A Boy's Room




Introduction: A Boy's Room

About: "Every child is born blessed with a vivid imagination. But just as a muscle grows flabby with disuse, so the bright imagination of a child pales in later years if he ceases to exercise it" is one of my favor...

We decided to redo my son's bedroom.

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Door

An appropriate sign for my son's door considering he loves walking around the house with no shirt on. The shark tooth he earned for himself in Hawaii by swimming out to a coral berm.

Step 2: Cupboard Seat

We converted his wardrobe into a sitting / reading area. "Bacon" likes to keep him company.

Step 3: Look Upwards

If you look upwards you might be in for a little surprise: Murray the Ninja skeleton.

Step 4: Animal Collections

My son is quite interested in animals and taxidermy. Here is both his toy and animal collections.

Step 5: Taxidermy

The best of my son's animal collection are hung on the wall. He made the walking stick himself.

Step 6: Bunk Bed

The pets are kept on the top bunk and he sleeps on the bottom.

Step 7: Weapon Box

At the base of the bunk bed is the weapon collection

Step 8: Guitar

My son likes to sit on his cow rug and play his guitar. If he keeps growing his hair he will have mastered the "rock star" look.

    He is definitely interesting.

    I went to the supermarket with him and he started entertaining everyone by "performing to the overhead music".

    when my daughter and son shared a room we painted half the room pink and half blue and all the dead animals were kept out of sight in a box. Now that my son is too old to share he has been able to express himself more fully in his own room. I wonder what his next step is ... dirt bikes ... BB guns
