Boy’s Industrial Transportation Room Reveal


RH Knock off room

It has been a long time coming, to finally finish my sons room and to post about it. This room began an entire year ago as we were packing away our furniture and small apartment to move to our now home. Of course like any designer and DIY addict you start the planning for your new space before you move in and  usually you start on Pinterest. I wanted to start with the kids rooms since we had most of the furniture and it just felt right for them have their cozy little rooms while the rest of the house was in chaos. We painted day 1 and added the floors that same weekend we moved in. We decided to leave most of the decorating for a time when all the projects in the house had settled down and we could concentrate more on them. Well…my little girls room is still coming along but I can finally say Anthony’s Industrial Transportation Room is complete! Well…I am sure I will always tweak things here and there, but I will definitely share if I do.

The main inspiration for this room has been RH baby. I just can not help but drool over each page in the catalog along with their website. Every e-mail I receive for current sales I am always browsing for ideas and the possibility that I can actually afford to purchase just about anything for my kiddies and their rooms. I was extremely fortunate a year ago to start this makeover process with a duvet from one of their sales they were having. I believe this duvet was discontinued since then, but it was exactly what I was looking for and I was so excited to find it for such a great deal.

Each piece for the room we have collected here and there for the past year. I have found items at home goods, tj max, target, hobby lobby, one kings lane, and some items and furniture we already had. Along with collecting decor for this room we also had some DIY projects that helped make this space possible. I posted Monday our most recent project Faux Steel Closet Door and about two weeks ago the RH Baby Rope Shelf Knock Off. Each of these projects helped add to the industrial feel that we were going for in the space.

Well I think I have said enough lets just show you the room…

As much as I really like this DIY painting with transportation overlapping words, I really wanted to put a propeller here, but could not find one that worked. I am sure I will still be on the hunt for one but I did not want to post this reveal without something above his bed.


Here comes my honesty again…I could not bare to tell the hubby he did not hang these straight…not sure if you ladies bite your tongue after the Mr. does you a favor and it’s not perfect. It is all about picking your battles! It’s fine though…you did not notice ; )

  1. I looove those shelves and the closet door! The whole room looks great! I have never seen those transportation storage boxes, and I have been looking for something like that for my son’s room. Thanks so much for including a source list.

    1. Thanks so much Megan! I know…those boxes were a must! I bought them almost a year ago on One Kings Lane. I wish I knew the company name or else I would share that too. Hopefully they put them on their site again.

  2. Hi Deb. What a great room for a pirate..I mean big boy. Your kids are darling and he can enjoy that room for years to come. Thank you for your kind words about my painted chest. I appreciate them..Happy Weekend..Judy

  3. Hi Deb! I’m featuring this room on the Enchanting Inspiration link party this coming week! I adore your knock off industrial pipe shelving in your son’s room! Great job with that space!

  4. I love it! So classy. Really makes me want a little boy but I’m going to resist the urge to get baby fever. haha I definitely know what you mean about not saying anything with the Mr. does something not to your liking. My curtains throughout my house have been sporting the “high water” look for months now because I hate to tell him that the curtain rods need to be lowered about 3 inches. Not worth a marital riff. 🙂 Great job as always!

    1. Thanks so much Lauren! Yep rather stay married then have picture frames that are straight and curtains touching the floor ; ) lol

  5. Wow, you’ve done an amazing job with this room! I love it! I’m in the process of re-doing our boys’ room, so seeing yours is very inspiring!

  6. Whoa! I love this room design. My favorite piece is the artwork over the bed. 😉 Even if you find a propeller, you have to put those pieces somewhere else in the room.

    Pinning! Thanks so much for sharing on Show-Licious!

  7. You did an amazing job! I am at the beginning of our new home’s decorating and can appreciate how much time & thought you have put into it. I pinned it. Have a beautiful day!

    1. Hi Tara, Thank you for letting me know! I’ve been having some back end problems on the blog, they are currently being resolved.
