I found this license plate map at Hobby Lobby one day at 50% off and I knew my son Ian would just love to have it in his room. He loves all things vehicle related. In all seriousness, he has an oil filter on display in there. He is that into cars!
On a separate occasion months later I came across this little side table with top to bottom drawers. It is covered in a faded, retro license plate fabric and it’s the perfect size for the wall space between the bedroom door and closet door in Ian’s room. I couldn’t resist!
The same day all the metal signs in Hobby Lobby were on sale so I picked up all the car signs with appealing colors that I could find. I also found this adorable license plate picture frame and a Route 66 lamp that was just the right size.
I remembered a collection of old license plates that hung in my parents’ basement and had my mom send them to me while I put out a call for states we didn’t have on facebook.
The result is Ian’s new ‘Route 66 Room,’ as we’re calling it.
So far we have plates from Texas, Virginia, Colorado, Nevada, Kentucky, Kansas, Minnesota, Vermont, Indiana, Hawaii and Missouri. It will be fun to add plates to the wall as we find them or receive them from different people. If you have any plates to send, let me know!
