Week 3 - Tween Boy Bedroom Update

Can't believe we're almost halfway into the  ORC series! Hew!
One thing for sure, being in this series has motivated me to forge on (because otherwise this room would still be in the same state as it was last week for the next month or so!)!;-)

Anyway, this week, we added the lighting on the dormer space....



It's from Menards, very affordable but I think pretty enough for a boys space. Love that the brown ties in with the furniture in the big room. I placed the wall sconces a little bit higher because I want a higher bench to overlook the window. It's nice to read while you see the outside right?

I also did one of my fave DIY's on the book shelves!

Got Wrapper From TJ Maxx


So I thought, why not here as well!

The Bookshelves are both from the 'RE line' from TARGET which has been there already in his room before, just needed to spruce it up more with this.


Also wanted to show you what a big impact the Navy in this room has been.

BEFORE

AFTER

We are really very happy with the color!
Cool, peaceful and according to my son, 'Musculine'!!!


That's it for now. We're working on the built-in bench and on trying to organize the walls, hopefully, I can be done and show it next week!!!

Now let's go on and check on the other's progress in their rooms!

Have a Great day!

  2. The new color is dramatic and masculine and I love the contrast with the door and the trim, and yes, gift wrapping paper is extremely versatile!

  14. The navy walls are fantastic. I also love your new wall sconces (so pretty!) and using inexpensive wrapping paper to spruce up the bookcase. Looking forward to see your built-in bench next week!

  16. I love a window seat. I agree about the navy blue being more masculine and what boy doesn't want that. Using wrapping paper - how cool is that. Looks like things are moving right along.
