Wood planked walls?  Check.  Mahogany furniture?  Check.  Leather?  Fake deer head?  Check!  Katie Bower doesn’t mess around, especially when it comes to decorating her little man’s pad.  This mom, photographer, blogger, and decor junkie set about creating the ultimate baby man cave with the help of her husband and a few money-saving DIY projects.  (The wood plank wall?  DIYed from pesticide-free pallets.  Read about that project right here.)  The result is something completely unconventional and utterly fantastic!
