Happy Friday!!! I finally finished my son’s room makeover. Poor kid has been asking for over two years when I was going to work on his room.
It feels so good to be done and be able to share the final reveal with you. The theme started four years ago when I converted his extra closet into a reading nook. The blue, white and red work beautifully together.
When Grammy made the gorgeous red, white and blue star quilt, the theme was set in stone! A quilt that beautiful deserves to have an entire room built around it! The additional bedding was purchased at IKEA.
I also added new furniture by creating a wall-mounted desk.
I also built my son’s loft bed to give him more floor space in his room.
I made the decision to put the ladder at the foot of the bed to maximize the space in his room.
The mirrored locker hides most of his stuffed animals neatly inside.
One of my son’s favorite spots is on this convertible bean bag chair where he likes to open it up and lounge while reading. I bought it from Overstock.com. I picked up the lantern at the Lowe’s in Hampstead, NC. I haven’t seen it at our local Lowe’s so I’m not sure if it’s a regional item.
Remember the cute little storage tub bench I made? It fits in nicely with the color scheme…
…and provides more hidden storage.
My son has so many spots to plunk down and read. I love that he’s my little bookworm.
This has been such a change from his room before. It’s truly amazing what you can do when you have a little more time, some paint and wallpaper!
I hope you enjoyed the tour of my son’s red, white and blue room. It doesn’t stay this neat normally, but now that he has ample storage, it’s easy to clean up quickly.
I’m hoping this makeover will last him well into his teenage years. And I hope I survive the teenage years! Any tips for me on dealing with a teenage boy? At least I have five more years. Wait…my oldest will be a teen in three years. Gulp.
