Expedit in boys room gets country look

Materials: Expedit, wood boards, driftwood stain.

Description: We have Cowboy/country theme in our children’s bedroom.

Now the rest of the room has been updated. We have Expedit shelves, and placed boards around. I stained it with driftwood colour.

You’ll see more pictures of the room here.

My first hack posted here was the boys cowboy bed.

  1. I went to the jotun website, but can’t find a way to purchase the stain. Where did you buy it? I live in the US.

    which color did you use for the wood? is it a paint or a stain? I love the effect

      Hi Adriana! I used stain, and it’s called driftwood. Brand name is Jotun Lady. Some places I had 2 coats, others 3, just to make it more lively. Hope this helps you.. thanks for comment :)

    Great idea and really makes the room come together well!
    Love your take on Cowboy/Country!

  4. That’s a very neat idea! I will have to check out your blog and see what other creative things you’ve come up with!

    Love the make over, would love to see a picture of what it looks like open curtain to see the contrast between the white, wood and fabric but if your boys are anything like the ones I know then maybe hidding it might be a better plan!
