Only in Texas!

 I am fully aware that this room will not appeal to the tastes of the masses! Only in Texas and various other southern states, will friends appreciate my son's room. Yes, it does have guns (not real ones!) in it and yes, there are depictions of dying ducks. What's a mom to do? It was exactly what my sweet boy asked for when we moved into our house a handful of years ago.


My handy husband made the gun rack when he was in high school. Who knew it would one day reside in his son's room! Weird, huh? My talented dad made the hunter silhouette. He used foam board, so it's lightweight and only needed a little tack to keep it in place. Check out the crocodile...he made that too!
Here's a better shot:


Isn't it cool how the tail hangs over the baseboard? Mr. Crocodile was made out of a thin piece of wood.

Today's Roomspiration Party continues at All Things Bright and Beautiful. You guessed it...jump over there for great ideas for kid's rooms.

Disclaimer- no animals were harmed in the decorating of this room!

I'd love to know your thoughts...leave me a few.

OMG My son would DIE to have this room. We are working on a hunting room as well!!! That wall is amazing. I totally agree...it is not everyone's "cup of tea" but that room would excite 50% of the members of my household :) What is the material used for the "duck blind" on the wall?? Seriously, LOVE this room!!!

Considering I only have girls this room is completely different from theirs... that is why I find it so interesting and original.
Congrats.

It is not my taste either, but it is unique! I love the reed on the wall!

Sweet pajamas, that is some room! I'm from Arkansas so I totally get it. Hey, when it comes to a theme- go big or go home, am I right??

Nice job!

MNgirl, The reed's are just that, reeds. It's a screen of them found in the garden department of our local grocery store. I've seen them recently at Lowe's or Home Depot too. Thanks for your kind words!
