A Little Americana in my Life

Well here is my son’s room. A work in progress. I only took a picture of part of the room because the other walls are completely blank. 🙂

Flags seem to be really popular right now and they are really quite easy to make! I did use LolaNova’s tutorial to make the layered flag (it’s in the corner you can’t really see it but the close up I took ended up really blurry.) I think it turned out well though.

I bought the unfinished cork board at Hobby lobby for $13 and stained it myself. The one year old was destroying any artwork the preschooler brought home and I wanted a display area for him. Plus I needed something big enough to cover up our big ugly fuse box. Why they put the fuse box in a bedroom I’ll never know.

I made the red, white and blue Thomas Train pillow case my son is laying on. And found this awesome Pledge of Allegiance plaque on

This room isn’t finished yet though. I still have that cowboy vinyl to put up along with some other items, I know you are excited to see how it ends up! I know I am!

P.S. I love this post my friend Lara did on Americans from America!



  1. Very cute Meagan! I keep thinking I should decorate my kids rooms, but then I don’t. Maybe you can motivate me…

    • You just have find a theme you _want_ to do. I picked Americana because 1) It’s classic/always in style 2) There are tons of decor options so decorating on a budget is much easier 3) It will transition with the boys as they get older. We’ll switch out Thomas Train for something more age appropriate when he’s 12. 🙂

  2. I LOVE the Americana theme. So universal yet you can do so much with it. And thanks for the shout out. 🙂
