Decorating a Teenage Boy's Bedroom

My buddy Kris has a son who is now a young man.
A college graduate!!!!!!!
But he wasn't always that way.
When I first met him he was a little@#$!!!!!
He would play cards with us, and go to the movie's with us.....
He would insert himself into every conversation asking....
"What's that mean?????",
now I'm lucky if I get a hug.....
AND I HAVE TO ASK FOR IT!!!!!
But,
over the course of him growing up, we decorated his room.
The bed is a mahogany Empire sleigh bed that Kris snagged from a local antique store for a really good price because it is an odd size.
But that's OK because her son is odd!!!!!
(see what happen's Kieran when you don't want to hug me?????
You get trashed on the internet!!!!!)
Over the bed we hung a 1920's football homecoming banner that we had framed in black with a yellow mat.
It works with the sporty themes in the room.
For lighting we found these swing arm sconces at Pottery Barn.
The dark tones of the metal relate to the black hue of the frame.
I always think of how every thing will relate that I plan on hanging together on a wall.
That's if I plan in advance.
I usually just collect a ton of #$% and see what goes together.

Then we hit Bed Bath and Beyond for the bedding.
We decided that denim was the way to go, as a teenage boy couldn't destroy it.
The bucking bronco pillow was something that Kris has had so long that she doesn't remember where it came from.
NOTICE HOW WELL IRONED THE PILLOWCASES ARE!!!!! 
This is how they really looked.

I used the wrinkle remover in PicMonkey that's used on faces to remove the wrinkles in the pillow cases!!!!
Another of my stellar side by sides!!!!
This just tickles my funny bone.
I mean....
I got home after photoing this room, and looked at my pictures, and was horrified by how bad the wrinkles were.
AND I WAS ABLE TO FIX IT!!!!!
I did the same thing to Kris's portrait.
But don't tell her I told you.....
(I mean, she is over 50 for goodness sake!)

I will show the rest of the room next time.

On that note,

Hey! I need some of that there wrinkle remover, just for my upper lip (not really, need it all over) and for all those tablecloths that keep ending up in my house!
