Henry's "Industrial Cool" Corner

I have talked about my love for the industrial look for children's rooms in the past; while I couldn't see this look for Holly, Henry has always had that rebellious, rock and roll attitude that suits this look perfectly. With his new shelf painted with chalkboard paint, we decided to do some re-arranging (mostly because Henry wanted to impress his Grandma, who visits today). Here it is!
 I absolutely love the size of that industrial desk (the sides also fold down to fit into little corners). The vintage chair relates to his red shelves on the other side of the room...

And yes, that is a mini flying V! Henry has loved music all of his life (the faster, the better!). I think this look suits him perfectly. Everything (except for some of the toys) was thrifted as well. Here's the breakdown:
Desk: $10, garage sale
Chair: 2 for $5, already red!
Shelf: free (side of the road), spray paint and chalkboard paint left over from other projects
Typewriter: $2, garage sale
Art: Cash print, gift from grandpa, Clash poster from Henry's Mom's first apartment.
What do you think?
