Boy's Vintage Camping - Northwoods Room
So, JD decided that the Vikings inspired room was getting a little old and opted for something a little more woodsy and outdoorsy. So, here is my attempts at fulfilling his wishes...a few of the finer details!!
My dad has collected these patches for years - I put them to use in a shadow box.
Nothing says outdoors like an antler light switch!
I LOVE this lamp!!! I found a vintage minnow bucket on Etsy and bought a small candlestick lamp from Goodwill and a lamp shade from Walmart - threw it all together and created this awesome lamp.
I hung a few vintage bait and tackle tins on the wall next to the shadow box.
Of course we couldn't totally get rid of the Vikings - Adrian Peterson still makes his presence known - just not in such and obvious way! He now "hangs out" in the closet - a little nook - just for Jonathan.
All in all, I love how his room turned out - but most of all - HE LOVES IT!! After our summer trip to South Dakota I was able to add a few more authentic details - I got a real set of antlers, a boys scout thermos and a cool oil painting from an antique store in Souix Falls.
