Frank and I were actually supposed to start this project over March break, but we got busy with some unexpected work and Nohl's room got shoved to the sidelines. So today, I thought I'd just show you the before pictures of his room and some pictures of boy rooms that I will be taking some ideas from.
Nohl's room is the teen-iest, is that a word?, in the house measuring 10x10. He has all hand me down furiture that really is a mish mash of junk!
There are still some aspects of his room that I will keep because I love them. I love the baskets under his bed, I love the shelf/curtain rod above his window that Frank made, and I love hooks...but other than that, EVERYTHING else needs an update! Awww, I think I just might shed a tear when that builder light plate comes down?? I'll just have to get over that one somehow.
I'm still not sure about the bed. It actually came from a girlfriend of mine down the street. She's had this bed set up in her basement for almost 8 years and didn't even know where it came from or whose it was...so we adopted it. I thought I might paint it either red or blue like this one.
Look at this amazing idea for a bed....a hanging bed is too cool! (pic: coastal living)
Now, I do have wainscotting in this bedroom, so I'm thinking about colours...do I use two colours or keep it uniform? I'm liking these combos of brown/white with hits of red and blue.
Well, I've got a lot to think about. We should be getting started in the next week, so come back to see what we've done! And by all means, if you have any suggestions, leave a comment below. Thanks for stopping by.
