1. We made one of the bed­side ta­bles in our son’s room by at­tach­ing hair­pin legs to an old, green bin that we got at a yard sale for $2.

2. The other bed­side ta­ble came to­gether by re­mov­ing the wooden lid from an old crate (found at an an­tiques store for $10) and screw­ing hair­pin legs to the un­der­side.

3. The sec­re­tary desk and bed came from a thrift store, and we painted it black us­ing a can of chalk­board spray paint.

4. Our son made his towel hook rack by screw­ing some in­dus­trial-style hooks from Lib­erty

Hard­ware to a rem­nant piece of wood that he stained him­self.

The Zanz­ibar tile from Riad tile was the in­spi­ra­tion for the bath­room’s de­sign. The old sink was a gift from a friend. It, and other black ac­cents in the mir­ror and hard­ware, bring thewhole look to­gether.
