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.
Let’s break it down! In addition to painting the walls and ceiling I built almost everything else in the space. Each pic links to a tutorial on the project, so knock yourselves out! How about starting with my favorite project in the room the barn wood furniture? I still can’t believe how awesome these turned out! Dresser, nightstands, and a re-used headboard:
My kids favorite feature, because they’re not old enough to appreciate the awesome furniture yet, is the painted wall murals. The forest one is my fave. They love the starry night mural with all their favorite constellations. Wall murals do take a while, but they’re worth it, they just bring in their cute personalities into the space and tie the colors together.
Being pinned and loved a lot are the industrial lamps I built. For the amount of time and money the lights required, this project is a no-brainer!
And last but not least the read/study corner of the room with the hanging bookshelf and desk:
I’m just dying that I don’t have a before picture of the room! Here are a couple of pictures of the renovating process to give you an idea *warning these photos may contain messes that are disturbing to some viewers*:
Now I do the happy dance every time I walk by the room! Like my kids actually want to be in there now:
I would love to hear your comments, questions or even renovations you’ve done in your kid rooms! Thanks for ready, and happy creating!
