Several years ago, I painted and sort of, recreated a theme in our youngest sons room. He loves ‘board sports’; skateboards, snow boards, scooter/rip-sticks…..etc. I decided that it would be fun to create some shelving out of skateboards. So, we purchased a couple of skateboards for about $9 a piece from Wal-mart and some brackets from Home Depot. My husband attached the brackets and then mounted them on the walls for some books and things. Super cheap, colorful and easy DIY. Sadly, the coloring in the photos is not the best…..sorry!
Hanging wall mural is from PB Teen online, wall decals are from Target, and the old vintage lockers were a craigslist find years ago. They were purchased for use in our laundry room until handy hubby and I built a large mud room wall/cubby/storage unit. So I spray painted he lockers blue and moved them into our sons room. Works perfectly in his room. Slalom ski was an antique store find and the old snow board above the closet was given to our son by my brother. Always adding a little something.
