This is our jumping off point: a tiny bedroom that has $3 “oops” paint on the walls and majorly lacks storage and a workspace for a fifteen year old high school sophomore. (Those of you who have read about this space before will be happy to know I finally moved the preschool desk out of here!)
I shared this design plan for Sean’s “Rugged & Refined” teen bedroom in the fall. The only element Sean really wants is navy walls and we landed on Sherwin Williams’ Naval after trying a few samples out.
In December I completed the first big DIY for this space – a long, narrow inlaid wood desktop that is currently sitting on temporary legs. It spans an entire wall and is great for Sean to spread out when he does his homework!
But oh, my friends, I have so many more projects to finish to call this room done!
Paint the walls and trim
DIY cabinet and pull out laundry hamper for the desk base
DIY shoe storage
Closet makeover that includes hanging clothes storage
Some kind of interesting ginormous art for the huge bulletin board
A top secret situation with the bed that will make this makeover so worth the wait!
I guess it’s time to accept the fact that my baby is not a Mitey Mite football player in second grade anymore!!
I’m looking forward to joining Stephanie and everyone who will be sharing their updates each Tuesday and linking up at Casa Watkins Living!
If you have a space that needs a little loving, come link up with me and let’s knock some things off our 2018 to-do list!
For more bedroom projects, see my older son’s One Room Challenge Moody-Masculine-Mighty Teen Room makeover that is chock-full of DIYs,
my daughter’s teen room makeover that includes a tutorial on converting two twin beds to a king,
and our master bedroom that I recently spruced up for fall and winter with some cozy touches.
Many thanks to Stephanie for the motivation to get Sean’s room DONE!!
I’ll be back next Tuesday with an update on this space.
Hope your year is off to a great start!
