It's that time of year again when Young House Love and Bower Power host their quarterly Pinterest challenges. I love these challenges and luckily I was in the middle of a project that fit perfectly when they announced it.

The rules are simple: Pick something from your Pinterest boards and put your own spin on it and show what you made.

Here is my first inspiration from the Matsutake blog:

Desk

Here is my second inspiration picture from Decor and the Dog. See that leg on the bed. Love that leg. (pfftttt - whistle)

Here is what dh and I built together two weeks ago using our miter saw and our new Kreg Jig - It was a Christmas present last year from the house ;).

Here is what the wall looked like before, after I painted it earlier this year.

And here come all the pictures of the "after".

In addition to building the desk, I also stained and finished some Ash wooden planks that we mounted with some of IKEA's EKBY BJÄRNUM shelf brackets.

(proud mama alert) The green and orange derby car took home 3rd place in B's den. B and dh built the blocks they hang from. They hang from a dowel they drilled into the wood.

B's first portrait. Read more about each piece from his gallery wall here.

This is a FEJKA plant from IKEA that just happened to fit perfectly into an ENSIDIG vase. I really like that you can see the black pot through the glass. I think it adds to the look.

B put together that dinosaur last summer. And the Lego vehicle is something he put together a few years ago. The blue boxes I got on sale at IKEA. B put them together last week.

B's embroidered Mario, which he made last Christmas and it has been the inspiration piece for the room.

And a view towards the hall way. If you look at the upstairs hall reveal from last week, you can see the same painting although I have since hung it a bit higher when I happened to pass by with a hammer.

And one more time: the queen bed with trundle that dh and I built, the tufted headboard I re-covered, the cubby I built, the super sized Mario wall art B and I put up together and the IKEA chair I recovered with white faux fur. The curtains I dyed and hemmed and the long green and red pillow I sewed.

Here is the gallery wall by itself. The lamp is the FORSÅ work lamp from IKEA.

There you have it. B's new desk and floating shelves.

Check back tomorrow for a tutorial on how we built the desk.
