It is time for the BIG REVEAL of our Boy’s Room Refresh! This Spring, many designers and bloggers joined the One Room Challenge and have spent the last eight weeks renovating a room and sharing their progress. I chose my son Trevor’s bedroom to refresh and am happy share the finished room!
Let’s begin by reminding you what the room looked like BEFORE:
Trevor had a dark room and lacked storage for all of the books and movies he’s collected. My goal was to give him needed storage and create a room that was less chaotic and reflected his personality.
OK, enough talk…here’s the AFTER:
My vision actually came to life! When I began this One Room Challenge, I knew that the focal point of the room would be an accent wall with a bed flanked by bookshelves. The colors are simple and repeated throughout the space. Sherwin Williams Salty Dog was painted on the accent wall and dots of blue are mixed around the room along with black, white and several shades of brown.
Trevor is a film major with a minor in Japanese, so the Japanese movie posters he chose worked well with our decor.
I am still in love with these simple curtain panels. The pattern is so mid century modern. The cherry stained dresser that was in the room when we began was painted with chalk paint and waxed for protection. I will be sharing that transformation soon.
What boy’s room doesn’t have a gaming center? One of the most used spaces is not the best looking, but is functional for Trevor. I purchased the TV stand from Wayfair and hung his television over it.
I am so happy that this project is finished and that I was able to give Trevor a great new room for him to enjoy. I truly feel that being in a clean and organized space can make a difference in your overall mood and productivity. We’ll see if this works with Trevor. A mother can hope, can’t she?
Thank you for stopping by Mulch and Paint and following along during my One Room Challenge! This was a fun project to take on and I am very happy with the end result. I want to also give a big THANK YOU to my daughter in law, Kaytlen, for helping me bring this idea to life. She spent a lot of time shopping online for items, staging the room and just being there to advise me. You can visit her blog at kaytlenyoung.com.
