.  And for Stepson’s bedroom… I was coveting Pottery Barn Kid’s Camp Collection.  But not the price.  And then I remembered…. JCPenney.

Although not available any more, their Ethan Collection was almost identical to the Camp Collection.  At about half the price.  I purchased the bed, night stand, and dresser.   You can’t beat JCPenney for great style at a great price!

I love the beadboard style.  The bed also came with a trundle.

Remember the Camo Blinds DIY?  I made these blinds myself to match the room for super super cheap!

All of the prints are from Hubby’s career as a Green Beret.

My Grandfather brought this map back with him from WWII.  My Father gave it to Hubby and we had it framed for Stepson’s room.

And last but not least, the DIY boy scout bunting I made for him.

I love how this room turned out and even more important, Stepson loves his space.  It’s totally him.  I hope you enjoyed how I created this space on a budget, with some special family pieces, and some DIY’s.
Love, hugs, and camo is the new pink.
