Everett is my tiny farmer. He comes from a long line of farmers & rough & tough men. He got his name from my dearly beloved Grandfather - Everett. (This is the crazy old man that smoked lots of cigars, always carried a green coffee thermos, and lovingly called Jade a pussy - he was a riot). My Everett's Pa Stuart (my Dad) is also a grain & cattle farmer. Everett will truly learn from the best, and as soon as he's potty trained - I think he'll go with his Pa a lot more often. Who doesn't enjoy a fast gator ride in the woods with cows chasing them for feed?
Second, to his love of all things cattle & tractors, is trucks. He adores anything on wheels & his favorite activity is scooting around trucks or tractors around the staircase. He'd do it for hours. So his room is a truck & equipment bedroom painted barn red & topped off with denim tab curtains hooked like bibs.
I love his bed. It's heavy duty & large. It came out of the top of my Mom's shed. Don't you love amazing finds that are free! When we got it, it was very discolored & in poor shape so we spray painted it a bright yellow. It works well in his room and he loves his bed. He even likes to "fake" getting stuck between the slats so he can yell for help. He's something else my friends!
These pillows are his favorites! The square one was handmade by the lovely Jillian. He also adores the large stuffed tractor & concrete truck. His Pa Stuart has many tractors & is part owner in a concrete company - very fitting for Everett Mason's room. He even scoots these pillows around like they have actual wheels!
Here is another fox, an old metal box I adore, a bulldozer just like his Pa's & a collection of bed time reads. Top that off with an old traffic sign & he's thrilled. Don't you love this antique old paint gray table? I do!
This is Everett's armoire. I'm really in a personal debate with myself on this one. Like everything else wood in my home. To paint or not to paint - I'm just mulling it over still. It used to be Maggie's & the thought of painting it for some reason scares me a bit since it's been this way in my family for so long. However, I think it'd be really amazing in another color & perhaps more me. It's very handy though. It holds a lot of clothes & the right side could eventually fit a small TV on a shelf. It's topped off with some vintage suitcases for more storage & a hard hat from his Pa.
I hope you enjoyed Ev's bedroom. It is one of the rooms in my home that I feel needs the most work, but as I'm out junking I always tend to find him some more treasures to add to his spunky collections & personality.
