Boy's room: a personalized place

Inspiration: For kids' changing tastes, inexpensive style is the way to go. The album headboard is made of plywood, plexiglass, and vintage album covers found at a recycled books store. The window shade is from Ikea, dressed up with vinyl decals from BLIK Surface Graphics.

Steal this idea: The plexiglass face on the album headboard can easily be removed to change the album art or insert photos or fabric.
