Many hallelujahs being shouted around here! The boys bedroom is done and they love it. So I love it. The last time I redid a boys' room they were so little, and it was my first post ever! (moment of silence for kids growing up). This time around it was challenging to combine interests of an eight year old and a twelve year old with requests that were worlds apart. One wanted forest the other stars. One loves blue, the other green. Green people! Why is that color so hard for me to decorate with? But green it is. I hope this post gives you some boys bedroom ideas. I painted almost every nook and cranny, so it took more than a few moons. If your debating changing your boys' bedroom and catering to their interests DO IT! It's so fun.

Snowboard Storage Rack -- D
Add snowboarding to my list of loves. I crazy love being on the mountain! I taught snowboarding at Winter Park in Colorado and despite my disdain for being cold, snowstorms make me giddy. A season pass is the best remedy to any snow storm or cold winter. I'm jealous the east coast is getting pummeled with snow this year and we are so, so dry!

In addition to a detailed how to list I'll be adding plans for the racks soon.
Material list for snowboard storage rack:
2 x 3 x 6 board (1 x 3 x 6 will also work)
3/4" dowel: Two pieces 48" length each (total of 96") … Read more...

The.last.bedroom.project. Done! On man, I am so glad! The hanging bookshelf in the boys bedroom was FUN. I crazy love reading and so do *some* of my children. The moment you walk in our front door there is a new giant bookshelf. It's important to me that each bedroom in the house has a space dedicated to reading. Last week I finished the desk and this bookshelf completes the room (if my kids ever clean it). My oldest son is 12 and sadly has grown out of trucks and trains but still shares a room with his younger bro. So with the room, and this bookshelf in particular, I tried to find a balance between the two kids and I think this hanging bookshelf is just the ticket.
The hanging bookshelf inspiration came from a bookshelf I saw on Amazon. It is … Read more...
